Re: feeling guilty about feeding

If a snake eats f/t there's really no reason to feed live. Most of us feed f/t because it's easier and more humane but whether you feed live or f/t the prey still has to be killed and I doubt it's a completely painless experience for the prey. All life is sacred imo but I also understand that animals, humans included, eat other animals to survive. There may very well be some folks who get a "thrill" out of feeding live but I believe that's a very small minority of keepers. Most of us care about not only our animals but all animals. To call anyone who feeds live sadistic is way out of bounds.
