We Love ‘em to Death: The hypocrisy of ‘animal lovers’ who eat meat

Today’s ten highest grossing box office releases are about animals,
including: “Finding Dory,” “The Jungle Book,” “Zootopia,” “The Secret
Life of Pets,” and “Kung Fu Panda.” Nearly half of our households
include a dog and nearly 40 percent have a cat. Two thirds of us view
them as family members and cherish them accordingly. We love our animals
to death.
For every cat, dog, or other animal that we love and cherish, we put 500
through months of caging, crowding, deprivation, mutilation, and
starvation, before we take their very lives, cut their dead bodies into
little pieces, and shove those into our mouths. And that doesn’t even
include Dory and billions of her little friends, because we haven’t
figured out how to count individual aquatic animals that we grind up for
human or animal feed.
The good news is that we have a choice every time we visit a restaurant
or grocery store. We can choose live foods – yellow and green
vegetables, legumes, fruits, nuts, grains, as well as a rich variety of
grain and nut-based meats and dairy products. Or, we can choose dead
animals, their body parts, and other products of their abuse.
What will it be?
