Ve­gan’s ‘stab’ threat to mum

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

A VE­GAN has been fined for threat­en­ing to stab her mother for mak­ing tra­di­tional meat sauce in her pres­ence.

The ve­gan daugh­ter, 48, told court of­fi­cials that, prior to mov­ing to live with her mother she’d long been avoid­ing “sen­sory” and “ol­fac­tory con­tact” with an­i­mal prod­ucts.

Lawyers said that there had been “an es­ca­la­tion of ag­gres­sive episodes, al­ways over food” in the house­hold in Emilia Ro­magna, Italy.

Fu­ri­ous with the smell of meat sauce sim­mer­ing on the stove, the daugh­ter re­port­edly grabbed a knife and threat­ened her 69-year-old mother: “If you won’t stop on your own then I’ll make you stop. Quit mak­ing ragú, or I’ll stab you in the stom­ach.”

She was or­dered by pay a £400 court fine and £500 to her mother for phys­i­cally threats.
