I understand what you mean. But nobody is complaining about the ecosystem. They are talking about an animals right to live freely, and how cruel it is, etc. I agree that free wild animals should be left alone (rhinos, etc). But people need to stop crying about the poor baby seals, when the natives use about 99% of the animal. Meanwhile we throw out close to 50% of the food we buy/eat.
I avoid eating meat or meat products (soy milk, margerine, veggie sub, etc) But I am not against eating meat. The only problem I have is the WAY these animals are slaughtered (skinning them alive, cutting off limbs alive, etc). Clubbing might actually be more humane than most people think. I think there should be protocols, the same way we have in North America.
