      [ extruded soy, tempeh, tofu, seitan and other soy-products can be used as alternatives to meat. They taste equally if not better if marinated rightly. So sad how a narrative gets pushed all for the profit/out of ignorance.]

Most game animals are poisoned to death nowadays to protect crops, instead of being hunted & sold for meat, because no-one wants to eat deer, wild pig, kangaroo, moose etc. You should be able to easily source the first 3 of those anywhere you live in the world with a basic google search for "buy game meat"

But where i live the conditions for animals are so much in focus that they will revoke your right to own ANY animal for life if you are caught treating animals in a way thats seen as bad. To add to this most farms here have animals like sheep and cows in the forests or mountains for as much of the year as possible where they roam freely. The farm i grew up on would have produced less vegetables than meat in a year because of this. Great video tho, just thought id share some first hand experience

Many people simply do not understand this because they do not take the other side seriously. Snobbish vegans who think they are better than anyone who eats meat have made people have this negative view on vegans (other facts like jokes have helped too, but as far as I know that's the biggest reason) and the tired vegans have started also hating meat lovers, this aggravated the whole situation. Everyone is a person and we should never forget that if you eat meat you are not to blame for the suffering of billions of animals, but you have no right to mock the fellow who refuses to eat meat because of all this suffering.

At double our weight, that means the equivalent of us eating 200gms of meat per day, so quite a lot really for the relative that's considered to be the most herbivore. chimps eat FAR more meat & animal products than gorillas do

You are an ape and you need more vegetables than meet... Just one or two time per week. You can lives without meet, but not a lion. A lion can't eat vegetables, but you can.

The same reasons you just mentioned for not eating meat are used to not eat dairy products. I am a vegan, not a vegetarian.

I don't kill those animals for my food. And also by doing this I protect the Earth. Are you a vegetarian?
