After a few weeks of lockdown, China has started selling meat of dogs, rabbits, ducks, cats and even bats!
Bengaluru: Dogs, rabbits, ducks, cats, and even bats! Wondering what we are talking about?
Well, we are just making a list of all the animals that are available in the Chinese markets to be slaughtered and sold as meat!
Daily Mail reported that when its correspondents went to these markets, they were forbidden from taking pictures. Worse, even Wuhan, the epicentre and genesis of the problem had opened its markets for these animals and other wildlife to be sold!
Disgustingly, China is also celebrating what’s called the victory over coronavirus day as it feels the coronavirus problem is a problem that foreign countries are facing.
The website quoted one of its correspondents as saying: “Everyone here believes the outbreak is over and there's nothing to worry about any more. It's just a foreign problem now as far as they are concerned. The markets have gone back to operating in exactly the same way as they did before coronavirus. The only difference is that security guards try to stop anyone taking pictures which would never have happened before.”
Meanwhile, as the paper adds, there are conspiracy theories that China is now blaming Italy and even US for the outbreak of the pandemic saying it was the US Army brought the virus to its shores.
China had imposed a sort of lockdown for the last many weeks due to the coronavirus outbreak. People were forced to stay indoors. As a result, the economy had suffered.
We need to tell you one more thing: Traditional medicine in China involves the slaughtering and sale of wild animals as well.
But makes our hearts go out for these animals is the way in which they are mercilessly done to death, with no hygiene practice whatsoever.
