A great quiz question for you, what is the national animal of Tibet? Too easy right? Well the Yak, once critical to the nomadic traditions and lives of the majority Tibetan population, no longer enjoys the open grasslands, freely moving from Winter and Summer pasture. Like Tibet’s herders it too has been incarcerated.

Readers and subscribers of our Blog will know that we’ve reported on how Tibetan nomads are being forced from their lands and homes by the Chinese regime into concentration settlements. What happens to the many herds of Yaks left behind  you may wonder?

They are confiscated and sold off at knockdown cost to Chinese-owned companies, who fence the Yaks, mass breed them for slaughter. Apart from meat and leather, textile and medicinal products are processed. These are then marketed and distributed across occupied Tibet and sold to Tibetans at a considerable profit.

Not content with destroying the lifestyle of Tibet’s nomads the Chinese regime and equally corrupt  companies are profiting from the theft and sale of Yaks and related products. As always it is the Tibetan people who are exploited. With those detained in newly built ‘socialist paradise villages’ having to buy Yak meat, sourced from herds which once had been theirs for generations!
