Our very own Joe Cabello made this cartoon for us!

With the recent murder of Cecil the Lion by a Minnesota dentist, people were justifiably outraged. But why does the killing of one lion stir so many emotions, yet our factory farming system doesn’t? I think it’s because it’s much easier to digest this isolated, heinous incident,while the atrocities that occur in factory farms across the United States are much harder to comprehend, and much easier to justify.

The point of the cartoon, however, is to show that if you truly care about the humane treatment of animals, like Cecil, your care doesn’t need to stop with him. There are daily changes people can make to their lives that can make a difference.

So, if Cecil’s killing made you mad, make this your first step toward a cleaner, more humane way of life: Go vegan.
