Just like the eagle in James Aggrey's famous story who was raised as a chicken but ultimately flew high into the sky when prompted by a naturalist, a purported "vegetarian" dog ended up eating meat on national television, just minutes after her owner steadfastly claimed that she prefers eating vegetables.
According to Metro, U.K. woman Lucy Carrington switched her female husky, Storm, to a meat-free diet earlier this summer after she started to tire of her previous diet. As Carrington was of the belief that Storm wanted to go vegetarian, she began to serve the animal meatless dog food and leftover vegetables instead of her usual meals.
Much as Carrington insisted to This Morning host Eamonn Holmes that Storm had become a vegetarian dog, the animal almost instantly walked toward a bowl of meat and began eating, and as Metro noted, didn't pay much attention to a nearby bowl of carrots and peas.
"Oh, you little. I didn't swear. In fairness the weather has cooled down quite dramatically," said Carrington after she was surprised to see Storm eagerly consume the bowl of meat while ignoring the vegetables.
"During the summer months, she just went off her food, strangely. I'm certainly not one of those, I'm not [a] vegetarian. I'm not a vegan, far from it, though I've reduced my meat consumption."
