I love the faux outrage and unnecessary shock. Welcome to the reality of the world as you have the luxury of not seeing most of it's less desirable
aspects yet most still enjoy the spoils of just such activities.
1) This is a tradition. This is no justification in and of itself, but each culture is different and I don't even crucify the Chinese for eating dog
2) They eat the meat, it is a staple of their diet year round.
3) It seems that the community engages and spreads the catch among all the people.
All around seems far more humane than growing chickens so large they can't stand under their own grotesque weight, or growing them out of the wild,
or even killing to take some small portion and leaving the lion's share to rot.
While some ways to die might be "more preferable" (which seems ludicrous to me really), in the end they are not torturing them to death slowly and
the end result is the same.
Cut it's throat, stab it to death, crush it's head, all the same to me. How else do you kill fish?
Ever been deep sea fishing? I clubbed my 90 lbs tuna before taking it back and having it chopped up for my grill.
What IS humane? Catching it in an environmentally safe container, soothing it with smooth jazz while you let it drift into a chemical induced sleep,
followed by a heart stopping injection?
Not cost effective really.
