1000+ cats saved from Chinese restaurants

Volunteers in China have rescued more than 1,000 cats that they found crammed in crates on the side of the road after the truck that was carrying them crashed, The Daily Mail reports. The felines were originally meant to be sold to the restaurants of Guangdong in the Hunan province, China Daily reports.

Photos show the animals being fed while still in the crates, before they were taken to the Changsha Small Animal Protection Association to be treated.

The Daily Mail reports that cats, considered a delicacy, often spend up to two months squeezed into tiny crates before they are sold by the pound or in bulk to restaurant owners. Villagers in the countryside raise the cats to make extra money. The cats are kept alive before they are selected by each diner, much as one would select a lobster in a seafood restaurant, according to the report.

Let's not forget they also skin or boil them still alive.

Between ivory. rhino horn. tiger penises and bear bladders add little Mr. Boots to the list of offenses that make the Chinese so fucking loathsome in the arena of just not giving a fuck about the rest of the planet. What the fuck are these people going to do once they've wiped out every species and extracted every mineral from the earth? Oy...sorry for the rant but there are certain things that make me insane.

That's what scares me R2. If they are that brutal to animals what would they do to enemy combatants and civilians? Remember that country will be the next likely superpower.

They raise dogs as food and for fur. They imported St. Bernards to breed for this purpose. Boycott Chinese goods please. Boycott Walmart. If made in China is all that is available, do without.

Cats are no different than chickens or pigs when it comes to eating, as distasteful as I find it. However, they should be killed in a humane fashion. If it's true about skinning and boiling them alive, that's reprehensible.

Totally true R8 and, yes, I agree with you. To some people it's normal to eat dogs and cats but at least humanely kill them and don't just throw them in boiling oil and listen to them scream.

by those people will literally eat anythingreply 1001/16/2013

r2 - I'm not disputing your claims. I just didn't know about the live cooking part. As I said, it's reprehensible.

I maintain that eating cats and dogs is a cultural thing but they should be killed humanely.

I love Mr. Boots and Milo as much as anyone, but I was brought up here in the US. When you break it down, there's really no difference between them and goats, chickens, etc.

Thanks R2/R8. The NYT has articles of late on a weekly basis regarding the extermination of elephants and rhinos in Africa so that some middle class citizen of China can save face and get an erection. Of course this is not just a Chinese issue but it seems that it is just done on an almost industrial level when they do it.

Years ago there was a documentary on HBO about animal cruelty. It had a segment that showed a Chinese cook skinning a cat alive and then throwing it in water while it cried in distress. I will never forget it.

HBO has a good record of documentaries exposing animal abuse. Last year they had one on Americans and their relationship to dogs and how at times there is a schizm between how we cherish dogs but at the same time condone a system where millions of them are euthanized each year. There was an appalling scene in a municipal "shelter" in the South that showed a worker leading dogs to a big dumpster and lifting them up and into it. The top was then closed and a hose was attached and they were gassed. As the camera pulled back you could hear the cries of the dogs inside. The scene ended with a trash truck backing up to the dumpster and the bodies of the dogs being dumped into the back. The Chinese are blatantly vicious in their disregard for other forms of life but in other countries abuse happens as well maybe not as overwhelming systematic.

Examples of war crimes committed by Chinese forces include:

in 1937 near Shanghai, the killing, torture and assault of Japanese POWs and Chinese civilians accused of collaboration, were recorded in photographs taken by Swiss businessman Tom Simmen. (In 1996, Simmen's son released the pictures, showing Nationalist Chinese soldiers committing summary executions by decapitation and shooting, as well as public torture.)

the Tungchow Mutiny of August 1937; Chinese soldiers recruited by Japan mutinied and switched sides in Tōngzhōu, Beijing, before attacking Japanese civilians and killing 280.

Nationalist troops in Hubei Province, during May 1943, ordered whole towns to evacuate and then "plundered" them; any civilians who refused and/or were unable to leave, were killed.

