LADbible’s Agree To Disagree: Hunter Vs Vegan
For this week's instalment of Agree to Disagree, we've turned our attention to the animal kingdom - and the place it may or may not have on the dinner table.
We got hunter Rachel to sit down with a vegan campaigner known as Earthling Ed, who believes meat is murder.
While Rachel proudly hunts all of her own meat, saying she disagrees with the 'perfectly-wrapped pink pieces of flesh' found in supermarkets, Ed chooses not to use any animal products whatsoever.
"When we kill an animal, we don't show respect to them; we take their life from them completely unnecessarily, and it has no purpose in either of our lives," Ed tells Rachel during the conversation.

But Rachel hits back by arguing Ed's diet may not be as ethical as he admits, saying that in many industries involving plants and crops, there will have been 'animals that have died'.
She also wonders if veganism may be the 'devolution of man', saying: "I think we need to keep that connection to nature."
Will Ed agree with Rachel on the role hunting can play in controlling animal populations? Will Rachel understand Ed's argument that there's no such thing as humane slaughter? Or will the two have to just agree to disagree?
