Is eating roadkill more ethical than eating meat from an animal that was raised to be eaten?
They are both ethical.
Is there a reason it would be?
Depends on how old the road kill is.
I like to eat beaver
Roadkill! It's what's for dinner...🍔 🍲
I guess it's just natural to me. Being raised to understand that livestock is for food and not pets. They aren't mistreated in any way, but you know they aren't pets. My pets are even working pets, my dog is a heeler who helps herd the cattle.
Slightly. Roadkill is still kill though accidental. Eating animals that died from natural causes might be more ethical to those rejecting the killing of animals. What's already dead without human interference can be scavenged.
I think there are safety concerns in eating animals that die from natural causes. "Natural causes" usually means disease.
Unless you are there when the animal dies, you have no idea how long they have been dead. There are a lot of bad things that happen unless the animal is processed quickly.
I happen to be equipped with a sense of smell.😏
That's not good enough.
Road kill is not usually a natural death. Problem might be the internal organs are damaged and all kinds of crap could be smeared all over.
Just the family. Generally two steers or heifers every fall are processed. That will last most of the year.
Oops! Meant as a reply to below.
Got it. We buy directly from farmers, 1/2 a cow at a time. Always on the lookout for new sources.
Don't blame you. Fresh grass or corn fed beef is the best you can get.
Stop the truck Jethro! There's a fresh kill in the road!!!
It's ethical to eat all meat. Don't let VC convince you otherwise.
Give me some credit. Do you really think vegan could convince me of anything?
I raise my own beef. I even name the cattle after cuts of steak. Call me what you will, I don't give a shit. Lol!
Do you sell or just raise it for yourself?
Political, vegan said in another poll that he advocates eating roadkill and placentas. I'm pretty sure that excommunicates him from the cult of veganism.
It would have have to be damn fresh road kill if I ate it.
I had a nice 22 oz. porterhouse tonight, cooked medium, with loaded mashed potatoes. :)
