Chinese zookeepers pushed a frightened live donkey into a moat at the Changzhou Zoo as prey for three hungry tigers in their enclosure. The panicky animal tried to hold on hugging his legs and hooves against the concrete precipice, but to no avail. According to the Daily Mail, the two men dressed in rain gear have not a moment of compassion for the donkey and heartlessly pushed the defenseless animal down the ramp where there could be no escape.

The donkey landed in the water, and even as he desperately tried to swim onto the shore and escape, he was no competition for the tigers as two jumped into the water and dragged the animal by his neck as they took turns biting its head. The third tiger reached out from the edge of the shore and swiped at the donkey with its claws deadly scratching out at the now defeated animal.

The camera then cuts over to four lions relaxing along the beach; the bloodied body of the donkey being dragged away by the tigers to be eaten completely. The video stated it took a half-hour for the tigers to kill the animal. Who can even imagine the pain and the complete dread the poor victim had to endure until he surely must have welcomed death.

The YouTube video is posted below. WARNING: Extremely graphic and not for the weak of heart.

        China is a SICK country!! Seems they love to do this kind of shit, they love to see the suffering. They also have the Dog and Cat meat trade which they do this!!! Dogs and cats are typically abused and tortured,in the following ways, often through, prolonged or repeat torture sessions consisting of the following ways:

        Bound alive, with limbs tied together and mouths taped, wired or tied shut to make the torture easy.
        Blow-torched alive. Blow-torching does not often kill the dog or cat quickly, and blow-torch sessions can take place over several hours or even days, leaving the animal suffering accumulated burns.
        Boiled alive. In a metal pot or cauldron, it can take up to 30 minutes for the dog or cat to die through boiling. Sometimes animals are boiled, kept alive, beaten, and then boiled alive again.
        Burned alive. In fire pits and open ovens, live dogs and cats are speared, held by instruments, such as metal prongs and sticks, and jammed into open fire, where it may take 30 minutes or longer to die.
        Hung and beaten, or nailed to walls and posts and beaten.
        Stabbing and sensory organ/genital mutilation. Dogs and cats are repeatedly stabbed and cut, such as eyes gouged out or genitals cut to cause extreme suffering. They drag them behind cars also! If you would like to stop the Dog and Cat meat trade please join our group on FB https://www.facebook.com/groups/997078533746620/

      Barbara. The donkey was killed and eaten by the Tigers! Horrible horrible monster zoo keepers! At the very minimum, humanely kill the poor donkey before it is cruelly thrown to the Tigers! Better yet go get already killed for consumption, chickens from the store.

      Barbara Garabedian, did you not read the story? As soon as the donkey landed in the water 2 tigers went straight into the water and attacked its head then 4 more joined in and dragged it away to eat it. That donkey died moments later when being eaten alive. i`m never eating \chinease again.

        Please don’t ASSume that many of us haven’t put our energies elsewhere regarding animal abuse…….I have and I’m sure people on this site have as well. It’s ok to vent when we are angry, upset, and disgusted by those that abuse animals. Stop telling us what and what not to do. Mind your own business!!!!!!

    • mikisdad says:

      Moderation of your language would be useful. Use of your intellect in considering this problem would be better still. A donation to PETA or a similar animal welfare group would be most beneficial. If you really care, rather than just mouthing expletives at zoo workers, put your money where your mouth is and do something productive towards ending such cruelty.

      • mikisdad says:

        Mark, I haven’t assumed anything. I *have* responded to the appalling language and suggestions made in many of the contents of posts made here.

        Venting is one thing. Using venting as an excuse to villify 1.4 billion people on the basis of the actions of a few is NOT OK.

        I did not tell you what to do or what not to do. I asked that people put their energies into behaviour that might help to stop abuse, rather than into destructive anger, false hyperbole, and hysterical threats and notions of revenge.

        Why you think that animal and human welfare, ethical conduct, civil behaviour and countering bad with good is not my business, I don’t know. I think it is very much my business and should be everyone’s business, if everyone is serious about promoting a healthier, more generous, less cruel, and more harmonious world.

