It depends on your point of view doesn’t it?
The struggle of this beetle was hard to watch. I had first thought of posting it as a video but changed my mind. The spider was slowly killing it and that’s what spiders do. So, taking sides by showing the fat bug’s desperate struggle to live was probably injecting too much melodrama into an everyday occurrence in the insect world.
We humans don’t eat other humans. We probably did in the way-back days. Today we have the ability to kill and consume anything we want and don’t give much thought to what dies for our survival.
Maybe we should think more about what we kill?
