Stop Fruit Bat Trade - ForceChange


Animals  (tags: animalwelfare, endangered, Indonesian fruit bats )

In Sumatra, Indonesian fruit bats are being sold as a traditional medicine cure for asthma. Unfortunately this practice has endangered the species and contributed to a significant reduction in their numbers.

MOST DEFINITELY SIGNED!!!

In my city, they sell bats for food. And the way they kill the bats is also barbaric. If you go to a traditional market, you can hear the bats screaming while they tear off their wings!!! It's really a gut-wrenching sight.. There are some people (me included) that's trying to get them to stop selling bats for food, but it's very difficult, because a 'specially cooked-bat' is considered some sort of local heritage in here...

Thanks so much, Zora...

This penchant for killing animals for "natural medicine" is horrific and needs to stop. All the most beautiful, gentle and peace-loving creatures of our planet are being systematically wiped out, and mainly for "natural medicine" or to satisfy humankind's greed for money and trophies. What is the matter with these people? I just don't get it. Let's get rid of the people who do this and keep the animals, right??!
