After working at an animal shelter for 3 years, I do understand peoples' views that there are plently of them around.
But also after working at that shelter, I could never do that to them.
Yes, I started with rats as pets, and was disgusted with the idea of feeding them to reptiles. However, after meeting a few snakes, working with them, and understanding the snakes, I now don't mind it.
But, I did have to sell all of my pets, and kept only feeder breeders, and my breeding stock of hairless. Even then, if I had nothing else, the hairless juvies would be food (last resort only though).
In my own religion, I can't justify using a cat or dog to feed my snakes (not that I currently have anything big enough to eat them, but one day).
