Cruel fixation

2017-02-15 06:02

THE latest abomination against animals being the capture and skinning of donkeys, adds to reports of dogs being farmed, kept in cages until they are cruelly slaughtered often by live skinning or having their fur removed with a blow torch to be eaten, and even a dog-eating festival being held, bears kept in small cages for years while having their bile extracted frequently, sharks being caught, having their fins cut off and released back in the sea to flounder until they die, rhinos slaughtered for their horns and many endangered species captured for medicinal or personal satisfaction, etc.

A common thread in this is almost all of it is carried out for or by the eastern Asian nations.

Why is this?

Please someone explain the fixation with these pointlessly cruel and barbaric practices.
