well, at least the turtle did it right. to me, it seemed like it snapped the mouse's spine, a quick way to go. and i very much understand the people
who feed their predators with other animals. you got to recreate the environment for your pet. i even understand those who upload it. it is an
interesting watch. not by pleasure of course, but by observation. feeding piranhas with live prey is a little harsh for me though. they've known to
bleed out their victims.
I get those who feel emotional watching the mice go, but it happens a hundred thousand times everywhere every day. unlucky for them, they are on the
lower steps in the food chain. unlucky for you, you can't save all the mice.
i honestly do not think that people should be bashed for feeding animals with other animals.
Do you think it is cruel to even tape it? there are photographers in the wild. a lot of them, and they always tape, and observe, but do not interfere.
it's their law. should they be bashed too? i didn't think either.
there are much worse and sickening cases of animal cruelty all over, and i think this is not one of them. dogfights? yes. cockfights? yes. dogs
fighting with cocks? absolutely! they are against nature. but this isn't.
and do not let emotions guide you. you think mice are cute? just like me. but they are almost in any case: food to other animals.
I feed my turtle inanimate things. turtle food, and I have never even considered giving her living beings to eat. but if I had a snake(like the ones
who eat mice) I would feed them with mice. Would I tape it? a few of them, yes. Would it turn me on? no. Would I upload it to youtube? If I felt I
could make a contribution to the community. Would I feel regret for it? yes, and that's why I do not have pets like these.
mark my words gentlemen.