        Multiple exclamation marks are a poor device. In reality, they simply lessen the effect of the “stress” that a single exclamation mark is intended to portray. Your use of them will almost certainly reduce any merit of your content in the opinion of those who have a high level of understanding of the language and its devices.

        You might also consider the contradiction arising from your command to me to “Mind your own business”. What makes animal cruelty your business but nor mine? Not that I did so, but if I had, why should I “Stop telling us what and what not to do” whilst at the same time it is apparently o.k. for you to tell me “what to do and what not to do.”?

      • Mark says:

        Actually multiple exclamations marks are acceptable in emails, texts. Not in formal writing. “Mind your own business” was a reference to you for commenting what people should do or not do. Have a blessed day!!!!!!!

    • mikisdad says:

      Your statement is fallacious. I can understand your horror at what is reported here – it IS horrendous, cruel, even barbaric. However, to equate it with what is characteristic of a whole nation is just not valid and will certainly do nothing to achieve more humane treatment of animals.

      Horrors such as this need understanding and considered action that persuades those responsible to see what they do and to show them that there are humane alternatives. What may seem to you to be obvious cruelty, may to others, be an accepted and socialised norm or the actions of a few unfeeling, uncaring, and noxious individuals.

      China, as dose ever nation, has the good, the bad and the indifferent. It can behave well as a nation and it can behave badly. Given its political system, wide engagement of the population in the political process or even in access to information may be severely limited.

      What one needs to realise and remember is that such is also the case in what are considered to be free and responsible, ethical and moral nations. What is apparent on the surface often disguises what is underneath. We now have a madman as President of the leading nation of the “Free World” and who has his finger on the nuclear button. He is signing legislation that is depriving millions of basic life necessities. He is alienating the vast majority of other nations and their peoples, and he has no more caring for people than the zoo employees in this video have for the donkey.

      Capture that sincere disgust you feel and channel it appropriately. Join an animal welfare organisation. Lobby politicians both at home and in China. Write to zooological societies and even the popular press. Promote awareness wherever you are of callous behaviour of this type. Don’t, however, make the mistake of blaming an entire nations of some 1.4 billion people for the actions of a few.

        Oh PUHLEEZE! A liberal, no doubt. Trump has America’s best interests at heart, despite how liberals want to undermine him.

May it get wiped off the planet.

      • Mark says:

        Debbie seriously what’s wrong with liberals? You commented at the same time how you think China isn’t bad and yet you expressed you’re dislike of what they’re doing….make up your mind. LOL!

    • Roger Hawcroft says:

      You have no justification for such a generalisation. To judge and label 1.4 billion people on the basis of the actions of a few, is simply not valid.

      Were you to study some World history, you would perhaps have a greater understanding of how human beings act and have acted all over the World.

      Should we abuse and condemn the 365 million people in the USA because they massacred its indigenous people and have treated them poorly ever since? Should we condemn America and its citizens because many of its police forces continue to discriminate against Afro-Americans, even to the point of killing them unnecessarily? Should we hate and hurl abuse at America and its citizens for endorsing and deliberately arranging for detainees to be moved to Egypt for torture? Should we condemn America and all its citizens because some conduct dog and cock fights, run puppy farms where dogs are neglected, hunt and destroy the habitat of protected species, dump nuclear waste in waters close to major cities, etch…. The list goes on.

      What is reported here is, to most of us, an unnecessary and barbaric act. I am one of those who is appalled by it as I marvel at and have a fondness for all animal life. However, the wanton, uncivilised, and abusive rhetoric displayed by yourself and so many here reduces you all to a level no better than those that committed the very act which has created your ire. Some have even called for similar killing and torture.

      These hysterical, abusively emotive responses and their false demonisation of a whole nation, do nothing to make the World a better place or to contribute to better understanding among people and cultures such that animal cruelty is ended. Those who make them, including yourself, would do well to think about that.

      No ‘benevolent’ god would allow this. Indeed, this is one of the problems with the delusional belief in an omnipotent and loving god. If god is loving and omnipotent then he/she/it would not allow the suffering in the World. If he/she/it is loving but not able to stop the suffering in the World then he/she/it is not omnipotent. If he/she/it *is* omnipotent the he/she/it is a malevolent god.

