The punishment was far from strong enough, although maybe that does show some hope for China and her people ---- poor tigers! Thanks for info!

Disgusting and sad! When will this madness end ? Education is so important ! I'm sad for this baby who will be removed from our eyes and placed God knows where. Does anyone more about this ? Or follows what is going to happen to this cub ? If I had enough money I'd go there and take that cub away from their insanity and find a sanctuary where he could live and be in peace for the rest of his life.

What is the matter with people, not only in the US, but world wide, that they do not value a life, be it human or animal? Who do you think belongs in a cage?

Oh, China, China! Their government is so oblivious but a small ray of hope is that the Chinese people and animal advocacy organizations are becoming more and more vocal and active. Hopefully, the government will listen. With the older generations dying off, a more modern, humane citizenry may make their voices heard.

If China does not have any laws towards cruelty to animals, why was this group fined? Is this just a lie to appease the public?

Glad to see some of the Chinese people are outraged by this. It will take a lot more to spread awareness. They need to adopt animal cruelty laws and punish those that abuse animals.

These people should be publicly whipped in the townsquare until they can't sit down, then they should be stoned by the townspeople. There is no excuse for animal abuse and there is no excuse for letting these people get by with it. It is absolutely mindblowing to me that people like this have no feelings whatsoever for other living beings. Absolutely Mindblowing!!!!

Tragic!!! But I am pleased that some Chinese people reacting against it!
China has to implement anti-cruelty to animals. Because even if cruelty to animals exists everywhere, China seems to have a record of it!
Thanks Cher for this great post
