    Why don't we eat animals when they are alive?

    Most people eat animals when they are dead. Why don't we eat their flesh when they are alive? What do you think are the pros and cons of eating dead animals as opposed to living ones?

    because a live animal might object to being eaten.

    Well have you ever tried to eat a living animal? They tend to move and feel pain and fight back. Also, when we eat dead animals we aren't exactly munching on their fur and hooves and other body parts. It's probably not a good idea to eat a live animal because blood and other bodily fluids might not be entirely healthy for us. At least if they're dead they're cleaned up and we get straight meat. That's how I like my animals.

    if they were alive we'd be drenched in blood everytime... and would be difficult to have a candle light dinner too ... plus there would be a lot noise from the animal ... i heard poeple in bankok drink or used to drink monkey brain fluids while the monkey was alive and screaming.