The Japanese aren't exactly a walk in the park either.

by those people will literally eat anythingreply 2801/16/2013

R28, yes. The Japanese War crimes and dubious "scientific"experiments on POWs were certainly as bad if not worse than those of the Nazis, but somehow we never discuss those.

by those people will literally eat anythingreply 2901/16/2013

Because that was the past, r29. We can't change the past, but we crucially need to concentrate on the future before China completely destroys the environment.

Any animal with a range exclusively in Southeast Asia has virtually no hope of survival at this point.

And that's not even mentioning the poaching trade in Africa that China profits from for folk medicines.

All of you have eaten cat.

If you eat Chinese food, you'll most likely wind up eating cat sooner or later.

Most chinese restaurants buy some frozen and canned goods from manufactures in China.

My college aged daughter spent last summer in Shanghai as part of a study abroad. Many of the Chinese citizens had dogs (especially Siberian Huskies, Golden Retreivers, and Poodles) trying to emulate Westerners. And perplexingly, many stores had pet rabbits hopping around. Their news stories featured videos of cute kittens.

So not all Chinese are cat torturing scum.

R45 True,how true. The cultural relativism crap is really hilarious. In Western society, cats and dogs are pets. With dogs not only being man's best friend but also aiding blind people as their set of eyes.So those who call the Chinese are on to something. However those cute little bunny rabbits are eaten all over the world oddly enough!Except in the good old USA, though that is changing.......

I would agree with that. Unfortunately, much of the meat we eat isn't killed humanely, even though we hope that it us and make strides for it to become a reality. Remember, we still do animal experimentation in the US. That's almost worse than being skinned alive, IMO. Enough looking down our noses on other cultures about this. It's insanely hypocritical, and an American stereotype.

Most Jews still 'don't' eat pork, hon. It's forbidden in the Torah - any cloven-hooved animals. Different cultures adhere to strict rules for different reasons, even if said reasons descend from superstition... but go ahead and make fun of the Indians worshiping cows.

I haven't been around a lot of farm animals for very long, however I hear there's a distinct difference in terms of personality. Cats and dogs, we know, have distinct personalities and some intelligence. Same with horses to a lesser degree and cows to a much lesser degree. Apparently pigs are as intelligent or moreso than dogs and cats. Something to consider.

However, I've heard poultry has no personality, no individual sense of intellect. Same for most seafood except for dolphins and whales.

by those people will literally eat anythingreply 6201/16/2013

r57 still doesn't get it.

It's not just cats and dogs. It's rhinos. Tigers. River dolphins. Elephants. Manta rays. Sharks. Owls. Sea turtles. Bears. Cobras. Fruit bats. Migratory birds. Giant salamanders. Whales. Any animal living in the ocean. The list is endless. They're not humanely killed. There is no controlled hunting. There is no controlled fishing. There is no forethought of sustainability. The Chinese take, take, take and are not monitoring breeding or safe hunting practices. Poachers in Africa killed 26,000 elephants for Chinese folk medicine alone in 2006. The air in Beijing has been labeled "hazardous" because of the sheer pollution.

This isn't a matter of fluffy Miss Sissyboodles or cute little puppies. This isn't a matter of Obama eating dog as a kid. Animal cruelty laws are non-existent or lax at best in China. Chickens, pigs and cows may be slaughtered in America for fast food, but farm animals are not critically endangered species.

China is an environmental disaster. I'm not a PETA freak. You cannot take, take, take from this world without making sure everything you take has a chance to sustain itself.

Here, read this article about a tiger farm in China. I dare you not to throw up.

Believe it or not, Islam is the most animal-friendly religion and has the strongest animal ethics. Not treating an animal with compassion or kindness is considered a sin. Hunting animals for sport is considered haram as is animal neglect or abuse. Goatherders and shepherds are particularly held with much reverence. Judaism also is a very strong animal-friendly religion. Christianity is dead last.

Thanks R64 for bringing up the tiger farm issue. The rationale for the farms is that it reduces the "need" for poaching in the wild. Of course if the fucking assholes who can't get a hard on without a pinch of penis would just take Viagra then this whole problem would be solved. The sight of tigers, one of the most majestic animals, being bred for slaughter makes me insane.
