A pig forced to bungee jump in China
A pig pushed off a bungee jump tower. This footage filmed in a theme park in China has caused outrage.
The animal was pushed off a 70-meter-high tower wearing a cape
Filmed in a Chinese amusement park, this stunt, organized for the opening of a new bungee attraction, has provoked many reactions on social networks and among animal rights associations.
A park’s spokesperson claims the pig was taken to the slaughterhouse after the jump. Following the controversy, the park officials apologized for what was initially “just a bit of entertainment.” Today, in China, there are no laws on animal abuse.
