Do you approve of this hole?

Apr 29, 2012 | Views: 5,972

Most of us can’t stand the pain from being poked by a needle, or even a paper cut… but what about having a permanent hole in your body??

Fistulation is a surgical process where a hole is intentionally made on the cow’s side to give scientists access to the internal organs of an animal. A large number of fistulated cows are used for scientific research, where they are experimented on for the digestibility of different foodstuff for cows. Perhaps such experimentation may benefit life stocks by developing better foodstuff for cows, but will they just grow faster to get slaughtered?

Not all fistulated cows are used for scientific research, some are used for medical purposes. When cows are sickly, having a sterile stomach can be very fatal because the normal bacteria that helps the cow to digest food are no longer there. In this situation, veterinarians take some of the stomach bacteria from another fistulated cow, and use it as medication for the sickly cow.

This practice has caused an uproar within anti animal cruelty and anti animal experimentation groups. However, scientists and even some veterinarians are adamant that fistulating a cow with a cannula (plastic device) does not harm the cow in anyway, and that this surgical process actually increases the cow’s life expectancy. This life expectancy is compared to cows who are bred for meat, milk and leather…

What do you think about fistulated cows? Do you think it is ethical to conduct such research on these cows for the benefit of other cows? Do leave your comments below.

    The dairy industry invented a new way to abuse cows, and is now cutting holes in them to improve milk production.Its call fistulation and a very cruel act of experiment in cows.The researcher are doing it to test the digestion of different, experimental blends of oats to create a more balanced feed for the animals.But they are doing it on the poor cows for their own sake. Fistulated cows are used for scientific research but the method used ,i do feel its cruel.Cannot imagine the pain the cows suffered as have witnessed many cases of fistula fixed in human.Its very painful i do feel it.
    Hope the researcher will find other alternative ways to do their researchn not on cows.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing.

    If this is acceptable, then for all the human patients who has a heart condition, a stomach condition, or a brain condition, should have a hole opened up on their body to faciliate the monitoring of their condition. So that the doctors can prescribe suitable and better medicine for the patient. Strangely, this is not done on human. But it is done on cows and the scienctist think it is ok. Just because the cow are held in captive and cannot speak human language does not mean that we, as human, can throw away morale standard and do what we wish onto the animal.

  3. Lin Mun on Jul 29, 2017 at 1:15 pm

    Seriously put a big hole on the cow to access his internal organs and the scientists said it is not painful? This is a very cruel and horrible act. Can’t they find other methods that does not bring harm and suffering to the cow? Ridiculous thing is that they even make the research center into a pet zoo so children can experiment putting their hand into the cow stomach. What message/value are they instilling to children? I hope this research center will change their method and stop this cruel act.

  4. Pastor Moh Mei on Dec 19, 2015 at 4:32 am

    I have never heard of, read or seen fistulation before this. That is just plain cruel. Do we cut a permanent hole on a human for science and medical research to benefit mankind? What we don’t do to ourselves we shouldn’t do to animals.

    Whatever benefits and knowledge gained are only to be used to breed more cows for milk, meat and leather. How does this remotely benefit the animal at all!!!

  5. AC on Jul 16, 2015 at 6:17 am

    I do not approve of holes being made in cows, or any other living thing. I had never heard of this procedure before, and I find it very shocking, unnatural and cruel.

  6. janette mejia on Apr 28, 2015 at 11:04 am

    So wrong. Absolutely cruel and unethical! If it shouldn’t be dobe on a person it shouldn’t be done on an animal! This is criminal and abusive.

  7. popa viorel on Nov 25, 2014 at 2:44 pm

    Este cel mai rau exemplu ptr omenire si un masacru adus animalelor si tot odată îmbolnăvirea populatiei datorita chimicalelor folosite. Este un genocid înfăptuit ptr îmbogatire rapidă.Ar trebui si autoritățile sa aibe implantate cannula sa simpta cum este!

  8. Pastor Yek Yee on Jun 13, 2014 at 4:37 pm

    I am so sorry which I really cannot stand this kind of thing happened!!!It’s sound like the scientist want to benefit the cow actually is not. Because they make some of the cow suffer more…I couldn’t stand that you want to help someone reduce their pain, but before the pain be reduce you used knife to cut their skin…what is the logic behind…I do not understand??!!Can someone explain to me?

    My logic is if you want to help someone, that you must sure the person or the cow not go through the suffering process until you successful stop their pain or suffering.Same like what is all fistulated cows experienced now.

    One thing I only can think about is the scientist tried to make sure all their experimental successful then they can benefit from there, it’s all about their own benefit not the cows:(:(Very cruel!!!

    Please stop it immediately!!!

  9. Jeremy on Jun 13, 2014 at 2:57 pm

    In my personal opinion, instead of condemning it, we might need to take a step back to see and look into the matter differently.

    Fistulation is being done for research purpose is understandable. Maybe instead being exposed they should have a closed lid. I don’t know. However, as a past researcher, animal ethics and human ethics are always the most tedious thing to be passed through before any experiment or research are being carried out. Most importantly, the well being of the test subject. If this “experiment” or “procedure” was approved, then there should be certain standards that are being instilled in order and to prevent any issues or legal cases being condemn on.

    No doubt, there will be better and different ways to do than that method, probably one agency or research group, should look into that matter. I do believe there is always a reason behind this procedure and matter rather than, we without knowing anything about agriculture or animal produces in terms of research should talk about it.

    Rather than condemning, maybe we can treat this as an educational thing like what rinpoche has showed, and levy, the pro and cons about it. And maybe put a little thought for the people who are stucked in the lab and farms, taking care of the animals and have the courage to do them.

    Just a two cents of my thought, I may be wrong, I do appreciate some constructive debate about it.

  10. Lucas Roth on Apr 28, 2014 at 11:29 pm

    I wouldn’t want a hole in my body, i will have no comment as i personally do not think this is good and it is a for of cruelty to animals, which i hate, but they say the cow lives longer. Also if the cow lives longer, it will just be longer with the hole. No comment today

    愿诸病有情,速脱疾病苦!亦愿众生疾,毕竟永不生!

