From Hunter to Activist with Chris the Vegan Sheepdog

Whether for health reasons, the environment, or animal welfare, more and more people are going vegan every day. In less than 10 years there has been a 500% increase in the amount of U.S. consumers that identify as vegan (1% in 2014 to 6% in 2022).

For some of us it might not be as big of a shock to turn vegan, but what about for a man who was once a hunter? On this episode we chat with Chris aka The Vegan Sheepdog who went from life long deer hunter to animal activist. We discuss his transition and how a special cow helped open his eyes to the uncomfortable truth that was sitting on his plate.

Chris is now passionate about rescuing animals, spreading awareness about animal agriculture, and veganism.
