I think this is about the craziest thing I've ever heard. There is so much more suffering going on in the world, yet people get upset over a crab? I have been hunting many times with my father and my ex-husband. I was taught to kill quickly and not to kill unless the animal is a danger to me or my family (diseased rabbits on my grandmother's property and rattlesnakes in the yard) or we or someone else is going to eat it. I"ve hunted rabbits, squirrels, and deer. I have killed rabbits and squirrels but never a deer. I love fishing and eating my catch. However, I am also an avid fishkeeper and have kept fish for over 6 years consecutively and off and on for the past 14 years. I get upset when I go into local fish stores and see those feeder goldfish tanks where there are way too many fish in the tank and they are suffering from malnutrition and disease. I also get upset when I see dyed fish and hybrids because that is not natural and is only a gimmick to make a profit. Those really get my blood boiling! I know that keping fish in an aquarium is not natural but my fish are very well cared for and I have kept and bred fish that were highly endangered in their natural habitat. I have 4 different species right now that are over 7 years old and one of unknown age but was full grown when I bought it 5 years ago. Would I eat those fish? No, because in the past, I had to use chemicals to heal diseases such as ich. I don't know what those medicines might do to my family. Otherwise, if we needed food and that was available, I'd have no problem killing and eating them.
