In China's capital, there is a new trend: salamanders, small fish and even turtles are sold in tiny plastic bags. The package is sealed and contains oxygen and a usually brightly colored broth.
The trapped animals can in this state according to the seller allegedly survive several weeks before they die. Animal rights organizations, however, contradict this information. The price for this cruelty is the equivalent of slightly more than one euro. Some of Beijing's population believe that they bring these living Keychains luck.
Thus, the Austrian daily Der Standard reported in its online edition.
