Man protests outside a vegan festival by eating a raw pig's head - gross out ensues

In revolting news, a man has eaten parts of a raw pig’s head outside a vegan festival in Brighton to protest against people not eating meat.

While we’re not sure exactly why this would be something to protest, or a good method of doing so, the protester was seen with the severed head outside Vegfest at the Brighton centre, where he was filmed nibbling on the raw carcass.

The protester, who calls himself Sv3rige on YouTube, believes veganism is “is human cruelty”, but is apparently fine with brandishing severed heads.

He told Sky News:

We did it - it was eight of us - because veganism is malnutrition and you can't get over 15 nutrients from plants and some of us are ex-vegans who got sick because of it.

Eventually the police arrived to give him a warning, before he left the scene.

During the stunt, the man was surrounded by counter protesters.

Tim Barford, Vegfest UK manager, told the Brighton and Hove Independent:

We knew about the planned protest and were expecting 30 protestors – three turned up, which was slightly sad for them and reminiscent of a Nigel Farage march.

But they proceeded to upset kids and members of the public, and with that in mind, the police arrived, gave them a warning and sent them packing.

He added:

What was interesting was that we had meat eating members of the public saying that this revolting spectacle had encouraged them to give up eating meat – so it seems the anti vegan protest actually encouraged people to go vegan.
