ill tell you what, its stories like these that wake you up and realize what kind of world we live in? somewhere along the way humans lost all respect for the creatures we SHARE this earth with. I understand the need to eat and keep our families fed but we should show a little more respect to these animals. im not an eco-nut its just some of the things we do are not necessary.
This just shows how low of human beings the chinese are
Im not speaking of your family. So try to turn it down a notch and be objective.
Out side of North Korea, what country has had more accusations of Human Rights violations than any other?
Its to be expected they would treat animals with much less respect.
As soon as the countries starts to value life, and act like it, or even animal life for that matter, they will have my respect, until then....... not going to happen.
You should know being from England. You didnt give us any respect in the Colonies, so we took it. And now have the greatest nation in the world!
Washington, D.C., December 8, 2010 – Congressman Jim Moran, Virginia Democrat, announced today that the “Truth in Fur Labeling Act,” legislation which would crack down on the illegal dog and cat fur trade has passed the Senate and is on its way to the President’s desk for his signature. The bill, authored by Moran, passed the House unanimously in July and had been awaiting Senate action which occurred late yesterday.

What a truly heart wrenching story.
I am convinced that people have been genetically engineered by other worldly beings as some sick science experiment. We don't act like other animals and have brains that enable us to do horrible things for no reason other than to satisfy warped desires. Let's face it, we don't fit into the Earth's ecological system either. We consume and spread trash everywhere - even in space.
(Please let Nibiru be real and give the Earth back to the animals without the human scum.)

I agree, just looking at it from both sides, you shouldn't generalise, but generally emotions run high on subjects such as animal abuse/suffering/ill treatment etc and so people will lash out generally spraying bullets across the area! Not saying it's right and I myself am guilty of it, just saying it happens.
I should imagine this is like the fur trade and ivory trade, actually it was the rich and funny enough mainly western rich, that got hold of this stuff and so fuelled the trade. I don't know if its the same with Chinese medicine, but I do know a few shops that are open locally to me so there must be a demand. Probably these new age hippy smear organic cow sh1t on me its good for the skin types!
I for one might start protesting outside these shops! Raise awareness and my local profile from psychotic highly dangerous extremist level to at any moment he is going to kill us all level!
