Would you be able to kill an animal for food?
If there were a WW3 and food stores would be empty, would you be able to kill an animal or would you become a vegy?
While I don't mind eating chicken, beef, lamb, etc., I would not be able to actually kill an animal. Good question!
I will not kill the animle my self just because i dont know how to do it. but dont mind watching these animals beeing killed. but once I am hungry I would kill anything I guess this maybe the reason why there is WW3 could be for food...So at the end my answer Yes I will! by the way nice picture made me hungry
Depends upon my situation. If I were actually starving and that is the only way to eat. I could overcome my fear of killing an animal if it were next to starvation. I can remember when my father in law would bring in fresh roadkill he had found. Other wise, no I could not do it.
Of course. I have no issue with putting animals down as food. Ironically enough, we just put down 28 chickens today for our own meat supply.
At first this struck me as a silly question, but then the answers made me remember that I live in a very isolated bit of the world, and the lifestyle I was raised with has largely died out. Simple answer -- yes, I could kill an animal for food, as I've been doing it most of my life. My sister and I were brought along on hunts from four years old on, in order to instill in us the importance of gun safety -- we got to see very clearly what they do. By...I think I was seven, I started helping with slaughtering our own animals when it was time to put them in the freezer. At nine I hunted small game (rabbits and squirrels), and by twelve I was hunting deer and antelope (pronghorn). If there is ever a food shortage, or even an event which requires we leave civilization altogether and head for the mountains, we're well-prepared in this and many other skills.
i've put down chickens / sheep and goats before ... and can do it again ... never enjoyed it but has to be done.
No, I would not be able to kill an animal for food under normal circumstances. If I were starving or my family was starving, I would do what I would have to do. In some countries where they eat their cats and dogs, I think that is cruel.
Only if I had too. And then I would have to know tge best way to do it, so the animal didn't suffer.
If it was my own chicken then 'NO' cause they would all have names.
Well, as a vegetarian my answer might suprise people... Yep! I'm a life-long vegetarian, but if I absolutely had to kill an animal in order for myself to survive, I would be able to do so without much of a problem. Even more so if it wasn't just for my own survival, be it spouse or offspring as well.
Under the circumstances proposed by you then I would, not to fond of it but will do whatever was necessary...
Yes, I would be able to kill an animal for food. As a matter of fact, I already have. I shop and killed a deer 12 years ago. My ex-husband was a fanatical hunter, and I spent a large amount of time with him, processing and wrapping meat. I remember one year, we had 9 deer hanging in the barn...took 3 full days to clean that mess up!!
Absolutely. If I was stranded in the woods, I would want to survive. I don't believe in hunting for the sport. When my family and I fish, we catch and release. I am not a vegetarian and I do believe that cruelty to animals is wrong. I would save every stray animal I could, if I had the means. But I would kill an animal for food. We have been doing it for centuries and still do it today.
The word "kill" is not in my vocabulary. I won't even kill bugs if they are not inside my house. But I guess you do what you have to do in order to survive. If I could just catch a fish, drink milk, eat an egg or even grass, I would do that first. I love four legged animals that look at you with intelligent eyes and even trust, but if I had to choose between human life and animal life, I would choose in favor of human life, even though I wouldn't like it one bit. I do hope it never comes to that!

I believe yes, because killing is itself a violent act and if it is involved in the process of making food, it will definitely makes them more violent.

I never figured out, despite my experience of living a lifespan of 45 years, why humans kill and torture animals for food. Why do Muslims and Christians still practice killing animals for meat? Is that allowed in their so-called religions of mercy? They should better learn from the Buddhists and...

Killing a living creature be it a bird or animal is violence then why is cutting vegetation for food not a violent act since even plants have life?
