Saving animals is not enough (5)

What Tatjana had planned, she put into practice. It was so easy, much easier than she thought, to eat no animal products. The vegan community in particular was very supportive. Primarily when she was dealing with non-vegans, because that was one of the strangest experiences I’ve had to go through. As soon as someone found out that she did not eat cruelty to animals, she was ridiculed, at best, but mostly insulted and put down. She no longer understood the world.

Also in Austria, an activist receives threatening letters from hunters who think they have a shot load left for him and that they will set fire to his house. Normally, this would have been a threat to the public. Since it is an animal rights activist, there seems to be no need for action.