      In fact, of course, there is no god. There is simply primitive superstition extended into the present day.

    Are the actions of the these zoo keepers evil and negative? They absolutely are. But the sad truth is that whether to feed a hungry human or a hungry animal, there is no human way of killing an innocent animal for food consumption. No matter what method is being used, the innocent animal does and will always feel the overwhelming physical as well as the psychological pain beginning moments before and during the frightening process of losing their lives.

    Wow, some of these comments are utterly retarded. I agree that the zoo keepers are assholes, but really? Kill their families? Bomb the entire country? Are you guys mentally stable? Do you realize that this was being filmed by other Chinese people who were against it? If it wasn’t for the fact that there are Chinese people in the same country who are utterly against what happened here, you wouldn’t even know about it…

        I have not found a dog festival in the US where the dogs raised in cages too small for them, some are stolen pets, are beaten, burned alive, or hung, killed in the most violent way because it is believed the adrenaline in the blood makes the meat taste better (HOW MUCH MORE IGNORANT CAN YOU GET). The CHINESE YULIN DOG FESTIVAL … I am pretty sure we don’t have anything that compares to that … BOYCOTT SHIT FROM CHINA !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

        Very few of the Chinese are rescuers of animals. My niece who is Chinese tells me the new generation is against animal abuse, however, not enough to stop because most follow their old traditions. Get a life and do your homework!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      • Brandi says:

        What did I say that wasn’t true? Fact: There are Chinese people who are fighting against animal cruelty. Fact: “We” meaning Americas are responsible for killing many different animals in the US. Bison, wild horses, fox, bears, bobcats to name a few. Oh coyote or wolves killing your livestock…no problem you can annihilate them because of course you have to protect your money interests. Wildlife services (part of the USDA) killed 2.7 million animals in 2016 (1.6 that are native wildlife). They use poison, firearms, snares, leg traps, etc. They kill off the predators, then have to kill off the prey because then natural balance is now not being kept in check. Not to mention we kill around 9 BILLION land animals a year for food. Do you think these farm animals have a good life? Ha! If you are housing that many animals you know conditions are going to be bad. How about all the Americans who go big game hunting in other countries. How about all the puppy mills and dog fighting operations here in America. My point is you can’t just shake your fist at China and say they are all evil without doing some self reflection on our own country. China isn’t the only country involved in animal abuse. It’s a global problem. To label all Chinese as evil only further separates us as a society instead of being able to pull together and make the positive changes we want to see.

      • Brandi says:

        Patty – how about hens that are shoved in battery cages and can’t even move. Ducks who are in cages no bigger than their bodies and have metal pipes shoved down their throats so people can eat foie gras, sows who are put in gestation crates that they can’t even move around in, calves tied up in veal crates so they can’t move. These animals are often abused by the workers because of the horrible work situation. I have seen animals punched, kicked, stabbed with a pitchfork and worse. They are denied medical care because it would cut into the profits. The difference is we don’t publicize it in the US like they do in China. As a matter of fact some states now have ag-gag laws in effect meaning if you film animal abuse on a factory farm you go to jail and of course nothing happens to the people doling out the abuse. Approximately 10,000-15,000 dogs are killed in China during the festival. Approximately 24,000 chickens are killed PER DAY in the US at a rate too fast to be humane as most are killed while still conscious. Oh and all male chicks that hatched are either stuffed in a garbage bag and suffocated or thrown into a grinder at 1 day old. Plus we have puppy mills where dogs are shoved in small wire cages and bred to death. Oh we also kill about 9,000 dogs and cats in shelters everyday. Also, not a day goes by that I don’t see another article of a dog or cat set on fire, dragged behind a car, etc. We have some pretty sick individuals too and a public that wants to point the finger at all other countries but themselves.

        But heres the biggie.
        what exactly are you doing about it? not asking you about your family pets or donations to your local rescues. that is the norm and the least you can do. you are screaming at people on your side, all the while your home and fridge are filled with Chinese products and produce.

