I happen to come across this on facebook and I have to say I'm pretty disgusted with it.

Over in China, people are placing animals such as turtles in to nutrient filled bags and carrying them around as living key rings. When the creatures inside these bags die, which of course they will once the nutrients run out and if it's an air tight bag in which they can't get any air or have the space to move around freely in, it is supposedly lucky for the person carrying it around with them.

What this really is is a bunch of stupid Chinese people trying to create their own luck - of course they know the animal inside the bag is going to die - so things will just miraculously fall in to their lap so they don't have to work and earn an actual living at the expense of our animal friends.

Please sign this petition so that something can be done to stop this stupid insanity before it gets much worse and help save the life an animal.

Ugh....I signed the petition.

There was this fashion trend that was very popular back in the 60's or the 70's where they put goldfish in the heels of these platform shoes (live with water even). It was not a very thought out invention and naturally all the fish met an early end, be it starvation or just being sloshed about all day long. Anyway, it was a short lived statement then...so what makes people think these key chains will be any different? Ugh. I feel for those poor animals.

Ok, I went and looked them up...I didn't know the heel was detachable. But still....it was cruel none the less...and I am sure many fish died all in the name of fashion.
