Quote:
When vegan protesters gathered outside Toronto’s Antler Kitchen & Bar on Friday with a banner reading “Murderer” and chants of “you’ve got blood on your hands,” the owner responded by carving a deer leg inside the front window of his restaurant.

The Globe & Mail reports chef and owner Michael Hunter—seriously his name—felt he had to respond to the protesters, who’d shown up at his restaurant a few times before.

“They’re offending us; I’m going to offend them,” he told Globe & Mail. “So I went and got a deer leg.”

Hunter is himself a hunter, but he doesn’t personally kill the wild game he uses at his restaurant. He’s known for making the most of the animal—using as much of it as possible to make terrines, charcuterie, etc.—but won’t apologize for eating and serving meat. Antler does also serve vegetarian dishes, some of it made from foraged ingredients.

According to CTV News, protesters were stunned when Hunter brought out the deer leg.

“We were in shock,” Mari Ugar, an organizer of the protest, told CTV News. “It’s just an animal, and we felt sad. For me, I felt sad for a few days after seeing that.”

Ugar said she became familiar with Antler in December when she noticed a sandwich-board sign outside the restaurant reading: “Venison is the new kale.” She read up on Antler and took issue with the restaurant’s use of the term wild game and the fact that it serves foie gras, which she says is unethical. She decided to create Friday’s protest, obviously not expecting the deer leg carving.

Half an hour after Hunter took the deer back to the kitchen, Ugar told CTV News, he returned to the table and ate a plate of it in front of protesters.

They’ll probably resort to either fire bombing the restaurant or worse, leaving bad reviews on trip advisor.

Bang on. We are back to "hurty feelings" being an actual thing that we should care about.

He should start serving traditional stuff like sheep's head, pig's face, trotters, haggis, other types of offal. Some people love such stuff.

As in butchered or carved after roasting. I once did an outdoorsy ray mears type thing on a stag do where we successfully butchered an entire roe deer mostly just using our hands. Pretty handy skill as it turns out.

No knives, sharp stones, sticks etc. ? Wow.

Did that with a few birds, in the veld, but never something as large as a deer.

In cadets we caught some rabbits and I was chief animal chopper upper on account of not being sqeumish - but when we ate it, dear god it was rank. I find rabbbit and hare utterly disgusting, like cheesy gone off chicken .

There was this trick I’ve forgotten what the adult sgt showed us but it’s basically make a couple of cuts then pull down hard and hey presto, one skinned rabbit . He could prepare the animal in about two mins flat, entrails and all.

You can squeeze down the ribs, pushing the guts down, then swing the rabbit like a baseball bat, and the guts shoot right out. It's quite a sight.

Usually bad reviews from vegans are the sign of a good restaurant.

I have no issue with vegans. Essentially they are putting the wellbeing of animals above their desire for something nice on their tastebuds.

I don't think that is a weird or crazy attitude to have.

My wife is vegan and I enjoy quite a lot of the food - so it isn't a big deal for me.

Most vegans are pretty decent and although they're happy to explain their reasons for turning away from meat and animal products, they have good awareness that not everyone agrees with them.

And yes - most of them are aware that they are pains in the arse when attending meals out or dinner parties.

But it is the few loud voices of completely unreasonable militant vegans that turn more people away from the ideal than anything else. Completely unaware that they create such a toxic attitude that most people that come into contact with them immediately become opposed to the idea of veganism - simply because they don't want to be associated with plums like them.

Long happy life + painless death = not a big deal ethically for me. Would be happy to eat lab-grown meat in a future where we can replicate natural meat though. For me factory farming is worse than the actual death of the animal, assuming it is done as instantaneously as possible.

Couldn't see myself going vegetarian/vegan though, meat brings me too much joy in life.

Thought he was a vegetarian who did not drink alcohol ... Wiki says otherwise.

Quote:
Hitler was often distressed by images of animal cruelty and suffering, and was an antivivisectionist.


More, gainsaying that :


Quote:
On 12 January 1942, he said, "The only thing of which I shall be incapable is to share the sheiks' mutton with them. I'm a vegetarian, and they must spare me from their meat."[5] In a diary entry dated 26 April 1942, Joseph Goebbels described Hitler as a committed vegetarian, writing,

An extended chapter of our talk was devoted by the Führer to the vegetarian question. He believes more than ever that meat-eating is harmful to humanity. Of course he knows that during the war we cannot completely upset our food system. After the war, however, he intends to tackle this problem also. Maybe he is right. Certainly the arguments that he adduces in favor of his standpoint are very compelling.[6]

Dunno. I am a committed carnivore. But, due to some problems swallowing I am more and more dependant on a vegetarian diet.

Mushrooms helps a bit, but I miss meat ...

Good reason to support ethical farming though. Not so much with the long happy life in some of those factory farms.

I hit a deer once. It bounced off the windscreen having dented the front end.

It flew into the air and landed on the road.

I'm not one to waste meat. So I reversed the car and bunged it in the boot and took it to Bradshaws, the butchers.

I got free meat for a bit.

Good post.

I know a few vegans, and apart from being a little bit of a pain in the hole to cater for, they're nice peoples.

I always take my road kill to my local butcher for some freebies.

I traded a dead badger and myxomatosis rabbit for a scotch egg and a four slices of salami once.
