Science Nerd Schools Tumblr User on Plague and Veganism

This thread was in response to this news of a couple in Mongolia who ate raw Marmot organs and subsequently died of Plague. The story itself is pretty tragic, but where i gets interesting is this tumblr user shooting down everyone's knee-jerk reactions to the headline without actually reading the thing. In very tumblr fashion, the thread turned into a conversation about the realities of veganism, sort of like this tumblr post that called out vegans for not eating honey.
