China is allowing the sale of captive-bred tiger skins and body parts despite signing up to a UN agreement which calls for such trade to be banned, a London-based environmental lobby group claimed on Tuesday.

China does not care, they make promises and then break them, because the only thing on their minds is how much money they will make!

Don't buy ANYTHING "made in China"! Only the loss of profits will make any difference in how they treat any living thing.

China (not most of it's people!!) seems to be about the worst in the world when it comes to animal legislation.
You'd think they'd want to join up with the *civilized* world!
Well, gotta boycott!

China is in violation of an international trade agreement, and the UN simply sits back. Is anyone else sick of China's ability to do what it wants, break agreements, and KNOW they will get away with it.

Asians are the worst.
They have no compassion for animals and don't care about the environment.
They are just greedy bastards, that have (almost) destroyed their part of the planet and now are starting to destroy the rest.
Is not about racism, is about the things they do.

The only thing the chinese know how to do well is lie. Don't trust them and don't think that any agreement made will be honored.

There are other countries that couldn't get away with it. Why does China.... as usual, it must be all about money having influence.

Every time you hear someone touting the benefits of ''TRADITIONAL MEDICINE," I hope you'll remember this. Tigers are killed for their bones, livers and other body parts.

It's STUPID.

I read that the Chinese people are dying of rabies from eating dogs and cats! this is no doubt attributed to their heartless regard of God's creatures. Maybe China will be wiped off the planet for her animal and human cruelties!

Greedy, greedy country with no respect for life. China was on my want to see list, but now I will never travel to China because of how they treat animals, nor will I buy anything made in China. If is says China on it, it goes back on the shelf. I refuse to support this type of abuse to animals.
