Letter from Mandy Marshall about Cruelty to Animals and Not Eating Them - 27 Jan 2008

I just wanted to let you know that I really appreciate what you have done. I stumbled across your site, whilst searching for pictures of rabbits as I am fascinated by rabbits, and enjoy painting them.

I was completely horrified, and enraged at the information I read about the cruelty rabbits have to endure. the pain they go through just to try to survive.

I made the decision about 5 years ago to become a vegetarian. I did it as a quick decision thing, but the more I stayed away from meat, the more I found out about the horrible dark truth behind it.  It's sick and so sad, and it's as though there is a curtain pulled over the public's eyes. It's just so sad that such horrific, ungodly, truly terrible things happen to animals at the hands of humans, and this reality is covered in gravy and served on a plate in the living rooms of millions and millions of people across the world.

One person once asked me "oh but how could you not eat meat? I love meat, I'd simply die if I didn't eat meat." How ironic!

Anyways I would love to distribute stickers and/or flyers at my varsity campus. I have a small group of vegetarian friends that share the same compassion about animals as I do. I've searched for a company that distributes free vegetarian/vegan info to hand out. Do you know of a place that distributes this to South Africa?

Let's promote peaceful eating!
