    Default Could you eat Dolphin?

    Why / Why not?

    Could you kill one?

    What about apes and dogs?

    I'm mostly interested in WHY you would or wouldn't, what factors do you consider?

    I guess it depends on how hungry I am. I would do what I had to do if the circumstances call for it. Without hesitation. That's life.

    Evidence Points To Conscious 'Metacognition' In Some Nonhuman Animals

    No. Partially because of this.

    I would not kill or eat companion animals, or dolphins or apes. Or whales.
    I'm down to just a little piece of chicken a couple of times a week. I wish I didn't eat animals at all. I would be a vegan if I could. (I'm working on it.) I was good with the chicken until my cousin sent me a picture of her pet chicken and described how affectionate and playful it is. *sigh* I don't want to kill and eat things that show evidence of being able to love.

    Oooh. Yeah, I could never eat a primate of any sort. Way too close to being human.

    As for dolphins...well...the little girl inside of my goes "WAHHH" not dolphins! Then again, I think cows are adorable but as soon as you serve one cooked in a bun or slathered in BBQ sauce I'm all over it, so I can't make any guarantees.

    I wouldn't have a problem with eating dog, but I probably couldn't kill one.

    What stops you from eating apes and dogs?

    I could eat dolphins, apes or dogs even if I'm not starving. Endangered species are an exception. I could never kill one of these animals though, if they do not attack me.

    Genetically, cognitively or behaviourally?

    Apes
    - Diseases
    - Human characteristics (I'd feel like a cannibal)
    - Disgusting
    - The thought of their taste
    - The thought of seeing a huge cooked hand
    - The thought of a fully cooked ape

    Dogs
    - Diseases
    - Disgusting
    - The thought of a cooked dog on a plate
    - The thought of their taste
    - The thought of seeing it's freaky wet eyes rolling around the plate

    Need I say more?
