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.

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