    Wouldn't relish the act but if it's to survive then yes

    Yes.

    I've caught and gutted my own fish before but never anything with legs.

    Yes I would if there were no shops nearby and I needed to do it to survive.

    If I was starving and there was literally no other food. And if it wasn't my pet.

    I already eat plenty of meat, so it seems like it would be hypocritical if I wouldn't kill one if I needed to.

    In a moral sense I'm already killing animals, albeit indirectly, because my consumption of meat affects the overall demand for meat products, which in turn affects how many are slaughtered.

    Yeah I've done it a fair few times.

    It's quite satisfying to kill, cook and eat your own animal.

    Yes, and actually with my new stance on things it's the best way to have meat.
    1. You're only killing that one animal, whereas if you're buying meat from the industry you're indirectly responsible for the suffering and murder of 1000s of animals.
    2. It's more environmentally friendly as you don't need to worry about feeding them and using up grazing lands
    3. It's probably cleaner than most animals kept in the slaughterhouses.
    4. It lived a life it was meant to live out in the wild, not born in **** conditions just being fattened up for murder.

    Truthfully I don't think I could unless it was an absolute life or death moment. I'd feel extreme guilt and probably wouldn't be able to face eating the animal but would have to force myself if it meant life or death.
