Turtle Thursday: THIS STILL GOES ON?!?!


Yes, that's EXACTLY what it looks like. A red ear slider hatchling encased in a sealed plastic envelope of colored water. They are sold LIVE, supposedly for good luck. I know those poor little guys have no luck.

I've seen similar stories before, but here's a recent one from facebook:

On a commercial street in China, little tortoises are found packaged as souvenir!!! These little tortoises are still alive and swimming inside a herbal solution. The store owner says it can live for 1-3 months. 5 RMB a piece.

This is too cruel and unacceptable!!! God knows how many little lives were slowly suffocated to silent death; their fate sealed in a bag!!!

Has the commercial world no more other ideas to make money!!!

Please help "Share" this. Hopefully some media or government will pick up this news and step in to stop this animal cruelty! Perhaps find the real victim and put an end to such uncivilized act.

Please help this little lives. Small as they may be, they are still lives!!!!!!!!!!
