Naw, I think that they just baste their buffalo with a little of the Ganges for flavor.  That'll make your eyes water. :roll:

Just an archaic stupid waste. This is the crap that ends up as cheap shoes and couches.

Not as bad as when the Bison were exterminated to remove the food supply from the American Indians.

The thing is, this sort of thing is done all over the world, every day in processing plants, you just don't see it happening and the animals are "mostly" killed quickly. It said the people eat all animals that were sacrificed, so although a bit barbaric in practice the animals aren't going to waste.

First....200,000 buffaloes were NOT killed.

Second...comparing this to extermination of bison to starve Indians, it not even a connection....other than another poor attempt to once again bash the U.S.

I've come to expect no less from some......  ;)

When I start bashing the US, trust me you will know about it.

Theres no shortage of targets thats for sure, but if you are extremely bored one day and read some of my other posts, you will find no stauncher supporter of the U.S.A. Note the capitals :-D

Down here, we had to resort to shooting, drowning, and poisoning flour to do away with as many Aboriginals as we could. Kangaroos dont do big herds unfortunately. Plus the Abo`s didnt have a teepee between them. (the Aboriginals adapted to eating anything that was non toxic. Worms, grubs, beetles, moths, ants, you name it) so they were hard to find in large numbers, infact there were no large numbers. No one knows how many Aboriginals inhabited Australia prior to white settlement/invasion. Maybe 50,000, maybe 500,000, by the time the Government got around to counting them, there were a few thousand left. As recently as the 1970s there were a few Aboriginals in the bush that had rejected the white mans way of life. All dead now.

Tasmania, that so many of you are fascinated by, now has a population of 250,000 and falling. When White man got there in around 1800, there were 3 or 4 thousand Aboriginals there. So they held hunts and eventually herded what was left over a cliff to their deaths. When I was 10 I thought 200 years was a long time. Then I met old people whose grandparents were alive in the early 1800s and you realise just how short 200 years is in the scheme of things.

My post was not directed at the initiator of the topic, nor anyone else, rather just a reflection on the history of killing hundreds of thousands of animals for "no good reason". Western society has moved on from these pathetic religious rituals. What we have elsewhere is huge populations whose education remains firmly in the stone age. If these people continue to remain uneducated and have no forward thinking leaders, they are one step away from Human Sacrifice IMO.

I like the Bison. There is one in the W.A. Museum. Whenever I go over there, I always have a look at it. Its as big as a bloody Elephant, I fell in love with it at first sight.

I do wonder what they taste like. The hide is tremendous, enough bones to be productive as fertiliser. If the meat is tasty, surely they could become a commercial sustainable resource. I guess the bastards eat a lot though. How many to an acre could you run? Maybe just 1 or less id guess?

hmmmm.  i love my modern stuff.  wouldn't want to do without it.  i do wonder if we are better off as a society now that we are "enlightened" and have grown out of our pathetic religious rituals. 
other than in protest against something, there are not to many things other than pathetic religious rituals that unite a people.  unless their religion includes things like human head hunting, i'd say they are better off left with theirs, than we are having given up ours
.....The greatest changes occur in their country without their cooperation. They are not even aware of precisely what has taken place. They suspect it; they have heard of the event by chance. More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....

We might even be better off if some groups had more aggressively practiced head hunting.

Say, I don't know, Aboriginals?

Now i could be wrong and correct me if i am but isn't Hindu a form of  Buddhism?  Just curious if so they believe in reincarnation and that if you lead a bad life karma will make you come back as an animal.  Well if so i guess in theory at least some of these people could be munching down on fatty tasting dad, chewy mom, and the ever popular sweet and tender grandparents. Just a thought guys but looking like cannibalism might still be practiced on a large scale.

"Thousands of terrified buffaloes will have their heads cut off by drunken devotees," said Bardot, according to Sky News.

I wonder how she managed to escape?

 :-D

I don't know what the problem here is....buffalo over there are like our cows or sheep, they just decided to do it all in one big party (although I think the party is wrong).  They still eat the buffalos.

To compare that to the american west is...well...uninformed.  But that is ok, we understand   :-D. 

Boy, I remember my big american herd-an-indian-off-a-cliff manhood initiation!  Those were fond memories.  The blood curdling screams, the horror, the carnage!  Ahh...makes me feel alive again!!
