An encouraging story, some might think. Obviously, this brave rat was a vegan but died for its lifestyle

Question for any vegans on here from my 10 yr old son. If I'm correct in my thinking Vegans don't eat or use anything from animal products i.e. Milk or cheese, therefore do they use honey? If not do they eat any plants as most of them are pollinated by bees, or would they be looking for artificially pollinated fruit and veg?

They tend not to eat honey. The pollination question is always a tricky one for vegans too.

Whilst on the subject of vermin, I always wondered how ethical the pest control company, who had an advertising hoarding beside the pitch, might be. If my house, or indeed anyone else's, has an infestation of mice (mine currently doesn't) would they be captured and relocated to somewhere more suitable...rather than being despatched.

I think the vermin are humanely trapped then retrained in horticulture. Sort of harvest mice?

Thought honey was ok provided the worker bees are paid a living wage?

Vegans are allowed to do whatever they want.

They just refuse to wear leather and refuse to eat honey.

:lol: :lol:

The mice I catch are humanely recycled in my compost bin :oops: They are bad this year apparently, man at Hearns says hes been doing a roaring trade with traps. Theres the old never more than 6 foot from a rat story, cant see a measurement for mice.

squirrels when trapped cant be moved to another place without a licence , though it maybe different for mice as a native species.

Such a dumb question.
