I've already seen this before, and I don't see the idea in it.
Webkinz can eat what they want, if they want to be 'cannibals' then so be it.
There actually ARE cannibals in the world. The Praying Mantis is one example, my pet hamster is another.
If you don't like this (I actually find it a bit comical, since it's not real life) then don't make your webkinz eat it. Or pretend it's not real meat. There isn't exactly much Ganz could do about this.
I agree completely. I mean, yes, it's strange, but it is virtual. And nobody can say Webkinz are real animals, they're Webkinz! I just find it more of the more....interesting parts of webkinz. My webkinz like choosing what they eat, and I think it would be even harder with 'menus' like people were talking about, that would cause some nasty glitches in the Wshop. And in real life, there is some pretty weird mystery meat in our hamburgers, so who says the cow is eating cow? Maybe it's just a brown substance. xD
And in the animal kingdom there are real 'cannibals.' For instance, birds of prey will eat smaller birds. Interesting, eh?
I think it's okay. You could use your imagination and think it's a veggie burger or made of tofu. I like how they make the PSF's out of the animals natural diet. It just looks better to have a lion PSF made of meat,because they're carnivores,versus having them eat a leafy salad.
However,with kids nowadays,it probably will freak them out and put the idea of Webkinz being cannibals in their minds.
I don't necessarily think they will make a change like that, although it is a very good point. However, I do think it would be a good idea for them to offer options like veggie burgers and tofu for people who do not consume meat. I think it would make them more comfortable and they would probably enjoy feeding their pets the way they choose to feed themselves (or are brought up being fed).
I don't see much wrong with this. If you think it's weird to have burgers, don't feed them to your cow, then. It's just made to seem like a selection of foods you'd see in a normal grocery store, and I think if you see it as cannibalism then you have the choice not to have your pets eat it. Also, if it's made vegetarion to fit the cow, then you've ruined it for the lion
