Tesco/Hymall store in China: trussed up and nothing to do but wait for a slow, painful death
Tesco Torture Turtles!
They die a prolonged death in agony, anyone can wield the knife and wild populations are being devastated. But Tesco claim there’s nothing wrong in selling live turtles to eat.
Tesco – one of Britain’s largest retailers – is currently making money off the back of animal torture, by selling live animals in their stores in China. Turtles are decapitated by staff without being stunned first – or are sold live to customers who take them home to kill in any way they choose. This cruel and barbaric trade is not only an animal welfare nightmare, it is also an ecological disaster.
Tesco is putting profit over principle. We know you won’t let them get away with it.

‘No ethical company should be involved in this trade’
Dr John Wedderburn, Animals Asia Protection Network
"Wild animals sold by Tesco are
captured, tortured and slaughtered
in the most horrible ways imaginable.
Clearly, every little hurts."
Hayley Mills, Viva! patron and star of ITV’s Wild at Heart
"Already threatened by habitat destruction and pollution, turtles now
have an unlikely but formidable foe - Tesco. It is unacceptable to allow
an animal to suffer in this manner. It is also hypocritical for a
British supermarket to sanction this kind of slaughter when Tesco's
would not allow animals to be killed in such an inhumane way in Britain."
Sanjida O'Connell, presenter of BBC's Nature's Calendar
