    Though edible, elephants have a colossal number of parasites in their bodies that it would be a problem despite claims that they would all die when cooked.

      I remember the day i learned how most game meat animals have tons of shit in their skin and bodies that make a portion of what you kill inedible and then i never wanted to eat game meats again

          elephants have a colossal number of parasite sin their bodies in comparison to other animals that also have them, its their particular biology and lifestyle. They swim in mud, eat dirt for salt and other things. Also they eat various treets and other platns and some have substances that can harm even them. If a human eats them he may die or become paralyzed or some other malady. If it can affect an elephant at high dosage at low it will not show in the animal but will damage the human that ate it.

    Inefficient in terms of production.
    Pregnancy lasts a year, takes years to reach physical maturity.
    Uncooperative, would be hard to slaughter.
    Enormous mass means the carcass would be difficult to manipulate for butchering.
    High caloric intake and feed requirements makes them expensive to keep.
    Destructive and hard to contain.

        Why do you assume someone kept them as livestock at some point?
        Elephants and their relatives being hunted by humans until local extirpation is a common theme historically.

            You don't think someone in a position to do so would "allow" you to hunt a woolly mammoth if you brought them back and provided for a means of their continued existence?
            I can see exactly no one being interested in approving bringing back a few mammoths just to, you know, re-extinct them and get a trophy kill.

            But I'd bet that is asking too much for most people who'd be interested in hunting Mammoths for their unique carcass or the glory of the hunt.

            I'm curious as to why we still propagate the myth of mammoths in wintery habitats to this day. These things ate entire trees, leaves, bark and all. Yet they're always depicted as living on top of solid ice & snowy wastes for miles in every direction. Where did they find enough vegs to stay alive?

              Because we're moronic and since people associate mammoths with northern climates they just assume that the north has always been in a glacial period. If you wanted a more accurate winter hunting scene they should show paleolithic hunters ambushing hibernating cave bear

            I heard somewhere that this is all dumb bullshit and a spear wouldn't even penetrate elephant skin well. If we ever hunted them it was running them off cliffs, dropping shit in them, or most likely just chasing them and being annoying for a million miles until they fell the frick over. That doesn't look cool at a museum or in a book tho.

    They have. The French were forced to eat zoo animals during the Franco Prussian War.

      cat meat is pretty common in vietnam, it's not that good. similar to rabbit
      penguin is apparently similar to puffin which you can eat in iceland and faroe islands, it's not very good. imagine cornish game hen or sparrow that tasted Extremely strongly of fish. koala and bear wouldn't be good at all, too gamey. a lion would be tough.

    >killing elephants
    Chink-tier behaviour. Elephants are more intelligent than dogs, recognise themselves in a mirror and mourn for dead companions.
    They're generally not aggressive to humans, but have been known to attack villages after an elephant culling, suggesting they might even be smart enough to coordinate a reprisal attack.
    If they do cause trouble you can plant ghost peppers around your land. Their massive noses will pick up the smell and they don't like it.

    Logistics aside, and more on the Culinaly part of things: I wouldn't eat elephant meat because I learned that they have capacity for empathy and emotion. That's the same reason I don't eat dog meat. This is my anecdotal answer, because there are obviously cultures which would eat dog meat.

          So you just think pigs and cows are brainless husks or what? To be clear, I'm not against eating meat as it composes the vast majority of my diet. I just think people who deny the sentience of "lesser" animals are willfully ignorant weaklingswho can't face reality and have to lie to themselves.

              It's all anecdotal, even with dogs and elephants. It's just that when you've already decided not to eat a particular animal (dogs) or you have no access to its meat (elephants) it's much easier to accept those anecdotes and prop them up as a reason for not eating those animals. But when someone is confronted with an equal amount of evidence for the intelligence and emotional capacity of an animal they like to eat (cows and pigs) suddenly it's insufficient, all anecdotal, not worth considering, because it's much harder to accept that an animal whose meat you enjoy and rely on is just as intelligent and emotionally capable as the animals you say you choose not to eat for those reasons.
              Again, not even saying you shouldn't eat meat, just saying the whole "I don't eat dogs or elephants because they're too smart and emotional" thing is virtue signaling nonsense.
