Hunting for the Yeti!

HuntForTheYeti-1

Bigfoot, Yeti, Sasquatch and Migo are some of the names of the creature that was once known as the ‘Abominable Snowman’. This hairy and bipedal creature is known to roam the Himalayas (and many other regions around the world) and evaded mankind for thousands of years.

The term ‘Abominable Snowman’ was coined in 1921 when Lieutenant-Colonel Charles Howard-Bury led the 1921 British Mount Everest reconnaissance expedition, which was chronicled in his book Mount Everest: The Reconnaissance, 1921. In the book, Howard-Bury wrote an account of crossing the Lhakpa La at 21,000 ft (6,400 m) where he found mysterious footprints that his Sherpa guides said belong to ‘The Wild Man of the Snows’ or ‘metoh-kangmi’. ‘Metoh’ translates as ‘man-bear’ and ‘kang-mi’ means ‘snowman’.

The use of ‘Abominable Snowman’ began when Henry Newman, a longtime contributor to The Statesman in Calcutta interviewed the Sherpa Guides of the British Mount Everest Expedition on their return to Darjeeling. Newman translated the word ‘metoh’ as ‘filthy’ and decided to replace it with ‘abominable’ instead. This was when the legend of the ‘Abominable Snowman’ was born and has since fired the Western imagination.

Sir Edmund Hillary, the first man to reach the summit of Mount Everest, holds an artist's impression of the Yeti. Sir Edmund Hillary famously believed in the existence of the Yeti, even launching expeditions solely dedicated to finding one.

To this day, the Bigfoot is still considered a myth due to a lack of conclusive evidence by the scientific community. However, for those who are native to the Himalayan region, the Yeti is not regarded as a mythical creature. It is considered as one of the many native creatures that inhabit the upper regions of the Himalayan Mountains. In other words, they have been accepted as real for thousands of years and even today, there are numerous eyewitness accounts from many Tibetan and Nepalese inhabitants from around the region.

According to native accounts, the Himalayan Bigfoot is an extremely tall ape-like creature that stands over 7 feet tall. These creatures are said to live in caves that are situated high up in the Himalayan range and move at an incredible speed. They are bipedal and covered in brown fur, which is a departure from the old Western depiction of the ‘white-furred’ Abominable Snowman. They live on fruits and berries, and they also prey on yaks, which means that they have an omnivorous diet. In the search for Bigfoot around the world, researchers have gathered mainly eyewitness accounts, a growing body of evidence like footprint casts, several undisputed video and audio footage of the Bigfoot, as well as with eyewitness accounts and reports of encountering these creatures.

Sir Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay who together were the first to summit Mount Everest on May 29, 1953. Both were believers in the existence of the Yeti.

In the following documentary, we follow travel-adventurer Josh Gates on The Travel Channel’s Expedition Unknown: Hunt for the Yeti through the Himalayan kingdom of Nepal and Bhutan on a mountainous trail through the Himalayas, investigating various clues and eyewitness accounts. The host of this program is witty and the pace of the documentary is fast and exciting, which is coupled with spectacular footage of the Himalayas alongside genuine and intriguing discoveries. This is one of the more exciting Bigfoot programs in recent times that will turn even the most skeptical viewer into a die-hard fan. I’ve watched many other Bigfoot/Yeti documentaries and invited friends to watch them with me, but they showed no interest. This four part documentary was quite well done and exciting. Previously uninterested friends in the Bigfoot/Yeti phenomena pulled up their chairs and came watched the four parts with me! At the conclusion, they remarked it was very good! One even said he is interested in Bigfoots/Yetis now! So hands up for Mr. Josh Gates! You did a good job with your team and I noticed you were very respectful of the native traditions, people and religion. I hope you will visit Nepal again and do further and more extensive research and I know the challenges are great with altitude and climbing. But I hope you do. I really enjoyed seeing Nepal as do many. It is a exotic place and I hope many will visit. I will look forward to you doing more Bigfoot documentaries also in North America and Australia (Yowie). It will be great if we can hear more about Mr. Kuniaki Yagihara a dedicated Yeti researcher from Japan with his own association. Maybe you can team up with him! I liked what little you showed of him when you met up with him. I will be re-watching the four episodes and share with more friends as they were exciting, educational as well as entertaining. But the Nepal locations are my favorite!

