    which is better:
    if you see an animal dying, say about half dead, would you:

    1)kill it quickly to put it out of pain
    2)let it lie there outside and die slowly?

    well, my gun-hating, meat-hating,vegan, PETA fool friend says it's better to let it die slowly.


    because serial killers kill animals when they were kids, and he's not a serial killer.

    "but connor, there was that serial killer who would buy mice and kill them and he took his cat and dragged it behind his bike until it was almost dead - see? serial killers kill animals when they're kids"

    just a look inside a bliss ninny's head.

    that is all.

    ...little did he realize that the serial killer killed the animals for enjoyment, not out of sympathy...

    I wouldn't hesitate to shoot the animal ,to put it out of it's misery,however you have to watch out there are laws about killing domesticated animals .If nobody see's you do it then nobody has to know.

    Ask him ,if he knew he was going to do either way, would he want to die agonizingly slow painfull death by 2 needles or would he rather just be shot in th head?

    Heh. I've heard that one. I have a similar tale:

    A buddy and his quiet girlfriend were visiting a few years ago. He was a childhood friend, and we had spent a lot of time shooting BB guns together and such. I was getting a bag ready for the range when they dropped by, and after a half-hour of pleasant chit-chat, I remarked that I should get going and invited them to join me.

    In response to my invitation, the girlfriend piped up and said, in a recitory tone of voice, "People who know how to use weapons are more likely to use them against their family and friends." I stared at my buddy for a few seconds, then replied that I refused to live my life preparing for the moment when I go nuts and decide to execute my loved ones. They left shortly thereafter, and our relationship has been chilly ever since.

    I was a groomsman at their wedding. The other two, his old room mates from college, had similar stories.

    And for balance

    I'm a gun loving vegetarian that would put the animal out of it's misery.
    There, order and balance is restored to the universe...

    I'd rescue a dog that could be saved.

    Otherwise, I'd put dying wildlife out of its misery, most likely. There's a group here that rescues injured wildlife. I'd call them if it could be saved.

    Just because I might shoot something to eat (or eat meat from an animal killed by someone else) doesn't mean I won't rescue wildlife. The wildlife rescue types don't get that, though. They have big hearts, but small minds.

    Put your gun-hating, meat-hating,vegan, PETA fool friend out of his/her misery. :barf: My guess is that you will soon identify other things that you do not have in common until they outnumber the things that you do have in common.

    You have to wonder what he's trying to prove and whom he's trying to prove it to.

    On second thought, I believe I'd rather not know.

    Tell your "gun-hating, meat-hating,vegan, PETA fool friend" that one is an act of kindness, while the other is an act of cruelty, and ask whether he'd rather be kind, or cruel.

    Well maybe you should put the PETA guy out of his misery.

    More to the point ... if he had just been run over by an 18-wheeler and was lying on the side of the road, most of the bones in his body broken beyond repair and his intestines hanging out through the gaping hole in his abdomen, would he prefer that the guy who stops and has a pistol on his belt just drive away and leave him there to die "peacefully," or would he rather the guunie put him out of his way mercifully?

    Hasn't he ever heard the expression "They shoot horses, don't they?" Doesn't he have a clue what that refers to? (Never mind ... stupid question, not deserving of a response.)

    I've done it before (mostly small animals injured by lawn equipment) and would do it again. I always feel terrible but it's more humane than letting the poor little thing bleed to death.

    On one of the motorcycle boards I frequent , someone posted a story with photos. Apparently a driver hit a cougar directly in front of him. The animal was severely injured and another driver pulled up, looked at the poor creature and put it out of it's agony with a pistol shot. The driver that hit the lion was , coincidentally a lady who worked at a shelter for injured big cats. I don't recall how she took it.

    A guy up here rolled his pickup and horse trailer, and he was trapped in the cab.

    The hiway patrol came along and found his horse with a broken leg in the trailer, so he pulled out his gun and shot it.

    Then he found the guy's dog that had been thrown out of the back of the pickup and hurt bad, so the patrolman shot the dog too.

    The patrol walked up to the pickup, leaned down and asked the driver how he was doing?

    The guy responds: "Never felt better in my life!"

    haha, you guy's responces crack me up...
    i DID ask him this. i don't remember the answer. i think he weaseled his way around it.

    other than the aforementioned problems with him, he's a cool kid, and we get along well. as long as he dosn't speak about his bullsh-t ideas, it dosn't make me want to stab him.

    been there, done that. i think he weaseled out of that question/statement too.

    I'm another gun nut vegetarian.

    I have no problem with the humane act of putting an animal out of it's misery.

    Hopefully someone would be able to do it for me if the situation arose.

    Alas, human life is too important to let it end painlessly.

    People Eating Tasty Animals.... sounds like an oxymoron eh? :D

    In the words of the famous Ted Nugent... " You can't grill it ... Till you kill it"
