That's what I was saying, I know many animals WOULD eat me, but they can't. They don't have access because we are smarter animals. I'm just saying that I cut them slack because I would want the same done for me if a smarter being came along that was able to make that choice.
With the brainpower that most animals we eat have, it's worse that when people pick on mentally handicapped kids. Cows aren't smart enough to know what's going on or defend themselves. Just because they are that mentally behind us doesn't, at least in my mind, give me the right to kill and eat it.
That's nature man. Some animals are just food for others. The reason most animals can't eat you, is because we have protected ourselves and kept them away. Go on a safari, and you have to worry about everything, because they can eat you there. Many places though do have to worry about dangerous animals still. Just certain first world nations have made it safe. That's not to say though that they can't, you just don't encounter them or put yourself in their path often.
There is no rule that says, that shall not eat another animal, in any thing. Only people who think they are too good to even do what basic nature calls for everything to do choose this stance. But in nature, everything exploits everything. Until we learn to just beam food into existence, it will always be like this.
