Vegan’s ‘stab’ threat to mum
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.