I have provided the videos here for strictly educational purposes and I hope many more will take interest in the Bigfoot/Yeti phenomena.

People and Places Featured in the Documentary

Kuniaki Yagihara

Kuniaki Yagihara is a seasoned Japanese mountaineer who reached the summit of Mount Everest in 1985. He is also the Chairman of Mountaineering Japan and Yeti Project Japan. He photographed footprints of an alleged Yeti near Mount Dhaulagiri, Nepal in October 2008.

HuntForTheYeti-22

The Japanese mountaineering group he belonged to said that they spotted several footprints in the snow at an altitude of 14,500 feet (4,400 meters). In the documentary Expedition Unknown: Hunt for the Yeti, Yagihara presented footage of an alleged Yeti that was filmed during one of his mountaineering expeditions.

 

Rum Doodle Café

One of the places that Josh Gates visits during his search for the reclusive Yeti is Rum Doodle Café in Kathmandu, Nepal, established in 1980. The café derives its name from the satirical series of mountaineering books called The Ascent of Rum Doodle by William Ernest Bowman. Rum Doodle is the name given to the highest peak in the world in his fictional work. The café itself is plastered with pictures from the book, and has become a venue for planning expeditions to the highest peak in the real world, Mount Everest.

HuntForTheYeti-2

Food served there is also named after events or characters in the fictional series, such as a bacon cheeseburger with egg named ‘Pong’s Revenge’. In the fictional series, Pong was an anti-hero who did tried his best to stop a handful of eccentric English mountaineers from reaching Run Doodle’s elusive summit. Though the story is well-known as a spoof, it has come to embody the determination and strength that mountaineers who climb Mount Everest need.

HuntForTheYeti-2

As one of the world’s favourite meeting places for mountaineering expeditions, it has seen the likes of Sir Edmund Hillary (the first to reach the summit of Mount Everest together with Tenzin Norgay), Reinhold Messner (who made the first ascent without the use of supplemental oxygen) and Ang Rita Sherpa (who climbed Mount Everest 10 times without the use of supplemental oxygen). In fact their signatures can still be seen behind the bar.

Modern mountaineers, trekking groups and backpackers still use Rum Doodle Café as a meeting place, to plan their expeditions or share stories of their modern adventures, including tales of the their Yeti encounters. The walls and ceilings are covered with Yeti foot prints, on which visitors have left messages or thoughts for others.

Nepal

The Republic of Nepal is a landlocked country in South Asia wedged between China in the north and India in the south. It has a multi-ethnic population of 26.4 million with Nepali as its official language. The city of Kathmandu is the nation’s capital and the largest city. Major ethnic groups in Nepal are the Newar, Sherpa, Gurung, Thakali, Tamang, Rai, Limbu, Tharu, Dolpo-pa, Brahman / Chhetri, Chepang, Sunuwar and MagarManagi.

Sherpas are renowned mountaineers, often hired as guides and porters for those wishing to ascend Mount Everest. And while there is no ethnic restriction, those from the Gurung, Magar, Rai, Limbu, Sunuwar and Chhetri ethnic groups often join the British Army as the world famous Gurkha soldiers who are known for their fearless military prowess.

Nepal is renowned for many things including its breathtaking scenery and its reputation as an extreme sport mecca. The country is also famous as a spiritual hotspot, and people travel from all over the world to Nepal seeking spiritual enlightenment. As for the Nepalese themselves, the overwhelming majority are Hindus while some of the ethnic groups consider themselves Buddhists, Jains, Muslims and animist. Due to the country’s position as a spiritual hotspot, ancient religious and cultural sites can be found throughout the country, many of which are listed as UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Lumbini is one such example; as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, Lumbini is famous for being the birthplace of the Buddha and hence one of the great pilgrimage sites for Buddhists from around the world.

