I adore all animals, wild life and ocassionally dressing up as a panda with wings. I've been a vegetarian for 8 years now. Though my mouth still waters when I smell a roast chicken (I'm not perfect!), after living next to a stock yard for a few months, I heard their echoing screams nightly. I went to visit them. Have you ever looked a cow eye in the eye and watched helpless as they cry with misery? It made me rethink my need to consume these doe eyed creatures or any other animal. Pass the tofu!
