Have any of you ever accidentally killed a bug or spider or another small animal? How did you feel? Posted on August 24, 2022 by Anonymous Have any of you ever accidentally killed a bug or spider or another small animal? How did you feel?
If I kill an animal it was either
1) An accident: in which I don't feel bad.
2) Self defense: in which I don't feel bad.
3) They Violated the NAP: in which I don't feel bad.

Terrible. I still do. Reminds me that I ran into a dead and completely flattened garter snake in the road today. Looks like the little guy had been there for quite a while, kind of a sad and wistful thing. Dunno if anyone else noticed, but at least one person in the world acknowledged it and felt bad for them.
I don't care much for killing mosquitos, since it's more a fair game - they attack me and I defend. But I try to avoid killing even things like bugs and snails if they don't bother me.
I've accidentally killed a few lizards as a kid when catching them, still feel bad to this day. Mosquitoes on the other hand I feel nothing for. They have no soul and will bite you/ something you DEFINITELY like more than the mosquito itself.
I kill lanternflies because they’re an invasive species where I am
same. they are kinda pretty though...
I haven't seen any in my area since they first came to burgerland, but whenever I go to my car place 25min away they're fucking all over, I see at least a half dozen every visit
I had to kill a giant bee yesterday because it's wing was messed up so it couldn't fly, I crushed it as quickly and completely I could
sorry Mr bee 🙁
Yeah. And I felt terrible.

I felt like I killed one of my own family. I still think about it to this day. I hope the lizard gods have forgiven me by then
I feel you so much, anon.. It'll be okay. At least it was quick.
I blindly stepped on a centi/milli/fuckipede or whatever it is once or twice. The brown crawly ones with the big whiskers. I hate those things so much.
I understand killing centipedes because their bite hurts like hell but millipedes are only dangerous when eaten and are bros.
accidentally killed a frog by shutting a door on it
When I was a kid I jumped towards a chicken just trying to scare it. Instead of running away it ran under me and I accidentally stomped it dead.
I aimed a blow dryer at a spider and it immediately shriveled up and died.
I was just expecting it to run away and I felt bad.
I have always had a rule to kill spiders in my house since I consider them a threat. However, I love jumping spiders. One day a Jumping spider walked out on the work space in front of me and looked up. It raised a leg and cocked it's head. I smashed it. Honestly, that was years ago and it's one of my biggest regrets in life.
All the other countless insects I've slaughter don't mean shit but that damn jumping spider was a sin to kill. I know it. I haven't touched one since.
I was walking along and saw a lil frog in my way. I tried to walk around him but he jumped right under my foot. I felt terrible about it and after reflecting on what I did wrong, I came to the conclusion that avoiding stepping on something much smaller than you is something only a human would do, so by acting in an unexpected way I might as well have purposely killed it.
I have since stopped looking at the ground while I walk. I assume I haven't stepped on any more frogs, but I have no way of really knowing now.
I had a frog jump into my bike gears once, no clue how. I got home and noticed it hanging by it's mangled leg in my derailuer. I didn't want to touch it because it was icky, so I rode up and down the street shifting gears until it's leg finally ripped all the way off. Then I circled back and ran over it. It was very gruesome and I didn't like it, didn't feel that guilty about it though.
Yes, just the other day

S-sorry spider bro, never meant for this to happen. Wrong place at the wrong time.
Retarded 4 year old me put a little lizard I caught into a bucket to observe, but it started to rain, so I went inside.. I'm so sorry, little one.
the bucket filled and it got out.
I know, because I am that lizard.
Just know I never blamed you friend.
Hope you're well. Take care.
I ran over an opossum once, felt bad about it for a week.
I was walking a home a few days ago around 2 AM on a dark road, and accidentally stepped on a toad. I feel horrible about it. They're my favorite animal.
What is it with Wauf and amphibians?
Ancient frog diety that has soul contracts with many anons
I just think they're really interesting and adorable.
I keep spiders, they're nice for getting rid of smaller pests. A little web in a corner is a small price to pay for less flies/etc. bothering you
Only kill them if they're massive/identifiable as something that could kill me. I was able to safely get one out the other day by using a discarded web in a paper towel: it got him stuck, then i shook it out outside so he could escape. House centipedes though, I kill w/o mercy, they move so erratically I couldn't rehome them if i wanted and they unsettle me, lots of awful experiences especially with the larger ones
I'm sure he frogives you, anon. You didn't mean any harm
I don't kill jumping spiders but I kill all the other ones in my house. I don't kill centipedes though. They do the same thing but don't make webs. Centipedes are total bros.
Cut a worm snake in half with a shovel once while planting shrubs for my grandparents. It didnt die immediately, I really felt like a hit and had to crush its head to end its suffering
*felt like shit
Yeah, I kill lots of wasps, mosquitoes, flies, craneflies and spiders. Why?
>wasps, craneflies and spiders
>walk somewhere at night after it's been raining
>*crunch* *crunch* *crunch*
I don't mean to be a one man snail holocaust but these dumb fucks just love to hang out on the pavement despite being completely invisible.
yeah a few weeks ago i was trying to untangle a wasp from a spiderweb on my porch, i shake like im holding a shake weight sometimes and i happened to jerk and smashed it with the back of my hand. almost felt like i had punched someones baby, emotionally speaking i guess.
I used to go out of my way to crush snails as a kid every time I saw one. I felt guilty every time too, but for some reason I kept doing it.
Yes, I used to kill ladybugs sometimes by mistake as a kid and also moths and butterflies when I didn’t realize that just catching and touching the powder on their wings kills them, very sad.
This too, it was just kinda fun but I did feel bad after
Yes, it felt bad
I don't feel bad over killing stuff like mosquitoes, flies, and earwigs. I'm sure they would do the same in my position. I do feel bad when I accidentally kill any critter minding their own business such as stepping on a snail or something.
How do you accidentally kill a fly?
Why earwigs? They're completely harmless.
I massacred and tortured ants as a child. Sometimes I would try to "teach them to scuba dive" by drowning them in a small container of water.
In kindergarten I defended multiple ant colonies from toddlers even getting physical, those kids were creeps and deserved to get beatdown for trying to pick on small beasties.
Ye I meant 5-6 years of age, its not my first language but there were 4 year old kids too, it was pre-kindergarten and kindergarten mixed class.
Anyway, fuck those who hurt small tiny ants in their natural environment, what kinda psycho shit is that.
I remember using fly spray on a giant ant nest 20 or so years ago because I was "curious". Still feel like shit about it. They're also one of the most chill species.
Aside from any mosquito that lands on me, I hate killing anything now (maybe an annoying fly inside the house that won't piss off). I go out of my way to avoid stepping on any insect. Refuse to even harm dangerous spiders like redbacks.
i feel bad for killing everything
y-you mean anything right?
I killed plenty of flies and mosquitos. Zero regrets.