    众生具有情,因为因果而有了不同的受生,我们既然有了功德转世为人,得到了善缘能以人身(六道里最适合修行佛法)寻找与学习佛法,那么我们就应该停止了所有不好的恶因

    倘若我们因为某些原因,可能是为了尝美食,为了研究等,而想从其他的有情众生里,把我们贪婪的欲念,并因为我们自己想得到长寿或食物,而把我们的想“快乐与幸福”转载成在他们的身上演变成痛苦

    那么我们不过是在这娑婆世界里,继续了一切的因果循环,并在六道里不断轮回着,我们现在是在人道,但是我们把自己觉得的快乐与幸福,演变成其他有情众生的痛苦

    对,他们是痛苦的,但我们还忍心的加剧他们的痛,他们的受伤的心,他们怨恨的心,他们的鲜血与眼泪,我相信,这些都会是牵引我们堕落下三道的因

    停止吧

    感恩仁波切的分享与开示,祈愿仁波切长驻在世长转法轮

  12. tong sun sun on Oct 11, 2013 at 3:17 pm

    天啊看了这影片我真得觉得惭愧,人们为了研究竟然如此对待动物。我们人类真的应该好好的向动物们忏悔。我们是灵长类,应该要想出更好的方法,而不是去伤害动物。

  13. VInnie Tan on Sep 17, 2013 at 2:36 am

    This is just disgusting! How would u feel if that hole was in your body permanently? It is just sad that the research facility can even use it as a tourist attraction, brain washing the children that it is okay to do things like this. Through this, what are we telling our next generation? Hurting animals that are weaker then us is okay and we should continue doing so? Or do we torture animals in ways then say it is okay because it is for research sake.

    It is just unbelievable that how people would even do these kind of things to animals. We should not be harming them in any way. More to say not like this!

  14. Sergei on Jun 13, 2013 at 12:12 am

    It’s just fucked up…. It’s worse than a matrix, its scientist who lost their humanity somewhere along the way. Why if normal person hurt dog or cat, will go to prison, but this butchers stay free and keep torturing animals?! “Scientist” who can’t observe animals without cutting them, should not be allowed to practice science, because this is not a science..

  15. sandra on Jun 10, 2013 at 3:47 pm

    This is cruelty to the animal who is voiceless. Just another sick practise in the name of science. I hope for the day where this is all stopped. People can survive just fine not eating animal meat. They would be a lot healthier too!

  16. Ana asbury on May 29, 2013 at 8:20 am

    I do not approve of this hole being made in cows

  17. Paris on Feb 3, 2013 at 3:25 pm

    Well I don’t really believe that this is being done for the greater benefit of other cows. Throughout history, cows have been doing very well on their own without needing all these interferences! It seems like humans have messed up the living conditions, health and welfare of cows and methods like fistulation are to either repair what they’ve damaged or, more selfishly, to make it “easier” for humans to breed cows for their own benefit – food, fashion, even more scientific research etc. Just as Rinpoche has pointed out, “Perhaps such experimentation may benefit life stocks by developing better foodstuff for cows, but will they just grow faster to get slaughtered?” So… exactly – the “life stocks” (and what a horrible way to refer to living creatures, as stocks!) are benefited but only so that they can ultimately benefit humans.

    I don’t think traditional farming methods would ever have conceived of something so cruel and unnecessary. And cows have been doing just fine all over the world for centuries without needed such violent intrusions. Cows – like every other living being – were not made to have holes through their stomachs and for their internal organs to be made so readily “accessible” to others! If they were meant to be like this, then surely they would have evolved and developed to be this way. The fact that they haven’t means that procedures like this are totally necessary.

  18. Jutika Lam on Jan 30, 2013 at 8:44 pm

    Dear Rinpoche,

    I totally do not approve this stupid act that these people would do such a thing to an innocent cow. It is true how we cannot stand a paper cut, being poked by an needle and any other forms of pain and yet there are people here making a permanent hole in cows just to make another cow well.

    What i just don’t get it is that why make a cow suffer a permanent hole just to heal another cow, why make two cows suffer instead of one? It just doesn’t make sense to me because of that.

    To me and think for most of the people it is just so disgusting and gross,totally can’t believe that even the kid shown in the picture really went and put his hand in that cows stomach. Even if somebody paid me a million bucks i would never in my life put my hand in to any animal’s stomach

    Thank you so much Rinpoche for sharing this disturbing yet realistic news. It was a real eyeopener and mind blowing.

    Love
    Jutika

  19. Andrew Boon on Jan 29, 2013 at 7:21 pm

    OMB… this is seriously VILE! How can humans actually do this? A feeding tube in a human is such discomfort let alone a gaping hole forced open by a contraption for ease of extracting contents from the stomach of a poor cow???

    There is something really wrong with ANY justification one can come out with to say it is for the betterment of these animals and in the name of medical research!!! Talk about delusional and selfish reasons.

    On the other hand, imagine the karma of the poor cow, being born as an animal and on top of it being subjected to such torture…

  20. Lucas Roth on Nov 7, 2012 at 2:00 pm

    wow this is quite disgusting. but even if this benefits other cows this might affect the cow. these cows should have the right not to be treated like this, they have rights too!

  21. Julien Roth on Oct 25, 2012 at 8:35 pm

    I do not approve of this hold at all. This video is just disgusting to watch. And Humans do this to experiment. I cant imagine the pain that the cow is in when people stick their arms inside the cow. Can you imagine if that happened to you? Do you think you would like it? I don’t think so. People should never do this to an animal. Please stop this.

  22. beatrix ooi on Oct 25, 2012 at 8:28 pm

    This is so sick. The scientists may claim that it’s to clean up the bacteria and stuffs in the stomach, but why can’t they find a better way that benefits the animals and humans. Animals in the sense that they do not have to suffer through all these inhumane activities. On the other side, humans do not have to collect more bad karma.
    Thank You for sharing Rinpoche, I have no idea that they have these kind of activities in other countries until i saw this article.
    Love,
    beatrix

  23. Sean Pang on Sep 22, 2012 at 6:46 am

    This is sick! The things we come up with in the name of science… What have we become?

  24. Julia Tan on Jul 7, 2012 at 5:34 pm

    I seriously do not care what is the purpose of the hole at the stomach of these caws for. Either for saving other sickly cows or whatever, it just doesn’t make sense. These cows do not feel the pain because they are on high dose of painkiller. Can you take it if a doctor make a big permanent hole at your stomach and telling you that he’s gonna take something from there from time to time to save someone’s life?

  25. Gisela T on Jul 6, 2012 at 12:38 pm

    I can’t believe it…the skin’s there for something, right, to protect what’s under it…this is so abusive I’m speechless. Something needs to be done to give the cows a right for the integrity of their bodies back.

