Hugh Fearnley Whittingstall who is always very vocal on animal welfare and wrote a very good piece in "Eating" by Jim Mason and Peter Singer.
During a radio interview he tried to point out that eating a pig was the same as eating a puppy. It has since been quoted everywhere and not really getting a good reception. It's really sad that people get so defensive when you talk about puppies and livestock.

"In principle," Hugh F-W told the Radio Times, "I have no objection to a high-welfare organic puppy farm."
