I bring up mosquitoes only because basically everyone hates the fuckers, which we should. But then my next animal are ants. They're insects who can eat both flesh and housing. Nasty animals, right? Well people (including me) have bought ant farms because of our interest in them. They are also some of the most efficient food sources out there (particularly a certain type of termites) www.si.edu/Encyclopedia_SI/nmnh/buginfo/inasfood.htm . Again, no-one would bat an eye if you used Raid on them.

The next step would be rodents. They ruin housing, infest food stockpiles, and carry disease. Yet, once again, people have them as pets. They're even furry and cute. We've domesticated them, too. But the fact remains, they're rodents. Here, we can hopefully start to see a logical pattern. Even though the damage of animals as I listed increased (rodents, usually rats are blamed, but virtually all rodents can carry this, were the driving force behind the black plague), our society views them less and less as vermin, but as pets.

Animals being domesticated have been why the human species is particularly susceptible to so many diseases, many theory. Sure they have their uses, from companionship, hunting, or food source, but they also bring dangers and weaknesses. Does a lion consider the morality of killing a sheep? And what about killer whales playing with seals before killing them? Are predators morally culpable for harming weaker species?

I just don't get why we should be offended by mistreating lesser animals. Sure, if you beat animals, you probably have screws loose, but I'd still wager there's not a moral problem. I just can't conceive of a single logical argument of why it was morally wrong of Petsmart to do what it did in the post. Sure, you may feel as though it's bad, but please have a valid argument asto why. (I use "you" not directly at you, but to the general audience that disagrees with me, I obviously mean no offense)

I want to say i don't disagree with you on what you said.

I just really really wanted to draw a visual of having a mosquito named Jeff as a pet.

I really need some sleep.
