On Killing

Submitted by John_O on Mon, 08/11/2008 - 16:49

Bizarrely (or inevitably) whilst driving away from the Monro Pub, along the waterfront in Liverpool, my car collided with a baby seagull, killing it instantly.

Although this was an accidental killing, and not a controlled slaughter, it certainly brought home to me the seriousness of the act of killing an animal. 

Should The Meat Licence Proposal accept more arbitrary means of killing as sufficient?

Does this legal loophole mean that I would still be required to kill ANOTHER bird, in order to eat poultry, or should the categorisation be made more open (or abandoned)?

Did it taste nice?
