Inspired by @Breck. Have you ever killed a vertebrate?

I’ve accidentally ran over a squirrel while driving, so yes

Deer, squirrels, rabbits, fish, and some others.

Thankfully, no.

My military service never involved killing, and I have never much enjoyed hunting. So that’s that.

Fish, but I haven’t been fishing for many years. Mice, when I was doing medical research.

I used to keep fish but practiced catch and release starting in the 70’s.

I had to check the definition just to make sure I wasn’t mistaken . I’ve never hunted and I’ve never killed a chicken. I’ve gone fishing but I always released the fish back into the water . So I guess I have never personally killed a vertebrate . That just happens to be true. It’s not because I’m against other people doing it. I love chicken , steak , fish etc

You value meat more once you've taken a life. It becomes more than just a means to eat once you experience what it takes to get it.

That's of little spacey, but again, many children have no idea where hamburger and sausage come from and how it gets to the store.
Once they know, some become Pita nuts or anti-meat vegans.
However my family understands that animals are here for the benefit of mankind.

Becoming one of those people is from a lack of experiencing real life. It's not their fault really, living in those God forsaken cities does it to you; and they didn't choose that life.

I appreciate your comments . I would enjoy fishing and eating it . I will again at some point . If I were able I’d definitely raise chickens. My grandma’s fried chicken and chicken soup was beyond comparison when I compare it to what we get . She raised chickens and It just doesn’t compare. I wouldn’t mind hunting for game meat either , but it’s not something I have any expertise in . I don’t know how to prepare a fish either . I’m really disconnected from the land I guess .
