Seems like the rest of the world is allowing China to get away with MURDER! It is a vile and inhumane to Trade in the life of any animal and its body parts. We live in the 21st century but China is still not prepared to accept this and respect the life of animals as many other Countries of our planet do. Human beings eh!!!!

There has to be a world wide ban that is actually ENFORCED, so that these "animals' can't get away with the continued cruel treament of animals. Heartbreaking. Noted

If they are, I wouldn't be the least bit surprised since they've committed numerous atrocities against the enironment and animals and are more than capable of a multitudes more.

Fed up with China and anything that comes out of that country. True barbarians.
Walmart shoppers, please think before you put a foot in the door. Let us boycott a regime, such as the Chinese
government who refuse to educate and/or enlighten their people stuck in some medieval mentality. Say no to Chinese product and produce. And, don't forget who is China' s biggest debtor by buying their garbage on credit.

Re my comment above. I should have said "their contaminated garbage".
How do Americans like China telling the US to get their act together? This is a dangerous trading "partner",.
one that must be paid up and have nothing else to do with afterwards, in my opinion, at least.
I no longer shop at stores for frozen veggies that come from China, but they are so immoral, they mislabel all their products just to be able to sell them . Am truly disgusted with this country's practices.

This made me mad. I do like chinese people but I do not like the way they do is kill my favorite tigers, or any other animals. I also do not like they keep killing dolphins and whales.

It really seems like the trade is escalating out of control now...I wonder if the people who have any power and who are out there trying to save the Tiger will be able to stop them from becoming extinct in the wild now, this is terribly frightening.
