Rocky, I do respect your lifestyle and opinion. One of the best friends I had in college was a vegetarian (not a vegan, but still ate no meat). I'm a hunter and a meat eater. We regularly had completely civil conversations about our lifestyle choices. She'd ask me if I got out hunting and how it went. I'd ask her for vegetarian recipes, so I could try something new.
I still don't think the zoo should refrain from feeding a horse head, but I do think I would be a really good idea to have a sign posted that told the parents what they would be exposing their children too.
Actually I don't think you and I would have that different ideas of how to raise a child. I teach children to respect all life, to be kind, and to be thoughtful. That's it in a nutshell. I spend a ton of time with my niece and have had some incredible conversations with her on some very touchy and difficult topics. I've basically been helping to raise her for the last three years and am probably the adult who spends the most consistent time with her, so I have some experience in raising a child. It's been rewarding to see her turn into a kind, thoughtful, respectful child. Sure she's still a little monster sometimes, but she's only human
