As a vegetarian and someone who cares for animals, I always concerned about the alarming amount of animals that are consumed by humans every day. I'm not a crazy in-your-face vegetarian where I ask everyone in the world to stop now and become vegetarian, but I do have morals that relate to the treatment of animals. 

A recent protest carried out over in Australia, which although I do not condone, I believe agree partially with what I think. The protest involved them barbecuing a dog on the street and asking "if you wouldn't eat a dog, why eat a lamb?" which in my personal opinion is the reason to switch to vegetarian. I asked myself this question when I ate meat, why do some rabbits deserve to be eaten whilst others do not and get kept as pets? (I had at the time and still have pet rabbits). 

Anyway, there was one thing that was said that stuck out from all the rest:

As humans, we instinctively feel compassion and empathy for animals, but we’re taught that it’s OK to enslave and eat some of them, without a second thought as to who they are as individuals.
