Most vegetarians or vegans think that their lifestyle does not involve the killing or cruelty towards non-human animals. However the truth is that animals are killed in the production of plants. By some estimates, at least 300 animals per acre???including mice, rats, moles, groundhogs and birds???are killed for the production of vegetable and grain foods, often in gruesome ways.
Is there any video that clearly shows this?. I wish there was. Most vegetarians like to show omnivores "Meet your meat" like videos to prove that meat-eating is unethical.

I only have the n=1 memory of grandpa's dog killing field mice in freshly cut hay. That dog alone was good for probably a dozen dead mice per acre. All for sport. The dog had no feeeelings.
She also had no interest in vegetables. She was just living a farm dog's life, doing what a dog does. Vegans miss the analogy to humans. Like any other human activity, farming kills animals. Next time you see one of their cat vivisection pictures, visualize it as a fair vegan punishment to an animal that killed other animals. That's what they'd like to do to you.
