In Defense of Omnivorism

Many vegetarians refuse to eat meat because it amounts to the murder of defenseless animals.  In the past, to get meat, one would have to go hunt by stalking an animal and killing it with practiced skill or a cunning plot.  The failure rate was high on hunts, and much energy was expended in sometimes futile attempts to attain proteiny nourishment.

Today, all we must do is go to the supermarket, a restaurant, or even McDonalds (although there's no guarantee the rib thing pictured below is actually from an animal).  The animals are generally farmed and have little to no chance of successfully fighting back or escaping.  However, this is not always the case.  Animals still have a chance to fight back.  Since we've all seen pictures of livestock farms, I don't fault you for disbelieving my claim.

However, as they say, seeing is believing.  I present to you a bona fide case of a present day failed hunt due to a fortuitous battle waged by one brave animal who opted to stand up to the man for all of his fellow future entrees:
