The other day, one of my kid's 5 dwarf hamsters had 7 babies. To keep things manageable going forward, I put 5 of the babies down the garbage disposal. My sister-in-law said that was cruel.

So, even things I take for granted and use like fly spray, bug and bettle killer, snail killer etc etc goes against those philosophies. To an extent, western civilization has departed from the more earthly aspects of residing on a planet with countless other life forms.
I think it's each to their own according to their conscience
I don't agree with that at all. We don't need meat, it's a luxury, not a necessity. If I had to kill a cow for my beef, I would become a vegetarian/fruitarian. I have no desire to kill animals. I also go out of my way to catch and release spiders. The only things I've ever killed have been insects that invade the house in swarms, to where I have no choice at that point.
