"The financial boom in China has led to a change in appetite. Protected bears, tigers, turtles, snakes, and fish are among the casualties of ‘refined’ culinary taste. China has massacred much of its own wild animal population, and is well on it’s way to do the same in neighboring countries." – Source: Global Animal
"China has emerged as the world's largest market for smuggled endangered animal species." source:http://www.huffingtonpost.com/arthur-rosenfeld/saving-a-living-treasure-_b_870685.html
I say enough is enough! The Chinese and all other countries which allow this abuse of animal to occur, have to be stopped from killing and smuggling wild animals for their own consumption and their own financial gain! And people in the rest of the World have to stop buying these animals and their parts! The Governments of the countries of this World need to set up more ways to catch the Chinese and these other countries in the act of smuggling and trading in endangered animals and their parts.Many countries are already doing this.These countries such as Bahrain have increased their security at their borders (see: http://www.menafn.com/qn_news_story_s.asp?StoryId=1093243287 ). Why can't all countries do this and also why can' t they create heavy fines for people who buy these animals and their parts? How can an individual help these animals? You can report smugglers to the authorities if you interact with these smugglers or sellers of animal parts and most of all you can stop buying animal parts. Also you can stop going to zoos and similar businesses which you suspect have smuggled animals in their premises!