 

How to Get There

By Air
Nepal’s only international airport is in the city of Kathmandu. Named Tribhuvan International Airport (KTM), it is served by many international airlines including Emirates, Qatar, Jet Airways, Air India, Singapore Airlines, Cathay Pacific and Thai Airways. The autumn (Sep-Nov) and spring (Feb-Mar) months are popular tourist seasons so airline tickets usually fill up months in advance for these dates. Airfares depend on both seasons and individual airlines. Most countries around the world do not have direct flights to Kathmandu, so they usually involve at least one stopover in neighbouring Asian countries. The majority of visitors travel to Nepal in conjunction with a trip to India, as there are many international airports with flights to Nepal.

By Land
It is possible to enter Nepal from both India and Bhutan via land. From India these crossings include the Sonauli-Belahiya route that is reachable via Delhi and most of North India, the Raxaul-Birgunj route that is reachable via Patna and Bodhgaya, and the Kakarbhitta route reachable from Darjeeling and Siliguri. Entry to Nepal from Tibet is also possible, if you have the correct permit.

Tourist Visas
It is very easy to obtain a tourist visa when visiting Nepal. On arrival at Tribhuvan International Airport or at all land border crosses that are open to foreigners, you are able to obtain a tourist visa. As long as you can pay the visa fee (the immigration offices take payment in USD, and sometime even insist on this), have passport photos on hand for the paperwork, have a whole page in your passport free for the visa and have a passport that is valid for six months or longer, you should have no problem with your tourist visa.

Bhutan

The Kingdom of Bhutan is a landlocked country in the Eastern Himalayas of South Asia. Bhutan is sandwiched between China to the north and India to the south. The capital of Bhutan is Thimpu, which is also the largest city, while Phuntsholing is Bhutan’s financial heart. Bhutan has a population of around 770,000 people that consists of mainly Ngalops and Sharchops, who are of Tibetan heritage and the minority Lhotshampa, who are of Nepalese heritage.

The national language is Bhutanese or Dzongkha, one of 53 languages in the Tibetan language family. The official script for the language is called Chokey or ‘Dharma language’, which is basically classical Tibetan. It is estimated that between 66% to 75% of the Bhutanese people are followers of Vajrayana Buddhism, which is also the state religion. The King of Bhutan is known as the Druk Gyalpo, meaning the ‘Thunder Dragon King’. The present King is His Majesty Jigme Khesar Namgyel Wangchuck, the fifth King of Bhutan who ascended the throne after his father abdicated in his favour.

Bhutan is famous for their adherence to a “Gross National Happiness” policy, a term coined by His Majesty the Fourth King of Bhutan, Jigme Singye Wangchuck in the 1970s. The concept implies that sustainable development should take a holistic approach towards notions of progress and give equal importance to non-economic aspects of wellbeing. For this reason, Bhutan is a forerunner in environmental protection and conservation initiatives in the region.

About 25% to 33% of Bhutanese are followers of Hinduism, while the remaining identify as Buddhist. The highest mountain in Bhutan is the Gangkhar Puensum with an elevation of 7,570 metres (24,836 ft). Due to its location, Bhutan has also been a hotbed of Yeti sightings for hundreds of years, especially in the higher mountainous regions and thick forests.

 

How to Get There

By Air
Bhutan has only one international airport known as Paro Airport. It is served by Bhutan Airlines, Druk Air and the Nepalese Buddha Air (by charter only). Considered one of the world’s most challenging airports to land on and take off from, only a certain number of highly trained pilots are certified to land there. Due to Bhutan’s small size, high altitude and relatively small scale of tourism, there are not many flights. Bhutan can be reached by air from neighbouring countries and a handful of other Asian countries. There are no long-haul flights available from countries outside of Asia. Therefore you will need to make a stopover at one of these Asian airports on your way there, if travelling from outside of Asia. The most popular of these airports are Kathmandu (Nepal), Singapore, Bangkok (Thailand), Dhaka (Bangladesh), and Delhi, Kolkata, Bagdogra, Guwahati and Gaya in India. Due to the small fleet of airplanes and erratic weather patterns, delays can occur in flight times, so it is advisable to allow at least four to five hours transit time before connecting to or from a Bhutan Airlines or Druk Air flight.

By Land
There are only two official land border crossings into and out of Bhutan. These are Phuntsholing which is reachable from the town of Jaigaon, West Bengal in Northern India. The other is Samdrup Jongkar which is reachable from Assam State in India. Roads to and inside of Bhutan are usually quite narrow and the usual speed of driving is between 35-40 kilometres per hour due to the number of bends in the roads amongst the mountainous terrain.

