Quite apart from the appalling cruelty involved in the raising and slaughtering of animals for our consumption the Thai animal farming business makes no economic or environmental sense. It is a ludicrous exercise whereby the animals occupy a huge amount of land and related facilities and require massive quantities of food, only to then be killed to satisfy our degenerate appetites. Not only a horribly barbaric exercise but also extremely stupid.
I should add that some years ago I visited a modern slaughterhouse having been told that I would be impressed by the high-tech nature of the operation. It was, in fact, far and away the worst experience of my 77-year lifetime. I have witnessed a fair amount of death and destruction in various parts of the world but the awful memory of that day will haunt me forever. Human beings should be able to do better than this.
