What is Lamb?

“The Truth I Knew But Didn’t Want to Think About.”

I’ve been vegetarian for eight years, now, but before that I ate lamb from time to time—and enjoyed it.

Only recently did I get it through my thick head that lamb isn’t sheep—it’s baby sheep, and these babies live lives of confinement, pain, even torture—their legs tied up so they can’t move and their muscles don’t develop (making the meat softer, more yummy).

So, if we’re going to eat sheep, don’t. If we’re still going to eat sheep, buy humane—the difference in conditions for these babies is like night and day.
