Also in the Vegetarian Times are ads for vegetarian pet foods and treats. This is just wrong on so many levels. Hmm. The African wild hunting dog (Lycaon pictus) eats only meat. These dogs live in packs averaging seven to fifteen members which hunt in ranges from 200 to 2,000 square kilometers.
Let's see. So it's wrong to kill an animal and eat it. But it's OK to enslave the animal for your own emotional needs, keeping it away from its fellows, reducing its living space to a miniscule fraction of what is natural and completely destroying its natural diet.
I don't get it. If it is wrong to eat animals, it is also wrong to keep them as pets.
