    I guess I don't see the waste angle when we kill livestock here and throw away so much? To me its either right or wrong across the board not right in this country but wrong in another.

    Do we waste so much? Aren't the words "animal by-products" the stuff that's used in so many other things like dog food, cat food and thousands of other products? Don't we use the meat, bone, skin, hair, hooves, ears, noses etc of the butchered animals? When a dollar can be made off an animal part I doubt most corporations waste much.
    Again I see the video wasteful since it is done just in the name of vanity. Not so much the waste of the lamb but the waste of the meat from the mother.

    Very good point Vida.

    Vanity.
    Meat isn't required obviously, I'm not going to try and say it is. The fact that the reason the animals are dying is for a coat that is in fashion is the part that personally bothers me.
    Is it illegeal? No. It still bothers -me- though because for some reason in my head, vanity is something I dislike more than someone who likes a burger.

    If it were taking place in America, my opinion on the matter wouldn't change.

    Call me crazy but I don't see poor people making a living as vanity. Nor feeding themselves and their families. Wonder what the average person in that part of the world has for a yearling income?

    I'm not criticizing the people supplying, I am criticizing the people demanding.

    If they were that poor they should eat the mutton.

    I'm sure they do eat some but just how much do you think they can eat? If everyone here has cattle and they used the fetus for something rather then just kill cows and toss the fetus in the scrap pile just how many of those cows could you eat? They need to make a living, theres a demand for a product they have. If your options are kill the ewe and sell the fetus or be even poorer then you are with no money to support your family which option would you take? Me a real easy choice for me.

    Its not like these people have freezers or even access to any to store meat and other food most don't even have electricity. I've been to Hati, Guatemala, the mountain regions of Korea, and Viet Nam those are just 4 countries with very poor areas in them even the poorest of the poor in this country live like Kings compared to those people.

    BTW similar things do take place in the U.S. And the vast majority support it by buying products from thiose industries.
