Waste in any country in the world is a problem. Capitalism is supposed to be the most efficient system there is (so say the economists) but with so much waste it can not be. There is waste in many industries not just animal industries. Think about how much food supermarkets throw out each day just because it has tiny blemish on it or a tin is dented. These lamb carcasses are being wasted. If there is noone to eat them then they are being raised purely for vanity and fashion (the buyers vanity) which is not a need. People do not need to wear $5000 dollar coats. I don't blame the farmer for this becuase everyone has to make a living, I blame the consumer who thinks only about themselves and not the greater good of our world.
I find it disturbing that anyone would slaughter a baby animal.
I won't eat lamb or veal or any type of baby animal. That's just sick, even if it's considered to be a cultural tradition or way of life or whatever.
