“We don’t need to eat anyone who would run, swim, or fly away if he could”

"We don’t need to eat anyone who would run, swim, or fly away if he could” is a vegan saying that has been printed on many images.

“On yet another (poster—ed.), James Cromwell of ‘Babe’ fame hugs a pig. ‘We don’t need to eat anyone who would run, swim, or fly away if he could,’ reads the caption” was printed in the Atlanta (GA) Journal-Constitution on December 12, 1999. American actor James Cromwell starred in the movie Babe (1995) about a pig raised as livestock who wants to do the work of a sheepdog. The poster was promoted by People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA).

It is an adaptation of Dick King-Smith’s 1983 novel The Sheep-Pig, also known as Babe: The Gallant Pig in the US, which tells the story of a pig raised as livestock who wants to do the work of a sheepdog. The main animal characters are played by a combination of real and animatronic pigs and Border Collies.
