Facing the worst outbreak of foot-and-mouth disease since 1997, when 3.8 million were killed in an epidemic of the illness, Formosa (Taiwan) has slaughtered 983 pigs at a farm in the southern city of Tainan after they were found to be infected.

Meanwhile on Tuesday, December 20, Hong Kong culled more than 19,000 chickens as it raised the area's bird flu alert to the level of "serious" after several birds tested positive for the H5N1 virus strain, and in Bangladesh on the same day, the government killed almost 14,000 chickens and destroyed approximately 50,000 eggs as it endeavored to prevent the spread of disease.

It saddens us deeply to know of the suffering and deaths of these thousands of animal co-inhabitants.
With Heaven's grace, may all such tragic incidents be prevented through humanity's switch to life- sparing and nourishing vegan fare.
