I had to re-read this story several times.  As you all know, I adore turtles and when I read this story to The Husband, he said in China there is a big market for “turtle key chains”.  The key chains are made out of live turtles which are basically shrink wrapped, effectively killing them.

After doing a quick search, I discovered this is sickeningly true!  Here is the direct link to the statement on Snopes.com

This is so very sad.  These are living creatures, not plastic!  This makes me feel, quite seriously, sick to my stomach!
