  • I don't really care if they eat the cats, it's compareable with muslims and jews not eating pigs. But it's the cruelty around the industry that is wrong. And of course in this case that it's stolen pets that is slaughtered.

    • Asian culture predominantly has no regard for animal life - animals are "machines" that exist for their amusement and consumption and any kind of suffering they inflict on the animals is of no concern to their psyches. They have zero empathy for the animals or even themselves, as you can see some of these cats are people's pets.

      Skinning animals alive is a routine practice performed in front of children. Eating animals while still alive is a routine practice. Blowtorching dogs to d More..

    • Yea I know, and it's sick. I remember the chinese woman that was killing a cat by stomping it with her high heels. She was chocked by the reaction it created on the internet. I think that says something about the asian regard of animals.

      But I didn't know about why they was torturing the animals before killing them. Adrenaline in the meat is supposed to make the meat taste bad as I have heard. Thanks for the info.

  • Its really puzzling to me that in this country we put down so many cats and dogs everyday but we don't export the meat overseas. Cats,dogs,pigs,sheep,cows. Meat is meat. You can't argue about eating an animal just because you give it a name, people bond with all kinds of different animals, most of the animals we look at in the zoo are eaten in other lands. Stealing peoples pets for resale should be good for at least 50 lashes in my opinion, but until we decide not to eat any animals it seems alm More..

    • Look at the conditions the animals are it. Those conditions would be illegal in most industrial countries even if those were cows, pigs, or sheep.

      It's not just about the fact that they are cats. It's the absolute inhumane and unsanitary treatment of the animals. Many of them are skinned alive as well. There is a video I could show you of monkeys being skinned alive and tossed into a pile after they are skinned.

      Do you know what a pile of skinned but still living monkeys looks like? It More..

    • so what, killing to survive is strictly a human trait? do you think if lions had the intellegence and the means to put humans in cages and transport them for food or whatever, they wouldn't? you're giving humans too much credit. every emotion you experience, animals experience too. love, hate, sorrow, pain, greed, lust, envy; all of them. the only difference between us and the animals is that they don't have the intellegence or the means to kill us on a mass scale, but they would if they co More..

    • You're right, that was reactionary hyperbole, but I don't agree with your belief that animal welfare extends only up to the quality of the meat. I can't hide my digust of cultures who display a remarkable lack of empathy for other living things.

    • When did I say ONLY up to the quality of the meat?

      I have plenty of empathy for other living things, I dont want them to SUFFER. I just want to EAT them.

      I'm simply drawing the line at the point where emptathy won't prevent me from EATING the cute fuzzy ones.

      Just build a better cat/dog-farm, if need to. something free-range if you must.

      I just think it's stupid to take them off the menue.

    • No, not really, because that's not the extent of what they do (or don't do) with the animals. There are pretty much zero animal rights laws in China and Asia in general, so there is no regulation on humane slaughter. As a consequence of this and traditional beliefs, animals consumed in China are often brutalized and tortured extensively before consumption.

      To me this reeks of inhumanity and lack of empathy that I can't comprehend as both a human being and a westerner.

  • These people never learned about empathy, or sympathy. they care only about their own needs and feelings. It must come from their government not caring about them. Did you see the piece on HBO about how they kidnap peoples kids and sell them? I think something like 60,000 kids a year in just one city get kidnaped and sold, they sell their girlfriends to sex slave rings never to be seen again and the kidnappers don't feel bad about it. One trafficker even sold one of his own sons off. Can you fat More..

    • Nothing graphic but there are cats with collars and some with newborn kittens in them. Clearly unsanitary and inhumane conditions. Many of them are obviously stolen pets if they have collars.

    • Thanks... Yeah, I'd really enjoy beating the driver of the vehicle. What they do to animals in the fur trade is inhuman, and I have to think the people doing it are probably serial killers who do that to keep their blood-lust down.

      There's no excuse for it. It's easy enough to kill the animal first, the reason they don't is because they are suck and get off on torture. Anyone who condones it is a piece of shit.
