If they are immoral enough to attack and try to kill you for no reason - even some reporting torturing people... why not torture the pig? They have intellect.

This is right in my opinion and I think it was right that this was done a few months ago at my ranch.

I accept this debate. My position is torturing wild pigs is NOT OKAY in a unfortunate predicament that they attack you.

I would like to ask my opponent to lay down his definition of "wild pigs" in round 2.

Wild pigs as in boars.

Boar
- an uncastrated domestic male pig.

Since Pro did not post any arguments in round 2, I will post mine.


Here are my arguments.

1. Torturing boars is not justifiable for attacking you. Attacking you is not a good reason for torture. Killing the pig is more humane than torturing.

2. Torturing boars increases the chances that we will harm humans. Since animals in general have no moral value in themselves, the torturer can’t explain why it is wrong to harm them in themselves and so the best he can do is to point to a potential harm to those with moral value.

3. Torturing is immoral. Human or not, it is still a living being.

4. You gain nothing from torturing a boar, unless you are a sexual sadist and sexual sadists are immoral people.

Now to pro.

Sexual sadism concerning an unwilling victim, like any sexual activity with an unwilling victim, is immoral. Sexual sadism in the more appropriate context of consenting adults is an alternative expression of sexuality, and not simply immoral on principle.
