“It’s very simple,” Wynn told Robin Leach of Las Vegas Weekly. “I’m killing two birds at once, so to speak. Animal-based food kills people. This way by going vegan … we get healthy and save animals. I’m being selfish, too, because if I can get my employees healthier, we cut down on sick days and gain more productivity. Our plan to take care of ourselves this way has blended right in with our staff.
“I don’t want any more concentration camps for animals that are cruelly treated, force fed to fatten themselves up for our consumption,” he told Leach.
Apparently, Wynn’s devotion to the cause is so great, that he’s recently updated his will to benefit animal rights organizations.
“I’ve become an animal rights activist. I’m taken care of myself for the rest of my life. So I decided to change my will the last few days in case I croak. I’m not about to, and I’m not planning on that for a long time. But I’ve changed my will to show my concern for animal rights.”
How about that? Animal activists just scored a billionaire for their team. Check out the full interview over on Las Vegas Weekly.

Good move for Steve Wynn to protect people, animals and the environment by promoting vegan meals. I hope he will also stop the exploitation of dolphins and other wildlife for entertainment in his casinos.
