    It depends on how they're killed hunting or traditional ranching/farming isn't but mass produced slaughterhouses where they either spend their entire life in a cage or tiny crowded pen and fattened until they're full sized yea I'd say that is cruel treatment.

    No it's part of nature. I think it's funny people often say this, because it makes me think the next thing on the agenda are activists suing lions and sharks and things for being cruel to animals. Life is cruel, death is cruel, you can't fend off nature, it's natural to eat meat, we're omnivores and don't give me this crap about how we're sentient beings, because I think all creatures are!

    nope, it was what we was designed for apart of the food chain, its like telling a wild dog it cant eat a rabbit, when it was made to help keep the food balance, though there are veggie eaters, i perfer my potatoes with a side of steak anyday :P

    Killing for food is a part of nature. The way in which some animals are treated and killed (like in factory farms) is cruel, but the act of killing for food is not, in itself, animal cruelty.

    I think if an animal is starting to become extinct and people are still killing and eating them, then yes. If there are plenty of animals left, like cows, chickens, etc, then no because there is more and more being bred and born than other wildlife. I'm a meat eater. I don't each much pig but I do love cow and chicken.

    However Kosher and Halal meat are treated more humanely than normally done.

    The way in which they are slaughtered is animal cruelty. Going out and hunting for food and resources is not, however factory farming is.

    But I suppose there are too many people in the world to expect everyone to be able to hunt and conquer their own food.

    If you hunt for your own meat, then not really because you're hunting wild animals.
    If you buy meat from the butcher or the supermarket, yes. Have you seen their living conditions? Even chickens who lay free range eggs are treated badly. Free range can still mean as little as 30 minutes a day, and when that's up they're stuffed back into not-so-humane conditions.

    That's why I don't eat meat, and when I have my own home I'll hopefully be getting chickens too.

    It rather depends on how they are treated when they are alive doesn't it?

    Livestock and game animals are abundant and are food. It is not cruel to kill food.

    Come on, what will we eat then? Meat has nutrients that vegetables don't.
    Besides, its for food, not for fun like torturing them.

    depends on how they died and their living situations before their death.
    battery caging chickens for example is animal cruelty.

    Cruel treatment indeed. Under those circumstances, death would probably be a relief.

    We are naturally designed to eat meat, unless it's Kentucky Fried Children.