        Its funny you seem to equate hysteria with actually doing something but your utter frustration comes from the powerless feeling knowing you haven’t done anything to help. Open your eyes to people in china who are on the front line.
        You have never been in a dangerous situation in animal rights reform. Maybe you never will. Maybe ,
        When you stop arguing with people you may accomplish something. other than screaming at the world,
        boycott china ( im sorry, ” Chinese SHIT”!?, classy)
        incidentally patty, its the Chinese who are making the changes. Not Americans, not the Dutch. We are doing it online, in our pajamas.

    Totally horrific! How can a human be so heartless, lack complete feelings, care nothing about the fear, pain, terror they forced this innocent animal to endure? They just stood there watching like the donkey was nothing, like it was a piece of garbage. They are Devils from the depths of hell, they are not human. Those people, each one of them need to be punished beyond any normal punishment, they need to be tortured as they inflicted torture upon the donkey. Imagine the pain it was forced to endure, the fear, the horror… there is no excuse for such behavior, no justification, no morals what so ever. I pray they are sentenced to long prison terms, harsh prison terms, painful terms. They need to feel what that donkey felt, every ounce of pain, every tear, every heartbreak. I’m sickened by their actions, appauled at their lack of compassion. Devils…. Devils who walk amongst us, free to repeat these actions on whom or what ever they choose. We the public must demand they serve proper justice… demand they do at least 15 years locked in prison. Rest east little donkey, I’m so sorry you were treated so horrifically by those who were disposed to care for you. Run free across the bridge sweetheart, we love you deeply!!!

      ‘You’ Americans already have some of the strongest laws in the World & some of the toughest punishments.

Apparently you choose to ignore your own attitude, the attitude and suggestions of so many who have written here, and the fact that America has a massive prison population and vies with Saudi Arabia for the dubious merit of being the nation to commit most executions.

      This, leaving aside the fact that it is the only nation that has dropped atomic bombs on civilian cities – probably the most horrific event in history, and that it still reviles Afro-Americans and has a massive population of homeless and people living in poverty whilst it spends trillions on weapons.

      America is no example for the World and, since the election of a misguided, narcissistic and vacuous president, the government has embarked on a program of regression that will undo most of the positive progress the country has made in terms of positive human values.

      • Roger Hawcroft says:

        Barkley’s Mom, you need to read my post in context before you attack me inappropriately for things I’ve neither said or done. My use of the term “You” Americans [note the use of the inverted commas] was a direct response to the post of Jim, who used the term “We Americans”, not “Some of us Americans” as would have been more accurate. The inverted commas follow normal written convention in drawing attention to that fact.

        You also need to check your history if you think that the dropping of atomic bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki brought about the end of World War II. It did not.

        My comment regarding your president did not “hold it against [you] us but was used in the context of Jim’s banal assertion that: “We Americans need tougher laws and punishment to show the world. We will not alow [sic] anyone. to do cruel acts.” My comments regarding America’s transgressions and cruelty as a nation were similarly aimed at suggesting to Jim and those who express similar views that, to use the colloquial, his words and those of most others here are a case of “the pot calling the kettle black.”

        I notice that others have joined you in berating me and done so in extremely abusive terms. This is a reflection on their inability to reason rationally and apply logic to their arguments. For instance: a handful of Chinese zoo keepers kill a goat in an inhumane, cruel and heartless way in order to feed some other zoo animals and, as a result, there are numerous nasty and abusive diatribes here that slander the whole Chinese people and, what’s even more bizarre and illogical is that many of those feigning anger at the horrible end for the donkey, actually propose the annihilation of the whole Chinese race and, in at least one case, the whole of the population of Asia.

        If you cannot see the problem with these simplistic, indoctrinated, and uninormed rants then I am sorry for you because you are standing on the wrong side of all that is morally sound and ethically justified.

        As for Bunny Peters and Ellen Cottone and the others who choose to demean England, Austrlia, the Queen and myself, among other things, you all need to read what I’ve written rather than what you think I’ve written. You also need to turn your anger into a productive direction, rather than hurl stones at someone who has long fought to rid the World of animal cruelty, race hatred, disadvantage, bigotry, intolerance, ignorant nationalism and other attitudes that only make our world a WORSE place and create far more horror and devastation to all life and the planet itself than the actions of these zookeepers, which actions I also condemn.

