We are natural plant-eaters.
if you took a baby and put a bunny in front of him, and if you had a
cat and a bunny, the cat at any age would want to attack and kill the
bunny and the child would say, “Oh, look at the bunny!” So the idea that
we have some innate aggression towards animals…we don’t.
you open the mouth of a cat, a carnivore, you see that they have long
canines, way beyond the other teeth. If you open the mouth of a dog, you
see the same. If you open your mouth, you don’t. You have canines that
are the same length as your incisors. If you have long canine teeth, it
allows you to do two things: one, it allows you to snatch your prey. The
other thing it allows you to do is to pull away the hide. If a dog
happens to catch a rabbit or another animal, it can very easily remove
the hide. If a cat catches a squirrel, they have no trouble with that.
But if a person does that, they will work all day and all night to get
the skin off of an animal, because they don’t have long canine teeth
also don’t have claws. Plus we’re not fast. Plus we don’t have very
good vision, or good sense of smell. An owl is a predator and can detect
a mouse at a tremendous distance. Dogs have a sense of smell much
greater than ours and they’re much faster than we are. We have fairly
dull senses, fairly slow locomotion. In our Olympic trials, we celebrate
speeds that would be an embarrassment to a bird or a dog or another
have nothing to kill prey with and nothing to remove the hide with. So
the question is when did that change come? It’s something like 3.5
million years ago that we lost our long canine teeth. And most of the
great apes did, too—and they’re almost entirely vegetarian. Chimpanzees
will eat a little bit of meat. But, they never eat dairy products, and
no other animal would do that."