  26. Wan Wai Meng on Jun 24, 2012 at 10:33 pm

    Even a pin prick we say OW! What a about a hole in our stomachs,oh my and how much antibiotics they have to feed the cow. Lets not harm animals anymore, animals feel TOO.

  27. Karen C. on Jun 16, 2012 at 5:58 pm

    This is ridiculously sick and seriously there is no humanity at all! I strongly disagree to use animals for research, be it for science, medicine or food. Why hurt other living beings just to satisfy our taste buds or the so-called betterment for us human beings?

    We always talk about human rights, oh yeah, but what about animals rights? People just ignore it. Sad. Animal cruelty is a big issue. If no one speak up and take legal actions to it, according to some research, by 2022, 22% of all species will be extinct.

  28. june ksjc on Jun 5, 2012 at 12:33 am

    我真是看傻眼了,太不仁道了!!不管有千百个理由也不应该这么样伤害这些动物。这些科学家口中所说的实验真的能够帮助人类吗?我们不想得到痛苦,动物也一样不想受到痛苦!!动物和我们有着同样的感受。。。停止伤害这些可怜的动物吧!!请大家茹素!!

  29. jason on May 11, 2012 at 6:34 pm

    I definitely do not approve of the use of this method and can’t imagine that their is a need for these methods?

    I mean if we can simulate and study the secrets of the universe through simulation and study without actually going to the sun or visiting the nearest black hole.

    Why do we need to rely on and use animals for testing and food when their are so many other alternatives so much better for our health and the environment. We have tools such as virtual modelling in some cases better than the real thing, for surgeons to practice NEW techniques less invasive methods safer for patients?

    So the real question that WE should be asking of science and scientists is why do we need to use animals in this way? If you would not do this to yourself what makes it right to do this to other beings?

    For scientist that are meant to have some brains between their ears? doesn’t seem like the best use of resources and brain matter in my view.

    I met a scientist in this field 10 years ago and asked the exact same question to her? I can’t believe this post has jogged my memory after so many years. To cut a long story short…a random conversation was a catalyst for this person to make a change…the decision had been made but required a tipping point.

    What sticks in my mind is the realization in her eyes that what she had done in her role was not good. The fact that she shared this information with me was a big step (even she admitted this) not even her family knew what she did for a job. After all these years I hope she found the new occupation she was looking for at that time.

    For these reasons I made the decision to NOT eat meat for the remainder of my life because I want my actions to match my beliefs.
    Looking back after many years of practice it is great to see the results of not being attached to food, that next meal and being able to dedicate these merits.

    I would humbly request that we may deride those on the other side of this debate, jump up and down and call them every name under the sun but would suggest that we can make a difference by being compassionate activist.

    Imagine- if an alien put a “fistula” on us; and, told us that they are doing us good by researching on us, how long we able to survive or how to prolong our life in order to use us more e.g: eat our meat? Becoming energetic slaves for them? I think i rather die than becoming a research objects.
    The cow, can’t shout at us and say NO! Can’t cry, can’t tell us that they are afraid.
    In the name of research, how many animals have to scarify their life to gives us an answer. By the name of science how many centuries the animals is torture and killed, until the research is so call completed.
    If science can get an answer related to human from an animal, this mean, science is actually thinking that the animals are similar to human.

    ini sudah terlampau, lembu pun boleh rasa sakit, kalau pakal sain buat ujian kepada manusia separti lembu, ada beberapa orang yang boleh menerima.

  32. Darren on May 5, 2012 at 6:55 pm

    Everyone has different point of views but for Buddhism view, we should not hurt or kill living beings. Even if research or test may prolong the life span of cows. But they will ended up as a product to produce milk and meat to satisfy the taste bud of humans. This post is similiar with the bear bile duct for medicine purpose. http://blog.tsemtulku.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/animals-vegetarianism/dont-buy-bear-bile.html

  33. wan on May 5, 2012 at 1:20 pm

    Many animals were used to test with some medicine or do some experiment to get a result to get a best medicine to cure human.
    Many of us do not know that many medicine which we are using now and it cure/release us from pain or suffering, actually it brought suffer to some animals and caused their life in some cases.

    its very hard to see this holes on the body of cow as i know how painful it is. I hope that the test will not take such longer time and there are less of such terrible test in future.

  34. Adrian cho on May 4, 2012 at 3:08 pm

    Thanks Rinpoche for sharing this post….
    I really can’t accept it and pity the cows, why they can treat the cows so cruel…
    I really can’t imagine it, if this hole is on human being….
    We are totally so lucky that can be human being in this life…

  35. Adeline Woon on May 4, 2012 at 2:52 pm

    No way! This make me sick to my stomach! I’ve even read somewhere a “scientist” said that the animal won’t feel hurt! I can feel for the cows by merely looking at it, what more imagining myself with on of this “fancy” hole!

  36. Shereen on May 4, 2012 at 2:09 pm

    this is disgusting!
    allowing others to touch whats inside makes it extra disgusting. this is sad.

  37. Tenzin Kyabsum on May 4, 2012 at 11:13 am

    The pictures of the fistulated cows just makes me sick! How could we do this to the cows or any other animals? This is just cruel. Yes it might be for whatever “research” to help the cows, but at the expense of what? Their bodies? Poor cows.
    At the risk of sounding like an ignorant idiot, these research are being conducted for what exactly? So that the cows can grow bigger and faster therefore killing it in a shorter time? Reasons for the research at the end of the day is also for us selfish human beings. This is downright ABSURD!

    Another question, how do we know if the fistulation doesn’t harm the cows? Does that mean the poor animal does not feel any pain?

    How can we do this to our kind mothers? How do YOU like having a hole in your stomach? No thanks.

    Thank you so much for sharing this, Rinpoche.
    Much Care,Jess

  38. wah ying on May 3, 2012 at 10:36 pm

    看了这报道,很恶心,为所谓有智慧的人类感到羞耻。以科学、研究、医药种种之名,把痛苦放在另一个生物,应该是我们都以为的“没有感觉、任我们宰割的动物”身上。

    我们常常为了满足自己的小小利益、欲望,牺牲了他人的福利和幸福。这可以是个借镜,告诉自己做任何所谓的“伟大”发明或什么决定前,站在他人的角度/立场来想一想,不要一味从自己的利益出发,唯有这样才不会出现这样荒谬可恶的想法/做法。

    己所不欲勿施于人,从茹素开始,从身边的人事物开始。感恩。

  39. Davin Chan on May 3, 2012 at 6:59 pm

    This is so terrible and making me sick. Of course none of us human want to have a hole in our stomach for any reason. I don’t think such a research on these cow will actually benefit others. I am only seeing the suffering of these cow. So cruel, so pain.

