The animal population would begin to diminish because we are eating their food source.

and another thing, we currently force breed animals. If we stop doing that there should be no issue.

Danielle, yes, predator animals exist to keep down the number of prey animals. That said, why would us no longer farming livestock for meat suddenly destroy a system that has worked for millions of years? I have never heard anyone suggest releasing all cows, pigs, and other meat animals into the wild, and I would oppose this if it were proposed because they would consume all of the food, then the vast majority would starve to death. At worst there would be an overpopulation of animals for a year or two, then the predators would increase population since there would be more food available, then many of them would die off once numbers stabilized. It has happened in nature many times. The world wouldn't suddenly be covered in cows

No, I am not an idiot. I am a logical person who is capable of putting myself in someone else's shoes to understand their perspective. The topic is about the world becoming overpopulated with animals if people became vegetarians. Your pizza is irrelevant, whether they are prey animals is irrelevant, and your opinion on vegetarians is irrelevant. There is a debate about vegetarians spreading their message, which you know because you are part of it, so why post this here? It has nothing to do with the topic. Personal attacks on my intelligence really don't provide any evidence that you have a good point, nor does ignoring the topic to attack something you disagree with. If you have something to contribute to this topic, please feel free, but try to keep in mind what the debate is about.

no for all the reasons I said on the other argument, it just annoys me, prey animals are here for food for the predators the same way predators are here to control the number of prey

are you an idiot? its not because they disagree with others its because they are stupid! yes ethical yes don't like meat but no happy prancy lamb who cares if the chicken on my pizza was once alive and living in a shed with other alive happy chickens it taste nice why should we care otherwise?

Any particular reason or just don't like hearing people who disagree with your actions?

If everyone was vegetarian, there would be no farms breeding animals since there would be no market for them. Farmers wouldn't just release thousands of cattle into the wild, and even if they did, the cows wouldn't survive.
