During his time in the business, he killed about 10-15 dogs a day, and subsequently developed a growing sense of guilt over the killings.

Social media reactions

"Humans kill around 70 billion land animals and 3 trillion aquatic animals EVERY year for food. We can completely survive and thrive on plant-based food. Hence it is unnecessary to kill animals. In capacity to suffer dog/pig/chicken/cat/cow/buffaloe/goat/fish/birds are equal."

Rickychua0204 stated:

"Point of debate: How is eating dogs/cats different as eating pork/chickens?"

Laura.odo reacted:

"Nice! Ok, now with the other animals."

Johnmcgrathmusicproduction commented:

"Can we keep this same energy for pigs, cows, and chickens?"

Rahulkumar1619 said:

"They eat beef with no guilt and when come to dogs they judge a person's character."

"The amount of hypocrisy in the comments section. Let’s all blame condemn him for slaughtering dogs, when we do the same with any other animal."

Rohanvaish98 asked:

"Why doesn't karma affect people who eat turkey, beef, pork, and lamb? Because Karma is a fallacy."
