Lara, a fellow reptile lover, told me about this cruel news. 

Live Animals Being Sold as keyring

Keyring ornaments are perhaps the most useless item you’ll ever carry in your pocket or stuff in your purse — but now, thanks to an increasingly popular item being sold in China, it can easily be the cruelest, too. For the price you might expect to pay for some kitschy trinket, Chinese street vendors are selling live animals, permanently sealed in a small plastic pouch where they can survive for a short while as someone’s conversation piece. Apparently, these unimaginably inhumane keyrings are actually quite popular — and worst of all, it’s totally legal. Continue reading the real article

When I first read and saw the picture…I couldn’t stop crying…I literally cry.I couldn’t stop my tears from falling. Even writing this makes my eyes watery again. I couldn’t even put the picture here because I couldn’t stop imagining that Kame or Kroten was the one in there.

That is the sickest thing I have ever seen in my life…Don’t they have heart at all?

Yes, they are just small animals … but they are living creatures with soul!

If they don’t have feeling for animals, can they at least imagine would they like to be put in a big plastic bag, gasping for air and nothing to eat? Imagine that and then think of those poor animals.

I wish I can do something to put that cruelty to stop.
I wish I can fly to that country and free all those animals.
But I can’t 😦
All I can do  now is to share this sad news and makes more people aware of it.

I don’t know if  this petition will make a different or not, but at least it will make more people aware of this sick business. Go To The Petition.

    SICKOS… outrageous but then china has no concern of human life why will they worry about animals

    • Novroz says:

      I hope they will. I believe NOT all Chinese are that cruel.
      And the issue is not on Chinese people…more to the any people who did it

    I feel sick. I agree with everything you said. I cannot believe the depths of cruelty man can sink to. I am having trouble getting to the petition. I hope it is just my computer, but will you please check to make sure it can be reached?

    • Novroz says:

      It’s like teaching them that torturing living creatures is not a big deal 😦
      The petition is held in facebook, maybe it won’t work if you don’t open your account there. I really wish there is something I can do more than this.

    I signed the petition but did not read the article. I get the idea of what it is and I cant handle seeing that kind of detail.. Like you guys, it would make me cry and ruin the rest of my day.

    I think it is because they may view these things as good luck charms. Similar to how they kill rare tigers and sharks just to eat one special part thinking it will make them somehow stronger.

    Its an ignorant thing to do.

    • Novroz says:

      In the article from the petition, it said that it will bring them luck when they animal is already died. Such a twisted idea. I can’t bear to read the whole article.

      Seeing dead animals turn into accesories already make me sick, and now this…incredibly beyond belief.

    Very cruel and sick. Humans can be such idiots sometimes.

    Have you heard of They have various petitions and causes that you can sign. I’m not sure how you can create one, but they have reportedly have had some success in changing things.

    • Kame says:

    Oh my God. This was for real? How can anyone be so asinine? And so insensitive? This was just the height of endurance.

  6. Barb says:

    Unbelievable. I’m sick.

  7. Asop says:

    Gila, jadi gantungan kunci?? 😯

  8. Tony says:

    This makes me so angry!!! These people deserve torture then when they’ve had enough more torture. Make them suffer the same way. I am disgusted by this news of these sick & cruel people.

  9. Tony says:

    The people who buy them are no better than those who make & sell them. I wish I could buy them all so I could cut open the bags & set them all free. I am still really angry!!!

  10. Novroz says:

    My thought is same with you, Tony. Those people, both buyer and seller should taste their own medicine, they should be put in that plastic bag too.

  11. lavenderbay says:

    Unfortunately, this kind of scam has probably been going on forever. One Asian version of it is to capture wild birds, stuff them into a big cage, and take them to market, knowing that kind-hearted passersby will buy a bird and release it. Or how about North American puppy mills? Breeders know that their clients will buy a puppy just to remove it from such awful living conditions.

    It IS sick and cruel… but not new.

    • Kame says:

      I know about the breeder and the wild birds…but I think this one is the cruelest of all…because those people condemned those animals to die…and before they died, they were tortured with lack of air and food.

    This is horrible and what a coincidence. I bought a book today called “Animal Liberation” by an Australian animal rights activist. He says what I have been thinking for a long time. Maybe, yes, an animal can not think the same way as we do but they can feel. And most of all they can feel pain, just like we can. No being that can feel pain or be hurt should ever be treated different, with less care or less respect. He calls this speciesism, like racism, just against other species. I would like to become an animal rights activist. We all should.

    • Novroz says:

      That’s an amazing concept. II agree with him! We should respect all animals as much as we respect other human being.
      I’d love to become an animal activist as well.

  13. Ronan says:

    That is terrible! What next? It is encouraging to know that there are people like you Novia who care so much and are prepared to protest at cruelty like this. Thank you for this post.

  14. Irina says:

    That is so sad! It’s unbelievable how cruel people can be!
    Some will argue that that is the only way some people can make living.. but then following this concept, people who do ugly, cruel things to animals, birds, and even other people, can always argue ‘Well, I am just surviving’.
    What kind of world are we living in? Who gave us rights to be ’the rulers of the Earth’. Twisted people, twisted minds!
    And what can I do?! I just feel so angry and hopeless!

  15. Emily says:

    My stomach just bottomed out. Petition signed. Thanks for sharing this, Novia.

  16. That’s just sick. There is no good karma from killing and torture.

  17. gopika says:
