I read in the Sydney Morning Herald that live goldfish are being sold as keyrings in China.
The goldfish are trapped inside a sealed plastic bag attached to a keyring. They are being sold to the public in the Chinese city where Olympic sailing events will take place later this year.
The report said “Without access to oxygen and food, the fish cannot live for much longer than a few hours. Aimed at children, the keyring – which sports an image of Huanhuan, a young boy who is one of five mascots for the Games – is said to be selling fast in markets.”
Is this marketing gone mad, or just people trying to make a buck at the expense of the living creature? Either way I am outraged.
