I really HATE this man.


                      Monkey Training for a Circus by Chinese photographer¬†Yongzhi Chu: The winner of the nature category shows a monkey being trained for circus in Suzhou, Anhui Province. The town is considered the home of the Chinese circus with more than 300 troupes¬†

This photograph makes my blood boil; it demonstrates what I most detest about certain humans.

Can you guess what I'd like to do to him?

  2. I agree with you Cro, and find it a difficult image to look at. Animal cruelty is a much debated and apparently complex issue, but we all contribute to it every time we eat meat or purchase a new pair of boots. I have a friend who saves some of these monkeys by forcefully taking them from the trainer and keeping them in a sanctuary. He's a big guy in many ways.

    1. Training any animal to obey instructions, whether it be a dog, a horse, or sadly even a monkey, is far better done with kindness and love. I once had a neighbour who expected his untrained dog to round up his herd of cows. The poor dog just scattered them everywhere, then the farmer would call him back and beat him. I wanted to punch his lights out.

  3. How easy for a man his size to be cruel to something so small and defenceless. He wants shooting.

    1. Some people appear very big when they have a whip or an AK47 in their hands.

  4. Awful Cro. Reminds me of many years ago when in Istanbul, I looked out of the hotel window early in the morning to see a man walking across the street leading two brown bears in chains. The scene haunts me still.

  8. Agree some men are so brave with a weapon in their hands when faced with a defenseless animal.

    A case could be made for bringing back public flogging. Or the stocks.

  9. The fear in that face is clear to see. The face of the other animal we cannot see.

  10. What would I do to him? I'd chain to that bicycle and make him carry it round wherever he went for a year or two.

  11. Tears stung my eyes looking at that photo. The poor little monkey's face upturned and that bastard walking towards him. I'd like to inflict some permanent painful damage to him.