  40. Ksjc leu ChongHin him on May 3, 2012 at 1:47 pm

    這些被用在科学研究的动物们,身心一个定是受到很大創傷,真的為它們所受的痛苦難受。人類需要對自己行为反思。

  41. Albert on May 3, 2012 at 12:38 am

    What makes us so superior that we can torture these animals like this? why don’t we put a hole like this on our stomach? even by just looking at the pic, i also feel the pain… this is really so ouch….

  42. Fiona ng on May 3, 2012 at 12:22 am

    这就是人类的需求和科学进步,所以带给动物的痛苦。
    如果将来外界的外来物对我们人类有同样兴趣和研究,同样感受一样的痛苦。
    是人类想要的吗?
    聪明的消费人,世界上还有其他代替品!

  43. Bk on May 2, 2012 at 11:24 pm

    I wish all the scientists and vets who say that fistulated cows are doing fine, to have a hole in THEIR stomachs for others to poke around in. Would they allow it?? Of course not. So where do they get off saying that the cows a fine??!

    Seeing the pics makes me glad I am vegetarian and I am never going back to meat. This is just another reason to stop eating meat or using products the involve animal testing.

  44. Matt on May 2, 2012 at 9:03 pm

    This has got to be the most horrible thing I have ever seen. It looks so inhuman, what goes through their mind to make them do this? This is not the way cows were meant to live. Imagine having people constantly putting their hand inside you. Looks so painful and uncomfortable. It’s like the cow is some sort of machine or toy, for human gain. Horrible

  45. Rughal on May 2, 2012 at 8:53 pm

    I support this scientific research because it benefits people. If you are worried about the cattle, they actually live longer than normal due to the care given them as research animals.

  46. nyk zietara on May 2, 2012 at 5:03 pm

    trully obscene…feel like vomiting…..the child being encouraged to put his hand in…wooah…just abhorant ………

  47. ECheah on May 2, 2012 at 5:02 pm

    Utterly gross. Ok let’s turn the table on the people who came up with the idea and who insist it is absolutely no harm to the cows as they show no protest anyway. Let’s poke a hole in their stomochs and shove our hands in the hole and manipulate their insides while they are still awake. That should be ok too, since it’s ok the other way around? If you say it’s ok, prove it. If you protest, shows it’s not ok, then why do it to the cows? Why the double standard?

  48. Uncle Eddie on May 2, 2012 at 12:41 pm

    For decades, experiments which cause pains and sufferings have been conducted on animals, either to develope new medicines or to test for safety of products. Such tests also reduce the quality of life in animals in many other aborminable ways. Ethically, spiritually, humanely and in the living rights of a living ‘being’, no one should have the liberty to do so, i.e incurring pains and sufferings to it! Compassionate ethicists think we humans should hve a greater moral responsibility towards such animals, and make it compulsory to carry out reveiws before such experiments are been carried out. Care and attention should be paid to reduce possible distress, pains and sufferings to its minimal level if any to be caused to the poor animal. Any living animal also has life and is still a living being and has the right to live through it as given!

  49. Milly on May 2, 2012 at 12:12 pm

    I wonder if the scientists and veterinarians would agree to have a hole on their bodies even if they were told it would not harm them. If we stop eating meat, such research need not be conducted at the expense of inflicting pain on those poor cows. In a nutshell, its for profits $$ that such atrocious acts are still being done in civilized societies and packaged as “research”.

  50. tenzin llhamo on May 2, 2012 at 12:00 am

    I saw these in a documentary years back and felt that it is so wrong! I pity the cows because of the pain they have feel every second they live! People are generally so selfish. All for their own needs!

  51. Doris on May 1, 2012 at 4:58 pm

    No more excuses. Stop eating meat immediately.

  52. Swiftling on May 1, 2012 at 2:40 pm

    What karma brings such an Overself here as a cow with a hole in her stomach? Regardless of how worried and sad I feel for these cows and how unapproving of this practice, and neither can I pretend to know that a greater power is at work, but what is this greater power that is at work on this? I know there are sufferings in nature but this is one of those things that makes me struggle with thoughts that I see humans as the worst in the cause of sufferings, manmade sufferings. Why are we here? This planet had evolved well before human existed in it. So what are humans doing here on earth and being “the greatest” intelligent species we are among other intelligent species, and having the greatest and the worst of creations ever created by any creature on this planet to our credit.

    I am not a scientist, but I know science have brought us to where we are. That we are more knowledgeable through science. I do ask thought, is this the best way that these scientists can learn? People get opened up too to be saved. If it can be done, would anyone person volunteered to expose and display their inner body like these cows for the sakes of science. In this crazy world that I know of, I won’t be surprised that someone would, though the thought of it does shock me.

    I don’t know what else to think but I wish these cows can tell us what they think, and how they feel.

    • Swiftling on May 1, 2012 at 3:17 pm

      But i wish most, I pray they be free from suffering…

  53. Jeffrey Gan on May 1, 2012 at 2:13 pm

    The “fistulated” cows are then often put on display at events especially in Universities to lure Children and prospective student as well. Look how low people can go just to prospect students. There are more humane ways to teach science and animals to students than having them to reach into a cow’s stomach!.

  54. nicholas on May 1, 2012 at 11:28 am

    ooohhh. This is so sick!
    How in the world the make such a hole to the cow?
    For any reason, I don’t think it;s right!

    Not even human can take it. I just hope when they want to do all this they can think of the reflection of doing it to themselves.

    Just like Lew mentioned, if can’t stop it but at least we can be vegetarian to contribute the lessen of animal being slaughtered. From here hope they build up the compassion mind towards animals.

  55. Lim KSJC on May 1, 2012 at 2:55 am

    Om Mani Peme Hum… Human action make the animals so suffering. May the scientist Ignorance to be clear so that they can stop this kind of unskillful and cruel experience…

  56. Helena Chin on May 1, 2012 at 1:31 am

    This is terrible and sickening!!! What kind of research is this to harm these beings!!!

