And yet according to all of them all those animals have just as much right to live and breed etc as we do.
That's just a stupid post.
I don't make any enviromental arguments in favour, of being a vegitarian but that's a ludicrous comment. It's like saying people who want the enviroment improved would gladly do away with all modes of transportation and in fact kill people as, if there were less people the enviroment would be better for similar reasons (and in fact more numerous ones) as with killing animals.
Many of these animal lovers also have the wrong idea on treating animals. They keep pets confined in small places, isolated from their own species. That is for the owners pure entertainment, and not for the love of animals. You should not make an animal live that life just for your enjoyment, that is far worse than actually killing an animal for food (at least it is put out of torture and a life of confinement and isolation).
Which pets are you talking about? I have 2 dogs and, they weren't born in the wild and certainly wouldn't like to be there. Surely this isn't what you're talking about? Regular walks, every opportunity on them to run away and never return, regular food which they don't have to fight for, a warm place to sleep. My dogs would sure as hell hate to be in the wild, more to the point, they've never been there and as such there's no reason to assume they'd like it.
