Subj: Yes, we do eat to live. I wouldn't want to kill off an entire species though....

I just don't get the morality of it. We eat to live. It's a natural thing. It doesn't matter what we eat, as long as it's healthy and not other people (and even with people, it's more of an issue with killing and health).

If they're endangered, it just means they're evolutionary failures, anyway.

If humans weren't so greedy for land and fuel and I don't know how else, the animals wouldn't be endangered in the first place.
