i’ve actually been holding this post for awhile. mainly because i don’t like to get into people’s personal choices about what they eat (and also because my boyfriend is a huge fan of bacon). but i read this article in the new york times last month and i can’t get it out of my head. there is a lot of documented evidence that pigs are as smart/smarter than dogs. and like i said, i understand that people eat meat. i don’t stand in judgment of that. but if you are dealing with a creature who is able to problem solve and do many of the things pigs are capable of doing, then at minimum – please only eat free range pigs – if their lives are going to be sacrificed for your BLT, then at least let it be a pleasant life.
it’s just food for thought.
