PETA In China
Where was PETA in this story? No demonstrations? No news coverage?
According to wildlife groups, China is the main market for illegally traded
exotic species, which are eaten or used in traditional medicine. Pangolins are
in great demand because their meat is consider a delicacy and their scales are
thought to help mothers breastfeed their babies.
Hmmm. That's not all.
When coastguard officials boarded the 25-metre craft, it was reportedly deserted
and stripped of identification papers. They found more than 200 crates full of
animals, many so dehydrated in the tropical sun that they were close to death.
The animals - which weighed 13 tonnes - were taken to port, doused with
water and sent to an animal welfare centre.
I've missed the outrage over this. Where are the picketers and demonstrators? Oops! I forgot. In China they kill you for demonstrating. Those lefties make communism sound so appealing I nearly forgot they kill millions of their own to stay in power. How silly of me.
Just an observation.
