That does it: I'm NOT going to India.

Take care,

Looks like rat farm. Do you think the rats are harvested? If so, for what purpose?

I would hate to think of "for what purpose".

Rats are honored citizens or something like that in India.

The Rat is an honoured chosen companion of one of the major Hindu Gods (I'm not sure which one, but odds-on favourites are Vishnu and Shiva). There is a temple in India devoted entirely to the worship of the rat demi-god, and I suspect this photo was taken there. Re-incarnation is a pillar of Hinduism, and even some lowly animals are respected and well treated, as they might be "occupied", so-to-speak.

As for the abhorrent nature of the photograph, rest assured most Indians find our butchering and consuming cattle to be most disturbing.
