I recently had a pet just passed away... and it was a devastating experience for me. I'm still grieving even though it's been 5 months.

In the last moments of her life, she was holding on to dear life, and it made me realise how much every animal wants to live. How precious life is.

And to take that away is just cruel.


Okay. So how would you go about justifying the eating of a burger? Eating meat is the source for evolution. So explain away at how the cavemen hunting for meat was cruel.

The difference is that cavemen hunted for survival and/or self-defence. Present day humans hunt for sports.


A good example would be the Japanese hunting whales. They know that whales are endangered but they still do it anyway. Sure they eat the meat afterwards... but it's not necessary because there are plenty of other fish that provide the same nutrients.

Some still hunt for food because a lot of people hate the atrocities of the meat industry. As shown below.

or they hunt for food just because they like it. if you've ever eaten bear, you'd know. I start drooling just by thinking about it.

I've fished before, always for food. I'm not a fan of when people catch and release. it's seems pointless to injure the fish like that.
I do want to go hunting for real... to eat of course. A lot of people where I work go elk hunting I'd love to tag along sometime.

Hunting is great...WITH ONLY YOUR FISTS! Its just not nearly as exhilarating when you have a weapon that gives you the upper hand. There needs to be a constant fear of losing your life at any moment. And the extra work involved ensures an appetite.

Whether it's to wear down the prey or hone hunting skills, many animals have the instinct to "play" with their prey.
Hunting for sport is part of us. You'd be surprised at how many children try or succeed in killing an animal when they're younger. Bow and arrow or maybe a bb gun, it's a left-over instinct from our hunter/gatherer days.

I've never met a hunter who didn't harvest the animal, whether they're going to eat it, sell it, gift it or a combination of the three.
Most hunters have a separate freezer for their meat.

I think hunting without harvesting is a rich person thing and obviously the majority of hunters aren't rich.

Hunting is a sport or people would harvest the animals like we do cow, pig and chicken. I had a relative who had a reindeer farm, there are people who do that sort of thing.

If you don't enjoy hunting, find one of them.

Plants feel and want to live, yet I don't hear you preaching about saving the fruits and vegetables. At least we don't eat the animals while they're alive like we do them.

First of all, I hate people who can sit there and let their pets suffer. Why not have it put down? If you did it properly, they don't feel a thing, they just go to sleep. If the animal suffered, you are the one that is cruel, not death.

I just can't understand a person who takes a basic necessity of life and declares is unacceptable behavior.

You might as well say that sex is cruel, or living in a home. or wearing clothing.

Are you kidding me?

My rabbit had an infection, I took her to the vet and he injected antibiotic in her.

She stopped shaking after the injection, so I thought she was going to be fine, but in the morning she was lying on the side, heart beating.. but eyes have gone pale...

And two seconds later... the body went stiff... and hard. It was a devastating experience for me...

It's not like she had cancer and death could be foretold. It was an infection... she had a chance of surviving.

Stop being so judgmental.

You have no idea how much I love my rabbit; she was one of a kind... smart like a human child.

I would have paid $10000000000 for any potion that could help her.

I cried for three nights after my rabbit's death... and having to bury her myself too... you have no idea the pain I'm going through.

If i knew she was going to die, I would have put her to sleep too, I'm not stupid.

Personally I have no issue with hunting. I used to hunt deer, but the year I finally got one, I froze my ass off, got my truck epically stuck trying to get it out, and as it would turn out, I can't cook venison to save my life. So now the shotgun's kept around only for home defense.......
