But let me say one thing, if I was put in a situation where my survival depended on killing and eating an animal I'd easily do so.
I don't disagree with your sentiment if you are focusing on the food industry but if I'm hunting and kill a deer is that really abuse???? I think people in that situation would have respect for the animal that is sacrificing its life.
