Russian Man Calls the Cops When Wife Tries to Raise Kids as Vegetarians


Police in Vladivostok recently reviewed a report filed by a man against his wife, accusing her of endangering their children by “forcing them” to become vegetarian, the Interfax news agency reported on Wednesday.

“The man who filed the report claimed that his wife, a vegetarian, is forcing their children to give up meat, which is having a negative impact on their growth and development,” a police spokesperson told Interfax.

Social services has already visited the family’s home and interviewed the children, who are reportedly in good health. “The children didn’t complain about their mother, and the living conditions appear to be fine,” officials told Interfax.

Police say they did not find sufficient reason to continue with a criminal investigation.
