Just wondering what thoughts <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/sneaky.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":shifty:"> are out there .<br><br><br><br>
Would you eat meat from an animal that has died of natural courses ? (not a diseased one) that is there has been no life taken .<br><br><br><br>
To me , there would be no karma involved from a spiritual point of view .<br><br><br><br>
I couldn't get past the cooking it with out <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/spew.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":spew:"> ing.<br><br><br><br>
In India there is a big industry that waits around for a cow to die naturally so they can get there hide to make shoes , don't know if they use over parts.<br><br><br><br>
So your views are welcome<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/rolleyes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":rolleyes:">

No.<br><br><br><br>
For one, I believe that animals are not on earth for us to eat.<br><br>
Secondly, the thought of eating meat disgusts me, regardless of how the animal died.

Sure, I would have no ethical problem eating something that died naturally.<br><br><br><br>
But I choose to go vegetarian, so I don't eat any animals.

iIts interesting what Micheal said about a loved dog<br><br><br><br>
In NZ a lot of farmers bring up lambs and calves for there kids as pets(they are orphaned ones)<br><br><br><br>
When they get to big they send them to the slaughter house to come back as meat for the table a lot wont take the family pet back but ask for a replacement as they "could not eat the family pet" ....strange but true .<br><br><br><br>
I think if those who say "I don't see anything wrong with eating meat" visited a slaughter house and then said it , wouldn't agree with it but would accept there where they are coming from .<br><br><br><br>

I wouldn't have any ethical problem with it providing the owner of said animal was ok with it. I personally would have a problem with someone eating my dead pets, so eating my dead animals would fall under unethical (imo). I also wouldn't have an <i>ethical</i> problem with someone eating a dead person, provided that is what the family wanted, but I would have a gross out problem with it.<br><br><br><br>
I wouldn't eat meat regardless of the source, but ethics wouldn't come into it in that situation.

Ethically, I think it's better than eating animals that died unnaturally. And I don't believe it would be any great injustice to the dead animal. But I still wouldn't eat it because eating meat, from any source, is simply unappealing to me.

If an animal dies, it died of something. There's no such thing as "dying of old age"....I mean, it refers to dying at an old age, but something causes it. Most likely, if it died of natural causes, it's diseased....or it wouldn't be dead!<br><br><br><br>
If it's diseased, I wouldn't eat it....<br><br><br><br>

<span style="color:#008000;">I wouldn't eat it, no matter what. Not if it had a bag of money tied around its neck and 2 airline tickets to the destination of my choice.<br><br>
No, huh uh. No way.</span>

The only circumstance I can possibly imagine doing something like this would be in a life or death/starvation type situation. However in that type of situation I could possibly consider taking life (hunting, etc) to continue my own, so who knows. BUt no, if an animal just died naturally, I wouldnt eat it if I didnt have to. I dont need it for nutritional value, and I would prefer to lay it to rest with respect.
