Crying Cows Convinced Carrie Underwood to Be a Vegetarian

Says she stopped eating red meat after watching her parents castrate a bull

So you know that Carrie Underwood is a vegetarian, famously so, and she reveals some reasons why in a slightly unusual interview in The Guardian in the U.K.

Carrie said her experiences growing up on the family farm raising cattle in Oklahoma turned her off to beef.

“The worst part of the year for me was when we took some off to sell, because they would cry for each other for a couple of days,” Carrie said. “That’s why I don't eat meat.”

The interviewer then asked, “Did you decide to be a vegetarian when you saw your parents castrating a bull?”

“No, well sort of, yes,” Carrie said. “That’s when I stopped eating red meat.” 

Who wouldn’t?
