Would you still eat meat if you had to look the animal in the eye and kill it yourself?

My sister in law asked me that question and I thought it was intriguing.

Yes, I would. Majority of the people in my family are hunters & I'm the one who butchers the meat (Not I help, I do it all myself) only because I don't like the way they do it, sometimes they'll forget to cut off a piece of tallow or something & well, no, just no. Can't stand ANY tallow or anything being left on... & hey if you save the tallow you can make soap & candles with it =)

Yup. My dad's side of the family hunts, my moms side raises chickens and cows to eat. Nothing new to me.

Quoting Jessy76:

I voted yes my DH and his family have always been hunters. While I don't go on the hunting trips I do help butcher the meat when they bring it home.

No I couldn't eat it. I love meat but I couldn't kill it then eat it.

Quoting BigMamaStacy:

Yes I would. See, you don't have to look it in the eyes. You can sneak up behind it or something. lol. But seriously, I would slaughter my own meat. It's healthier that way anyways.

Yes. We raised cows chickens and pigs. Played with them named them sometimes but then when their time came we killed them and ate them.

I voted other because I already do. I'm a hunter and I raise my own meat chickens and hopefully a pig next year.
