Anyone seen John locke?.
It would be hypocrisy if hunting wild animals is done this way or killing cows and chickens for food even though the way its done is quite inhumane in my opinion but beating/kicking an animal, breaking its bones and internal organs is not comparable and something to call hypocrisy.
I really don't think you are following or understand the difference in beating something for pleasure and killing something for pleasure like a hunter might be.
It has nothing to do with emotional attachment but how the animal is killed or in this case tortured and beaten to death.
In those sports, hunting, how are the animals killed?
are the captured and beaten and kicked to death?

The difference between killing for food a killing for sadism, is killing for food goes for the quickest most efficient kill and is done out of a need.
A kill for sadism tends to prolong the suffering of the creature killed and is done for the express purpose of inflicting pain upon another living thing.
Most parents would rather if their child is killed, have it be a quick and painless death or an accident. A death by say a car accident is preferable over say someone's daughter being tied up raped for days, then murdered.
In both cases the daughter is dead, but it's not just a life is a life. There's context. You can't just remove all context and pretend two thing are the same.
How it's done is irrelevant.
Have you ever seen the videos of how animals are treated on ranches and packing plants? If not, watch a video and come back to me.
Sorry but it certainly is.
Its why I said yes I am a hypocrite because I still eat both.
However, the method and injuries sustained by the dog is on another level.
If you cant get that
I am more trying to discuss personal property
and you won't touch it
How are hunting animals and killing a family pet linked?
That is not justification
Really? So it's ok to kill for pleasure as long as one uses the right "process"?
I do get it.
You're trying to rationalize and justify the treatment and death of one animal, and then decry and outrage about another.
