The only thing they seem to be complaining about is the method of killing the crocs. Would be just like PETA to go and release the crocs into the wild.
Like the dog trade in China--the main complaints seem to be the methods of killing them and how they are kept.

The world is becoming more transparent and we also see that USA and CHINA are equally responsible for animal butchery .

Can't understand anyone who would wish to swank with a crocodile skin purse. Neither can I understand why these money people like the Beckham's, don't push all of this on the front pages, and world wide. They have the ability to drill on about it until something is done, but do anyone of them ? No ! Too wrapped up in their own contracts with bigger companies.

Interesting that the American place had worse treatment than the other.

I think some of the things may be overstated, when you have that many animals living in close proximity it doesn't make any business sense to risk infections as it can wipe out your stock which takes a long time to replace.

The bit about the putrid tank doesn't make sense, if the water is that bad and the workers are regularly getting cuts like that on there hands and arms - how come the wounds appear to have no significant infection?

I presume the rest of the carcase is used for meat etc.

We can't be far off the technology to grow skin and flesh without life in bulk - this will eventually be the future - promoting technology might be the way forward to avoid virtually all animal farming.

You may well be right DD , but I reckon insect farming will be an interim stage The Independant is stating there will be a massive food shortage by 2040 but I watched a programme in the last day or so which shows people commercially raising insects like crickets and locusts , which of course are very high protein . They can be raised in vast numbers using very little space ,and require little in the way of feeding . They are still experimenting with grinding the roasted insects down and making burgers and such with them . The interviewer reckoned the burgers were tasty although not the whole unadulterated insect . I think Id try them as long as they didnt look like insects any more.

they've recently released 1000's of lobsters and crabs which they liberated from the fishmarkets down south. Only trouble is they're norther american type beasties which will now proliferate and wipe our native species out. Big well done to them then.
