Since obviously animals don't suffer enough in the name of fashion, some people found new way to abuse animals.
New "fashion trend" that comes from China are these keyring ornaments that contain live animals!!
They are widely available and sold publicly in subway stations and on sidewalks. Available are living Brazil turtle or two small kingfish, sealed in an airtight package along with some colored water. One vendor claimed that the trapped creatures "can live for months inside there" because the water contains "nutrients," though veterinarians have already disputed this claim.
If people would have any common sense, they wouldn't need an opinion of the veterinarians to know this is just wrong and pure cruelty! These animals die of starvation, suffocation or trauma from being swung around or hit into other objects...
In addition - Chinese animal laws only protect wild animals, so the keychains with turtles and kingfish are entirely within the law. Hopefully not for long.
If I saw these being sold on the street I would buy them all just to free the poor animals.. And by buy I mean TAKE and leave no money, don't see no reason to give money to people like that...
And the guy that came up with this (& sellers) I would like to seal him in one of those airtight packages, add some of that colored water and lemme see him survive in there for months!
