Putting aside for a minute whether or not I agree with your thoughts on the
matter of omnivorousness/vegetarianism, I'll point out that you misused the
word "sentient". It means "capable of feeling or perception", which a cow
or a dog most certainly is. Perhaps you instead meant "sapient", which
means "capable of rational thought".
