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 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.
