I wasn't really sure where I should post my thoughts ... So you lot got it :-)
I do love animals, and am moved by "cute" ones.
Yet I eat them. Roast Lamb, Veal... Yep, I eat them all.
I wonder how those of you, who are also 'carnivors', who also go 'gaa gaa goo goo, over a lamb', say,
I know I can't.
When I'm the one doing the food shopping, I go for animal products where I think the creatures have been humanely treated. Grass-fed beef, for example, is healthier than beef that's "finished" on grain. Pasture butter is healthier and tastier than regular butter.
I haven't noticed vegetarian restaurants being calmer. When I ate at Greens here in SF I couldn't hold a conversation with my husband.
and every now and then he 'regurgates" them. If I'm quick enough I can 'mop up/pick up the pieces' :-)
But MAX is an 'oblegate carnivore'. I am not.
And thanks to all the 'vegetarians' who made me feel even more guilty, but you might have noticed, in my OP, I did say ...I wonder how those of you, who are also 'carnivors'....
Yep, vegetarianism, is one answer. (although can anyone explain VEGANISM to me. It's not like we are 'killing anything") Honey? Sheesh!
Yes I do understand that some animals have to be exterminated. eg. Rabbits in Australia.
And we have had the same problem on "Lord Howe Island" and several other 'Antarctic Islands'
where introduced 'rats' and other animals have taken over. I do know that 'baby': Rats & Rabbits (bunnies) are cute yet, I feel I could still (humanely) kill them. The Pest! The greater good?
OMG. that does sound too much like a thing I do hate.
I hope you appreciate my quandry?
ETA. I just realized that the question is 'what value do you place on an animals versus humans life?'
I know this sounds like "Philsosopy 101". Probably is.
Our crocs have been around at least 400? Million years. Blame it on Tectonic plates.
Cane toads? Not suited/wanted here in Aussie.
But still, just an animal. T'is our fault.
ETA. Rick, what is a " dward"? If you mean "dwarf", I have never heard of a "dwarf" crocodile.
All the ones I have ever seen are bloody big. Try 5 m.+ for a max. OK. That one might have been 6 M. BIG!
