Renee King-Sonnen questioned herself and drew different conclusions about life. Veganism caused her to widen her circle of compassion to include all animals—human and nonhuman. She now fights for justice for animals of all species and people of all races, genders, and sexual orientations.
It all started with Rowdy Girl, a little, two-month old baby calf that my husband wanted me to care for, hoping I would start wanting to be a “good” ranchers wife. I bought her for $300 having no idea that she would take me down the rabbit hole where I would come out on the other side of compassion for all sentient beings – even the ones that used to end up on my plate. The rest they say is her-story.
Becoming vegan for me has been a result of living on the Sonnen Ranch, now Rowdy Girl Sanctuary with my multi-generational cattle rancher husband – I couldn’t take the red trailer leaving with the babies anymore – As a result I started watching documentaries and slaughterhouse videos and when I made the corner, I’ve never looked back. Forever Vegan!
