If you find eating horse horrifying, you should find eating cows equally so. There is nothing distinctly unique about horses that makes them more intelligent, emotional, capable of feeling pain and joy than a cow. Science has already shown that cows experience a-ha/eureka/joy moments, form strong friendships, even hold grudges.

This is all about human perception and cognitive dissonance. It’s yet another example of human arrogance and selfishness. To solve this conundrum – don’t eat animals, period.

Arrogance, selfishness, and sadly ignorance.
