REPORT: Chinese markets still selling bats and slaughtering dogs, cats, rabbits in gruesome market scene
As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service on the internet, DML News App offers the following information published by DailyMail:
Terrified dogs and cats crammed into rusty cages. Bats and scorpions offered for sale as traditional medicine. Rabbits and ducks slaughtered and skinned side by side on a stone floor covered with blood, filth, and animal remains.
Those were the deeply troubling scenes yesterday as China celebrated its ‘victory’ over the coronavirus by reopening squalid meat markets of the type that started the pandemic three months ago, with no apparent attempt to raise hygiene standards to prevent a future outbreak.
The article goes on to state the following:
As the pandemic that began in Wuhan forced countries worldwide to go into lockdown, a Mail on Sunday correspondent yesterday watched as thousands of customers flocked to a sprawling indoor market in Guilin, south-west China.
The Daily Mail reported that the market was back in full swing, as cases of dogs, cats, rabbits, ducks and other domesticated and wild animals were all pilled up, either waiting to be slaughtered, or the slaughtered animals laid out in full display to be sold.
Bats, thought to be the cause of the initial coronavirus outbreak in Wuhan, were being sold, along with scorpions and other creatures.
“The market in Guilin was packed with shoppers yesterday, with fresh dog and cat meat on offer, a traditional ‘warming’ winter dish,” the Daily Mail wrote.
Photos are shown below of dogs and cats in cages waiting to be slaughtered. One journalist who captured the photos stated, “Everyone here believes the outbreak is over and there’s nothing to worry about any more. It’s just a foreign problem now as far as they are concerned.”

If China truly believed a “man eating a bat” was responsible for the pandemic – they wouldn’t be letting markets around the country reopening still selling them! Does anyone else now thinking the “bat story” is nothing more than an elaborate cover story? https://t.co/PuGwcE27Yo
