    Maybe I'm getting weak in my old age, but seeing a truckload of sheep heading up Ngaraunga Gorge off to the works just about makes me a vegetarian. Just seems so sad, looking at these animals and knowing that they are an hour away from being BBQ.

    I don't think you are getting weak. I think the same way. There are a number of meat substitutes around these days, and we have been trying them, so we are mostly vegetarians now.

    I guess I feel that an animal doesn't have to be killed to feed me meat any more. The next challenge is dairy products!

    No sorry. I hate the freezing works, I feel sorry for the way they are killed.

    I have trouble killing them myself.
    But eat fake meat? Or none at all? hell no.

    Even if every human on the planet stopped eating animals, you think that would end their deaths?
    The big cats, jackals, hyenas, orcas, etc etc would still be chomping away.

    And for those who think it's just the fierce teeth animals just been reading about some mice that started to eat albatross chicks....yep, it took a bunch of them to kill one chick, but they sure kept at it and the practice spread to the mice kids copying.

    The plant based diet I am on is science based, and I find I have no scruples about killing animals when necessary.

    Neighbour who was a very conspicuous consumer of animal products called me up to "put down" two of their chickens that had some sort of incurable disease. I wrung their necks, which was as painless as I could think of. I must have killed of hundreds of different sorts of vermin as well.

    On the other hand we have had three cats put down by the vet over the years.

    We are more herbivorous than carnivorous

    We are not.
    We are omnivores, not herbivores.

    In the natural world, the deaths are often really nasty.
    Sometimes eaten alive, yep they arnt allways dead when being eaten , that includes humans being eaten by bears, lions etc .
    or if not eaten alive, a lingering unpleasant death. No being euthanized out in the wild.
    Farmed animals are the lucky ones. A nice easy lifestyle, looked after & fed, a quick death at the end of it.

    Caged animals, thats another story. Seems like cruelty to animals is perfectly acceptable if we want to eat them .

    " A nice easy lifestyle, looked after & fed, a quick death at the end of it."

    So we destroy natural habitat, to farm animals and produce between 50 and 60 BILLION animals for slaughter each year, world wide, not including chickens fish etc,. Sounds like a lot of bad luck to me.
