Fewer animals killed as Britain continues to go veggie

Arkangel for Animal Liberation
May 2007

Fewer chickens, turkeys and pigs are being killed for meat in the UK
and the drop is significant according to the government's latest
agricultural figures produced by Defra.

Vegetarian campaigns group Viva maintains that despite publicity
claiming that people are forsaking vegetarianism the opposite is true
and that an increasing number of Brits are embracing a kinder,
healthier lifestyle.

"It's great news that so many people are going veggie!" says Viva!
Campaigns manager, Justin Kerswell. "Almost a billion animals are still
killed for meat each year in the UK, most of them living appallingly
short lives in squalid conditions and facing a terrifying death so we
clearly have a long way to go but we are winning. Concerns about
animal cruelty, health and the state of the planet are growing daily
and vegetarianism provides a solution to all of them. It's needed like
never before."
