I grew up in a farming area in upstate NY, the people growing corn and other stuff killed a lot of little critters. They also encouraged my father, and me, to hunt on their property to save them the trouble of killing said critters.
Ever see the cartoons where the farmer keeps trying to kill the polite chipmunks?
Well, contra Warner Bros., the farmer usually won.
When eating meat, you kill one cow for many meals, when eating lettuce the farmer has killed many critters for each meal.
