* Finally, predation can be [[PredationIsNatural treated as just a fact of life]]. See Creator/RudyardKipling's ''Literature/TheJungleBook'', the ''{{Dinotopia}}'' books, and the {{Webcomic}} ''Webcomic/KevinAndKell'', among a very, very few others: Carnivorism happens, it's nature, and it may even be incorporated as a part of both the talking animal economy and social structure.

* Hinduism also prescribes vegetarianism for similar reasons. Contrary to popular beliefs, cows are not "sacred", it is just considered wrong to eat the flesh of the one who gave you milk (as a mother). Some branches of Hinduism though allow you to eat animal meat if they are already dead and/or in the case of their being no other food sources at hand.

* The puppets of ''WebVideo/DontHugMeImScared'' are notably having a ''chicken'' picnic in the third video. Not only is one of the people eating it clearly a bird, but they are also eating it ''raw''.

* Buddhism considers all animal life form sentient, they refer to them as sentient beings, which is why some branches of Buddhism prescribe a Vegetarian diet. Most, nevertheless, do consider that even been sentient is still OK to eat them for survival or health reasons (but still not to do unnecesary harm). Some also allow to eat meat if you didn't kill the animal, as if the animal dies for natural causes or a non-Buddhist already kill it (the latter can be seen as a case of LoopholeAbuse, but the logic behind it is that the Karma for a Buddhist is worst for killing animals as the Buddhist knows better, whilst non-Buddhist can argue ignorance).

* In old (as in, 70s) McDonalds commercials, Ronald and his pals would often eat the living, talking hamburgers without any hesitation. (This sort of thing seemed to be ruled a little ''too'' creepy eventually, gotten rid of by the 80s.)

* Similar to the option immediately above, some works such as ''Literature/TheChroniclesOfNarnia'' and the ''Literature/{{Spellsinger}}'' novels make it clear that only some of the animals have human-like intelligence. In some fiction, there are explicit differences between the anthropomorphic and normal members of the same species -- bipedality, speech, clothing, etc. It's okay for a talking lion to eat a non-talking deer, but eating a talking deer would be tantamount to cannibalism, even for a human.

* Sometimes your heroes are predatory animals. Now carnivores are okay, so scavengers often become the [[VillainByDefault Villains By Default]]. The usual ethos is that only evil weirdos eat carrion, and only cowards do not hunt. They will be depicted as ugly and intimidating. Often the carnivorous heroes will [[ThePiratesWhoDontDoAnything never been seen actually killing and/or eating another animal.]] Example: ''Disney/TheLionKing''.[[note]]Non-exclusive scavenging and predation is rarely used in fiction. In RealLife, lions scavenge off hyena kill more often than vice versa.[[/note]]

* Dolphines are considered sentient for most scientists and they are hunted and ate in Japan, this is a polemic subject and a lot of people is against, precisely due to their intelligence. A former fisher turn opponent of the practice mentions that he [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kzGKPhdsWSIstops hunting them because he saw their behavior and how they cried]].
* Hunting of chimps for food was also a common practice in some African countries, untill was outlawed in most of them. The President of one of these countries even said that he considered it close to cannibalism.

* In Fanfic/RainbowDoubleDashsLunaverse, ponies can and occasionally do eat meat, though never from anything sapient. However, not all ponies really get the difference, and this has caused occasional friction between Trixie (whose hometown of Neigh Orleans has a much more meat-based cuisine than most regions of Equestria) and her friends.