Tourist Visas
Indian, Bangladeshi and Maldivian nationals can obtain their tourist visa at Paro airport or the two land border crossings. They simply need a passport that is valid for six months or longer from the date of entry. All other nationals must obtain their tourist visa before travelling to Bhutan. These cannot be obtained in person but must be acquired through a licensed Bhutanese tour operator or foreign travel agent. As part of the visa application process, foreign nationals are required to submit the photo-page of their passport to the Tourism Council of Bhutan, via their tour operator. Once the full payment of your holiday, inclusive of the USD40 visa fee, has been transferred to the Tourism Council of Bhutan, a visa clearance letter will be processed within 72 hours. Visitors will need to provide a copy of this visa clearance letter upon entry to Bhutan, where the tourist visa will be stamped into the passport.

    Curious about the legendary Yeti? Not sure what to believe? Here is an article that explores a range of sources, from folktales to newspaper reports, detailing sightings and encounters with the elusive creature, who has been a part of the very fabric of various Himalayan communities for thousands of years. Read about religious beliefs, myths, fables and stories by scholars and travellers alike, and realise that there is more to the Yeti than you previously thought.

    In 1967, Bob Gimlin and Roger Patterson stumbled across an incredible sight whilst out in Bluff Creek, in the California wilderness. At a creek which had been freshly washed-out by recent floods, they witnessed a female Bigfoot swiftly traverse the rugged landscape. Since their filmed encounter with the Bigfoot, who has since been nicknamed Patty, many have disputed the authenticity of their recording but no one has been able to successfully prove that it is a fake.

    Credits for this video goes to entirely to windvale for the original footage. ?

    I do think the Yeti exist. If we relied on solely on empirical proof and a body, then all the people who have seen or encountered the Yeti are delusional.

    The hunt for the Yeti, may not be feasible as this creature the Yeti, why does it remain so elusive, could it be has above average intelligence compared to other animals and it is in its element in nature he can disappear at will, who knows perhaps it can even read minds of the people who are trying to catch it.

    I like one of the scientist who appeared in the initial part of the documentary, he said that new species are still being discovered as we speak, so why not the Yeti.

  14. Kb Thapa on Nov 22, 2016 at 12:47 am

    This is the of the best documentary ever seen. This team to Find Bigfoot traveling around the world including Nepal in search of the infamous Yeti. They visit monasteries with Yeti relics, talk to witnesses and travel into the dense forests of the Himalayas. Nepal is famous and soo many eye witnesses can not which can not ignored. I would say Big Foot diffidently exist we very near to find him. Thank you Rinpoche for this interesting article…

  15. Uncle Eddie on Nov 17, 2016 at 2:44 pm

    It is said “Tibetan high Lamas of great standing have reported seeing Yetis or Bigfoots……..There has never been doubts amongst Tibetans, Nepalese, North Indians, Monguls of Siberia that these extraordinary creatures exist. It is also said in the scriptures, that bigfoot/Yetis exist……….!” It was also once reported that, “Domo Rinpoche who used to meditate in scheduled caves and when he gained attainments, Yetis who were Himalayan Bigfoots visited him, giving him special milk, with which he made into powerful healings, which even the 13th Dalai Lama and Panchen Lama also wanted these pills. Scholars, doctors, Lamas and even “conquerors” to the summit of mount Everest, Sir Edmund Hillary and Terzing Norgay, were both belivers of the existence of Bigfoot/Yeti! As for scientific analysists, Researchers led by prominent Dr. Melba S.Ketchum of DNA Diagnostic authority, were said to have analyzed 111 specimens that were purported to be sasquatch hair, blood, skin and other tissues types. Individuals at other 34 different Hominin Research sites in 14 U.S.States and two canadian Provinces has submitted samples for study. As a result, Dr. Melba S. Ketchum told RedOrbit that “The findings definitively prove the existence of a surviving Hominin in North America!” Therefore, whatever depicted hereto, were true evidences and existences, and there should’nt be any doubts, unless otherwise proven!!! Yes, Yeti is truly in existence! Om Mani Padme Hung.

