BuckFelize said:That said, I do think we have a duty to treat & dispatch furry things with some semblance of decency before eating them. Some of the methods and treatment meted out are downright barbaric. And some of the cnuts dispensing the treatment definitely have issues. I'm no vegetarian: I can dispatch a pheasant or rabbit without losing any sleep, but clubbing baby seals to death with a pick, feeding live chicks in to a mincer - or even thinking of Anne Widdecombe peeling for a party political broadcast leaves me feeling somewhat empty and ashamed.
We can't look after our planet. We can't look after anything that lives on it. And we don't seem to be very good at looking after ourselves. Great CV. I gather PETA are the US equivalent of the ALF - or suchlike? Whilst I disagree with some of the ALF's methods and naivete, I can see where they're coming from on more than one issue. But the burning issue here is chebs - and a trimmed Brazilian.
Please PETA. Less guilt, more chebs!
