My husband went to a game ranch and shot a wild boar. We had it butchered and made into breakfast sausages, brats, chops, ribs and ham.
Last night we had brats or, BOARats as I like to call them... They were probably the best brats I've ever had because there as little to no fat. It's sort of the lean winter season and the pig wasn't very fat. Thus no bacon.
Anyway, I was saying how great it was, and I was informed that no one thought I would be okay with hunting Babe and proceeding to eat said animal due to the fact that I have said I am opposed to trophy hunting and the needless slaughter of innocent animals for fun.
I was informed that killing an animal to eat it is the same as killing an animal to take its rack, or just killing one for the pleasure of killing a fellow creature of the earth.
My father in law used to sit in his yard with a spear and kill moles, just because. Then pitch the corpse into the woods to be scavenged. I have always disagreed with this, and asked him not to do it in front of my son. (this is somehow considered irrational.)
Anyway, discuss. What is your opinions on hunting, Pokedream?
