Chinese Cruelty! A giant whale shark being sawed into pieces while still alive!

whale_sharks

It is a fate too cruel to imagine – to be slowly sawed into pieces while still alive.

But this was how a whale shark met its end in China recently as its meat was butchered in front of a huge crowd to be sold at market.  The sickening scene was captured on camera and the video was uploaded to Youtube –  sparking outrage among animal rights activists and shark groups who have labelled the footage ‘appalling’.

The whale shark, the largest fish in the world, reaching more than 12 metres in length, is protected by law from being hunted or sold for its meat. People who violate the law can face criminal charges. It’s unclear where the incident took place. But the Weibo user who posted the video online told reporters from Thepaper.cn he witnessed the scene in Yangjiang in southern Guangdong province
