TOURISTS AT CHINESE ICE FESTIVAL SHOOT ARROWS AT LIVE CHICKENS JANUARY 18th 2013
Festival organizers have caused controversy in northern China by offering visitors the chance to shoot live chickens with bows and arrows. Bystanders watched as the helpless birds were strung up by their feet in front of an ice wall at the Jilin Ice Festival in Yanji, while tourists took pot shots at them. Please note that these poor chickens are not dead immediately, it depends on the person who shoots.. you can imagine the suffering of those poor things! You can see here- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ML-WcLij2Es&feature=youtu.be -that the chickens are still alive when they fall to the ground, then they die slowly. Some were left wounded and in agony when the amateur archers failed to kill them. But organizers have defended the event saying: "The game was very popular and people enjoyed it." PEOPLE ENJOYED IT? How can any decent person enjoy this? Monsters. That's the only people who could enjoy this.
Oh and get this- here is how they justify it "We plan to do it again next year and the birds were not wasted, they were all eaten afterwards. The birds were all farm animals and would have died anyway. Why does it matter if it was an arrow or an axe?"
WTF? I'm disgusted. ashamed and disgusted. China should be horrified and disgusted at themselves for allowing this. Are you that bored China? Here's an idea- go buy a fucking card game or take up a hobby that doesn't involve causing innocent animals insurmountable pain!
