    I could NOT slaughter my own meat. I have been a vegetarian ever since I graduated from high school. I love animals too much to ever consent to harming one. However, everyone has a right to their own perspective......I am just voicing my own opionion.

    I believe some animals are put on this earth just for that purpose. I call them feeder animals.
    The coward believes he will live forever
    If he holds back in the battle,
    But in old age he shall have no peace
    Though spears have spared his limbs

    I use to live on out in the country when I was younger, so I have killed and butchered a lot chickens and rabbits.

    I also use to work at a viking reenactment center where I have slaughtered
    and eaten some Icelandic sheep. Also did some hunting once, but breaking my teeth on lead I dislike.... it must be done by hand.

    Its very nice to know how your meat lived and died, very natural and a good feeling. For me personally it enhances the dining experience and I can enjoy It with a clear conscious, knowing that the animal was not mistreated...

    What is messy and disgusting is the meat industry !

    I've witnessed chickens killed on a local free range (very free range) farm, and although I've never slaughtered my own meat before I think if I knew how to do so quick and successful, I could.

    I'd rather know where my meat came from, how it lived and how it died, than take it from a box I'd bought from Tesco and kept in the freezer for a week.

    The closer I can live to nature the happier I am.

    Ive killed things before. I have not had to kill something i raised, but i don't think it would bother me. I watch most of the deer and rabbits and stuff around here, so in a way i'm attached, but i have no problem killing them for food.Normally when i kill something i tell it sorry and finish it quick, no big deal everything has to die sometime.

    NO WAY
    That would be like killing a family member
    I have a dream for when I retire to move out to the country and live on a farm with loads of animals and just live harmoniously with them and not kill any of them, they're all gonna be so happy CANNOT WAIT!

    some time ago I realised that my body has best performance on dairy products fishes, and veg food. most types of meat stinks to me( especially when it's raw or while being cooked) besides my skin doesn't produce any odour on such diet.

    I caught, killed, cleaned fishes since ever, sometimes I felt little remorse for them, but as long as I kill only what I need, I feel ok.

    Double standards

    What I've found was that most people who have a problem with meat, don't mind killing human babies with abortions.

    I lived most of my life in a Rocky Mountain state famous for it's hunting and fishing.

    Not only have a butchered or processed any wild game I harvested, I also butchered domestic animals for my family's use, from time to time.

    My first child only had wild game for meat until she was about 2 and didn't like beef when she first tasted it, preferring deer and elk.
