Would you kill your pet dog or cat to eat it? How about an animal you're not emotionally attached to? Is the thought of slaughtering a cow or chicken or pig with your own hands too much to handle?

Did you at least make sure that none went to waste and to take a moment to be grateful for its sacrifice?
