A silver fox. Animals who are skinned alive take up to ten minutes to die.

A silver fox. Animals who are skinned alive take up to ten minutes to die.

Please can you support a DOWNING STREET PETITION which is currently on the Downing Street site?

It's to ask the UK government to pressure the Chinese government to introduce animal welfare legislation. It is only up for a few weeks.

The sort of cruelty we are talking about includes
skinning animals for their fur WHILE STILL CONSCIOUS. Beating cats and dogs to death with clubs, as the stress 'makes their meat more tender. Placing animals in appalling conditions in meat markets. Feeding live animals to predators in zoos to entertain the general public!

There is evidence that the pressure is just beginning to have some effect. For example, the Chinese have had to introduce a new character to their language to say 'animal rights' because they got fed up with having to write a whole sentence every time this was mentioned.

I am sorry top upload a distressing picture, but I need to explain why we are doing this, and I am sure you will agree that it is even more distressing for the animal concerned. If you feel strongly about this treatment please support the petition at - link no longer works

You must be a British citizen or resident to sign. It doesn't take two minutes.

Please pass these details to as many friends as possible and ask them to sign.

Thank you

Thanks for this Pam. It is sickening. I will do all I can. Michael Admin

I care for these animals and this is terrible. If they think this is right they must've been dropped on their heads one too many times.

I'm American, so apparently, I'm "not eligible" to sign this petition. Congratulations, you just decreased the number of names that could be on your petition.

I am rising from nothing, I am no one. I will not have rais children and work from 9 to 5. I will not go about my day anymore and wishI could do something.I, we must band together, in droves and DO, not say, perhaps it will start as words, but it will finish with action. this is my first step to stop the mistreatment of animals, ones we eat, ones we love, all ones. I dont know what I am doing, and have noe idea how to begin, but this is a start, and I will need as many people, people who will stand up for the animals who cannot even stand in the cages they are packed into. try to change laws.

China Cruelty Response

I wish it was open for people outside of the UK. That photo is horrific!

Nov 11, 2008 This is horrendous and things must change
by: Anonymous

This cruelty damages us all unless we do something about it. China has no animal welfare laws. This is outrageous in a modern world. What happened? How is it that China hasn't enacted the legislation?

China wants to modernize. It is relatively easy to create animal welfare legislation as there are some great models around. Sweden is one example.

I ask all visitors to sign the petition, please.



China Animal Welfare DOWNING STREET PETITION — 9 Comments

  1. This is a shocking photo and something must be done to bring political pressure for change. However, some of the comments here disparaging Chinese and Japanese DO NOT help this cause and bring in unpleasant and unnecessary racist undertones that distract from it. Focus on the matter at hand – pressuring China into introducing animal welfare legislation.

    I wish I was a British citizen so I could add my signature to this petition. I will do my best to post the petition’s link at appropriate sites.

    • Thanks for the comment and support. I think we have to criticize the Chinese sometimes on their animal welfare record. You can’t avoid it and it is not racist. It is simply criticizing the Chinese for appalling animal abuse. Plain and simple. I am afraid you cannot avoid it because the Chinese government do nothing about it.

  2. is the china government body also part of the indoneshian senate house in which the law was written up on the animal welfare act and should also include the other provinces of asia . republic of china as well as mainland china .these black market are reading about the government being so lax and dragging it’s feet then they take a dog and drag on the back of it’s truck and they they animal is secondary to humans ,yes but it shouldn’t give a human to kill,torture ,skin alive ,dismember an animal alive or use a knife to gut a dog when a dog is alive . the congress and high court minister of justice must add in a clause all over to stop the injustice to their animals and we cannot rely on god to finish the sinner’s acts.the responsibility of pets ,dogs and cat’s still remain on the people who want a better world and for our children ,but the key is how do we get the change from the government.i think this is a very important issue and should be in the state capital building in the ministers of china’s office .delaying these changes are causing too many horrific death scenes and these vagrant men who rely on the street to live and make money illegally by the the victims of animals and people are dying also and a black market trade should not exist in china aperson who is intelligent can give lesson’s ,babysit, take care of elderly , walk dogs , drive senior ‘s to dr’s office and supermarket and there is just a plain old companionship.i am suffering so much to see animal go thru a nightmarish hell when wealthy donators built a compound in the Philippines called dog mountain in which a homeless dog can go there and live which would be the right and fair thing to do ,but the vagrant is intervening saying there isn’t a law for killing animal’s so where do we draw the line ? I hate china because they let their people run wild and do what they want ,but how does this differ from the drug rings who were sentenced and convicted to die? killing a dog has become an addiction to them ,everyday go out kill dogs and cats and gts biggere and bigger ,kill more, the dogs and cats are just scapegoats here ,these people should be held accountable for their actions upn pets that are stolen pets its not like they want deep sea fishing or hunting.please understand where I am coming from laws were meant to be broken,no laws have gotten us ruthless,wicked skinning animals alive for profit .is this right? no it is not so their gov’t should start the process to stop their brutal slayings and burning of dogs ,which is also a sign of anti government action. thanyou ,mrs jill davis .oh and by the way what would happen if I burned the china’s flag .or the Korean flag ? I would go to jail? put to death? a fireing squad maybe? what would happen ?

    • Thanks for commenting. Please tell me: is Jill Davis you real name? Are you living in China? I agree that what happens to cats and dogs in parts of China is horrendous. I’d like to do the same to the people who perpetrate these wicked acts.
