This really shows life in that side of the world.... I like to see this kind of photos.
"And in this bottle over here we have the snake oil that cures everything!"
Did you hear that the Chinese Tobacco Monopoly has lauched their website to promote the health benefits of smoking? It is so interesting to watch other countries pass through the same cycle of development as we have. "Pall Mall, they're toasted!"
Hopefully they pass over the piece of development we seem to be in right now...
I think they do these for reasons:
1 In China, these animal bodies are some important parts of Chinese medicine.
2 They are too poor,and they don't have other good ways to make some incomes.
3 Maybe they don't know the law as they don't get well eduaction, as I know, if you kill a tiger in China, you'll be sent to prison for many years.
Yes,we should protect the wild animals,However,I think we can not avoid anyone doing this.These happens even in western counties also,just in another way.You know,even some famous Garment Company sell leather.
