It’s hard to understand why there’s such animosity between vegans and meat-eaters.

It’s the difference between two diets and it’s genuinely odd that some people from each faction hate each other so much.

You have one group who, let’s be honest, are doing the thing that benefits the environment the most but generally do have a pretty annoying attitude (in the minority but they shout the loudest). Conversely, you have the other people who just want to get on with their lives and enjoy a bit of hedonism in the short time they have on this earth.

It will never be clear, I guess, but one meat-eater took it way too far by eating a raw squirrel at a London vegan festival…

You couldn’t write it.

Pretty gross.

Where did he even get that squirrel? Was it one of those ones that climb up your leg at Hyde Park? That seems pretty cruel.

The man is reportedly YouTuber Sv3rige, although nothing has been confirmed. Police spoke to him before putting him in cuffs and conducting a search.

It’s not the first time this guy has caused a stir though, as he was previously seen eating a raw pig’s head in protest at a Brighton vegan festival.

He told Sky News:

We did it – it was eight of us – because veganism is malnutrition and you can’t get over 15 nutrients from plants and some of us are ex-vegans who got sick because of it.”

Eventually the police arrived and reportedly gave him and two other people a warning.

Tim Barford, Vegfest UK manager, told the Brighton and Hove Independent:

We knew about the planned protest and were expecting 30 protestors – three turned up, which was slightly sad for them and reminiscent of a Nigel Farage march.

But they proceeded to upset kids and members of the public, and with that in mind, the police arrived, gave them a warning and sent them packing.

He added:

What was interesting was that we had meat eating members of the public saying that this revolting spectacle had encouraged them to give up eating meat – so it seems the anti vegan protest actually encouraged people to go vegan.”

Nice work, Sv3rige.
