Live fish being sold as keycharms

I wasn't sure if any of you were aware of this but a new market has appeared in china where they sell live fish and turtles in tiny plastic bags. I also wasn't sure where to post this but I felt that it needed to be shared with the community to spread awareness.

I Agree

This is just awful, lets try to spread the word far and wide to raise awareness and boycott sales in this barbaric trade.
