It's so sad that there are over a billion Chinese , perpetuating this horrific treatment toward animals. Because the Western world has long sold out to China, no nation will stand up to them.
The issue of animal rights is not even a subject in the UN concerning China.If the world was not so economically tired to China, any other country would be brought to their knees in environmental , and animal violations.

By the way....I sent this to a friend in Hong Kong.....she'll help circulate it there. I know a few Chinese in HK...they are very ignorant of the overall impact of what they eat....yes, really, they are!

Firstly, the pangolin is endangered. Secondly, the capture, torture, and sale needs to be addressed yesterday. Thirdly, boycott Chinese products. They're everywhere. Simply read the labels. If the consumer stops buying this not fairly traded product, the effect will eventually reach them. Poor creatures.

Bird's nest soup, shark fin soup, dogs, cats, and now pangolin soup/meat. Is there anything they won't eat??? Can't they raise regular farm animals to eat? We are pulling all the sea creatures out of the oceans, all the wildlife out of our wilderness, and even the forests themselves. Soon there will be nothing left but man and we will then end up eating each other! That is if the world doesn't get destroyed by us before we eat everything else in it!! STOP having babies and adopt those needing parents. Our world has far, far, far too many people and we're far, far,far too greedy and selfish!!!

Let's not get nation-hating while we eat our tuna - poor pangolins - let's just ask them to be aware! (that doesn't sound like me does it - oh well once in a while I have to recognize my own foibles and give another a break!)
