Best Place to Buy a Live Goat (2008)


Stumbling upon a concrete farm—or public slaughterhouse—seems more New Delhi than New York City. If you find selecting a living lobster unsettling, you may not want to brave VIVERO ONE-STOP LIVE MARKET. The less squeamish can handpick Thanksgiving dinner while unsuspecting turkeys scuffle about. Upon selection, butchers grab their legs and whisk them away upside down. Animal lovers and activists may be tempted to buy up the livestock, also including lamb, rabbits, doves, and ducks, to release in Central Park. Surprisingly, PETA doesn't seem to have discovered it yet.
