On Stern's December 14th show, employee Richard Christy chatted up his childhood life on a farm; including a story about his father killing a doe. “I could never shoot a deer,” said Stern. “He kills his own food. I admire that, I need someone else to do that for me.”
The conversation continued and Richard shared a childhood story about raising a calf that he named, appropriately, "Calfy". In order to have meat for the winter, Richard’s parents had the animal killed and he was devastated.
“I don’t wanna know my food,” said Stern. “I need to get involved eventually in this vegan sh**, like Robin, cause this is killing me.”
It's no surprise that Stern is an animal-lover; especially considering that his wife Beth Ostrosky Stern is a dedicated and passionate animal welfare activist. In 2008, the couple requested that in lieu of wedding presents, donations instead be made to the Wildlife Rescue Center of the Hamptons.
So, stay tuned. Like Tyson in 2010, Howard Stern could become the next famous face to drop the animal products and embrace a more compassionate diet.
