Fish Key Chains

Saw this on another site, it looks like in China they sell key chains that have live animals in them, I guess they live for a while then starve or suffocate. It looks horrible to me.

That's utterly disgusting! I'm so appalled I can't think of anything more to write. Turtles, lizards and fish in key chains... :-0

Yeah I dont know what they are thinking, the bags look sealed I guess they can cut them out if they want but im not sure what they do to them or if they just let them die in there.

I read in the article that the vendors claim that the water is nutrient rich and the animal inside can live for months or years, but they wind up dying in a few hours usually. They sell it on the street to shoppers or around elementary schools.

I thought about that but then they would probably just sell more, maybe if the sellers were put in a bag like that for 5 min they would stop.
