“God made cows, deers, pigs, goats and lambs for food and lambs are for sacrifice,” she told the demonstrators in a tone that brooked no argument. Then she pointed to the blow-up puppy and said, “These guys are for pets.” The protest was organized by Mercy for Animals, whose dozen or so volunteers handed out pamphlets decrying the treatment of animals farmed for food. “All animals care about their lives,” the pamphlets said. “Meat is cruelty on your plate.” Nora Kramer, 37, who works for the group, brought her dog along. Kramer said she had been vegan for 15 years “ever since I found out how the animals were treated.” Daiya, she said, was a rescue dog, named after a “really delicious” brand of vegan cheese. “Eat cats!” shouted a tattooed young man in a tank top and shorts as he passed Kramer and her fellow protesters. “A doggy,” a little girl said, tugging on her mother’s sleeve to get her attention. On her first day in Los Angeles, Beijing resident Wenlu Xie made her way down the street, examining the sidewalk stars: Milburn Stone, Bobbie Vernon, William Primrose. “I used to think I knew a lot about Hollywood. Then I read these names,” said the 26-year-old English teacher, who wore a pair of Hello Kitty eyeglass frames without lenses. Xie seemed equally intrigued by the protest. She posed in front of it for a souvenir picture. The demonstrators, many of whom pointed their signs at passing cars and buses, appeared content with whatever attention they could get.
