Oh, *whew* that's a relief! Especially if you did it with a cow - geeze what a mess that would be!
To the rest of the contributors to this thread I have to say as a carnivore, hunter, and rancher that supports this whole meat-eating culture please
go back and at least read my last post on the previous page. There's a lot going on with the person that looks back at you in the mirror that you
can't escape as time goes on and age sets in. Regardless of how many pictures of stupid
people behaving badly with animals you post
one has to come to grips with the fact that you are projecting a lot of preconceived notions onto that glass we see the world through. I firmly
believe that the animals I've dispatched over the years, on their own levels, are, indeed sentient to some degree. They have the same five senses we
do and are able to do a surprising range of ascertaining how to work through simple problems but I've never seen one sit back and try to organize a
takeover of the ranch a la "Animal Farm" or seen a game animal start hunting the hunter unless it's a predator itself. Revenge is not a normal
thing for game animals unless cornered or to protect their young.
With very few exceptions not one animal that exists on Earth expects anything other than to eat, be eaten or breed. Crows, great apes and others form
very interesting interactive groups but when you have a life span that doesn't go beyond a decade in general everything is done for the moment.
Everything you encounter is put to a few very simple tests - "Can I eat it? Can it eat me? Can I screw it (if it's a male)?" or, in the case of a
lot of the nanny goats on our place "where can I go today to NOT get screwed??"
I can tell you a few stories about the goats we raise but for brevity's sake let's just say that everyone that I've encountered that has a problem
with meat has quite a few other emotional problems going on in various amounts and levels. I know, it sounds gauche as can be to say that but, in my
half century plus of stomping around on this planet every anti-hunter, anti-carnivore, P.E.T.A. supporting activist in some way or another can not
deal with the way the world is and wants to change it to their way of thinking. The dangerous ones actually think they can. For the most part this
is a direct result of the insulated life we lead in the concrete cocoons we have built for ourselves to hide and multiply beyond all reason in. It's
no different from the imaginary world the machine in "The Matrix" created to grow people for power. I'd say get up and get the hell out of your
cities but there's so many of you it's totally impossible. Humanity has outgrown it's pasture and things will probably get ugly in the near
future, I'm afraid.
