I noticed an odd occurance. A short time ago I became a vegetarian, since that
time I have found myself capable of approaching normally skiddish animals
(ducks, squirrels, etc). I also spoke to an individual who is not a
vegetarian, but for a short time, while in central america, was forced into
temporary vegetarianism and experienced the same phenomena. My hypothesis is
that carnivors exude a different smell than herbivores thereby triggering a
flight response in potential prey. I would appreciate your
evaluations/critiques of my idea, please email me .
