    - I work as a cook out on the sea and luckily have bad reception. In that way I'm living a bit isolated, says Pia Olden (18) from Bjugn in Trųndelag.

    Olden explains that she's been forced to turn off her mobile phone since monday because she didn't have the time for all the hate-messages. The messages came after she posted a picture of her past horse, Drifting Speed, as a meal on Facebook last week, and Norwegian media wrote about her.

    Attachment 115002

    - People tell me to go hang myself, and that I should lose the right to have animals and children, says the 18 year old who've never before been a "celebrity".

    Olden is unsure about how this happened, but suddenly the case escalated to international media like Daily Mail and New York Post.

    - It turned out the be an unintended PR-stunt, she says.

    No regrets
    Despite the death-threats from all over the World, she doesn't regret eating her horse, who had to be put down because of an incurable injury.

    - In today's society, there is a lot of talk about living sustainably and making use of the resources, Olden says.

    She explains that she tries to do just that - and even still it is something wrong in some people's eyes.

    - But I have no regrets, says Olden.

    - Why do you believe people react like this?

    - It is a controversial thing to do. I think it's very taboo to eat one's own horse. But on Iceland, for example, it is completely normal to eat one's horses, except that one exchange one's own horse with somebody else's, says Olden.




    Translated from Norwegian article: https://www.vg.no/nyheter/innenriks/..._content=row-2
    Death threats for that are over the top crazy but that's still messed up - if I lived in a small town and I knew someone did this, I would give them a very wide birth basically forever. You don't eat things you have had a relationship with unless you're starving, it's like it was just fodder to her and not her partner in competitions. To me, this is a serious behavioral read flag, like what the hell else is this person capable of if they're willing to trangress that boundary?

    I suppose it depends on nature of the relationship. If one is settled on the idea that the animal is going to be food once it dies, already in the establishing phase of the relationship, I don't think there's anything objectionable about eaten it/her/him oneself. But then again, the relationship would be colored by this fact from beginning to end, anyway, and not really comparable to the relationship the average person has to his or her dog or cat, for instance.

    I've eaten pigs who've been raised on a farm I worked at. Some times feeding them and cuddling them, and even sleeping together with them once. I was always aware of their destiny, though, that they would ultimately be turned into sausages in the not-so-distant future. The fact that they were treated with kindness and sympathy during their lifetime, didn't make eating them feel any more 'messed up' than it would have felt if they were merely treated as a piece of meat during life as well as in death. In fact, it felt much more comfortable, knowing that they had led a great life. In contrast to the mass-produced meat from animals kept under horrendous conditions in factory farms.

    My dad was raised on his family farm that was located in Southern Ohio. He told me he and his three brothers had to contend with their emotional attachment to the livestock they raised for eventual slaughter.

    However, he informed me that horses and mules were properly respected solely as beasts of burden, and never used for food by normal folk that he knew of.

    Feelings are a necessary part of life. But we have to learn to temper them with logic.

    As for the context of this topic, the girl who ate her horse attained the wrong kind of noteriety as far as I'm concerned. I think she is a mentally deranged attention seeker(Another version of Greta Thunberg, and the feminist dweebs who recomend physically emasculating men.) who needs to be institutionalized before she can move on to devouring human flesh for even more publicity.

    Are you for real? She posted a picture of it on her Facebook... Hardly like she was shoving it in anybody's face.

    Eating horses, dogs, cats, and monkeys is just plain disgusting.
    Not all in life is at it appears to be.

    Normally, I stay away from eating anything too "taboo", I guess mostly due to habit and culture, not sure what I would do in a survival situation though. I've read of a case of cannibalism that resulted from a plain crash in the Andes. During such times people might resort to extreme measures.

    Regarding the Norwegian teenager who ate her horse, far as I've read, the horse had to be put down due to illness, so it was not a clear cut case of her intending to use the horse for food from the very beginning. Not that this would make it necessarily taboo, a lot of children who grow up on farms bond with farm animals which are grown specifically for that purpose. I remember that I myself bonded with a hen and didn't want to eat any fried chicken or chicken soup afterwards. On the other hand, if it had died by natural causes, maybe I'd have felt different. Perhaps another way of seeing it is that she wanted to honor her animal friend by making use of its meat and not letting it go to waste/rot in the ground. Maybe she feels like the horse is now "part of her". Strangely enough, this is how some cannibals motivated their actions from an emotional/spiritual angle. It was not uncommon for people to want to preserve or carry a part of their dead loved ones with them. Bracelets and jewelry made out of hair used to be common, nowadays a more extravagant version would be turning the ashes into a diamond. Some people would taxidermy their best animal friends or turn their fur or hide into clothing.

    People are increasingly losing any sense of proportionality when it comes to animals. While it's certainly a little weird to eat one's "pet" (as far as a horse is a pet) and posting it on facebook (which I find more weird than to eat it), how does this justify wishing death upon some girl? It's the same when it comes to whaling in the Faeroe islands. People get all worked up and then come up with "solutions" like "why don't they just buy their (factory farm) meat in the supermarket like everyone else? Monsters!".
    It's not even like she killed it for that purpose but let it be puth to death because it was ill.

    If most of these people were full-blown vegans, it wouldn't be so hypocritical at least. But mostly they themselves, as Thor fittingly said buy "mass-produced meat from animals kept under horrendous conditions in factory farms". What this girl did was at least sustainable.

    People are also simply becoming totally disassociated from where their meat comes from. For my grandparents generation it was still totally normal to slaughter livestock themselves, your November's pet bunny became your Christmas roast. It's fairly irrelevant that it's a horse, there is no logical reason that it should be any different from eating any other animal, apart from it being an inherited taboo in some countries (in Germany, for example, this used to be totally normal up to the 20th century and still is no taboo, though uncommon).

    Could you please translate what she said here, Thor?

    First you write: "Feelings are a necessary part of life. But we have to learn to temper them with logic." but then: "before she can move on to devouring human flesh for even more publicity."

    Horse meat tastes okay, actually.

    I wouldn't buy any but I once ate some (by mistake) when in France.

    "Friday's dinner, the proper way, at Olden tonight. We received important visitors, so then the best meat we had to offer was served. Outer and inner filets of my own Drifting Speed, which we unfortunately had to slaughter in 2018, could finally be dug out from the freezer. And what a tender and tasty meat!

    A little bit weird to eat one's own horse, but my cook's heart said that I had to do it. "If I'm going to eat horse meat, it has to be my own" I said jokingly, and when Drifting was put down, we placed a return order on her meat. I was with her till "the final end" on the slaughterhouse, knowing that she lived a good life, free from medicines/drugs and junk. The meat was not eaten with a bad conscience, to put it that way.

    Misunderstand me correctly - I loved that horse, even though I made a meal with her meat."
