Red blooded

Written by  The Hound

OPINION: Your canine crusader had a good old giggle over the reaction to a recent survey, which found that more than 70% of men in Australia say they'd rather cut their life expectancy by up to 10 years than ditch meat.

The survey, commissioned by No Meat May, also found that 47% of Aussie blokes saw eating meat as a 'masculine undertaking'.

While 81% of participants said they care about the environment, 79% said they wouldn't give up meat to help the planet.

These results - predictably - upset the sickly, woke, vegan co-founder of No Meat May, Ryan Alexander, who described the survey as "alarming".

"It shows Australian men are either not aware of any of these faces, don't believe them, or simply don't care," Alexander whined.

Meanwhile, this old mutt hopes that Kiwi men are as red blooded as their Australian counterparts.
