Why would someone torture their pet like that?
According to experts, most of the part of fennec’s diet is animals and insects, but the diet given by the owner of this fox was purely vegan. Wonder what effects this has had on the poor thing?
The owner says that Jumanji is already half blind, is suffering from impulsive disorders and skin issues. But she is still determined to treat her pet as she treats herself.
This is what she had to say on her Facebook page:
They use the word ‘abuse’ to describe the act of feeding [it] food that no animal had to die for. Despite the obvious oxymoron, any other non-vegan alternative DOES involve abuse by default.
Meet the woman behind this crazy idea. Raising her pet fox Jumanji on a vegan diet for years, this vegan blogger, Sonia Sae, thinks that all species are equal.
This woman on Facebook posted a message on this issue that made it viral on social media.
Blogger’s fox when she got it:
It started looking like this after a while due to improper diet.
In her post, Alice wrote why she shouldn’t feed her a vegan diet.
She kept posting photos of her pet just to let people know that she is so caring.
And then this…
She kind of ignored the people criticizing her.
What a proud owner, I must say.
With the passage of time, in her photos, she showed the world how vegan diet had made her pet pencil-thin.
Also, she had been uploading the pictures which clearly showed her that her skin was infected.
The food she gives her is not enough to meet the kind of protein and minerals her pet needs, like calcium and taurine. The only source of taurine is animal tissues (which you cannot find in a vegan diet!!!).
In case of malnutrition, they develop reproductive and heart problems along with other disorders.
In her defense though, this is what she had to say.
Somehow, the animal rights authorities got informed by someone concerned, and this was their reply to the situation.