  57. william on May 1, 2012 at 12:59 am

    This is so cruel!! No matter what you say that the cow does not feel anything or increases its lifespan, it is totally cruel. I’m sure it is very painful to cut out that hole! Poor cows….. We should all be vegetarians and that will definitely reduce the need for research on how to breed the cows faster.

    I do not support this cruelty in the name of research!

  58. Pastor Chia on Apr 30, 2012 at 9:29 pm

    Human find many reason and excuses for science purpose to improve better our human live. But always cause more pain to other animal.In this case fistulated cow.
    It is work to do all this experience cause animal suffering and when it will end leave the permanent hole at the cow body.

  59. James Long on Apr 30, 2012 at 8:40 pm

    I totally disagree with this kind of act. Why not do the same on the scientist’s relative body so that they can do research on what foods are better for human, if successful, their relative will be benefited and be part of the “legacy” in the science history!!?!

    In Chinese we said “己所不欲,勿施于人",means whatever things that we do not want to have, never give it to others.

    In fact, many researches have proven that milk, high protein food such as meat are not necessary or suitable for human being to consume. All these protein end up become Acidic Waste which causes lost of calcium in individual body.

    Everyone should be vegetarian now.

  60. Victor Phang on Apr 30, 2012 at 3:14 pm

    For whatsoever purpose, that is no convincing reason to have fistulated cow. All kinds of animal can survive and know how to live in wild. Cows and other wild animals have been living in this planet for thousands of year without fistulation. I believe all beings have self-healing ability naturally, they know how to treat themselves when sick unless they are being locked and unable to look for the “medicine” they need.

    Human is really sick now, because of wanting higher productivity from animals to fulfill their unreasonable desires like making big profit then used whatever painful way to cruel animals with better name of scientific advancement!!!

    If those scientists have right motivation and are so sincere to improve life of any beings, then they should sacrifice themselves to be experimented with all kind of tubes, drugs and devices, like that I will really respect and salute them as they are just a living Buddha!!!

    Hopefully one day, Dharma can become one of the compulsory subjects in all the schools and universities.

    Thank you very much for sharing Rinpoche. Take very good care.
    With love,
    VP

  61. KH Ng on Apr 30, 2012 at 2:48 pm

    Seriously sick and intellectually moronic to justify with any reason that this is done and is ok. To introduce a child to this sick act is really bringing the moronic index to another level. Sorry for the cows and even more sorry for these researchers. Om Mani Padme Hum!

  62. Grace Leong on Apr 30, 2012 at 2:19 pm

    The main reason why such gross actions can be done on the cow is because the human species think that they are more superior , a class above other beings !! How sad is that ? When these humans are reborn as cows , I am sure they don’t want to be treated with such cruelty !

  63. Siong Woan on Apr 30, 2012 at 1:31 pm

    Shared this via FB and my uncle commented as follows:

    ‘They will be rewarded with retribution the next life…pray for mercy’

  64. Mc on Apr 30, 2012 at 6:30 am

    I cannot see how these people can allow themselves to tolerate, let alone participate in a process such as this. You would not be able to do this if we were to remotely regard the cow as a living being capable of pain.

    I am sure the same people would just flip their mind if they found a hole in their house, car or an expensive item of clothing. It is a pity that they cannot feel for living beings.

    Who benefits from this procedure anyway? What kind of research benefits from digging holes in living beings? I thought medical science was heading towards patching up holes instead of making them.

  65. WT on Apr 30, 2012 at 1:09 am

    This is really awful. Imagine the hole on my stomach and doctor putting their hands into it to check it daily just making me feeling so sick. Whenever I think of it, the image of patients in the PICU with tubes around them appeared on my mind. So much suffering the cows have been through. Om Mani Padme Hum.
    In addition to become vegetarian, we should also stop using any product that using animals for testing.
    May all beings be free from suffering and be well and happy.

  66. Yoshiaki on Apr 30, 2012 at 12:32 am

    If we don’t pray to Boddhisattvas to help and don’t help others, than there is no such thing as Dharma. The most important thing, problem in today’s times are all those complete idiots and retards that are living with the thought that theyare kings and everyone should respect them because of technology and mind-control! I say fuck them! let us kill them immediately! I bet this is what Buddha Amitabha really wants. if you will do nothing, i am not gonna stay with my hands in my pockets and wait ”for jesus” :)).

  67. Yoshiaki on Apr 30, 2012 at 12:27 am

    I request Him to do that!

  69. jennifer on Apr 29, 2012 at 11:44 pm

    This makes me sick ! Man is the only species that causes suffering and pain to other species ( besides doing the same to their very own kind ) , justifies the actions in the name of science , or whatever , and then claims and declares that Man is the most intelligent , civilised species amongst all the other species ! What they are doing to those poor cows is cruel and barbaric !

  70. Erickksiow on Apr 29, 2012 at 11:28 pm

    OMG… Big Hole on stomach..!! Human beings have no RIGHT to doing this to an Animals. Not even for science and any research. Animals have feeling too.. Stop animals cruelty!!!!

  71. Kevin Tan on Apr 29, 2012 at 10:51 pm

    Grotesque and unacceptable action by stupid beast to gentle animal.

  72. pastor ngeow on Apr 29, 2012 at 10:18 pm

    Shame on those who justify such atrocity by saying it actually benefits.To those people I ask them to have the same done on themselves if they declare that it is beneficial and there are no side effects or detrimental consequences if they truly mean what they say .

  73. Yokefui on Apr 29, 2012 at 10:02 pm

    I watched a documentary on this some time ago, I felt so sorry for the poor cow.

    How would you like to have a hole in your stomach so that others can dig into you any time they wish in the name of science and research ? : (

  74. David Martin on Apr 29, 2012 at 9:45 pm

    There are many things in this world that we find abhorrent, the practice of experimenting on living animals is one. Some may argue that in time we as humans recieve benefits from this practice and when we recieve these benifits some in the form of drugs to save our life’s , some in the form of new food stuffs and some that do actually benifit the very animals we torture, we as humans are apt to suddenly forget the animals that gave their lives for our benifit. One might ask which is more abhorrent those who experiment or those that benifit and forget. I would ask all who condem in the name of the Buddha to think first of the benifits they have recieved in their lives from birth until now. I would suggest that not one of you has not been in reciept of an antibiotic, a pill of some kind, a treatment that has not come from an other sentient being. Perhaps we should pause to give thanks and praise for the countless thousands of sentient beings that have given their lives for you. Condemnation of acts of cruelty is commendable perhaps we should look to our fellow man and put our own house in order first. Perhaps we should stop condemning others for their difference of faith, colour, creed,politics, or the choice we make in what we eat. Remember in our lives we will all kill something I hope it is not your compassion for your fellow man.

