etc. Now I only enjoy the eating. I've become an end product of modern
society, living in the city for too long. I can't stand to think of what
is involved in the acquisition of my juicy steak. Likewise since taking
on fish keeping I just can't stomach killing fish for sport or
consumption for that matter. However, I will readily eat fish or flesh
of any sort without delay if presented in the form of fine cuisine. I
know it's not logically sound, but oddly enough, that's how I feel.

As long as the fish are taken legally and they are consumed, I don't see
anthing wrong with it. If they are just used to prove one's skill as a
fisher and discarded unused, then keeping those fish is reprehensible, in my
That being said, I'll never forget the rush I got back in my teens when
I hooked what I can only suspect was a mammoth sturgeon. When the canoe
spun around and the line snapped it left my bother in-law and I
wondering what it might have been for the rest of our natural lives.
Nowadays, my life is different. For example, I don't much care for
spiders or insects in the house, as they will likely multiply and take
over if given the chance, but I _will not_ kill them senselessly. I
believe they have just as much right to life as I do. So, I just
relocate them. Same with rodents or any other form of life that cares to
enter my home. On the other hand it hasn't been a problem. Our cats
definitely do enjoy senseless killing quite a bit and I even get a great
deal of joy coaxing their enthusiasm. I believe it to be their form of
artistic expression: creating dead things. *laugh*
During the summer indoors it can be a good span of time between bug
sightings. I'm certain this can be attributed to the feline members of
our family, since we use no other form of control. Wild rodent or snake
sightings have been 0 thus far and I suspect that will continue to be
the case so long as they remain with us. The neighbour on the other hand
has issues with rodent nesting in his garage. I must remember to ask him
to desist from using poisons and lend him a cat or something.
