Over A Business Deal Dispute, A Chinese Zoo Throws A Live Donkey Into Its Tiger Enclosure

Submitted by: melcervini 1 year ago in News & Politics


According to the BBC, a group of angry zoo investors have fed a live donkey to tigers at a Chinese zoo after a dispute with management. The animal struggled in the water for 30 minutes while the tigers tore it to pieces.

"While many expressed outrage at the contents of the video, shocking scenes are relatively common at zoos and safaris in China.

Visitors to a tiger farm in the north-eastern city of Harbin are able to witness tigers eat cows, and they can also pay 60 yuan (£6.80) for live chickens to be thrown into the enclosures for "entertainment."

However, the brutality of the video of the live donkey has sparked a furious response on the Chinese Internet.

"Why are humans always worse than animals," said one angry comment on Sina Weibo, China’s version of Twitter.

Fuck China

Eating is natural.  Enjoyment of eating is also natural.  Human beings are the only animals that enjoy the suffering of other animals.

melcervini They enjoy playing with their prey, there's a difference. We (as a species) seem to enjoy inflicting suffering on others just for shits and giggles.

Tigers doing what tigers do. It's probably good for them to use their predator skills instead of being fed chopped up meat.

Sucks to be the donkey though.

The circle of life is not always pleasant. 

Does it suck for the donkey?  Sure. But it was a treat for the tigers.

No other animals gave a shit.

"Why are humans always worse than animals" ... 
Animals: "The animal struggled in the water for 30 minutes while the tigers tore it to pieces." And no complaints from other animals.

Humans: "the brutality of the video of the live donkey has sparked a furious response on the Chinese Internet." From majority of humans.
