French Butchers Fear Violent Vegans

A consortium of French butchers are sounding the alarm about what they  say is an unsettling rise in threatening behavior coming from angry  vegans. The group, which boasts more than 18,000 members, recently wrote  to the French government to express concern about their safety  following a rash of unnerving attacks on butcher shops. In one region of  the country, a whopping seven shops have been hit by vandals decrying  the different meats being offered by the businesses.

Blaming the media for glamorizing the vegan lifestyle and turning a  segment of the population against them, the butchers are now begging the  French government to intervene. Specifically, they've asked the French  Interior Minister to somehow put a stop to "the physical, verbal and  moral violence" aimed at them over the past few months. The leader of  the group clarified that they are not asking for police to be stationed  at shops in a manner akin to banks, but would like the government to  more closely monitor vegan groups who may be plotting nefarious deeds.
