This is a very one sided arguement:
the biggest point here is that the reason these animals are being treated like this (allegedly) is for the own personal gain of people, whether it be financial, pleasure etc.
Think about it from a different perspective: Why did the government make a snap decision to stop live trade?
For its own personal gain. Because of its position, the external pressure and power in the eyes of the public.
But this decision is "inhumane treatment" of our farmers and their livelihood. The pain and suffering of these fathers is going unnoticed and is disgusting!