  75. nsa on Apr 29, 2012 at 8:21 pm

    omb this is seriously disgusting and what the heck are we thinking?!?!? My uncle once had an operation to remove a ruptured appendicitis and they made an open hole on the side of his abdomen to let the bad stuff flow out into a bag… if we would cringe at the thought of having a gaping hole in our side, imagine someone putting their fist into that hole and rummage around everyday. These are live cows! Not machines!

  76. patsy on Apr 29, 2012 at 8:18 pm

    This is so sickening. Especially the last photo of a young boy sticking his hand inside the hole.

    How would we feel if we have a hole in us? Even though this is for research purposes I feel that it is very cruel and inhumane.

    Stop eating meat and let’s create less sufferings for the animals.

  77. Lourdes on Apr 29, 2012 at 7:35 pm

    The day they try to put holes like this on human is the day the humans will stop committing such horrific things like this! Let’s get a hole in a human and exhibit him/her in a petting zoo and even let your kids (like shown above) stick their hands in your internal organs!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! We humans don’t think that animals hurt and feel the same as we do? I heard a very religious woman say to my face that “GOD” created animals to kill them and eat them… I’ve never heard such a savage statement coming from a Sunday church going lady!!!!!!!!!!!!!! And that’s how others think. Wake Up!!!

  81. Adeline on Apr 29, 2012 at 6:50 pm

    As we can see from these photos of the cows here every time they do research they have to resort to animal cruelty may it be cows,monkeys or whatever animals they picked the animals will have to endure sufferings during the experiments,so we better go for animal free tested products and stop eating meat.

  82. Elena on Apr 29, 2012 at 6:26 pm

    Omg, how cruel!!! Eww ewww eww eww eww EWW! And OF COURSE the researchers will say it’s necessary, that we have to do the research for the sake of human kind etc etc.

    Animal testing disgusting and cruel. How is the anatomy (chemically or physically) of a cow any way like that of a human? How is the anatomy of a rat, and its reactions any way like that of a human?

    And you know what? If it IS like that of a human, that means THEY can feel pain too, just like US. So if WE don’t like to feel pain, why on earth would they???

  83. Irene Lim on Apr 29, 2012 at 6:20 pm

    Oh Gosh! How would one feel if we were treated like these cows?

  84. mayy on Apr 29, 2012 at 6:09 pm

    OMB! How can they do this just because they want to save someone else life by making a BIG HOLE in another’s life in this case the cow! Imagine it if we as the human having the BIG HOLE on the body. Do we want that? What makes the cow different from us human? Just because they are animal? Yet still they are a living being like us.

  85. Siong Woan on Apr 29, 2012 at 4:52 pm

    Whatever the intention it may be, making a hole (a hugh one, by the look in the pictures) on the cows is subjecting the poor creatures continual suffering! In on the pictures, I could see the side of the hole is bleeding and I guess it will never heal properly.

    Whoever thinks it is OK to dig a hole big enough to put an adult hand in it is crazy! Why not let the cows dig a hole on your stomach in the name of healing you ??

  86. JP on Apr 29, 2012 at 4:35 pm

    NO! Animals should never be treated like this! Imagine if we used human beings for similar reasons? It’s not justifiable at all. So how can they justify it for animals? There must be better ways of helping the other sick cattle.

    For a start, everyone who feels bad for cattle being treated like this should become vegetarian. Killing animals just to satisfy our taste buds is worse than fistulating cattle.

    Reasons like, “It’s not convenient for my family and business associates when I’m vegetarian.” are all lame excuses. I’m vegetarian and I have absolutely no problems dining with my family and business associates. If they don’t want to eat with me or associate with me just because I’m a Buddhist who doesn’t kill, then too bad! I WILL NOT KILL JUST TO GET INTO THEIR GOOD BOOKS!

    Dharma practitioners should start walking the talk because that they are practising compassion. No matter how much they justify, there is NO JUSTIFICATION FOR KILLING!

  87. lewkwanleng on Apr 29, 2012 at 4:26 pm

    We should, in any way, cause harm to other beings.

    Saying that making a hole in the body is not painful is plain BS. If we say it is not painful, then I would ask, “would you mind I put a hole in your body, but it is not painful”.

    We may not be able to do much to stop all these, but the very least, we can become vegetarian and stop more animals being slaughtered.

    • Siong Woan on Apr 29, 2012 at 4:58 pm

  88. Girlie Ooi on Apr 29, 2012 at 4:15 pm

    I squirm when I see hospital patients with tubes going in and out at various points in their bodies. To think that these poor beings have to bear with the hole all their lives. And have people poking their hands inside to dig around. Oh that hurts!! I wouldn’t want someone to do that to me. So let’s not put these beings thru torture.

  89. ALEXSAY on Apr 29, 2012 at 2:35 pm

    THIS IS THE BEGINNING OF THE SICK HUMAN MIND. THE COWS ARE BEINGS NOT THINGS TO BE EXPERIMENTED ON….WHAT WILL THEY THINK OF NEXT? IT IS DEFINITELY CRUEL WHATEVER THE MOTIVE ARE…IT THIS THE ADVANCEMENT OF THE SO CALLED SCIENCE FOR THE BENEFIT OF HUMAN BEINGS? WHAT ABOUT THE RIGHT OF OTHER BEINGS? TOTALLY UNWHOLESOME ACT AND MUST BE CONDEMNED. WHERE IS KINDNESS AND COMPASSION THAT WE ALL SHOULD DEVELOP & CULTIVATE? IMAGINE ALIENS DOING THAT TO HUMAN ON EARTH FOR THE BENEFIT OF THEIR KIND!!! TOTALLY DISGUSTING RIGHT? PERIOD.

  90. Thierry on Apr 29, 2012 at 12:07 pm

    Whatever it is that I could not bear my mother to suffer, I should not accept it for any other being.
    I should feel the same compassion.
    Because there is no difference between the suffering experienced from the side of the being, be it my mother or another being.
    There is no difference but how my mind perceives this being, and that perception does not make the suffering less.
    So, to me, it is only plain logic, if I imagine my mother the object of such experiment and I feel sick, then there is no ground to accept the same suffering for any other being.

