My daughter actually wanted me to ask this question. I personally love deer meat, which I think prompted this. I think she may turn out to be a vegetarian. But, she does love chicken. She's asking........Do you think it's right to eat innocent animals? Of course, her response is NO.

I have always loved venison, I used to even hunt, but it's been years sinced I hunted. If we did not eat meat, we would soon have an over population problem with deer, elk, bear, etc. You say her thought on this is it's not right to eat innocent animals and yet she eats chicken? does she eat beef? pork? just curious, because if she eats these other meats, then what does she consider 'innoncent' animals? I don't think I could survive as a vegetarian, lol and I know my s/o couldn't he's a meat-etarian lol

I could never eat deer meat !! I would be like your daughter , I can eat chicken and pig ( pork chops , ham and bacon ) but that is pretty much it for me when it comes to meat . Many that have known me for years still think I am a vegetarian , which I am not but I don't care to eat much meat . My husband eats deer and any other kind of meat there is out there . He is not picky and as long as it is meat he will eat it . He has pestered me to try it many times and I have tried but everytime I do , I get an image of this cute little animal and feel like I am going to be sick . I just am not able to do it . Many say it is just that I have brainwashed myself into thinking it is wrong rather then the meat not tasting good because what I have tried I have not cared for . Either found it too greasy or just a funny taste to it and maybe they are right but I don't see myself changing anytime soon :)

No absolutely not it is not okay to eat innocent animals. In case you couldn't tell by my response I am a vegetarian. How old is your daughter? She sounds like me pre going veg. I used to ask my mom questions like that all the time. I also used to love chicken too, but not really other meats. Chicken was the last thing i gave up, but now I have been strickly vegetarian for about 5 years.
