My ethics are these:

I try to keep the best possible environment for each tank.

I take it personally when something goes wrong. Like a water change gone bad due to additives from the water company.

Sick fish get euthanized then buried in the garden. (If I can't cure them)

I have nothing against fishing, I just won't touch them to get them off the hooks. (Yeah, I can be girlie)

I have nothing against hunting for food. I've even skinned a moose.

I have issues with animal abuse. MAJOR issues. I have gone after someone with a baseball bat that I took from him after he hit his puppy with it for peeing on a linoleum floor. Did I mention I have animal abuse issues?

Would you consider it animal abuse if I hunted puppies and skinned them?

Depends on the person...those fur coats those rich people wear? They don't give a thought about where they come from...The people wearing overalls and boots? They've never worn them because it's either too expensive or they know where it came from...

The point is that there is no difference. We create these imaginary lines to justify our perception of reality.
