Re: “A butcher meets his meat

To say this was done for nourishment is a stretch. It was done for pleasure. The fact that the food may have nourished in some sense is incidental. There is a ton of info out there about how unhealthy meat from pigs is, just compared to other animals. I appreciate that this pig suffered less in life than many, but pigs are so intelligent and capable of a huge depth of feeling. This pig suffered in the end. I don't need to feed on that suffering to thrive or even to please my palette. So I stay vegan.