        22000 children die unnecessarily every day in the majority world and barely a word is written about it. 7000 women die in childbirth every week in the majority world because of lack of effective hygiene and, again, barely a word is written or said about it. Why is it that the people here who are hurling expletives, calling for mass genocide, deriding a whole nation on the basis of the actions of a few, and effectively calling for America to become a nation of murderers, i.e even worse than those [the zoo-keepers] whose actions they condemn?

        Do you want me to believe that those writing this malevolent and hateful rhetoric are all intellectually disabled, uneducated, or incapable of rational thought? That is certainly the impression given by many of the raves here. Thankfully, there are a few who have expressed their sorrow and pain at what took place at the zoo and who have condemned it, but done so in a rational way. Sadly, it is far too few who have done so and I would suggest that such is why your nation has now elected a president who is an egocentric narcissist who has engaged in criminal activity, filed for bankruptcy some 12 times, mistreated and under paid the very workers he now seeks to deport, and who brings more shame on the American nation than even Nixon or Bush managed.

        I strongly suggest that before putting pen to paper (so to speak) once again, all those who have written hateful, aggressive, bigoted, irrational and unproductive rants here should learn to read with comprehension and develop some humanity and understanding of differences in culture and the complexity of bringing nations together in their thinking.

      Precisely. The majority of comment are ill-considered, venomous and, in many cases, even advise worse behaviour than is apparent in this video.

    WTF you Chinese people are the worst in the world for abusing animals. That poor Donkey tried so hard to fight for his life what your country does to animals is a fucking disgrace to mankind. The least you could do is kill the animal humanely then feed it to the lions. Sick bastards hope God wipes your country off the face of the earth.

      Charming. I’d like to see your evidence for your statement that “Chinese people are the worst in the world for abusing animals.”

      Were you to actually research human cruelty to animals I think you would find that the Chinese are no worse than most other nations, including the modern “first world” democracies.

      As for your hope that a [mythical] “God” wipes China “off the face of the earth” – how do you rationalise that with your supposed anger at the inhumane slaughter of one donkey?

      Don’t join the pathetic hypocrisy of unthinking critics – use your intellect and think before you write.

    The Chinese have no heart with animals. They are the worst cruelest people on earth. AND, doing this in public view.

      Let me start by saying I hate this video too, however, there are lots of Chinese people who fight every day to stop this kind of animal abuse. This stuff, unfortunately happens in every country. Do you live in the US? If so take a look at what we do to farm animals. Just youtube undercover factory farming videos. It’s way worse than what happened to this donkey and it happens every single day. Before pointing the finger at other countries, take a look at what is happening in your own. People just hate “china” more because they do it to dogs and not cows/pigs/chickens. It doesn’t make the abuse any less cruel because it is against a farm animal and not a dog. Food for thought.

        Well said. The extent of bigotry and ignorance displayed in comments on this topic is as horrifying as seeing the donkey dumped to its death.

      • Allen says:

        Not really. Bigotry IS wrong, but, the donkey being dumped to it’s death is clearly more horrifying than the out pouring of anger on this post. People are expressing their anger. Who are we to criticize them for doing so.

      • mikisdad says:

        I disagree. Anger is a wasteful and destructive emotion. The people expressing anger in posts here are predominantly expressing one or all of: a lack of reason, blaming all for the actions of a few, outright bigotry, calls to actions that *are* more horrifying than throwing the donkey to the tigers.

        It may not be popular to point out fallacious argument and misguided comment but that does not mean it shouldn’t be done. Brandi is one of the very few people who have responded here who has made any valid comment.

        Instead of shouting expletives, demonising a whole nation, and calling, (ironically), for treatment of the zoo keepers that is as bad or worse than that meted out to the donkey, those who are offended and angry about this action would be better advised to support organisations, individuals and movements whose aims are to prevent animal cruelty wherever it occurs. A donation to PETA, for instance, would be useful – cursing or demonising the Chinese nation is not.

        Other actions that could be taken and that would cost them little more effort than that put into their posts here would be to write to the officials responsible for animal welfare in China and other countries around the World, as well as the United Nations, their own political representatives and other influential people.

