Why? What is the difference in eating turtles or cows?

January 30, 2016

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/ZoltanDamo

Turtles are endangered

January 30, 2016

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/FanddenRidder

But the livestock is the main reason of extinction of a lot of other species.

You know that consumption is the only reason why cows arent "endangered", right?

Meh, whatever

Cows are also milked, not just slaughtered. Furthermore Indians a special respect towards them. So they are on the safe side. Which you can't say about turtles.

Ok

if you really want to draw india into this, okay. cows in India are arguably off way worse than in other countries, they live on the streets, are malnourished and feed mainly off trash. (reason being cows legally cant be owned in India and you really arent allowed to do a lot with them, so no one feels responsible for any of them and their needs) if you actually visit india once you wouldn't say that this is cow heaven. maybe somewhere like the alps though, where they can roam around "freely" (big fenced in areas, but still) and eat fresh grass all day

In Denmark, and maybe in the other Scandinavian countries, Skilpadder are chocolate candies http://shop.toms.dk/Produkter-1.aspx?ProductID=PROD110 SO maybe this is the reason we have such a sentence !

turtles had a rather infectious ad campaign in Canada when I was a kid.

But most commonly made by Nestle so possibly also evil.

Funny, how horrified the people can be about those who eat turtles, dogs, 'mice', snakes, etc. but they think it's extremely normal devour cows. In some places the people eat whales meat, what's the deal... ? To my mind is the same... !

And Koreans eat dogs and cats and no one ever gets after them

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/April623004

No one keeps a whale or cow as a pet so anthropomorphism doesnt apply to them, therefore its not considered taboo to eat them. It is considered taboo to eat a pet animal like the ones you mentioned. Hope that helps :)

Is there a difference between "turtle" and "tortoise" in Norwegian?

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/kosmocherry

No, for some reason even though they are different animals, they are both "skilpadde"

Why is the translation for this "they eat shell -pads"

July 5, 2019

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/YeetHitter2004

I'm no Norwegian expert but I guess they named them shell-pads because they have shells...?