  91. jamiekhoo on Apr 29, 2012 at 12:01 pm

    I don’t believe there is actually anything that would justify using animals for research for so-called “betterment” of humans – for their food, science, medical etc. It’s very logical – why would humans be more “important” to justify the lives and pain of so many other animals, just for the sake of bettering OUR health or something as frivolous as our beauty!!!

    The scariest thing now however, is that we can’t always tell if products that we’re using have been tested on animals or not. Some of them do state on their packaging that they haven’t tested against animals, but many of them don’t say this – do we assume then, that they DO test on animals? You just can’t tell, really. It could be anything as simple and unassuming as a tube of lipstick, or a shampoo, or single capsule of medicine.

    It could also be that a company may not themselves engage in animal testing, but components of the ingredients they use for their products come from companies that do – there’s a lot of hidden “truths” out there that manufacturers could easily bypass and lie about.

    But I guess every bit of effort counts and we can start a step at a time to actively choose brands that DO state that they are against animal testing, or finding other more natural alternatives to the things we use. E.g. using natural remedies instead of high end medicines, or natural ingredients as toiletries and cosmetics instead.

  92. Han on Apr 29, 2012 at 12:00 pm

    What do you think about fistulated cows? Do you think it is ethical to conduct such research on these cows for the benefit of other cows?

    I think Fistulated cows are used to research the digestibility of different foodstuffs for cattle, still its very cruel to do this to animals, imagine, we have a hole with us for the whole life!

  93. henry ooi on Apr 29, 2012 at 11:53 am

    There are some people laying in hospital beds with tubes sticking out from their bodies leading to medical equipment. Some of these patients could be in in such situations for days and weeks. But humans are far better treated in hospitals than animals in places such as this shown in the pictures here.

    The scientists and vets may claim what they are doing is to find cures and it enhances the cows’ life span. But to leave a gaping hold for bacteria, germs and virus to invade is shocking. Surely, there could be better and humane ways to conduct such experiments.

  94. ck liew on Apr 29, 2012 at 11:37 am

    Imagining myself as a cow but with a thinking human brain? Do I want my body with a unclosable hole? On another hand I feel I am very much attached to my body because I cannot stand it when my body is in pain, unclean or tired.

    • David on May 3, 2012 at 10:51 pm

      Your body already has 7 completely un-sealable holes. 2 nostrils, 2 ears, a mouth, a urethra, and an anus. We allow doctors to reach into any of these holes when we feel there is something amiss, what is different about these cows?

      • Anon on Jan 30, 2013 at 9:29 am

        He said unclosable, not unsealable. Also, all of the openings you mentioned evolved for a specific natural purpose, this did not.

    Are you fucking serious! This has got to be some sort of wind up…

    • bibong on May 3, 2013 at 7:25 am

      These cattle with fistulated rumens are used so that cattle don’t experience nutritional deficiencies with diets that have been used by rural ‘farmers’ for a long time. They also are used to help attain healthier meat from cattle by manipulating concentrations of specific fatty acids with some being beneficial to the animal itself as well.
      It does look daunting at first sight, however due to the SURGICALLY administered cannula into the rumen, these cattle are A LOT better off than some cow at a dirty, unproductive, poorly managed country farm.

    The Mahabodhi temple is a UNESCO World heritage site, and been one of the 7 wonders of the Buddhist world has attracted hundred thousands of pilgrims yearly. It is the place where Gautama Buddha attained Enlightenment and under the Bodhi Tree. Its sad as it was targeted by terrorist, a series of ten bombs exploded in and around the Mahabodhi Temple complex. That was in 2013, early morning serial explosions rocked the Mahabodhi Temple injuring 2 monks and
    destroying certain parts in the pond of the Mahabodhi Temple. Windows were shattered at one of the buildings, while a wooden door at a small temple was destroyed. Luckily the temple inside was intact. The security of the temple was then tightened after this incident ever since . Some metal detectors and more cops and checkpoints were put in place. Attacks on Buddhists are rare in India, but these unfortunate incident somehow did happen.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing .

    Tajikistan is a country in Central Asia surrounded by Afghanistan, China, Kyrgyzstan and Uzbekistan. It’s known for rugged mountains, popular for hiking and climbing. Sunni Islam is, by far, the most widely practiced religion in Tajikistan. Religious liberty might be supposed to mean that everybody is free to discuss religion. Beliefs are a choice. We have the power to choose our beliefs. Our beliefs become our reality Everyone shall have the right to freedom of thought, conscience and religion. The status of respect for religious freedom eroded during recent years. Government policies reflected a concern about Islamic extremism .Tajikistan is unique in the world because it is illegal for people under age 18 to practice religion publicly, which includes attending mosques. Women are not allowed by the government to enter certain mosques and wearing black hijabs. Shops are not allowed to sell too and women are to wear traditional Tajik colours. Not only that additionally to it, the government places strictly limits on pilgrimage visits. As reportedly they harassed devotees by forcibly shaving their beards which are not allowed. Hundreds of thousands of men even children as young as seven years old in Tajikistan arrested in recent years for wearing a beard. Banning beards and dresses is really odd. It’s the government campaign against the adoption of Islamic cultural practices. Sad human rights within Tajikistan were been violated and basic human rights remains limited .

    Thanks for the interesting topic sharing where most people have great interest and
    curiosity about. Whether we choose to believe in the paranormal or not, we all have to realize that there are many strange things that has happened to all of us that are unexplainable.

    To me paranormal activities are considered as something close to religion too because in every single religion they always talk about spirits and etc. It’s whether you believe in the spiritual world or not sometimes it’s eerie and fascinating to read about all the things that go bump in the night.

    I like herbal remedies as they work gently and is not as harmful to the body as the pharmaceutical medication. However, I would say that they are more effective as preventive due to their slow nature.
    I used to hear people say food is the best remedy for sickness prevention, when we have proper intake of food, we can stay healthy for long term.Really a informative article.Thank you very much .

