Dog owners turning their pets vegan to reduce carbon footprint

The New Scientist shows the carbon footprint of a sports utility vehicle driven for 10,000 kilometres for a year is about less than half of a medium-sized dog like a labrador or a Golden Retriever.

Another study found dogs and cats in America eat about a third of the meat that humans do.

“They’re massive hypocrites.

“If you’re a greenie and you’re a dog lover you’re in trouble.

“You can’t have your puppy and save the world.”
