So, I was just thinking away today. In Illinois, shot gun hunting season started, ugh,,dfskjldhflskjdhfjksdjkfhjksdasdafsd. Anywhoozels, would you guys eat and kill an animal if you had to do it for survival? Like if you were in the desert, and a rabbit came by, you had the chance to kill it and eat it for SURVIVAL. What would you do? Just curious. I really don’t know what I’d do. I’m conflicted. Anyways, tell me what you’d do! Xx
exactly what @vegancaramel said.
If there is a live rabbit, then there is foliage for the rabbit to eat.
The only place you might really be stuck is in like… Antarctica… but if you’re stuck in Antarctica, you’re pretty much screwed anyway.
I feel like this is completely different from what we are doing today. Today, we are keeping animals locked up in cages, tunnels, having them ripped apart while still alive. None of this is necessary. Yet, let’s take a history lesson for a moment: the indians (before colonials decided they didn’t belong here. Idiots) The Indians hunted and killed. That was their only means of food, warmth, decor. But you know what else? They didn’t hunt and kill all of the time. They didn’t remove the animal from its natural habitat to “get the best meat possible”
So, to answer your question. If I was stranded somewhere and a land/sea creature went by and it was my only available food, I personally would probably catch it. I believe it’s different from the exploitation that is happening currently.
There was once a time when people HAD to eat meat to survive. I don’t know if that was the right choice or not, but the human instinct is to survive, and back then, the only way you could get enough calories was to eat meat or die.I don’t think humans were meant to eat meat, but when food became scarce (especially in the Ice Age, when plants were dead), I think they didn’t have much of a choice. I don’t know what I would do in this situation, but I think those times are far behind us and until the time comes when the only choice is to die or eat an animal, we should just do what we can to help animals right now, like SassyVegan said.
