Does Britain have a hypocritical attitude towards animals?

Posted by: AlexEdoh2013

International outcry is growing after the recent killing of Cecil the lion and and there is also outcry on the Chinese dog meat festival, yet in 2012, Britain has consumed 85.8 kilogrammes of per person per year. At the same time, 873.8 million broiler chickens were slaughtered for meat in the UK, producing 1.32 million tonnes of chicken meat. "How can we love some, but eat other animals" animal rights activists cry. So, do we have a hypocritical attitude towards animals?

No, Britain is not hypocritical for eating meat.

There is nothing wrong with the process of eating meat and, at one point, is thought that our neanderthal-like ancestors choosing to eat meat is the soul reason that our brains began to develop to what they are now.

I think it is perfectly okay to eat meat, as long as animals are not put through unnecessary suffering.

Animals don't need tho get eaten by us humans . That occurs enough in a natural habitat. People dont need to join the other creatures that go around eating other animals.

Not completely true, it is one reason the brain developed, but there are more reasons, don't twist facts.

There are multiple, but for convenience sake, I had to shorten the technicalities a bit. I had no intentions of twisting the facts @Axonly

I would bet the dog would be kind of gamey tasting.

Plus, I've seen dogs eat their own poop. So I'd guess it has a rather nasty aroma to it too.

I'd hope that my dog would run on a mill for a little while and then be cooked, that way I know that it has been worn down naturally and already tender.

Yes it is hypocritical, loving animals, yet eating meat. I still eat meat, and I am not an animal lover.
