LOL,

If you can pick up a real cheap jetski let me know. I could have fun with one of them up in the Murray. Wink

^ well, it’s pretty distressing, and I’d much prefer it if circuses didn’t use wild animals, but this type of thing happens -more slowly, helplessly, and with a more grisly outcome - every minute in Africa. Just because humans were involved I’m not sure it’s much worse.

China is a bit third world when it comes to animal rights, though it is changing. One of my Chinese friends, living in Shanghai, has a pet duck. I think you’ve seen, in Chinatown, how the Chinese normally conceive of ducks. That tells you how far they have come in a short time. She says she won’t allow it to leave the flat, though !

Except the pony was a sitting duck, with no way to escape, and indoctrinated by man to obey. Poor thing would have been terrified, and he’s still stuck there. $£$%^%%$ barbarians

As the key ingredient in Beijing duck? Are you suggesting Chinese people of any type are keener on duck dishes than other people?

They’re keen on eating any animal of almost any kind regardless of its feelings on the matter. When you have about a billion people and a history of hunger in a society, consciousness of animal rights tends to be secondary, but it is growing there as they become more affluent. I have eaten many, erm, interesting thins in China - some of my favourite menu items, over the years, were “homemade pig’s oviduct” and “snake heads in special porridge”. The frogs’ Fallopian tubes (aka “hashima”) were straightforward after those .....delights.

There's an old Chinese quote that loosely translates to "if it's back faces the sun, it's edible"

I don't think just about any animal or plant feels keen on being eaten (though people might argue the case for fruits' desires).
It seems the hotels in China, at least the major ones catering to Westerners, serve pretty unexotic food, which even the natives appear perfectly happy to eat.

Yes, Stui, but don't forget the old Chinese footnote, which loosely translates to "But not the baby".

During the years of the 1 child policy I'm not so sure about that.

Infant daughter stew anyone?
