Well. This thread led me to read this, and now I am in a bad place
According to researchers at the Institute for Applied Physics at the University of Bonn in Germany, plants release gases that are the equivalent of crying out in pain. Using a laser-powered microphone, researchers have picked up sound waves produced by plants releasing gases when cut or injured. Although not audible to the human ear, the secret voices of plants have revealed that cucumbers scream when they are sick, and flowers whine when their leaves are cut [source: Deutsche Welle].
There's also evidence that plants can hear themselves being eaten. Researchers at the University of Missouri-Columbia found that plants understand and respond to chewing sounds made by caterpillars that are dining on them. As soon as the plants hear the noises, they respond with several defense mechanisms [source: Feinberg].
Vegans should feel bad about themselves for preying on the absolute defenseless. At least cows and chickens can move, and try to fight back when they feel threatened.
After reading this post, I can longer bring myself to eat anything unless I've given it a fair chance to defend itself in the ring.
I had a pet Alligator. They make's for some good eatens.
Out of curiosity, I would have to try that
If you go with me to the Everglades in South Florida I know a restaurant that makes the sweetest Gator tail nugget's and the salsa is delishimo😋.
