Two out of three vegetarians eventually resume eating meat. The reason my ex-vegetarian nephew, a New York City fireman, reverted back to meat was unique. Here is his story---and the reason I could not tell it in my book.
My initial thought was that having a coyote in the woods behind my house was pretty cool. (Well, maybe not as exciting when a black bear ran through the back yard during our twins' eleventh birthday party, but close.)
The good news is that regular walking on a leash can prevent shelter dogs from being euthanized. The bad news is that even leashed dogs make wild birds permanently flee their homes.