    Bigfoot known for centuries to the Indigenous Peoples of the Pacific Northwest of America and Canada. The Yeti has been known to the Tibet and Nepal people as well for centuries…

  17. Choong on Nov 13, 2016 at 2:15 am

    After Rinpoche piqued my interest in Bigfoot, a long time after I read about them when I was a child, I decided to do some research.

    To me, the strongest evidence that Bigfoot exists and has in fact been captured on film such as the famous Paterson, lies in body ratios.

    Here is a short video on Youtube that explains the body ratios.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qk6dPSiIG54

  18. Fong on Nov 12, 2016 at 9:03 pm

    There seems to be a lot evidences of Big Foot in landlocked countries or region across the world and especially so in forested areas in high altitude.

    So, even though we have found remains of Big Foot, it does not mean that they don’t exist. If there is the 6-realms of Samsara, then they may exist within Samsara and yet we are unable to perceive them.

    Love reading about the various Himalayan countries and what they have to offer in terms of Big Foot.

  19. Pastor Han Nee on Nov 12, 2016 at 3:54 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing the story of Josh Gates’ search for the Bigfoot/Yeti. Josh Gates is very passionate and sincere about getting conclusive evidence on the Yeti. He will leave no stone unturned in his search. Yes, there are many names for the BigFoot and so many reports of sightings. However, the trail is getting hotter! Conclusive hard evidence will definitely be found. Already, Josh has taken us on a rather convincing trail in search of the mystic being, that featured significantly in the annals of Tibetan Buddhist Lamas. It gets more exciting now.

    The Yeti is huge in size and has been evasive so far because, I believe, he is very intelligent. The earthquake described in Josh Gates’ first video apparently did not destroy the Yeti in the area where Josh Gates is looking for him.

  20. Stella Cheang on Nov 12, 2016 at 2:08 pm

    Wow, there are many names for “Big Foot”, which goes to show that this being had been in existence in many places and for a long time. They have been elusive which is why human developed interest on them and wanted to “hunt” for it. It can be a good way to bring awareness to places where the “Big Foot” exist(ed). Personally, I believe there is many amazing beings around us either living in the urban with us or in the less explored places. As urbanization take place, it is not surprising that many “Big Foot” exist today nearer to us than before. Thank you Rinpoche for this interesting sharing.

  21. Bradley Kassian on Nov 11, 2016 at 2:50 am

    So many names for the same being all around the world. Prehaps different subspecies but it’s amazing how there are so many accounts of these creatures. I remember fondly my grandfather who had an encounter along the Thompson River in the Okanagan, BC Canada. He saw one well he was out on a trip. He stated it was picking berries, and had an awful smell. Thank you Rinpoche and blog team. This is a great article. Bigfoot has always been facinating too me from a young age. I just didn’t realize how many names there are of these creatures.

  22. Hayden Chan on Nov 10, 2016 at 2:41 pm

    Wow! I didn’t know that there are so many names for Bigfoot. I actually found a comic book that contains some information about Bigfoot. It is by Gempak Stars,a Malaysian comic company. I forgot the name of the comic. But it has useful information about Bigfoot. Thank you Valentina for writing this post.

    Lama Tsongkhapa was an influential Tibetan Buddhist monk, philosopher and tantric yogi, whose activities led to the formation of the Gelug school of Tibetan Buddhism . Lama Tsongkhapa was hailed as the second Buddha by contemporary Buddhist masters of his time. Famous for reviving Buddhism in Tibet and revered for elevating the Dharma to all its present glory. Hence having a 12 ft Lama Tsongkhapa Statue at new Kechara Gompa (Prayer Hall) is indeed a blessing. Its truly beautiful. Merely by looking at it is a blessing .
    Thank you Rinpoche and team effort making it possible.

