Hey - I am an 18yo girl from the UK who answers to B or Buns
I am slowly coming around to the rights and wrongs of animal rights - I have in the past been the victim of violence from animal rights protestors - but I have come to see that in a new light... it is not animal rights prosters alone who are violent.
I am pro hunting in the UK, and do follow hounds, and I have also been and enjoyed rough game shooting (which is NOT when they raise thousands of birds - they have 10 guns and rear 50 odd birds in the natural habitat - most of which who remain free!).
However - I am a part time vegetarian (I fell anaemic and then very ill last year and have been banned from being vegetarian under my mums roof - but as soon as I can be, I will be veggie again
) who is applying to study a course in agriculutre for uni.
I don't mind farming - as I don't believe all killing is wrong (in case you hadn't picked that up) - but I have grown to dispise the whole farming process - I want to be able to farm and eat my own animals or their products - and I figured the best way to ensure their welfare was to train as a proffessional farmer. I reckon I may end up staying veggie with a large number of pets though
A few years back I trained as a Marine Mammal Rescuer, but I never got to take part in any rescues. Renewing my training is something I intend to do in the future.
I have worked at Wildlife Aid, the sanctuary which stars in Wildlife SOS and at varius veterinary surgeries.
I believe in medical testing on animals, and have also worked in a medical lab as part of my wanting to be a vet, however don't get me started on cosemetic testing...
I am allergic to a whole ton of cosemetics so am always on the lookout for something that I can use for washing or makeup without causing an allergic reaction, and without needing to rely on a set few products which were tested on animals
I think thats just about everything... I have a bit of a rebellious streak and at some point I'd like to spend some time activly protesting and helping animals cos I only have this one life, so I may as well do something useful with it.
Yeah, welcome to me
