Subject: RE: Guns and hunting
Thanks for some real figures Jeri. I'm suspicious when people quote figures without giving a source.

Those 1.4 per 100,000 who died of malnutrition could maybe have used a few bambi-burgers, and probably wouldn't have cared too much whether they were farm raised or hunted.

kat, you're right about geese though. I gave up keeping geese because I didn't like killing them, they are so smart and they seemed to know what was coming.
One cannot live in modern society without exploiting animals, (if you don't wear leather then you are probably buying groceries from someone who does); I respect you for trying to live up to your beliefs though.

I was raised that, as a meat eater, I should be able to take responsiblity for killing the animals that I ate and was taught to butcher chickens at an early age. There was a war on and Dad used to raise chickens and rabbits to supplement the rations.
