Remember the ZOOS OF DEATH? Well, those wacky Chinese are still up to no good!
Olympics clean-up Chinese style: Inside Beijing's shocking death camp for cats
Thousands of pet cats in Beijing are being abandoned by their owners and sent to die in secretive government pounds as China mounts an aggressive drive to clean up the capital in preparation for the Olympic Games.Once again, the comments are the funniest part!
Hundreds of cats a day are being rounded and crammed into cages so small they cannot even turn around.
Then they are trucked to what animal welfare groups describe as death camps on the edges of the city.
The Chinese people should be ashamed of themselves for killing cats and skinning dogs alive!Yes, every single Chinese person should be ashamed. >>

Poor Nisshin Maru. As the largest ship in the Japanese whaling fleet, it gets a lot of flak from people like Greenpeace and Sea Shepherd. It's been rammed by Greenpeace boats twice (or rammed them, depending on who you talk to), denounced as a vessel for "cetacean serial killers," and it even caught on fire last year. Dozens of people have made it their life's work to follow the boat to the ends of the earth, stopping them from harpooning whales and bringing to mind the phrase "I don't come down to where you work and slap the dick out of your mouth."
Environmental activists do not like the Nisshin Maru.
Ever concerned about upping their street cred (ocean cred?), Sea Shepherd has done some ridiculous shit lately. About a month and a half ago, two of them actually boarded a whaling vessel and refused to leave until the crew had to tie them up. Now they've decided that the best way to preserve marine biodiversity is throw rotting butter at the poor little Nisshin Maru.
Japan whalers in 'butter attack'
Yeah, that's the title. A few choice quotes:
The acid thrown at the whaling ship stings if it gets in people's eyes.Oh okay whoa, check out this map of the International Whaling Commission's member states. Now that I know we have such landlocked powerhouses as Laos and Mongolia on our side, I'm sure we can stop this barbaric practice once and for all. >>
Australian Foreign Minister Stephen Smith, although a vocal opponent of Japan's whale hunt, strongly criticised the Sea Shepherd's butter attack.
