Climate change: Will insect-eating dogs help?
By Roger Harrabin BBC environment analyst
https://www.bbc.com/news/science-environment-46811358

Excerpt:

"Do you fret that your pet pooch is blamed by environmentalists for turning rainforests into poo in the park?

Have no fear - you can now fatten Fido on black soldier flies instead of Brazilian beef."

Dog food made with insect larvae goes on sale in UK
https://www.standard.co.uk/news/uk/dog- ... 35061.html

Excerpt:
"Pets currently consume around 20 per cent of meat and fish worldwide, and pet food is estimated to be responsible for a quarter of the environmental impacts of meat production. The carbon footprint of a pet dog can double that of a 4x4.

Yora, aimed at owners attempting to make their pets more eco-friendly, is a dry kibble created from larvae of the Black Soldier Fly (Hermetia Illucens) combined with UK-grown oats, potatoes and herbs."
