SDSU students confront Vegan Outreach activist on campus lawn

A man known only as “Fred” stood outside the Student Union on the campus of South Dakota State University (SDSU) in Brookings, SD on Oct. 14, 2010, passing out fliers that read, “Even if you like meat, you can help end this cruelty. By just cutting your meat consumption in half, you can spare hundreds of animals from a lifetime of suffering.”

The propaganda aligned itself neatly with national campaigns such as Meatless Mondays, which according to the Web site, http://www.meatlessmonday.com, “Going meatless once a week may reduce your risk of chronic preventable conditions like cancer, cardiovascular disease, diabetes and obesity. It can also help reduce your carbon footprint and save precious resources like fresh water and fossil fuel.”

When junior agriculture education student Brian Gottlob, from Salem, SD, happened across Fred’s path, he found the activist from Vegan Outreach hiding behind a tree and avoiding contact with the students on campus. Thinking something was up, Gottlob approached him to see what he had to say.
