ZWOLLE -- A stallholder selling spring-rolls was assaulted by a man in a shopping centre in the city of Zwolle.

The man asked for a vegetarian version of a spring-roll and was told that there was none. He allegedly lost his temper and hit the stallholder repeatedly in the face and head.

A security guard managed to detain the hotheaded vegetarian and hand him over to the police.

    It's interesting to think about if places stopped providing meat. Then THAT would be a different story. The phrases "expect everyone else to accomodate it" and "who cares" wouldn't apply to that situation and it would all of a sudden become VERY important! Unfortunately that won't be happening any time soon.

    Sounds like a anger management issue not a vergetarian issue! I get fustrated about a lot of things but I don't beat people up over it.
    As far as being a fustrated vegetarian, who cares??? I mean if you want to live a lifestyle live it but do not expect everyone else to accomodate it?

    The vegetarian should not feel that the seller is obligated to sell the vegetarian version, if there is not a strong enough market why stock it.

    Being vegetarian, I can understand the frustration of the world being obsessed with meat and often not offering vegetarian options (other than salad!!) BUT I would never lash out like that...what a nutter.
