School targeted by animal rights activists after vegan parents criticise decade-long pig rearing project

Ed the vegan parent proves meat is necessary to maintain proper brain function.

A rural secondary school was targeted by animal rights activists after a newly vegan parent raised concerns about a pig rearing project.

Priestlands School, in Lymington, Hants, had allowed four female piglets due to be sent to the slaughterhouse next month to be cared for by pupils since their birth.

Their meat would then have been served in the canteen and sold back to the school to teach children about the food chain.
