Kevin S. Lahey changed to a plant based diet in 2003 and obtained a Master’s Degree in Philosophy in 2007, with a concentration on ethics and animal rights. He has taught in Universities overseas and worked as an undercover investigator in two different countries. His extensive undercover experience has led him to explore the inner workings of the South Korean dog meat industry and the hog and poultry industry in the USA. His undercover videos have been exposed on YouTube and through Animal Rights organizations like Mercy For Animals (MFA) and Coexistence of Animal Rights on Earth (CARE). He is a passionate about animal rights and animal welfare and often advocates for the world wide transition to a plant based diet. He lives in Toronto, ON with his wife, daughter, and dog.
