signed and noted, this sort of cruelty will never stop,and why wont it stop? greedy uncaring bastards make millions on the suffering of these poor wee animals,I honestly believe no matter what gets done to try and stop this it will always go on,we fight these cases every single day,and yes we have made a difference,but we cannot change people,i would love to hang everyone who ever did an evil deed towards an animal,not only those who kill but also those who pay them to do it

This story is so sadistic, vile and evil. We wonder why our world is so cruel? Well, it's stories like this that show that humans have no respect, or compassion for other humans or for any living creature and until we do our world continues to spin MORE out of control. This is blatant animal abuse and the sickos that do this kind of horrific animal abuser must be caught and tried. Laws must be very severe(not a slap on the wrist punishment) and then THEY MUST BE ENFORCED FOR OUR WORLD TO CHANGE FOR THE BETTER FOR ALL OFF US INCLUDING ANIMALS.

Friends if you come back,I have to tell you Australia is in magnific relations with China and is planning to grow pigs on their inside region apparently - They are happy together,apparently, and a chinese bank is going to give financiation to a project and so on... I think they will compete with US for Chinese market. Does cruelty in Australia would mean more cruelty in china?
Countries are not exactly fighting cruelty necessarily , they are more interested in making friends with China for what we see.

Thanks Simone .Signed previously with several other petitions.No matter how many petitions we sign to end cruelty to animals in China ,it still continues.We should avoid buying Chinese clothing and products ,as difficult as it may be,they floods our markets and are cheaper than our own manufactured products.We should be prepared to spend a little more and boycott their exports.There are plenty of exports from other countries as well as products made in our own..Buy them,and buggar China.

For every action there is a reaction. According to the law of karma, if we cause pain and suffering to other living beings, we must endure pain and suffering in return, both individually and collectively. We reap what we sow, in this life and the next, for nature has her own justice. No one can escape the law of karma.

The more that I see and hear the more disgusted I am to be sharing the title of human being. I have a family of Racoons ~ a mother and her 3 remaining babies of 5 ~ that I feed every night. I also make sure that they have clean drinking water. She sits up and talks to me as if to say thanks for feeding her young. How can any feeling humans do these horrific and disgusting things to a living soul and be part of our human race???
