Thank you for your note.
You said that killing animals for sport or just abusing them is wrong. We agree, and since 95% or more of all animal products come from abused animals, how can we justify eating them?
Theologically we obviously do differ; but I would like you to consider that in Eden, before the fall, there was no death or eating of animals, and neither is there in heaven, and Isaiah paints us a picture of the Peaceable Kingdom (Isaiah 11:6-9) where there is no death or killing. Everything in between is because of the corruption of the earth; thus, the eating of flesh was granted by God as a concession to evil humankind.
