I love you, so I wanna eat you

Double pages article 01

Some 30 thousands shark fins was laid on the roof?  This is a shocking news happened in Hong Kong lately, where 30 thousands shark fins was being discovered having sunbath on the industrial building in western Hong Kong.

 Conservation group Sea Shepard described this is really wrath and the scene of crime is too appalling to viewers.  Based on the picture given, these 20-30 thousands shark fins are placed surreptitiously on the roof of industrial building in anticipation for Chinese New Year demand.

 Fortunately, according to seafood industrial spokeman, the demand of this expensive staple in Chinese banquet has been declined progressively, this has to be related to the “no shark fins banquet” and our Eco mindset.  I am glad!

I love you, so I wanna be with you

This happens in North Wales, an eight years old doggy, Terfel keep bumping into things and stuck in basket.  After vet’s examination, Terfel was detected to have cataracts.

 Subsequently, owner Judy Godfrey Brown lets a stray pussy cat Pwditat stays with them.

 What happens next is that, Pwditat guides Terfel in and out of his basket and into the garden.

 This amazing story breaks the law of cats and dogs hate each other!  And since then, both are glue to each other and sleep together as well.  A true story from North Wales, about a Guide Cat and a blind dog.

 We should have more of the both on this earth!  Peace!

  1. Loved the cat/dog story, Sydney. I’m glad to hear that the practice of shark finning is on the decline. This single practice has been responsible for a dangerous depletion of the shark populations throughout the world. Thanks for posting this to raise awareness.

  2. So sad. I think that the internet really helps with these issues and raising awareness. Unfortunately, there will always be those that don’t care. Keep posting the pictures, we need to be reminded! Your cat/dog story is lovely and reminds us that there is a lot of kindness in the world. A good balance.

    • Yes, this is Sad/Happy world,the evil thought in you and me is judicable.
      I strongly urge people cutting down all killing, specially dedicated for those Lunar Chinese New Year celebrations!
      Hey, thank for compliments, I wish you be well and happy in return! Cheers!

  3. “When there is no one buying, there is no cruel business such as shark hunting,” said Yao Ming in one of his eco statement video clips. What is needed is for everyone in areas of the world where eating wild life is considered “good” to realize that this very behavior is hurting the animals, hurting our planet, and in turn hurting human beings including themselves. Awareness-raising and effective legal action are both needed. Thank you so much for sharing.

    • Yes, it’s all about supply and demand! I am a Chinese and non-vegetarian.
      I can accept eating meat for your survival but I can’t accept things like sacrifice other life just to make yourself more luxury!
      That is unacceptable!
      Hey! Allie, thanks for your stopping by! I wish you good day and smooth weekend!
      Cheers1

  4. I am SO pleased to hear of the decline of shark fins popularity–a basically tasteless “delicacy”. I don’t go through a day in my life where the knowledge of thousands of noble animals dying by drowning–the cruel irony!–isn’t somewhere in my consciousness. All for an expensive soup to lend the misguided impression its consumer is virile and wealthy.

    Thank you for shedding light—actual hope for the future of sharks–on this shameful and godless practice.

    • Yes, this cruelty act is unacceptable to me! I strongly urge people stop killing for your own indulgence life!
      Saying on behalf friend of dogs and cats! :)
      Thanks Karen, thanks for support!

  5. And Peace to you my big-hearted blogging friend. :-)

  6. I haven’t seen shark fin soup in Chinese restaurants here anymore and no one is complaining so that is good that there is no longer a great demand for it. Unless they are all written in Chinese and we don’t know. I love the story about the cat and the dog. If only my cats are not so afraid of dogs . . .

    • That is good news to me! :)
      This show that awareness and awakening are so crucial, I hope we people, especially for this coming festive season, more abstinent less killing!
      Thanks for dropping by! You have a great weekend! Cheers! :)

  7. You are awesome Sydney. Great post. Thank you!

  8. I don’t think I’ll ever understand the senseless slaughter of any animal. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not a vegetarian, I love meat. But when an animal is raped of its life for such purposes, and in such great numbers, this I can not abide. The dark ages passed many years ago, its time to live in the future people!
    Cat/dog story on the otherhand, loved it. :)

    • Is okay! I am not vegetarian either! But I feel so sad for the fishes without any fins!
      No wonder, Jaws is always strike back! Imagine how big is their eyes when they see Jaws!
      Haha! Cheers!

  9. We have a dog and two cats, they don’t hate. The dog is old and is losing his eyesight and his hearing.

    I do wonder, what is the point of eating shark fins at New Years?

    • I don’t understand either! As a Lame Chinese like me, I’m not sure the culture behind the fins And I don’t really accept any reasons even though there is any strong background behind!
      And shark fins not only high demand on Chinese New Year but also happen on grand occasion like Wedding ceremony.
      So imagine the no of shark without any fins in the ocean!
      I guess I don’t have to describe more further…..
      Hey! Thanks for your support! Have a great weekend!
      Cheers as usual! :)
