Good news from PETA – seal-hunting season has come to a close, and while sadly some poor animals were still brutally slaughtered, 3/4 of the seals intended to be killed were actually spared.
That’s a fantastic improvement, but still not quite enough. Thanks to the EU and the US banning seal products, the demand has fallen dramatically. Sometimes the most effective way to effect change is by hitting these people where it hurts – in the pocket.
I really can’t bear animal cruelty, and it makes me annoyed at my own prevarication on committing to being a veggie. I only buy free range meat products now, but it’s still not enough. The fact that my little freezer is jam-packed with Quorn is a step in the right direction, but still not quite enough.
For health reasons, for my own moral reasons, I really think I have to do this once and for all. Goodbye, meat. The sweet hangover cure of a bacon sandwich isn’t worth this guilt.
