If we had a dime for every time someone said to us, “OK, I get that you’re vegans, but what about bugs?” we’d have, like, a lot of dimes. It’s true that bugs and even mice and other wildlife can be a nuisance sometimes, especially when they find their way into our homes, but it’s important to remember that this is their world, too.
Like all animals, wild animals suffer when they’re poisoned, trapped and left to die, or even needlessly killed by hunters. I mean, c’mon—chasing defenseless animals around in the woods just so that you can shoot them and mount their heads on the wall is extremely cruel. Can you imagine how scary that is for the animals?
Wild animals are all around us, and we should always be careful not to disturb or harm them in any way.
Ants have been around for more than 100 million years and can carry five to 20 times their bodyweight!
