- Stop using camels as begging props in China
It seems that beggars in China can’t possibly run out of ideas. A while ago they were using children as a begging tool. This practice is widespread all across the country.
But now these people have come up with other ‘creative’ methods to impress pedestrians. Here is where the camels come into force. The animals have their limbs cut off to appear that they are begging.
As the photo shows, the people behind this are sitting on their knees, bowed, right near the camel. Can it get any more outrageous than this?

We, the undersigned, strongly feel that camels should not be used as mercy props and urge the authorities to step up and take action immediately. A country that aims to be the number one power in the world should not have such ‘shows’ on its streets.
The camels need to be rescued and receive medical attention as soon as possible. They should not be laying in the street one more moment!
Please act now to save China’s camels!
