A SZOMORÚ IGAZSÁG A CUKI VIDEÓKRÓL
VIDEÓ INDÍTÁSA: ITT
You may have seen Youtube videos of a cute little animal called a slow loris (is) being kept as a pet and tickled. But would you think it was cute if you knew that tickling a slow loris is actually torturing it. And that slow lorises are suffering terribly as a result of the pet trade fuelled by these videos.
If I told you that before a slow loris is sold as a pet its teeth are removed without anaesthetic. Would you still want to watch it and share it with your friends?
If I told you that this loris has her arms up because she is terrified and is trying to protect herself by gathering venom from a gland inside her elbow. Would you still think it’s cute?
Thousands of lorises are viciously poached from the wild to be illegally sold on the street or in markets. Now do you still want to support this trade?
Lorises are smuggled in dark, overcrowded, airless containers alongside the bodies of other lorises that have died.
