Outrage over live kittens put inside claw machine

Instead of pulling stuffed toys out from a claw machine, a Chinese shop has caused outrage throughout social media which lets players scoop up a real live kitten inside of the machine. In China, the claw machine games are very popular, and in this particular “amusement park” five kittens just a few weeks old were the prizes.

One of the videos showed three black and white kittens inside the machine as a man dropped a coin and used his skill to grab one of the kittens. An attached sticker near the funnel stated, “Master, bring me home.” The one kitten looked scared as the “claw” moved near her, but when it hit her neck, the claw missed and failed to pick here up. According to the Daily Mail, the video was originally posted on April 9 and went viral on Chinese social media. It is suggested that the filming took place in one of the Chinese cities, according to Chung Tien TV. Another video showed even younger kittens inside the machine as a woman tried to snag one – she missed and complained the machine was rigged!

When the video initially circulated, a few social media comments thought the action was “cute.” Not long after that however, people became more and more irate stating the machine “claws” were never intended to pick up live animals – much less defenseless kittens. One person commenting may have summed up the entire disturbing debacle with the following words:

“Omg I have never seen such a pathetic thing in my whole life, like who the hell thought that would be a good idea? I would slap that person and put him in that freaking machine.”

    So if anyone were to get a kitten bring them home, boil them alive and eat them? Wonder what kind of care these kittens are getting.

    OMG!!! How I wish the ENTIRE country of China was obliviated off the face of the earth! This country brutalizes every single animal that exists in their country,the whole lot of them are freaking disgusting! I remember reading last year that they thought it was a good idea to freeze live fish in a ice skating rink! After much outrage it was closed down!! The atrocities and horrors that inflict on ALL animals boggles the mind!! I FUCKING HATE CHINA!!! That Yulin dog meat festival has to be the number one form of animal abuse in existance!! It’s not just that they eat these dogs(which is beyond horrific) it’s the way they go about it…..inflicting as much pain and terror as possible before death while all who attend it cheer! I wish DEATH to all involved in this nightmare!!!!!!!

    Put the bastards in the Claw Machine instead of kittens. Are these POS mentally sick? I just want to kick their ass for doing this sick shit to kittens.

    They have to be KIDDING! This is disgusting, and further shows the mentality of the Chinese people! Whoever thought this to be a good idea should be put in a claw machine and let people claw at them!

    I am really beginning to hate everything Chinese. They are nothing more than godless animal abusing dog eaters.

    These people have absolutely no respect for life! This is an atrocity!No thought to the care of these babies!

    The list of abominations just gets longer and longer! In Asia life expectancy for animals is about 1 year, then its in the pot they go! Enough, the powers that be from around the world have to choke the countries that make up the Asian theatre! The murder of innocence has got to be stopped, how these things that pass for human can look into the eyes of these animals and murder them is beyond me! Lets end the slaughter, hold these things accountable for extreme abuse, torture and murder of animals!

    What the hell is wrong with this country???? Their total lack of ANY consideration or kindness to animals is so vile I am at a loss for words. To put kittens in such a position is beyond cruel – China keeps on proving it is #1 in animal cruelty and apparently wants to keep that position. Their inhumanity is beyond comprehension.
