Letter from Rosie about Her Life-Changing Hunting Experience - 14 Nov 2010

I went out with my boyfriend hunting wild pig, after that, I have never eaten meat of any kind again.

I was 50 and all I can say is that I was shut off to the terrible things that we do to animals. The slaughter is so evil, and I always cry when I end up in traffic behind a cattle truck.

Jamie Oliver's programs a few years back also had a profound effect on me, a chicken looked up at the guy that was going to kill it and it made a noise, a beautiful liquid musical sound, I believe it was begging for its life. To kill it was monstrous, I have three roosters as pets, we are all very happy.

But I believe that these acts of murder are still carried out because we distance the meat from the animal, it seems on the supermarket shelf to come from somewhere else, not a living thing.

About this site God bless you for being so decent to animals and trying to stop the cruelty.
