Appeal to Nature Fallacy (Lions Tho)

You used an appeal to nature fallacy to defend the exploitation of animals.

This is the fallacy that ‘because something happens in nature it is justifiable, acceptable, or morally correct.’ This is most commonly manifested in statements like, “Well lions kill animals so why can’t I?” In the same way it is not okay to commit infanticide (killing babies) which a common occurance in the wild, it is not okay to harm animals because it happens in nature. This is as simple as how many other actions that occur in nature are widely unacceptable such as rape, murder, and incest. If we all modeled our ethics off of predators our society would likely collapse.
