I had a job inspecting restaurants in Guangdong a few years back. Had a similar experience - saw a cat being blow-torched alive while hung by its mouth from a clothes hanger. Had a picture on my work camera - lost it. Was never as dramatic a photo as this though.
Oh little one, I weep for you. No loving caress, no toy to chew. Did your tail wag for the hand coming near? Did you lick the fingers you didn’t know to fear? Released from your cage did you start to play, Thinking that friendship had come your way? Oh little one, my heart does break, For the inhumane way your life they did take. God bless the little ones who have no chance For life, or love, or a tender glance. With love…Ice Queen Blue
Please note I posted this after seeing the horrifying link in one of the messages showing the dog skinned alive, thrown on a stack, and it turned it's naked head (with a little eyebrow of fur still left), nuzzled it's skinless body, blinked a few times and then died. I don't say don't eat meat. I say if it is necessary then treat the animal with respect and humaneness and make the end as quick and as painless as humanly possible.
Poor animals But that is the way of life. In your country, this is a cultural heritage or traditional snack/meal I presume? I've seen worse, but this is harsh for me. Not that I'm saying you are a monster, no. You eat what you eat, and I eat what I eat. Hope he tasted good!
