BATTLEFIELD EARTH star Barry Pepper has given up eating veal after learning
how calves are bred for the meaty delicacy.
The actor was horrified when he learned the truth and has vowed never to
sample another mouthful.
He says, "I've only ever had veal once and I didn't know until somebody
told me after I had veal that evening.
"They actually raise them in the dark and they're in a body harness so
they can't move. The mother cow will come in just for feeding time, so they're
totally immobile and pitch black."
