On July 7, 2001, The San Diego Union-Tribune reported that "members of a Hare Krishna temple are fighting a proposed McDonald's restaurant [in San Diego], saying it would foul the air with the smell of meat." They are offended by McDonald's proposal, said one member, because "a big part of our religion is vegetarianism; it's one of our main beliefs."
