There are so many questions you'll be asked once you go vegan - most of them ridiculous. Apparently, going vegan means you're instantly more likely to end up on a desert island and be faced with having to kill and eat something to survive. And yes - I would kick to death a Shetland pony if it was threatening me and my family and I'd exhausted all other options of compromise.

Animals of both sexes suffer under institutionalized exploitation.

I arrived in London on the Friday afternoon and caught up with one of Otto's dads. He filled me in on Otto's new routine, changes in Otto (Otto's got a bad eye, thanks to the mass of rumpled skin there. He's awaiting surgery). Otto's developed a new muscular physique.
