“Saved by the Barn” star Dan McKernan says just dipping your toe into a plant-based diet could help reduce viral pandemics … and, of course, spare more of the animals he rescues.
Dan was on “TMZ Live” Tuesday when he made a pitch for the vegan lifestyle, and the positive impact it can have on the planet. He’s not militant about it, and instead suggests you start slowly — a method he says worked for his 63-year-old “stubborn farmer” dad.
He also believes reducing animal consumption will reduce the number of pandemics caused by viruses jumping from animals to humans — a la the coronavirus.
Dan’s main focus, though, is on saving animals across the country and raising them on his Michigan farm. He’s had a lot of success … documented on his new Animal Planet show.
So far, he’s saved over 100 animals — none cuter than his pal, KJ the goat!!! Watch our video with him, we think you’ll agree.
