I will clarify my views by saying that I don't condone poachers that kill and sell animal parts for profit, although there are poachers who kill animals illegally in order to eat and survive (they don't have a publix nearby) I also do not condone trophy hunters that kill only for ego and to mount the heads in their living room.

But hunters who kill deer etc for the meat to feed their family, and shoppers buying neatly shrink wrapped packages at their local market, there is no difference between the two. The hunter on a hunting farm, where animals are raised to be killed, is no different from average shopper.

I think this may be an estrogen vs. testosterone thing.
The only reason mankind survived is because they taste bad.

Wrong. We survived because we were smarter and had superior survival skills. Think the lions ate this guy because he tasted bad?
This whole thread is foolish

some of these posters think an animal attacks THINKING about vengeance. Man is one of the only animals, other than monkeys that has any concept of vengeance. An animal, or most animals will by instinct attack to protect it's young or perhaps it's territory.

So now we are switching from humans surviving because they taste bad to "its all about the vengeance"

If a human, or a bear, attacks to protect their young, what is their main motivation? Here is a clue.

Humans are animals too.

It is very hard to think like others on certain issues. I have never understood boxing, or wrestling on any level. Again I think it goes back to hunter/gatherer, estrogen/testosterone thing.

I am not a vegan, and have tried to teach my kids and grandkids not be vegans, simply because I believe it is not healthy for carnivores. But all things considered, there are other personality issues that we were either born with or adopted in each our own very different lives. In this it is not a right or wrong issue, good or bad, but simply what our inner self feels comfortable with.