    A Mongolian highly respected lama Kensur Rinpoche Jetsun Ngawang Nyima of Drepung Gomang Monastic Institution in South India was truly a great teacher of our time. He was a great teacher of the Buddhist doctrine, preserving all the teachings of Tsongkapa’s golden lineage. He was such a kind and warm lama who had invited our lama to stay in Drepung Gomang Monastery. But Rinpoche turned down as Rinpoche had promised to be at Gaden. Rinpoche was touched by his affection, and has invited Rinpoche at any time come to Drepung and update him always. Before going back to Gaden , he even blessed Rinpoche. Amazingly and beautifully of such a meeting of a highly known lama, teacher and well respected by everyone , Rinpoche met. Merely by listening to the teachings of a GREAT lama from the video is a blessing.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    The White Temple of Thailand also known as Wat Rong Khun, which is outside Chiang Rai city. It is one of the most recognizable temple, attracting thousands of locals and tourist yearly. It is beautiful temple where everything in white colour, even the fishes reared in the ponds also white in colour. Well this temple is very unique as it stands out through the white colour. With the use of pieces of glass in the plaster, looks sparkling in the sun. The white colour signifies the purity of the Buddha, while the glass symbolizes the Buddha’s wisdom and the Dhamma, the Buddhist teachings.
    I have visited this amazing White Temple a few years back. Simply amazing. This bizarre-looking white temple located is the brainchild of Chiang Rai-born visual artist and painter Chalermchai Kositpipat. The temple is filled with Buddhist symbolisms, beautiful layout, architecture, all the way to the ornate reliefs and mirror decorations. Worthy visiting.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    Wow what a great day …..the historic first Kalachakra initiation been held publicly in Tibet, China in the last 50 years. For most by H H the 11th Panchen Lama Bainqen Erdini Qoigyijabu. Many highly attained masters and incarnated lamas and teachers and more than hundred thousand over monks and nuns attended this auspicious event. Looking at those beautiful pictures tells us all. So many of them it’s a blessing for them. With so many attending this event has proves that he is indeed the unmistaken incarnation as he is claimed by some as false and a fake Panchen Lama.
    With Panchen Lama as a spiritual leader, his influence made a huge impact on the Tibetans which is on the rise, this would be wonderful. In no time they might accept Dorje Shugden’s practice. Interesting read and blessing been able to see those beautiful pictures.
    Thank You Pastor David Lai for sharing.

    Arjia Rinpoche, one of the most important religious leaders to escape Tibet since the Dalai Lama fled into exile. A close friend of HH Dalai Lama and 10th Panchen Lama . At the age of two, he was recognized by the 10th Panchen Lama as the reincarnation of the father of Tsongkhapa who is the founder of the Gelug sect of Tibetan Buddhism. Rinpoche has spoken openly about unity and harmony in the community during the 30th Anniversary Commemoration of HH the 10th Panchen Lama’s Maha-Parinirvana. He has advised the Tibetans to stop discriminating against Dorje Shugden practitioners. No one should be discriminated just because of differences basis of their religious and spiritual faiths. Dorje Shugden as made a scapegoat by the Tibetan leadership for too long . Its time someone like Arjia Rinpoche or more people to speck up for the sake of world peace and harmony. Wonderful and simple speech yet clearly he spoke bravely on fulfilling the Panchen Lama’s wishes.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing of Arjia Rinpoche.

    American basketball legend Stephon Marbury has played 13 years in the NBA . Been professional basketball the former NBA superstar , looked to the world of Chinese basketball. Having migrated there he brought the Chinese team to national victory, winning three Chinese Basketball Association (CBA) championships. Marbury applied for and received a Chinese “green card”, as he been popular inspiring players ,bringing the whole team a positive and fighting spirit to victory. He is the fifth American basketball player to receive a green card in China. After all not easy to apply one as a foreigner . He also earned the nickname Commissar Ma for his role as a mentor to the teammates and younger players while playing in China. Wow…China immortalised Marbury with an arena statue, and got him a postage stamp of him. That’s wonderful, as they appreciate of what he has done for China.

    All religions share a similar message of peace and tolerance despite their differences. In the history of faith, there are so many beautiful and inspiring thoughts about creating peace and harmony among communities. We should help out to the poor or homeless regardless of race and of religion. Those Buddhist monks at Dhammarajika Monastery in Dhaka did a good job, in accord to Buddhist teachings. They gave out foods to the poor Muslims during Ramadan the Muslim fasting months. Looking at the pictures tells all. A wonderful way helping the hundreds poor people in the streets . That’s should be the way , well a rare example of religious harmony . Helping and giving are human strengths and weapons against the many arbitrary and malevolent dark forces that plague human existence.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    Religion and politics are two of the hardest things to talk about. Living in a country , we should be given religious freedom to choose what we want to pray. But it not mean we are spy of that country. Disappointed the Central Tibetan Administration (CTA) accuses Dorje Shugden practitioners as Chinese agents just because they practice Dorje Shugden. Rinpoche has been accused by the CTA . They said that said Rinpoche was a spy and an agent paid by China. All these were definite not true at all. Rinpoche had received the Dorje Shugden’s practice 30 years ago, been passed down from Rinpoche’s Guru. Many high lamas have been practising Dorje Shugden for the last 400 years, it is ridiculous to say they were Chinese spies too. All major religious traditions carry basically the same message, that is love, compassion and forgiveness. But sad the CTA ,having a fuss over it , and has created disharmony among Buddhist practitioners. It’s a matter of choice we choose to pray nothing political related to China. Just because we are Chinese , we are paid by the China , we are Chinese spies, that’s does not made sense at all. Regardless of our race or religion, we all want and need harmony. Hatred and conflict are often rooted in differences between people of different races and religions. We all need to respect people of different races as well as people of different faiths and religions.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing

The Unknown

The Known and unknown are both feared,
Known is being comfortable and stagnant,
The unknown may be growth and opportunities,
One shall never know if one fears the unknown more than the known.
Who says the unknown would be worse than the known?
But then again, the unknown is sometimes worse than the known. In the end nothing is known unless we endeavour,
So go pursue all the way with the unknown,
because all unknown with familiarity becomes the known.
~Tsem Rinpoche

  • She’s going to spend her whole life here without being able to move correctly. Like a machine. They are the slaves of the people and are viewed as a product. It’s immoral.

    What the meat industry figured out is that you don't need healthy animals to make a profit.
    Sick animals are more profitable... farms calculate how close to death they can keep animals without killing them. That's the business model. How quickly they can be made to grow, how tightly they can be packed, how much or how little can they eat, how sick they can get without dying... We live in a world in which it's conventional to treat an animal like a block of wood. ~ Jonathan Safran Foer
