I am a vegan, but if I wasn't it wouldn't make the argument contradictory. It would be irrational (and somewhat hypocritical) though to accept the argument but continue to act otherwise. But that doesn't affect the validity nor the soundness of the argument.

I don't hunt.




Domesticated animals e.g. broiler chickens are much different than wild animals. They've been engineered in a way that they couldn't survive prolonged exposure outside. Nonetheless, I do think cattle and even broiler chickens to a limited extent want to experience the warmth of the sun (something you take for granted everyday), dustbathe, etc. These are their most basic interests. Imagine, for example, that you are in a crowded elevator with no room to move. After some time, memebers of the group begin to get agitated and start acting aggressively while others, out of sheer hopelessness, resort to activities like canibalism. That is the life of a battery caged chicken. And you're right. These animals have a desire to live + more. We owe them that much. This isn't hippy bull s***. It's the rational and intelligent thing to do. And yes, I am a vegan.



That sounds all fine and dandy, but you're missing the point at issue.

Since you are vegan, I respect your argument, although I disagree. There is nothing more annoying than hearing someone a similar argument to yours, yet not be vegan. It is hypocritical, and usually a popular stance born of convenience. Being a vegan is far from convenient.

I think where we disagree is that I believe that it is not disrespectful to animals to hunt them for food, and you do. My reasons would be that we are omnivores, and it's difficult to eat meat without killing something. Our species is just one of many that has hunted the same animals for centuries. I don't see any reason to ban it outright, as we have already reduced the number of wild hunting immensely. I would also point out that the Natives that were here before us had a respect that bordered on equalism for animals, yet they still killed for food.

As I said, I respect the fact that you live your opinion on the matter, but respectfully disagree.

All this talk of mountain goat has made me hungry so I thought I would provide a couple of links to some tantalizing mountain goat recipes.

Thanks, I wish I had some goat.

I would try the braised goat. Look at some east Indian books they do a great job with goat.
