Urgent Signatures Needed To Ban Sickening “Claw” Arcade Games That Use Live Puppies as Prizes In China

Most of us can remember playing with the toy grabbing claw at our local arcade. The metal, claw-shaped hand that many of us would spend countless tokens on as children trying to win a stuffed animal was just as frustrating as it was fun. Sadly, there is a new version of the claw game making the rounds in China.

Recently, a Twitter user posted shocking video of a claw machine in China in which stuffed animals weren’t the only prize. While there were several plush toys, the grand prize was one of a dozen or more live white fluffy puppies that were seemingly stuck in multicolored baskets.

Anyone who’s ever played one of these games knows that it takes several tries if ever, to get one of the coveted prizes. In the meantime, the toys are constantly lifted, dropped, banged and even damaged. When the “reward” is a live puppy, picking it up and dropping it over and over again is horrifically cruel.

Real puppies aren’t the only animals used in these toy grabbing games in China. According to the Mirror, lobsters, turtles, crabs and cats are also widely used. This is just another example of the lack of animal protection laws in China.

Please sign this Care2 petition and ask the Chinese government to investigate this shocking video and ban live animal claw machines immediately! SIGN HERE!
