I think that's a huge part of why I'm realistic about death as well. I grew up on my grandpa's farm, and of COURSE you make friends and pets out of the adorable calves, and sweet goats and pigs with huge personality. So when you grow up as a small child being forced to acknowledge that your pet is going to feed you, it's difficult to see horses as any different - I hate cruelty of any animal, but I DO fully support USING animals. I am 110% against SPORT hunting - I am 110% for hunting for food. I think it's a waste to just dump carcasses in the ground.

You learn that death is natural, and you learn to respect the animals in death. My grandpa used to have Filipino friends who he raised animals for and they came over for butchering parties - it was so amazing having that in my childhood. They say a prayer for every animal before they kill it, and they use every SINGLE part of the animal including the blood. About the lowest thing you could do in their culture is mistreat a carcass - the animals are worth JUST as much in death as they are in life, if not more.

Very fascinating when you get to see how other cultures do it!

That is a very interesting sounding occasion Macabre. Many cultures greatle respect death and accept it as a part of life. It seems the american culture is hell bent on trying to hide from it and ignore it, which of course leads to so much information and kids growing up thinking killing and eating animals is cruel. I find this vary sad indeed.

I just want to say I like that they respected the animal and said a prayer for each one. If I were an animal I would want that done as I am givng my body toyou so you can survive and live..etc.

I don't think it's cruel to eat animals or kill them...I just couldnt do it. I couldn't and will not eat certain parts of the body either. But I just can't see stormy getting hacked up and being served on the dinner table.

Exactly! I grew up hunting and fishing....for food....that is what we are supposed to do! And we always use what we kill. One time we were out deer hunting and I shot a chipmunk.....they made me cook and eat it...lol...tasted like chicken!
We just learned if we shot it we were going to eat it....and I never saw hunting as being cruel or unusual. Though I have met many people that feel that way * rolls eyes*

Hunting the little deers on those ridiculous farms where you sit on top of the feeder and pop ole bamby when he is having his bedtime snack is very wrong IMO, but it does prevent those city slickers from going out and killing off all of the bucks just for their horns... I see that as sort of a necessary evil to prevent excessive sport hunting of bucks.

It isnt for sport as much as the trophy.

Nope, not at all. Most just go for the buck for the trophy. Bucks are actually in short suply around here so hunters are limited as to how many they can shoot a season. In my experience they are a much tougher meat(testosterone maybe) so my family usually go for the does.
