We have this choice here, clearly it is a choice.
 
We can spare the life of the weaker (such as the frog), we can even care for them, we can help their living conditions, we could, in the case of the frog, create a little water pond, we could take the frog to a lake, we could literally be GOD for the frog.
We could be the FROG's GOD!
We can offer a paradise for the frogs!
 
Yet we could also be the opposite, we have that amazing power to create hell for the frog, we can boil it alive, we can skin it alive, we can eat it alive, we can tear its legs apart while alive, we can torture the frog just for "fun".
We don't need to believe in hell, we actually have the power to create it, so that is how to proof hell if needs be.
Thus we could be the FROG's SATAN!
We could enforce a hell for the frogs!
 
Regardless of karma.
Let's forget karma for a minute.
Let's forget rebirth even.
Let's just see this with ethics.
Choice #1 alleviate the suffering of another being, choice #2 creates more sufferings, much more for another being.
So what is the ethical choice to make?

Hope Rainbow, it is interesting what you say, we can remove the prism of karma and rebirth and, still, this is simply atrocious!
Perhaps this is also a way to campaign to stop these tortures!
 
From WIKIPEDIA: etchics
Ethics, also known as moral philosophy, is a branch of philosophy that involves systematizing, defending and recommending concepts of right and wrong conduct.
The term comes from the Greek word ethos, which means "character".
 
So what is right and what is wrong?
Is it right to torture an octopus by roasting it alive? Or is it wrong?
 
I’d simply cry if I was to hear arguments from people that dare to defend the righteousness of roasting an octopus alive... I have tears in my eyes just thinking about it...
This is unbearable to imagine actually!

For sure this will not go down well to the social activists working on how to save animals from being treated. Instead of being loved and cared for, they were treated as slaves, food and a form of entertainment. I especially hate going to circuses watching how animals performing. In front of the crowd, there are good shows and thrilling performances for the spectators but what happens behind the scene would make one go beserk if they are the ones in the receiving end.

What a nauseating sight!!!!the cruel act upon animals and helpless creatures are unforgiveable.Animal abuse is not just a minor personality flaw in the abuser- it is a deep mental disturbance.A study conducted by Northeastern University and the Massachusetts SPCA found that people who abuse animals are five times more likely to commit violent crimes against humans......Om Mani Padme Hum- Practice Compassion

Eating animals is bad enough but eating them while they are alive is beyond cruel. This should be banned. People tend to be denial that animals have emotions as well. Imagine someone does the same to you? Imagine the suffering you experience from the inhumane torture?

The negative karma created from inflicting so much pain before killing the sentient being is tremendous.

There are other animals/seafood served "live" and it seems that such meals are considered "delicacy".

I found the following on .. http://listverse.com/2013/03/06/10-animals-that-people-eat-alive/

* Oyster



(( ... because most people who eat oysters don’t even realize that they’re alive at the time ))


* ying yang yu is completely deep fried, except for the still-attached head


* ikizukuri means “prepared alive”, and is a fish dish.

When the fish is selected, the chef will gut it and serve it almost immediately. What sets it apart from other entries in this list is that the point of ikizukuri is for the chef to slice off a few pieces of fish, but leave the whole thing largely intact. Not only that, but the bits that are cut off are to be done in such a way that the person eating it can see the fish’s heart beating and mouth moving while they eat it.

Between being the executioner or the victim, the wise would be the victim.
The compassionate victim would pray for his executioner with compassionate love.
And the skillful victim may be able to stop the executioner before he would seal his action and the karma attached to it.
The wise, compassionate and skillful victim is best equipped.

The physical pain remains though, it remains, the aggregates are there!
Pain is pain!

May the universe be free from executioners and from victims.

Without thinking of the karmic consequences, their actions will lead them to unfavorable rebirth ( lower realm - animal or hell).  Sadly, these people only live for this life!

This is just extremely downright cruel. How can someone watch a frog being practically skinned alive while waiting to savour it. If animals die because of natural reason. let them be....Treat animals as you would human beings - with the same right to live.
