Bonecleaning/skinning anon (mouse anon wasnt me): I do not kill animals! I scavenge things that have died naturally and from people that murder animals who don't even respect them then dump their poor bodies off, I take what I find and clean them because I respect those animals and they deserve cherished. I am NA and come from a NA family so this is a very serious subject for me, I don't take poaching lightly. Sorry for the ramble, just clarifying.
No problem! Sorry if I insulted you. Poaching is a really serious issue, I agree— personally I don’t buy ‘exotic’ bones off ebay, like antelope or big cats or monkeys, since it’d be so impossible to know if the animal was poached. However, some exotic animals like ostriches are actually ranched in america, so that’s cool.
I can’t imagine getting into vulture culture without developing an enormous respect for the world, and for life itself. Everything is so fragile and beautiful— it’s so important to take care of living creatures as well as admiring what gets left behind after death.
