China wants to severely punish illegal hunting and wildlife trafficking.
This emerges from the government’s working report published on Friday for the annual meeting of the National People’s Congress in Beijing.
This is intended to implement a ban that was imposed in January as a result of the coronavirus outbreak.
The novel virus had spread to a market in Wuhan at the end of 2019, selling wild animals such as bats and pangolins. The virus could have spread from such animals to humans.
Wuhan, Shanghai and other major cities have already banned the consumption of wild animals. Several provinces have also adopted plans to contain hunting, breeding and trade. ”
And I mean…Criticism is already booming on Facebook:” you shouldn’t believe the Chinese, they won’t stick to it”.
Why should one believe the Chinese a little less than the German government?
In Germany, improvements in animal protection have been announced many times and nothing has happened. Or it got worse.
The keeping of pigs in illegal boxes, for example, has been extended for 17 years.
Shredding male chicks continues as before.
Lawsuits against veterinarians, who idly watched when slaughterhouse workers tormented a cow 80 times on the anus and head with the stun gun, were terminated!
Justification: “We cannot prosecute the veterinarians because they would not be able to stop such animal suffering in the slaughterhouse anyway. They lack the opportunity to intervene directly” !!!

Before criticizing other countries, we should fight to ensure that OUR Animal Welfare Act (we claim we have the best in Europe!) is finally properly complied with in OUR own stables.
My best regards to all, Venus
