    Theres lots of people in the world that live without meat. I just can't jump on the bandwagon somethings OK to do because I use one product but something else is bad because I don't.

    I have to agree with county on this one. We don't need meat, we certainly don't need lamb chops - lamb, not sheep. What I find particularly disturbing is the waste.

    I believe that what we are shocked about is the reality of it. If you take a youngster raised in the inner city and put him out in the country, he/she would be shocked to see where the chicken he gets at the supermarket actually comes from and not that it just shows up in the meat section all packaged.

    What we take as shocking, others take as a fact of life - or livelihood.

    I haven't read most of the replies to this topic, this is just my unbiased openion.

    It is not so much the concept of killing lambs that bothers me, but the way it is done in that video. Killing the mothers along with the babies is unnessisary in my eyes. Plus, they didn't even use the lambs' bodies for meat. I mean, that is wasteful.

    I think I heard someone say that this took place in a poor country. If they were truely poor and hanging on by almost nothing, they should have eaten those lambs or sold them for food or something.

    I agree, the biggest problem I see here is waste.

    I still don't really agree how you could...make a profit (?) off of the in utero lambs since you are killing the mother as well. You would have to raise another sheep to impregnate and kill again. With the amount of lamb skin needed to make a coat, I don't really see how they pull that off? Does anyone know?

    I guess the process is what makes it so expensive.

    Theres no shortage of cows here in the U.S. Even though we kill bred ones. Theres many many more ewes in the world then cows, goat meat is the largest consumed meat in the world followed by mutton/lamb.

    I agree strongly with both of you. That idea does seem very wasteful and a better way than will be beter for the everyone involved and the lambs too.

    Why would they eat the lambs when theres millions of them in the country already? And just who would they sell them to virtually everyone has sheep there they use them for food, fibre, and milk. Does anyone actually beleive they sell these lambs to be cruel? Abusive? They don't need the money? They can make as much with them other ways? Their not a poor country?

    Lets at least try and be real about it.

    I see anything dead (animals not humans) that isn't being used as waste. Even movies depicting the days of the buffalo hunter. They killed them by the thousands just taking the hides and leaving the meat. Native Americans were puzzled and saddened by the waste of the white man.
    I'm not a road kill eater (I know those who are) but I see dead deer along the side of the road and I'm saddened by the waste. I see the same in this situation but it sickens me more since it is done in the name of vanity.
