Sickening Moment:Tiger Is Beaten Around The Head With A Stick, Whilst Families Sit For Photo’s

“What the hell gives humans the right to treat animals, in such an appalling & brutal manner; just for the sake of entertainment??  And why the hell is China allowed to get away with virtually no animal welfare rules; when the rest of the world has to comply?? The people in the video actually think this is fun! This is no where close to fun, it’s just down right animal abuse, for the sake of entertainment. The world is losing tigers at an alarming rate, yet in China it appears anything goes!! It’s well overdue that they should have similar laws to other Countries in place, to protect animals; yet China seem oblivious & turn a blind eye to such rules. I thought this kind of thing was supposed to have stopped, how stupid am I for even thinking such a thing!! Please note, I do not intend this to offend any Chinese individuals; apart from the ones in the video…and those who make the laws that govern your Country!”

“In January last year, the Chinese government banned zoos from putting on cruel animal performances after increased pressure from outraged animal rights groups. A study by Animals Asia in 2010 found bears were often whipped and beaten with sticks, elephants were prodded with metal hooks, while tigers and lions were made to endure chronic pain by being de-fanged and de-clawed  But sure enough, only a few months after the ban came into force, some zoos were found to still be flouting the law…where is the law…why are they still allowed to beat an animal for entertainment? What about health & safety rules for the public? But if they are stupid enough to stand so close to a tiger, who could easily rip an arm off a child with one swipe; I have no sympathy!”

 ” I sent the video to a couple of welfare groups but have yet to receive any reply, so watch this space! Please also sign the petitions at the bottom of this page, thanks!”

Shocking video emerged today showing a dazed and confused tiger being smacked in the head with sticks while being forced to pose for photographs with tourists

Cruel: A docile tiger is smacked around the head as tourists, one of them nonchalantly smoking a cigarette, pose for pictures with the animal
Bashed: The tiger, which appears to have been drugged, is seen slumped on a table as excited parents and children queue up to sit next to the endangered animal

The tiger, which appears to have been drugged, is seen slumped on a table as excited parents and children queue up to sit next to the endangered animal.

To ensure it keeps facing the camera, two men armed with white sticks bash it in the face and neck.

It is not clear where or when the video was taken or who is organising the photographs, which are very likely to have been laid on for financial gain.

But in a posting on liveleak.com, where the footage was uploaded, it claims to have taken place in the popular beach resort of Beidaihe in the Chinese city of Qinhuangdao, possibly at a zoo.

One commenter said: ‘I was seriously hoping this video would end with one of those two guys mauled.’

Emergence of the video comes just days after terrified lions were pelted with snowballs by by laughing visitors, including children, at Hangzhou Zoo in Zhejiang Province, eastern China.

In January last year, the Chinese government banned zoos from putting on cruel animal performances after increased pressure from outraged animal rights groups.

A study by Animals Asia in 2010 found bears were often whipped and beaten with sticks, elephants were prodded with metal hooks, while tigers and lions were made to endure chronic pain by being defanged and declawed.

But months after the ban came into force, some zoos were found to still be flouting the law.

For All Dog Owners: China Refuses To Halt Production Of Chicken Jerky Dog Treats

Comments Off on For All Dog Owners: China Refuses To Halt Production Of Chicken Jerky Dog Treats

“Sorry this is late, I’m still playing catch up from being in hospital”

As pet owners prepare to stuff stockings and buy holiday treats for their beloved dogs, it is important to remember the potential risks in some dog treats.

All the over nation there have been reports of dogs getting sick and even dying from chicken jerky dog treats, many of which are made in China.

Now the Chinese government has finally responded and says it will not halt production of these treats.

Since 2007, the FDA has become aware of an increasing number of illnesses due to jerky pet treats, mostly chicken jerky. The FDA issued a report in September in which they stated, “Over the past 18 months the reports have contained information on 360 canine deaths and one feline death.”

The FDA has been investigating the issue and has yet to find a definitive cause. The majority of dog treats are made in China, and the amount imported from China to North America in the last decade has increased immensely.

Rachel Chambers of Morgan Hill, California lost her dog Cali in May because of chicken treats. “It’s been sad and hard on our family, but I think what’s been harder is to understand why almost seven months later there’s more dead dogs and nothing has changed,” Chambers said.

Bay Area Congressman Jerry McNeary reached out to the Chinese government in a letter asking them to “consider halting production of these chicken jerky treats until the FDA can determine whether or not the products contained tainted material.”

The Chinese government wrote back and stated they would not halt production. The Chinese government faulted the FDA for putting an advisory alert on its website even though the exact cause of deaths has not been found. “From the perspective of the Chinese side, there might be something wrong with the FDA’s investigation guidance,” wrote the Chinese government.

Dr. Jaspal Harika, who performed the necropsy on Cali, doesn’t agree with the Chinese government’s claim that the FDA is in the wrong. “They really know what they do. They’re one of the top scientists and research workers,” Harika said. While production of these treats has not been halted, the FDA reminds pet owners that jerky pet treats are not necessary for your pet.

“For your pet’s safety, please be cautious!!”

Chinese turn on bear bile farms

Comments Off on Chinese turn on bear bile farms

CHINESE farmers who torture caged bears by taking their bile and turning it into medicine are being met with a wave of revulsion from their own people.

Shock figures released last week show that 87 per cent of China’s 1.3 billion population are now against the evil trade.

As many as 20,000 mainly Asiatic black bears are “milked” daily for their bile, either through crude catheters or from holes left permanently open in their stomachs. It is then used to treat ailments like gallstones and liver disease.

Last week the Sunday Express launched a crusade calling for the Chinese Government to ban the practice. Already thousands of readers have signed our petition, which will be delivered to the Chinese Embassy in London. The tidal wave of opposition in China follows a series of embarrassing gaffes by those who support the industry. Fang Shuting, director of the China Association of Traditional Chinese Medicine, sparked anger last week when he claimed the bile collecting process was as harmless as “turning on a tap”.
