    That's a rather atrocious system of morality. Why exactly shouldn't that apply to all humans as well? Taking what we want from other humans when we want? Survival of the fittest after all.

    They AREN'T necessary. Merely because we have reasoned otherwise does not make said reason automatically sound.

    Good day pg, and good to see you. I see things haven't changed a lot over the past year and a half. Thank you for the Memorial Day shout out and the belated B'day wishes...

    Okay? That still doesn't justify your actions.

    If hes so far on his last legs then why is he "supposedly" constantly fit enough to halt others from breeding before they are ready? This story has holes in it no matter what.

    It's entirely possible said animal was physically capable of preventing others from breeding but did not have the capability himself anymore.

    Why are you opposed to freedom of speech? Fill us in.

    Telling someone to shut up is every bit a right of free speech as what was initially said. Forcing them to shut up is another topic... one that didn't happen here.

    It's also entirely possible that this is a ridiculous reason to justify ending someone's life.
