Ah, cognitive dissonance at it’s finest.
This awesome comic from Vegan Sidekick illustrates our country’s cognitive dissonance when it comes to killing animals:
So funny how it changes based on the animal, especially when it’s pig versus dog. I went to Farm Sanctuary recently and hung out with some pigs and was shocked by how much they are like dogs. I knew they were smart, but they are also snuggly and love belly rubs and treats. The only difference between the two animals is our arbitrary determination that one is a pet and one is food.
