    I have company coming over so I will be out of this conversation for a while.

    Please be nice so a Mod doesn't close it before I get back. :)

    So, you do eat beef? Poultry? Fish? But, those animals "were here long before mankind and man has no right to kill these beautiful creatures."

    Let me get this straight...Hunting animals is bad and immoral. Hunting humans is ok and fine as long as the killed humans are killers and rapists. Gotchya! :rolleyes:

    So, morality policing is ok with animals, but not humans private choices?

    Ah....finally an understanding!!! I for one would have no problem hunting a human that raped and killed my sister or mother. Maybe you have a problem with that line of thinking but I don't like housing killers, rapists or pedophiles on my dime.

    When I see the way the humans treat some animals it makes me sick.

    I never said how I feel about our criminal justice system. I was merely pointing out your difference in morality.

    Only some animals, as you point out, since you have no issue with cow or chicken slaughter, right? Just don't kill a whale!

    Ok back to topic....Whale Wars is a great show, I love the Sea Sheppards.

    I also love the dog rescue shows. Thanks to shows like these we are raising the level of awareness to the cruelity to animals in general.

    Now leave me alone until I finish my steak...........just kidding!!!

    :lol::lol: mmmm steak!

    Just so you know, I'm not for cruelty to animals. I hate seeing pets mistreated, disagree with hunting, and wish those rapists and killers were executed. ;) And I still dislike those nuts on WW. :lol:

    Dangerous, maybe, but then again your buddies the whalers are the only ones who have intentionally tried to kill anyone when they ran over a boat that was stopped.

    Wrongfully? No... Someone has to stand up for endangered species. What the whalers are doing is what's wrong.

    Deer, bear, quail, turkey, etc aren't endangered. Apples to oranges...

    As for cows, well they are farmed for our consumption and also not endangered. I do however not like how we get veal though.

    Dogs aren't endangered, so are those ok to kill and eat?

    If you are going to eat the dog to survive then yes. Otherwise no.

    You have to put things into perspective. When an Eskimo kills a whale, almost 100% of that whale is used. When the Japanese kill a whale, only the meat they can sell is used, everything else is tossed overboard.

    When cows, chickens and pigs are killed, they are killed very quickly and there is no suffering. Plus as someone else said, those animals are farmed for us. I still don't like it but it is what it is.

    In the wild, animals kill other animals to survive. The key word is "survival" If you have to kill an animal to survive then it's mostly OK. When you kill an endangered species for money, I feel that is crossing the line.

    Then animal planet is a great channel. I don't like watching the killings but as I said, because of shows like Whale Wars and others, we are seeing how cruel the world can be, and maybe it can bring positive change.

    They're domesticated, which is another difference.

    Wild dogs? Sure.

    That's why I stopped eating veal 27 years ago. Beef followed 2 years later and pork a year after that.

    I get that, respect that, and agree with most it. But who are they (The Sea Shepherd) to police what's being done? Putting lives in danger is just nutty, IMO, over whales.

    Also, you're claiming what the Japanese are doing is illegal. They claim that they are simply whaling for scientific research. Who knows? We don't.

    Plus, those nut jobs boarded a Japanese ship. Piracy is real & these buffoons aren't helping ease matters. Then, they had the nerve to claim they were being held hostage. Really? :rolleyes:

    This guy says exactly how I see this show:

    I've eaten veal once in my life, never again.

    beef and pork I have no problem with because they are grown for us. We wouldn't have the number of cows or pigs we have if they weren't grown just to be consumed.
