DUCK! It’s The World’s Cruellest Hoopla

A fair where people hurl hoops at a helpless goose tied to a stool has been condemned by animal rights campaigners.

Bizarre footage from the funfair – in Yantai, Shandong province, eastern China – shows a goose tied to a stool balanced on plastic crates.

Then punters have to throw plastic hoops at the terrified bird, getting a prize if they manage to get one round its neck.

The footage – recorded in July – shows ring after ring being hurled at the goose, which ducks frantically to avoid being hit.

AsiaWire reached out to PETA for comment. Vice President of Programmes Elisa Allen said: “These videos of fair-goers throwing objects at helpless geese show that, regrettably, there are still people who see animals as commodities whose fears and feelings are of no consequence.”

She added: “Geese are intelligent, sensitive birds who deserve to be respected as individuals, not as the sum of their body parts or as amusement.

“PETA Asia is pushing for stronger animal welfare legislation in China while working to change public attitudes towards our fellow animals.

“We remind everyone that the best way to help animals is by never eating or wearing them and always speaking out whenever you see them being abused.”
