Two videos here, I'm hoping they will work for all non-UK viewers.

The first video is dated May 2007, but it is still quite relevant. Just goes to show that nothing has happened in three years:

Exclusive Report: Horrifying Animal Abuse In China - Sky News Video Player

The second video is dated August 2010, so quite recent:

Investigation Reveals Animal Abuse Is common In China Zoos - Sky News Video Player

Personally, I think it's an utter disgrace. It's one thing to capture animals from the wild and lock them away in our more... sophisticated zoo's, and even they are questionable, but to lock animals away in small cages, to beat them into training, and to feed cows to Tigers for mere amusement...sorry, but I can't accept that as anything other than selfish and cruel.

And yeah, there is nothing anyone here can do about it, because it China allows it, and it will continue to happen, so long as people pay to see it, and by the reaction of people from the above videos, people will continue to pay for such for a very long time.

Also, before anyone gives me the speech about animals being put here for our needs, and our needs alone, save your words. There is a significant difference between having animals around for our needs (which, lets face it, only really comes down to food) when compared to what they're being put through over in China.

Feel free to discuss. I think it's damn right sickening.

Yea its selfish and cruel, totally agree. You realize that in western countries, we still have cage chickens, cruel meatworks facilities, caged pigs, very small cage, cock fights, dogs fights, and the like, so as bad as China might come across, its nothing we dont or havent done, and when you want to talk about cruelty at its purest, we are no better.Just a select few of us that really do make a difference, we would be the vegetarians........ Cruelty to animals goes far beyond what you talk about in china, and lm sorry if l find your post, racist. Humans are cruel to animals.Not just the Chineese.And l rather believe they didnt invent cruelty. Tell me are you a meat eater ? Seen the cruelty involved in a meat works plant operations ? Massively cruel. And chickens ? Massively cruel. Pigs, cruel, sheep, cruel, its incredible we operate these plants the way we do, the lack of real regulation and enforcement is the issue, mmmmm, lack of care about cruelty is why that hasnt changed.......

China is doing nothing new, hell in rome they fed humans to the lions for entertainment, l would say even china has evolved in this area !

l dont agree with what china are doing, l just think 99% of people are meat eaters, and help in the financial support of cruel systems we run, they ALWAYS justify there act by saying l didnt do it l just bought a steak in a plastic wrap its not my fault, bla bla bla, fact is you meat eaters are a massive part of the cruelty chain that could not exist without YOU meateaters !

Now most of you here are probably meat eaters so bring on the fire, my ears are burnng already ! Just remember this, lm right your wrong hahaha.

You cage chickens so that they don't wander off. Though, a lot of egg farms advertise no-cage chickens, so I'm not sure what the difference is, taste-wise.

Supposedly abuse does not taste all that great.

I don't get why people raise a stink about this. They are animals, they don't have rights like humans do. I don't like to see people abuse animals, but there should not be a law forbidding abuse because animals are property.

Technically animals fall into a very odd category at best of times under most law systems. While they are property, they are also alive, and felling which makes exact classifying odd. And you might notice most nations do have laws against animal cruelty, including China.

You might even go to extreme lenghts like the swiss.

The treatment of animals is indeed an odd and delicate subject. Yes there is a food chain, yes we need them to feed ourselves and to make clothes, but I don't think we should just abuse them for no reason. The reasons why we have the laws is because the average person probably thinks it is immoral to be cruel to an animal. Which I agree with, but I'm violently anti PETA and Greenpeace. Animals are food, thus we kill them. I think all we should form groups that advocate for plants. If PETA thinks that animals, living breathing things should not be killed for human consumption, then I think that plants, living, breathings things shouldn't be killed for that reason also.
