Chinese Stone “Fake” Crocs & Snowball Lions



Winter has been taking its toll on animals unfortunate enough to find themselves in Chinese zoos, though not just because of the weather – reports have emerged of sluggish crocodiles being stoned to death “because they looked fake,” whilst elsewhere delighted visitors have been spotted enjoying the opportunity to pelt the lions with snowballs.

Local media report crocodiles kept at a Guangdong nature park have been repeatedly stoned to death by visitors, who deemed them to be fakes as a result of their winter torpor.


A number of the creatures died after being pelted with rocks, plastic bottles and other rubbish, whilst other visitors use bamboo staves staff used to pick out the rubbish tossed into their enclosure to poke and harass the animals.

Staff warn visitors about such infractions, but complain of visitors who resume pelting the creatures with rubbish as soon as they leave, and also report that at times their enclosures fill up with rubbish faster than it can be removed.

Whether this says more about prevalent attitudes to animals in China or their telling expectation that a park would try to cheat them with fake animals has already been the subject of much debate online – although few could help but feel sorry for the poor crocodiles stuck in the midst of it all.

Possibly a certain amount of scepticism on their part is understandable:


In related news, there has also been concern about Chinese zoo-goers throwing snowballs at the lions:

    If they wanna prove the crocs are fake, why not jump in and put their hands in the croc's mouth and see what happens.

    I believe these zoo-animals would just run away. I don't know what the staff has done to them but they seem broken.

    And when an animal is broken, they loose their ferociousness.

    Interesting. Let's call them easter asians from now on.
    "lol, look at them eastern asian tourists!!!"
    "even the lions look eastern asian!"

    About as fucking ridiculous as referring to blacks as "african-americans"

    ... on a different note, funny how blacks call us 'white people' all the time and it's fine, but when a white person calls them 'black people' it's racism.

    Ignore me.

    I dislike the term "African-american." It implies sub-saharan niggers have something to do with the achievements of North African civilization.

    Chinese = Japanese = Korean.

    The reason they have so many characters that are the same is because the Chinese colonized Japan/Korea.

    Saying Chinese make sense, but you are also talking about Japanese and Koreans.

    Saying Asian is too general.

    Fuck it, they're yellow

    I will not go so far as to see someone killed for being stupid, especially because there's a strong chance many of them are kids with stupid parents. I will however be more than happy to beat the everlovin' shit out of them while repeating the phrase "Like how that feels!? Is that how you like to be treated!?"

    Yeah, they should probably just hire some bouncers so they can throw the idiots out of their zoo. Then they should sue them for the cost of replacing the livestock (crocs, or lions or whatever they feel like traumatizing and killing that time). That's how "civilized" people do it right?

    Actually Civilized people go to zoos to look at animals and have a good time, not to maliciously attack animals that cannot fight back.

    Not to mention zoos in America would take a mugshot of you then kick your ass out of there and ban you from ever coming back. Also you would probably get arrested by the police and and charged with animal cruelty.

    American Zoos take the treatment of the animals very seriously.

    HouseLife, you never fail to impress. I was expecting much of "Die in a hole, stupid communist bastards" but your comments always show reason. Opening to the public that the problem with these folks would be their ignorance. Their inability to understand the "lower class" as they call them.

    That's more of a Western problem. We tend to throw our values and beliefs onto non-Western countries. Americans do this ALL the time. For some astounding reason we think everyone should live like us and everyone is living in the sames social structure as us. Sad to say that Americans are known for their ignorance when it comes to foreign politics and ethics. Most honestly believe they can do better living in China under China's State rule lol. However they aren't as aggressive as say us Europeans. We wish for all sorts of violence and suffering upon non-conformists (have you people seen what goes on within football here in EU?).

    Every country has it's own set of values due to whatever circumstances. Criticisms are fine, but people outright bashing and offending while trying to pass it off as "criticism" are truly ignorant and uneducated.

    Unfortunately you cannot take SankakuComplex as a good example of the average American. This site tends to attract a certain crowd.

    There are a few people on here that display a great deal of insight but for the most part you can't really take most of what is posted as serious. Hell, even the articles are rigged to piss people off.

    I come to the site to read about China's constant mishaps and to read the entertaining posts of the sites members.

    just open the gates of the lion pens, close the gates to the park and let the lions hunt for a few days it' s the solution to everything. call it the VIP get close to nature and play with the wild animals extravaganza i bet if you put it all on film it would still sell like hot cakes ..

    What a surprise. Chinese people proving to the war how they are less evolved than everyone else and how they are less civilized than everyone else.

    Another reason why my Taiwan wants nothing to do with China.

    Your world must be very small. In my country, they still stone *people,* as opposed to animals.

    In other news, good luck convince westerners you're not chinese while speaking, writing, and *looking* chinese. I suppose we all have our delusions.

    I know the difference between Chinese and Taiwanese primarily because I have friends from Taiwan, and I'm an American living in the midwest. It's not hard.

    You are racist against the Chinese, brainwashed by Artefag.

    China has over 1 billion people as opposed to Taiwan, of course not everyone would behave according to western standard, some are probably uneducated.

    But of course, typing this is useless as you are too brainwashed to take this in, just like the 10+ people who thumbed you up, and will thumb me down.

    If you think hating on others and stereotyping ONE BILLION people based on a few reports on a weeaboo blog, you need to wake the fuck up to the real world.

    Hate to tell you this but Artefact has nothing to do with brainwashing. Slight propaganda maybe, but the majority of racists twats are well...racists twats. It's not articles that make them racist (ok the highly uneducated might), but the commenters themselves.

    As you say, this site attracts weeaboos (and Sonyfags). So you can't expect any less from japanophiles. Anyone knows japanophile/weeaboo=hate everything not Japanese and hates everything the Japanese hate.

    Are you implying that the above article does not bring up hate-worthy behavior conducted by Chinese? Look, I'm sure there are nice Chinese, too, just like there are assholes amongst the Japanese (the bastards who hunt dolphins come to mind), but you can't honestly say that a loathful opinion about people who stone crocodiles and throw snowballs on lions is unjustified.
