China: live turtles in bags sold as key rings

Published

on



http://www.euronews.com/ Living turtles, fish and salamander in tiny bags of water are being sold in Beijing as key rings for children.

To the horror of animal rights activists, the sale of live animals as trinkets is a growing trend in China.

A vendor at Beijing market said “I sell fifty of these a day!”

“I bought one because my child wanted one”, a mother explained

The bags are so small that the creatures can barely move inside and critics say they are likely to die within weeks.

The price tag is little more than the cost of a few sweets.

Although animal rights groups have highlighted the cruelty of these living toys, there is no law in China preventing their sale.

    Wow they must be suffering not only in the small space but sheer anxiety, no air and the dye. I mean what’s the purpose of this they’re doomed to die with a day or two. Throw it out after? Eat it?

    China is the cruelest place on Earth to animals. The general public has zero empathy even for their fellow humans. A real dystopian culture.

    WTF? Who does this to live animals? Only a society that has no idea about All lives mattering! Why would any parent buy a baby a novelty with a live animal knowing that the poor creature will be shaken to death!! THIS IS ANIMAL CRUELTY X 1,000!
