Stop selling baby turtles in plastic bags as "souvenir" and set them free.

China has been selling baby turtle in plastic bags as "souvenirs". The turtles apparently lived in "hell" in the plastic bags for up to 3 months before they suffocate to death. This adds to the growing population of animals that are in the brink of extinction. Stop the horrendous practice of selling baby turtles in plastic shells as "souvenirs" and set them free into the sea for them to live peacefully!

      When you feel like going to China, boycott the stalls/vendors that are selling baby turtle in plastic bags as "souvenirs" to protest against such barbaric practice. In other words, tell your supporters not to go China and spread the word, no matter why or how they want to go.

      This is disgusting! There is no humanity left, no animal deserves this cruelty. The people who buy them are just as worse as those who doom them.

      I can't believe this inhumane practise exists and what evil person ever came up with the idea in the first place.

      Please make this disgusting crime illegal immediately.
