152. I was thinking about this last night
Edited on Thu Dec-08-05 02:10 PM by XemaSab
and I was thinking that natural deaths are not pretty or romantic.

Most wild animals don't die peacefully in their sleep.

I've seen a deer killed by a coyote before, and it was a long, slow, painful, miserable death. Starving to death is also pretty miserable. I'm not trying to say that hunting is a nice way to go either, but the cruelty argument doesn't really hold water for me considering the alternatives.

The fact that it's right in front of you doesn't make it more or less cruel.
