Cruel China at It Again: Allows Tourists to Pay To Have LIVE Animals Thrown From Trucks to Be Mauled By Live Tigers

Yes, this isn’t a joke. Sadly it’s all true. But what do you expect from this cruelest country on Earth? I’m always a little surprised when a new story comes out, but I’m starting to not be anymore.

I need to repeat that these are LIVE animals. Some as big as OX. So they will literally dump a live OX or cow from a truck and then sicko tourists and their sick Chinese counterparts have a good laugh.

Here’s a little from the article below. The article actually has pictures and I encourage you to visit them. Just read this and you’ll be blown away once again by the cruelty of China:

EYES rolling and squealing with fear, the cow is forced from the back of a moving pick-up truck into the dirt.

There is an explosion of dust, blood and flashing cameras as an ambush of tigers moves in for the kill, tearing great strips off the animal's back as it struggles for a second, then goes still, bar the odd twitch.

A minute later there is little left of the ton-weight heifer except a scrap of skin, a mess of bones and a puddle of blood.”

“To watch a live chicken thrown to the tigers costs £2.50. You can also opt for an £8 duck, an £8 pheasant or a £40 sheep. Strapped for cash? You can choose raw steak for 80p. But the prize is a cow or ox, which costs £120.”

More about Cruel China can also be found at the links below. The first link is especially telling as it provides actual photos of the reality of animal torture in China:

EYES rolling and squealing with fear, the cow is forced from the back of a moving pick-up truck into the dirt.

There is an explosion of dust, blood and flashing cameras as an ambush of tigers moves in for the kill, tearing great strips off the animal's back as it struggles for a second, then goes still, bar the odd twitch.

A minute later there is little left of the ton-weight heifer except a scrap of skin, a mess of bones and a puddle of blood.

Seconds from death... a truck ready to dump the doomed cow

But this is not some wild savannah. Welcome instead to China's latest tourist craze - paying up to £120 a time to feed live animals to ravenous Siberian tigers. From four packed buses goggle-eyed tourists shoot roll after roll of film, and even clap. One Westerner waves a roll of notes at the tour guide, excitedly gesturing at the bizarre menu pinned to the wall.

A chicken is gobbled up by one of the ravenous tigers

To watch a live chicken thrown to the tigers costs £2.50. You can also opt for an £8 duck, an £8 pheasant or a £40 sheep. Strapped for cash? You can choose raw steak for 80p. But the prize is a cow or ox, which costs £120. The Heilongjiang Siberian Tiger Park in Harbin, Northern China, is becoming one of the country's top destinations. The park is home to more than 700 of these huge animals - also known as Amur or Manchurian tigers. There are just 400 left in the wild. One tourist who got more than he bargained for from the hourlong £4 tour was American Paul Gray, 40. "I was expecting a safari, not a bloodbath," he said. "But people were baying for more. One of the guides threw a chicken and it landed on one of the support vehicles. A tiger leapt on to the roof and gobbled it up in one go. I was horrified."

Last year, Wang Wei, of China's Wildlife Conservation Department, promised to "put an end to shows of feeding beasts of prey with live animals". But, today, it is still very much business as usual.
