It is said that if you were to put a toddler, an apple, and a rabbit in the same room, the young child would eat the apple and pet the rabbit – not the other way around.

In fact, you’d be hard-pressed to find a person who would salivate over fresh roadkill or your pet dog. But because humans have been conditioned to believe that it’s perfectly acceptable to keep a pet cat and eat a pig or cow, few kids have made the connection that what they slather  in condiments at the dinner table was once a living animal.

Those that have, however, usually eschew meat right away. Kasia Stepkowska’s four-year-old son is one such individual.

The activist told Bored Panda

“One day my 4-year-old refused to have a pork for dinner after he gotten to know it was a part of a pig. He said:”I do not eat animals, they are my friends”.

We adults do not look at the piece of meat this way anymore. We do not see an animal on our plate – we simply see a steak… So who is right?”

Inspired to show that humans are naturally inclined to befriend animals rather than eat them, Stepkowska started a project in which she asked kids to eat live animals. The photos which were captured in the bold social experiment speak for themselves.

Mmm nice lobster you could say…