    • mikisdad says:

      The Chinese are not as you suggest. As for “doing this in public view” – are you suggesting that it wouldn’t be as bad if they’d done it out of public view? You need to think before you write and know that generalising from the particular is not valid.

      Of course, using missiles to destroy the homes of innocent civilians is “good”, is it? The Chinese are one of the least aggressive peoples in the World and have one of the oldest and wisest cultures. You need to think about what you say before mouthing off. I don’t like the killing of this donkey in this way any more than you do but that is no reason to condemn a nation of 1.4 billion people.

      Do you condemn your own nation because it has serial killers and a military that regularly kills innocent civilians and uses the euphemism of “collateral damage” to describe murder?

      The language you use in your comment is bigoted. The content of your comment is bigoted. Your suggestion is of mass murder and yet you supposedly are concerned about the killing of one donkey. You are mixed up and need to learn how to reason rationally.

    The Chinese also are demanding rhino horn, which is now higher in price than gold. Consider that due to their stupid demand for the horn, one of the last remaining five rhinos was recently murdered in a sanctuary! The Chinese are also flying pregnant communist Chinese broads into our country EVERY MONTH where they stay in group homes till they dump out an anchor baby. Even the wealthy ones refuse to pay all their bills so the American taxpayer gets stuck with the hospital bills and everything else. Once their anchor baby has been dumped out, they then send for all their friends and relatives to come here. REVOKE ALL CITIZENSHIP AND DEPORT, DEPORT, DEPORT!

    BOYCOTT ALL CHINESE PRODUCTS! These “zookeepers” need to be fired and then arrested and jailed for LIFE. If necessary to feed the big cats, they should have euthanized the donkey first.

    Reply
    • mikisdad says:

      Yes, euthanising the donkey prior to feeding it would have saved its suffering. However, your calls to boycott all Chinese products is in no way justified by the actions of these zoo keepers. Should you bother to think for a moment, you would also realise that a large proportion of the material items you use are made in China and that without them your life would be very different.

      You also seem unable to appreciate that what you advocate for the zookeepers is a set of actions as bad, if not worse, than the sacrifice of the live donkey, to which you supposedly object. Can you not see the contradictions in your own words?

    another reason to boycott China. Are there no rules in place to protect animals?? how could they watch this. it scares me how many societies on this planet enjoy harming animals. makes me sick.

      Yes, the cruelty to animals across the planet is enough to lead any caring person to despair. However, this action does not provide a reason to boycott China, nor does it reflect on all Chinese. If you are to boycott China for this action then you would have to boycott virtually every nation on earth, particularly the wealthy ones such as the United States for wherever the fundamental aspirations inculcated in society are to make money, corruption and criminal acts are the result.

    There are not words for this unthinkable, horrible cruelty. How have these zoo keepers gone unpunished? This is shocking. Even though there were only a few responsible for this heinous cruelty, an action like this reflects on the entire country of China and its people.

    Reply
    • Roger Hawcroft says:

      No, this act does not reflect on the entire Chinese nation. There are many Chinese activists and others who deplore such an action and work hard to stop such events. Before you throw stones at the Chinese and lump them all into the same basket, perhaps you should take a good look at your own nation and its meat trade, its treatment of foreign workers, its attitude to Mexicans, its expenditure on weapons as opposed to its expenditure on its own disadvantaged citizens, and its callous treatment of animals at rodeos, dog-fights, cock-fights, in horse-racing and many other areas.

        I think the Yulin Dog Meat “FESTIVAL” far surpasses all of the activities you mentioned combined ……….. Oh … then there is the single handed extinction of the Rhino for its horn which of course possess medicinal properties … OMG ….. TURN THE PAGE CHINA !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I already read about these Chinese: they are NOT civilized; how they handle cats and dogs, and now this?!? These ‘people’ are walking tumors, pieces of cancer! And there are no words, NOT any excuse to treat this poor donkey and other poor animals like this by these cancer-types! Punish them by throwing them into this water! NO One will cry or feel sorry for ‘cleaning’ the society from these worthless pieces of cancer.
