This recipe for squirrel melts will surely get another "gross" from Zack:

"Published figures suggest that, in Australia, producing wheat and other grains results in: at least 25 times more sentient animals being killed per kilogram of useable protein; more environmental damage; and a great deal more animal cruelty than does farming red meat." The problem with this is that it (like many things that try to use this as an argument against a vegetarian or vegan diet) is that it neglects to mention the fact that livestock farmers use more of those grains to feed their animals (the eventual red meat) than any vegetarian or vegan would ever consume. So in turning away from meat one might consume more grains directly, but less grain would still be used overall, and therefore the idea that the use of grain is contributing to more deaths overall is moot.
There may be a case to make that beef production results in less animal death … in Australia.
