HA! Again you try to deflect by calling names. Because you cannot separate any of these arguments and keep spouting your roundup party line, let me AGAIN show you that your comparisons have a false premise. If captive bred animals are bred with the purpose of creating pet snakes resulting in a concomitant reduction in the need to take animals from the wild then it is indeed ridiculous to condone the killing of these animals. If however, these animals are bred with the express purpose of killing them for food or boots, etc., then there is nothing wrong with that. You on the other hand are contributing to the needless slaughter of many wild animals which were NOT produced for the purpose for which you are using them. They were not farmed or grown to be slaughtered. If you want to do that willy-nilly then raise and breed your own rather than use the rest which belong to mankind for that purpose. Your pathetic example of a litter of puppies starving to death has no merit because they were not bred to be slaughtered at the first annual Sweetwater Jaycees pet dog roundup.

I do believe you are right that many people did get your point - the point being that you are trying to defend the indefensible position. You should own up to it rather than trying to point the finget at other 'hypocrites.'

And I do believe that you are running because you aren't really admitting to what you are saying and probably feel that your whole intention backfired a little. You really are barking up the wrong tree if you thought that your backwater practices were going to get support on a somewhat naturalist type of forum.
