I thought it would be obvious that they require hunting - this is what I was referring to when I said they must actively inflict injury on other animals.(Original post by Birkenhead)
There's so much wrong with this. Carnivores need meat and in the wild this requires hunting. Or are you expecting them to make use of complimentary buffets situated at intervals in the savannah and elsewhere?
I think this sentence is the greater nonsense. If there was only one female lion left in the world, lions' role in the ecosystem would have been all but wiped out already.(Original post by Birkenhead)
The idea that animals are not worth saving because they have miserable lives and hunt each other is also nonsensical because our ecosystem is a delicate thing and taking out too many pieces would ultimately cause humans misery.
If preserving life means being complicit in its enduring suffering then I think I would rather accept the criticism of carelessness.(Original post by Birkenhead)
There's also something careless about not wanting to preserve life; not only does each life form have its own value but there are things we can learn in research from other living animals that can benefit humans in many areas.
I wouldn't choose the lion here but your post was crazy.

If there were only one lionness left, lions would be functionally extinct. Lions rule, but then I'd save my own family.