    The Pemayangtse Monastery is a Buddhist monastery, near Pelling in the northeastern Sikkim. The monastery is about 375 year old and is one of the oldest and premier monasteries of Sikkim. Its also the most famous monastery in Sikkim and one of the most important monastery belonging to the Nyingma order of Tibetan Buddhism. Pemayangtse monastery was founded around 1647-48 recording to history. Well the Monastery is part of Buddhist religious pilgrimage circuit built with scenic backdrop of snow-capped mountains on two sides. Where many locals and tourists will travel to Sikkim yearly . Over the centuries, the monastery has withstood earthquakes and has gone through series of refurbishments and preservation efforts. Interesting story behind this monastery, would love to travel to Sikkim again .
    Lieutenant Colonel Laurence Austine Waddell was a British explorer, collector in Tibet, and author, travelling throughout India,Sikkim and areas on the borders of Nepal and Tibet. He wrote about the Tibetan Buddhist religious practices from what he observed while there. In Sikkim he made a stunning discovery, that Dorje Shugden existence in the Nyingma monastery as written in his book. Hence it has proven that Dorje Shugden been worshipped not only in Gelug lineage but as well in the Nyingma centuries ago too. Its not a minority practice afterall .
    Thank you Rinpoche and Seow Choong Liang for this interesting sharing.

    Revisit this interesting post of a great Master
    Buton Rinchen Drup, was a 14th-century Sakya master and Tibetan Buddhist leader. He is widely considered to be one of Tibet’s greatest scholars, historians, translators, and writers. He has been the role model for many of Tibet’s greatest masters over the centuries, including the present Dalai Lama. His legacy also included the compilation of 500 years’ worth of translated teachings into the encyclopedic Kangyur and Tangyur collections. This monumental effort helped to preserve and propagate the teachings throughout Tibet. These collections have become well known by all of the schools of Buddhism in Tibet, and continue to this day. He truly was one of the brightest lights of Tibetan Buddhism.
    Throughout his life, Buton Rinchen Drup has continued to serve humanity and the Dharma. Interesting read.
    Thank you Rinpoche and Pastor David for this sharing.

Toyuq, an Islamic pilgrimage center, nestles at the base of the Flaming Mountains. Here there are many mosques, both medieval and modern ones been built over the years. The first Uighur ruler had converted to Islam, and shrines was then built in the locality honouring the ruler. There was a story behind the legendary Seven Sleepers of Ephesus where there was a group of youths hiding inside a cave, at the Flaming mountains outside the city of Ephesus around 250 AD. Buildings can be seen practically everywhere with pierced walls that is used for drying grapes to make raisins. Raisins and melons are most known products of the region.

    The Fourth Takpu, Pema Vajra Jampel Tenpai Ngodrub was a highly attained lama. He was also commonly known as Takpu Dorje Chang who had many authentic visions of the Buddhas. He had even received directly teachings from Buddhas. He had received direct visions of Tara herself. Tagpu Pemavajra had travelled to Tushita, the heavenly abode of Lama Tsongkhapa as requested by Kyabje Pabongka Rinpoche where he received the complete cycle of teachings on Dorje Shugden. Tagpu Pemavajra was one such lama who was attained enough to receive these teachings for the benefit of others. He was instrumental in the development of the Dorje Shugden practice within the Gelug tradition. Wow he was able to astral travel to various pure lands and receive special teachings. Interesting biography of a great lama.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    Amazing discovery a 2,000 year old Indian Buddhist document as it tell us how Buddhism took root in India. It’s the oldest Buddhist manuscripts yet discovered, dating from about the 1st century BCE to 3rd century CE. Found in the north-western outskirts of the Indian subcontinent an ancient Buddhist kindgom. The document, written on a birch bark scroll offers rare insight into the early history of Buddhism. Surviving manuscripts are rare only a few hundred are known to still exist. Understanding the history of the region helps us realize the significance of this scroll.

    Visited this stunning standing Manjushri which is located at the Manjushree Park at Chobhar, in Kathmandu, Nepal recently. Feeling so blessed able to see it , with my friends. Manjushree Park, one of most natural, historic attactive park within Kathmandu valley. Fantastic well managed picnic spot one should visit and not to be missed when one is at Kathmandu Nepal. Visible 33 ft. high black stone carved Manjushree statue .Manjushri is one of the most important iconic figures in Mahayana Buddhism. The powerful image representing ever-present wisdom plus the sword of awareness to cut off all delusion. An interesting story behind this Kathmandu Valley where mythology and geology intertwine.

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

    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
