a related story: once, a co-worker of mine was holding one of my newborn leos, and she accidentally crushed it (dont ask me how, she is an idiot). she was shocked upset when i fed the dying animal to a young mole kingsnake, saying that i should euthanize it and have a proper burial and such. i think that an animal shouldnt be wasted like that, that it is natural for animals to be eaten. my philosophy carries over, in that if any of my animals were injured in such a way that they could not heal properly and lead a comfortable life, i would rather feed it off than waste it. the fact that it was once my pet does not bother me, as i do not consider it disrespectful. it seems right that it should be returned to the "system," as it were.
