If YOU feel that way, if you're a hunter or the child of one, who
routinely kills and dresses game, or you're a farmer or farmer's child
where such is routine, then there is nothing wrong.
However, to hold a BBQ, and when an 11 year old boy shows up, to tell
him to go kill and dress that chicken for his dinner seems quite out of
line. I could see him leaving and not coming back, and I could fully
understand that. I probably would myself.
