Classics case of first world egocentrism. We sit behind computer screens claiming to be appalled by this endangered cobra’s head in a bottle, but on the other side of the world, a dirt poor villager with no hopes of finding work can feed his family with rice for a month by killing one king cobra. It bothers me as well to see a king decimated like this, but rest assured, if I were in the same position as those villagers, I will kill them too to feed my family. Has anyone been appalled enough as of yet to send a little money over to Asia?
