Whats up with this taxidermy thing?

Okay, I didn't know what it was, until I saw someone use a dead mouse as a computer mouse. I have always liked instructables, but now I feel sick. Is this something you guys seriously promote? God gave us all the animals on earth. But he didn't do it for this reason. Please remove this section, because it is extremely offensive. Now I will be thinking about it for awhile, and remembering it in disgust. Please instructables team if you have a heart, please take this disgusting stuff off your site.

Honestly, I can understand if you were upset cause' they did that to a wolf or dog or some animal like that, but a mouse?

Okay I think the thing I'm trying to get to here, is doing things like this to a house pet. Because some people have chosen to have a mouse as a house pet. I haven't but I have heard some people have. Also yes if it was a dog I would be even more disgusted. I'm just thinking it's not right for Americans or any country that is not third world do this type of stuff. It's just stupid, why use a mouse on a mouse. Doesn't that make anyone else feel sick?

Some people keep cockroaches as pets.

Would that stop you swatting one?

No because they carry diseases. Also who would have a pet cockroach?

Google is your friend.

People have pet sheep, goats, rabbits, guinea pigs, dogs, hamsters, snakes, stick insects, grasshoppers, snails, horses, camels, alligators, chickens, ducks ...

...yet all of these animals turn up on the legitimate menu somewhere in the world.

But when you say cockroach do you mean a house pet?
Yep people keep virtually anything as a pet these days. Across the street there are people who keep little piggies as housepets. They don't seem to bother that we eat bacon though...
" Also who would have a pet cockroach?" someone with a fondness for one of the most biologically advanced/robust insects on the planet perhaps?

and dogs/wolves/cats don't carry disseases? the majority of house cats carry toxoplasmosis which is not exactly a fun thing to get. any animal that's outside can carry fleas, ticks, and many other parasites. should we start squishing them?

trying to make a point about the validity of an activity based on your own arbitrary rules about who the act can or can't be done upon is pretty silly. who gets to decide which animal is worthy of which activity? you either need to be outraged by the treatment of ALL animals, or you can't be outraged by the treatment of one.
I'm just especially mad about wolves cause' their my favorite animal and like four states have dropped bans on hunting them and now their being killed by the hundreds.

"and the one true god, his noodelyness, sent forth his noodely appendange and spoke unto she who was named canida, thou art hereby commanded to taxidermy who you want, when you want, how you want as long as thou doth not doith the killith"

a message from the FSM...just because "your god" has some useless "rule" about what YOU can do with something that's dead doesn't mean everyone else's god has the same rule.

if you want to argue against something because you think it's gross or because you think its cruelty to animals (which, i'd argue it's pretty close to impossible to be cruel to anything that's already dead) then that's fine...but don't start spouting religious crap assuming that everyone else believes the same things you do
