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.
