- Chongqing region, China -
I am simply appalled by this!
How twisted a mind someone must have to come up with a sick idea like this one?
A Chinese theme park has been heavily criticized after a defenseless pig was pushed off a tower to launch a new bungee jump ride.
It happened on Saturday, January 18 at ‘Meixin Red Wine Town’ theme park.
The helpless animal had all his four legs tied, he was then tied against his will to a bungee cord, and, to completely strip him of his dignity, they wrapped a purple cape around his neck.
The revolting video shows how the pig is being heartlessly mishandled by people who keep pulling the cords around his neck.
While the poor pig was being pulled up and down and oinking in distress, a crowd of morons was laughing, cheering, screaming, and filming the victim.
Metro reports that PETA senior vice-president of international campaigns, Mr. Jason Baker, told the BBC: ‘Pigs experience pain and fear in the same ways that we do, and this disgusting PR stunt should be illegal. ‘The Chinese public’s angry response should be a wake-up call to China’s policy-makers to implement animal protection laws immediately.’
On Weibo, the Chinese version of Twitter, animal lovers rightfully condemned the stunt after the video went viral.
Reportedly, the pig was sent to a slaughterhouse afterwards.
The poor pig was abused, ridiculed, and then killed. How can all this be allowed?
There is no punishment for animal cruelty under Chinese law.
Welcome to the year 2020 ladies and gentlemen!
