I have only been a vegetarian for 2 weeks. I have learned more about animals rights in the last 2 weeks than I have in my entire lifetime. I have been searching the web for anything I could find out. At first I thought that here in the U.S. the main problems were factory farms and the occasional abusive pet owner. Boy, did I have my eyes opened. I found out that some people here in America actually eat dog and cat meat!! In fact the slaughter and sale of dogs cats or other animals considered companians is prohibited only in 7 states! I am too shocked for words. What other hellish things am I going to find out now that I am a vegetarian?
