-shrugs- A lot of cunning predatory animals make sure you're still alive when they start to eat you. Just sayin'.

Because I eat them doesn't make me any less than someone who doesn't. I've had my share of pets over the ages (cows, goats, sheep, cats, fish, chickens and ducks) but it doesn't stop me from eating them, even though I still loved them.
I never said you have to be a vegetarian to love animals.

Glad this became civil again.. O.o

I think the real problem with eating carnivores is you're eating too high on the food chain. That carnivore has to eat so many herbivores to grow that it would be silly and wasteful to raise them for food. Obviously they are not being raised for for food on purpose many times, just being pulled off the street, but when they are it's quite sad. I'm not a vegetarian but I do believe meat should be eaten sparingly, for the environment if not anything else, and stick to smaller animals as well as even grass fed beef will be quite unsustainable in the future.
