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!  Not only are we hunters, but hubby grew up raising and slaughtering their own meat.  We're actually working on getting set up do so for ourselves again.

Well, I just caught five fish, so...yeah.  I joke all the time that I'm going to catch the rabbits in our yard and make stew.  LOL

Yes. Not a doubt in my mind. We do it with our wild meat already.

I grew up on a farm. My parents raised cows and pigs for food. I watched the neighbor lady choose a chicken, wring it's neck, hang it to allow the blood to drain, pluck it, then cut it up and fry it for dinner.

I'd have to learn how to do it correctly, because I wouldn't want an animal to suffer because I didn't know how to kill it quickly. Killing for food is different than killing just to kill.

I wish I had the space and the energy to do just that.  To raise livestock humanely and organically.

I voted other. I feel like I would probably be skeeved out at first, but I'd eventually get used to it.

No, but I haven't eaten meat in over five years.  Voted other.

I voted other because I'm already a vegetarian :)  However growing up all of our meat was home raised.
