Personally, I think it's sick as hell.


Crazy World: Live animals in keychains

Live animals in keychains

Picture used for illustrative purpose only. (AGENCIES)

Live fish and turtles sealed in small key rings sold in subway entrances and train stations in China have got animal protection groups up in arms, reports 'Asiaone'.

Filled with coloured water, each seven centimetre-long key ring, sold at Sihuiv subway station, encapsulated either one Brazil turtle or two small kingfish.The vendors claim the water in the rings have nutrients and so the fish can live for months.

Some clients buying the key rings claim it brings them good luck, while a few others buy to free the animals.

However, no action can be taken against the sellers as "China only has a Wild Animal Protection Law," Qin explained. "If the animals are not wild animals they fall outside the law's scope," said chief of NGO Capital Animal Welfare Association.

That is sick as hell and anyone that would do that or buy it is a sick fuck. Animals have a right not to be treated that way.

I'd buy them to set them free.

WTF?!?! Maybe it's just me but I believe that all animals are inherently wild. My cockatoo is a sweet bird and she's our "feather-puppy" or "feather kid" but somewhere in the world, she has wild cousins that are not cage bound. So based on that, are they not in violation of their own laws?

Definitely sick!! How would those poor animals eat? I think the water having 'nutrients' in is most likely bs. I'd be one of the people buying them just to set the animals free. They deserve our protection. Having them in our homes to care for is one thing. Having them sealed into a plastic bag with no food or air is completely different- and cruel!
