I do not advocate cruelty to animals.
In fact I think most animals are ok to live with especially if they do not bite, can be transformed into a nice hot meal and you do not have to pick up shit behind their lazy asses.
That being said, I get irritated by these PETA folks who put so much value on animals that perhaps they forget one thing.
Animals Do Not Give Two Shits.
Imagine this, it is 2018 and 3N has chosen to forgo nyama for more than a decade now.
He wears no wool, no hide…etc. Now in his mid 30’s has become a true PETA freak, mpaka he occasionally hugs trees to feel closer to nature.
On this particular afternoon dressed in Khaki shorts, safari boots and a hat, he is keenly observing a lion as it basks under the scorching sun of the Mara plains.
What 3N doesn’t know and of course the lion will not let on; is that the lion has not had a meal in a quite some time.
In fact it has also been keenly observing one healthy 3N and wondering if he will suffice for an afternoon of bring your own meat fiesta.
Long story short the lion makes a move in what can only be described as WTF happened split second!
3N now finds himself pinned down under the lion’s strong paws praying to the gods of PETA to save his flesh first and if they have enough time left, his soul.
But alas the gods of PETA never planned for this occasion. They loved and cared for all animals without regard to how the same animals would treat humans in their time of Need.
Luckily for 3N a ranger had heard the commotion and with one shot had beautifully splattered most of what was formally know as the lion’s brain matter on the ground.
And thanks to the park ranger the lion’s plan to force a premature meet and greet for 3N and his maker had now been abruptly halted.
The moral of this story is: Everything in life including passion for animals has to be logical and measured.
We should not be inhumane to animals but we must also understand and appreciate why some of them are also carnivorous.
Life is a cycle and if we don’t play our part and subscribe to People Eating Tasty Animals, we are also failing nature.
