Good to know the jeffrey dahmers when you are approached by them.

Because when you bite through a grub, it twitches for a second or two, then it's dead.
When you fry half of a fish, it seems to stay alive and in pain for quite some time.
Let me put it to you this way. Would you rather have a steak cut off a cow that died relatively quickly, or one cut off a still-living cow that's chained up in front of your table and bellowing for your entertainment?
I have confidence you'd opt for the dead cow.

welcome to the real world, Taiwan to be more specific.
Probably no one here has seen the movie Korean Oldboy, where the main character swallows a small octopus alive in a restaurant.
They still eat dogs and cats there.
We have bigger problems facing this world than some people who seen too many "Indiana Jones and the temple of doom" movies....
Canada's Fisheries Minister says the new rules are modest modifications of existing practices aimed at placating the concerns of animal welfare groups and the European Union.
However the Minister also says the 2009 hunt will go ahead as planned.
The International Humane Society is dismissing the new rules as "cynical" and "cosmetic".

if it gets eaten, it doesnt matter how it dies. its dead.
.... other animals TEAR thier prey limb from limb to eat it. dont hear you complaining we should stop lions from eating gazelles. thats cruel!
The saddest thing about the film was listening to people laugh as the fish struggled for breath.
The comments above are very insensitive and show a lack of respect for other life forms.
When a hawk catches a smaller bird, the initial swift action of capturing prey is to break the neck in the instant of catching it. It is merciful.
With the fish displayed in the video above, it has been tortured in hot grease and left to be eaten alive.
This is repulsive. This is barbaric. The thought of treating creatures like this shows a lack of feeling...period. And those who find it entertaining or laughable are not quite human.
