Los Angeles Wants To Put Its Shelter Animals On An All-Vegan Diet

A group of activists, led by electronic music star-turned-professional environmentalist Moby, are trying to convince the Los Angeles City Board of Animal Services Commissioners to turn all of their shelter dogs vegan, replacing their regular dog kibble — which contains turkey, chicken, and lamb — with a “plant-based” formula.

The idea is the brainchild of Commissioner Roger Wolfson, who claims that he’s “researched” vegan diets for animals and that restricting dogs and cats to consuming only plant-based material “eliminates” certain behavioral and digestive issues.
