    Do you consider this animal cruelty?

    I came across some videos on youtube of japanese/chinese whatever making sashimi
    which is raw fish,frogs, and squid and they like to prepare them real quick so that they still move.
    these videos have a lot of dislikes

    It's a dog eat dog world. It's animal cruelty but it's also life.

    Its also animal cruelty when you take a truck of cows to the slaughterhouse so either learn to live with it or become a vegen that's my only advise

    Re: Do you consider this animal cruelty?

    That last vid...Probably the only time I've felt bad for a fish

    However, IDK, fish consume their pray when it's alive too, however, there is the difference that those people are just being dicks about it and making it more painful for the fish...So IDK, I guess it could be be considered a form of animal cruelty, sure, but the fact is that eating pray alive is pretty common in the animal world...These fish have definitely eaten some alive things in their lifetime

    Re: Do you consider this animal cruelty?

    I've seen all of these before. Gotta stop going to the weird side of youtube.
    Anyway, fun fact: those animals that were twitching were dead. The muscles were just spasming after their deaths, so stop feeling so bad about it. Feel bad for the squids and octopi that are actually eaten alive, if you want.

    I've eaten things alive. Prefer them dead.
    Took a shot of patron with a live minnow in it once. Felt it wiggling for a while afterwards.

    It is not animal cruelty, it is just how they eat their food. Torturing the animals and not eating them is cruelty. I see no problem with the way they were eating their food, most of those were dead anyway, feeling nothing.

    Re: Do you consider this animal cruelty?

    it would depend on a few factors. If the people are cutting and maiming the animals just for fun, and to see them squirm, then as we are not primative animals and hold ourselves to higher standards, then it is animal cruelty. Basically the only one i had a real problem with was the frog one. It seemed like the person got it just to watch the frog suffer. The fish one, was not cruelty at all, but the way the people were taunting the fish was not right. You can cut off a fishes head, and it will still move and stuff....

    So as long as the people are doing it to eat, and to not enjoy the suffering, then it is completly fine. (like a fisher man fillets a fish, the fish is still alive while its flesh is being cut off, but it is being done for the purpose of eating, and not just to watch it suffer.)

    The squid is a good example, while it is sad that the squid was cut up the way it was, it was being done for the sole purpose of getting the meats, as fresh as possible, and such. wasnt like the frog where it was done to watch it squirm.


    Its sorta like hunting....its fine to go out and hunt animals, but it is wrong to kill them solely for sport(like some people who may shoot a deer and then take its head or something, but not eat the meat.)

    If you dont like this then dont be a carnivore, because even the frog one, was nicer that many animals would get in the wild being eaten by some other carnivore.....imagin being like the frog, only your sitting cut in half, slowly disenigrating in some dogs stomach, as after bitting you in half, he swallowed you whole.


    Simply while it is very disgusting what these people are doing, in no way is it aThe taunting the fish is sorta borderline, and the frog is barely not cruelty. If any of this were done without the purpose of consumption it would be cruelty.


    SIMPLY tortureing animals and killing them for no reason at all, is animal cruelty. While the methods may be cruel in killing sometime, it is not cruelty if the animal is killed for the purpose of being consumed.
