I challenge anyone who thinks the rabbit Montgomery is enjoying a “happy healthy life” to spend 10 minutes barefoot, standing on a plastic crate. Try it, Terri no last name.Anyone interested in eating a “sustainable diet” should know the facts.There are 4 things a person can do to eat a sustainable diet. They are, in order of importance:1. To eat low on the food chain. (Go veg!) This is by far the most important thing a person can do for the environment.2. To eat organic foods.3. To eat foods that are in season.4. To eat local produce.For more information on how our food choices effect the environment, visit http://goveg.org/environment-globalWarming.aspConcerning the humane -meat -myth, award winning cookbook author Colleen Patrick Goudreau puts it best:“When we tell ourselves we’re eating meat from ‘humanely raised animals’, we’re leaving out a huge part of the equation.The slaughtering of an animal is a bloody and violent act, and death does not come easy for those who want to live.Every animal born into this world for his or her flesh, (or eggs or milk) - only to be killed for human pleasure - has the same desire for maternal comfort and protection, the same ability to feel pain, and the same impulse to live as any living creature.There’s nothing humane about breeding animals only to kill them.There’s nothing humane about ending the life of a healthy animal in his or her youth.There is nothing humane about eating meat.” These “respected” babies do not care that they were prayed over before they were betrayed and slaughtered.How disappointing it is that a paper like The Islander would encourage such blatant cruelty.
