If God didn't want us to eat animals he wouldn't have made them out of food.




He made you out of food too..

Aye Ive had my fair share of rabbit stews camping and pheasant too !
wild game is pretty decent food and rightly so because it was our life for thousands of years.

Yep, everything I eat has become a building block in my body.

And someday, I may become food for some enterprising critter.

I suspect that the majority of people who choose a plant-based diet are not the type to take part in these sorts of protests,...... Personally, I could care less what you shove in your maw.

I have looked into it and I think I will live longer If I go plant based plus I love rice water with coconut milk in.
I know a couple of lovely lesbian vegans who I adore and have had many a good vibrant chat with them about it, I will still kill the odd rabbit to protect their veg
.
I do understand people saying it is how the meat is raised and kept but as in the butcher in the OP it is about as wild as can be and these protesters are protesting against the wrong people.

I'm vegan, and have been since I was a teenager (I'm nearly 50). I don't force my personal belief system on others and know a lot of other vegan/vegetarians that don't either.

Thank you for that. I think a lot of the sarcastic response is not due to the protesters being vegan, but is due to them being nosy, overbearing, ridiculous folk.

Agreed. I got nothing against vegans, or vegos, and I am glad that there are people out there that highlight specific cruelty to animals. What I don't get is that the militant crowd don't realise paradoxically they are also being cruel and abusing human rights themselves. I mean more like in a way that calling for meat bans altogether infringes on culture and heritage, the right for people to choose, the right for people to eat what they can from a biological/survival point of view.

And then there's the ethics regarding the animals, especially in situations like game. Sometimes a population can just explode, having a flow on effect to other species, some already vulnerable because there's an increased competition for food and resources and increased predators. Then you got a population reaching it's exponential and then man, that gets cruel - starvation and all.

I'm up for culling programs with trained professional hunters, and the meat being reused for human food or other pet/animal food.

Kangaroo is a great example. And I tell you what, it is magical meat. So juicy and tender if you cook it right, cheaper than regular meat, low in fat, high protein and very sustainable and has low impact on the environment (compared to intense meat production). Pro tip for anyone still unsure about eating kangaroo : If you swap your regular mince/ground meat in recipes for Roo mince, you will notice how improved that recipe tastes! My favourite is making Roo mince Enchiladas. You feel better eating them (nicer on the tums), and the taste is mouthwatering.

Oh no, not a broccoli hater!

Me, I'm personally offended anytime a Brussels Sprout is put in front of me. They make me want to gag. Broccoli though, is pretty good. Anything Soy based sucks also. Tastes like meat my ###

Seems like half the things people protest about makes no sense. I think it's just people who get off on protest that show up at any protest, no matter what it is. Stick it too the man!!! I know here we see the same people at pretty much all protests. Of course here they are small protests and we flick boogers at them. Does that make me a bad person? Just kidding.

They can't possibly have anything else to do, so in reality I envy them all that free time to waste pissing in the wind.

Vegans and meat eaters can coexist, it's me, me, me, look at me people who can't get along.

I think that eating meat will be outlawed some day.


I'll re-word that a little.




I think that eating will be outlawed some day.


If they outlawed meat and all we had was limited veggies...a good portion of the planet would starve.
Eating would bring protesters.



They outlaw meat and I start eating vegans. Most, not all, of my non-fish meat consumed comes from herbivores anyway, so it probably wouldn't even be that major of a change in dietary habits for me and mine.

I hated Brussels sprouts too, until I tried my sister in laws..not boiled but baked, or maybe lightly broiled with bacon, actually pretty edible

Broccoli is ok if lightly stir fried, I'm not big on a lot of veggies but for the most part I can eat and sometimes enjoy in a stir fry..biggest thing is not to boil everything to death..it ruins a lot of stuff, except corn on the cob..mmm

The older I get the more foods I like now I once hated. Liver is another thing I hate. Otherwise I'm open to try anything pretty much and easy to please. I do eat less meat now and more veggies, but that's from age. I tend to crave veggies now, but with a nice slab of meat sitting next to them.

I'm pretty much the same..never liked liver, never will, me and my little brother used to find creative ways of pretending to eat it..in those days you sat at the table and ate what was put in front of you.
Like you I'm more open to things I never had a taste for when younger.
I would like to get into the mindset of more veggies, salad is always good with me.

Moose is THE best!
I like most birds too, not duck though.

My boss of many years was die hard vegan because of being a veterinarian.
Something about removing tumors all day and not wanting to eat them!

It didn't convince me, but I prefer to see what I'm eating. Getting a half cow or hunting and fishing.

I was a bit scared off by the "muscle wasting disease" warnings this year however...

That's what these enviro-kooks don't seem to get. Nature is a balance.

Here we have way too many deer, almost to the point that they'll start starving off soon. I rarely hunt, so it's a chore trying to find someone who can handle a gun safely and is willing to hunt the place. Same with rabbits... gardens are getting hard to grow.

At one point, nature had a balance: a few mountain lions, some bobcats, and the deer herd was maintained. But those mountain lions will attack humans, so we killed most of them off to protect ourselves (and people were scared of the little bobcats, so they killed most of them off too). Now there's only one predator left: us.

If we harvest 5 or 6 deer a year, the population seems stable and they leave the gardens mostly alone. That's enough meat to feed a few families, veggies for a few families, and it prevents the deer from dying a slow, painful death. These fools will go out and (rightly) protest the conditions in many slaughterhouses, but then assist in policy to torture animals over a misplaced ideology. At the same time, they support increasing the amount of plant food needed/consumed by humans, which lowers the food supply for the animals they claim to care about but actually are trying to starve to death. And they try to tick off the people they want to support them in the process!

There is not a clearer example of complete ignorance and absolute idiocy on the planet.
