To be fair, is there such a thing as an illegal wet market?
Yes, usually exotic animals sold underground. Things you wouldn't even dream of harming let alone eating. Some markets operate in plain sight, depending on how stringent authorities are.
I had a friend who use to live in Thailand. He use to live a street away from one.
It was a shoe shop at the front of the shop. With the wet market out back.
He couldn't work out why he kept seeing people come out with small parcels wrapped in brown paper. A funny way to wrap shoes he thought, until one day he asked.
That's a serious issue. They need to seek professional help.The small child next door that has daily marathon tantrums that can last 6-7 hours to the early AM. The screaming would be the ones you would expect from somone that was tied to table and slowly been cut to pieces
