(I got this off the Huff Post but felt it would be of interest to those on the veggieboard concerned about animal rights).



Eating rare delicacies just got to a new level. In China, chefs have figured out a way to keep a fish alive as it gets deep fried and then waits to be eaten.



Below is the video of a deep-fried fish that's still living and moving on a plate. Warning, this may be too graphic for some.

Oh my god. That's the the only video of animal cruelty type things that has made me cry. That's disgusting. Why would anyone do that? I feel sick.



It's heartening to see comments from omnis saying how disgusting it is.

Sometimes the suffering and pain in the world that could just be avoided by simple respect and kindness just overwhelms me...

I saw this elsewhere, and could only get to the part where they poke it's mouth to get it to move. I think I might have trouble sleeping tonight.

Who needs sleep when we've got love?
Who needs keys when we've got clubs?
Who needs please when we've got guns?
Who needs peace when we've gone above?

I just flagged the video for violent/repulsive content/animal cruelty. I would urge you to as well. Send a message.

I dont see how that is the slightest bit funny........I can't believe they are laughing. I wish I could deep fry them while I poke at it and eat it. Sick *******s.

It still astounds me that people get such pleasure from others' suffering.



I know China isn't one big homogenous culture, but why does this kind of thing seem so prevalent there?

Ugh, I can't watch it. Just reading this makes me sick enough.



All animal cruelty bothers me, but for some reason cruelty to fish makes me most angry. The fact that there are people out there who try to justify that fish don't have feelings is the most heartless thing I've ever heard. How can someone do this to a living being?

There are no national animal cruelty laws, and because of the government structure anti-cruelty groups have no power and are often prevented from speaking up in the first place.

Wow, this is actually old news and it just brought back memories embedded in my skull that I had completely forgotten about.



I saw a video about this on TV when I was maybe....12ish? And I remember it traumatized me completely and I couldn't stop crying.



My friend saw it with me and she was unaffected and later that night at a sleepover at her house she kept making fun of me by putting her head to the side and bulging her eyes and gasping for air like the fish had done and every time she did it I would burst into tears again, seeing that pain was the worst thing in the world for me.



I became a vegetarian about a year later but I never remembered WHY I did it all this time, I guess I blocked that out. I always assumed I just read something on the internet that made me not want to eat meat or something. Wow.

I'd actually recommend *not* reporting the video. As it was said earlier in the thread, even *some* omnis are disgusted with this sort of thing, and having it on youtube for the world to see is a good thing.



Having this available brings shame to those chefs, gourmands, foodies, etc who just have to have whatever is adventurous.

I completely agree with you... Kindness and respect is something that shouldn't be disregarded as etiquette but used as the first response to others...





Kindest Regards,

May you be held in compassion.
May your pain and sorrow be eased.
May you be at peace.

WHY???????? How can someone look into the face of a living being that is in complete agony and pain and feel nothing ? To think of this as laughable? This sort of thing makes me want to go sit somewhere and just stare into space. I just don't understand..

I get that. But it goes beyond indifference. I can understand growing up in a culture where animals are slaughtered in the open, and seen as something that you eat, not something you bond with and learning to see them as nothing more than a source of food without taking into consideration the fact that they have needs and are capable of suffering.



But this is more like, "hey this creature is sentient and can suffer just like we can! What's the best way to take full advantage of this, plus the fact that it can't even fight back and then make the consumption of it a status symbol like shark fin soup, dog meat, etc.?"



There are many other countries where animal welfare laws just simply don't exist or are not enforced, but animal cruelty mostly seems to occur thanks to plain old apathy or economic reasons, whereas this is getting pleasure from another's suffering - on a systematic level.

I couldn't agree more. I can't believe how cruel and low people can be. It's bloody insane.

I'm not finding this to be very overwhelming, compared to things like MYM and earthlings, but it's still quite gross.



Just goes to show you that people have different opinions regarding animal rights/welfare.

The fact is, some people jsut dont see animals as living beings, they dont understand that they have nervious systems just like us, and that they too feel pain. People so often dont want to belevie this, because their compassion would prevent them from doign such things if they did think it hurt.

Disgusting to see, these people need educating on what they are clearly to dumb to work out for themselves.

Yes, that's the case for most people. I know a few people who just don't want to know any facts about the meat industry because it would put them off meat. I don't know how anyone could not want to know the truth. If the information is available, then i want it.
