I was meaning to wish you all a happy Easter, but after reading about this... Well, let me tell you a story instead.
I remember many years ago when I was having a birthday party and got a tiny plastic box containing six jumping beans. They looked like weird dried seeds of some kind, but every once in a while they would bounce slightly. Within a matter of weeks, they would cease to bounce - permanently.
20 years later, China has taken this cruel practice to a completly new level by sealing living baby creatures inside tiny air tight plastic bags filled with colored water and selling them as living key chains. These creatures would have a natural lifespan spanning from years to half a century. Once sealed inside one of these bags however, it's just a matter of days, before the miserable creature chokes to death from lack of oxygen.
Learning about this new trend, fills me with horror, anger and discust. Please follow this link, read the whole article and sign the petition or spread the word.
