What is wrong with eating an invasive species? They do exist. Alien animals coming to a new environment and finding no natural enemies. they tend to destroy the native animals and wreak ecological mayhem.
I was reading about the snakes somewhere in the Pacific on an island. They came over not long ago and have nothing that eats them. They, however, have a buffet of native birds and animals and are destroying them. I think mongooses or dogs were being brought in to control them but that doesn't always work. Sometimes these animals go after the native species too instead.
Closer to home, here in the Great Lakes, we've got the Asian Carp. It's decimated lake ecosystems. It's so dangerous, it's against the law to even own one as a pet due to the risk of it getting in the environment. There's even a screen built to try and keep it out of the lakes.
The thing with the Asian Carp is that it's edible. Letting it breed in the water is out of the question as it destroys native populations, but when it does reach the Great Lakes, consuming it might prove to be an option (especially since it will kill everything else).
My question is, what is wrong with doing this to save the environment? The problem with most invasive species is they're terrible to eat. (Zebra Mussels, another great lakes destroyer that effects the plant life thus effecting native fish are horrible and taste awful).
These are animals that are prolific naturally and have the potential to destroy the ecosystem. Are the morals about killing them the same for a species artificially inflated to meet a demand?
and what about our duty to the environment to protect it?
