Most only kill as many as they want to eat.

 

 

Most coursers do it primarily as a sport for, and with, their dogs.

 

As I said, I struggle with motives of those who kill for fun.  Sport is supposed to be fun, for all participants.  If they want to shoot a gun, then go clay pigeon shooting.

I once worked in an animal testing laboratory. Periodically, animals had to be killed. I've never since had any hangups over the experience.

 

 

We are all animals and we all have a degree of killer instinct. Why do so many kids volunteer for the army? Why do so many people go fishing? Why be squeamish about killing animals and then get a halal-meat curry? Why feel bad about killing rabbits but not rats or mice or slugs?

 

 

It's a conundrum that we all have to individually face.

I don't see how this is relevant.  I have little or no issues with animals being used for medical research, but I have huge issues with them being used for cosmetic products like shampoo and makeup.

 

 

We are all animals and we all have a degree of killer instinct. Why do so many kids volunteer for the army? Why do so many people go fishing? Why be squeamish about killing animals and then get a halal-meat curry? Why feel bad about killing rabbits but not rats or mice or slugs?

 

 

Kids go into the army for a number of reasons; Employment, travel, camaraderie, stupidity, adventure etc .  I don't remember seeing any recruitment posters or adverts saying "come and join up and kill people".

 

I have little or no issues with animals being killed for their meat, I just expect it to be done humanely.  

 

I don't feel bad about rabbits being killed for meat, again so long as it's done humanely.  Shock horror, I have poisoned rats in my garage and I don't feel bad about it as I don't believe that it's good to coexist in the same property as them.  

 

 

It's a conundrum that we all have to individually face.

 

It's not really a conundrum for me.  Killing animals for fun is pathetic.
