Summer is the peak season for Chinese people to consume freshwater lobsters, also called crayfish. Every day in Wuhan, China, a large amount of crayfish are being sold and sent to various places.
However, during the sorting and packing, these crayfish will seize every chance to escape while people aren’t paying attention.
For example, at Bai Sha Zhou Agricultural Market in Wuhan, a fair amount of crayfish escape from baskets and find their way into the sewer. Some peddlers, after finding this out, go there to collect the lobsters from the foul water to re-sell them.
In order not to be found out by others, they store what they catch in a restroom, where some even process the dead ones into “lobster balls.”
The photos below were secretly shot by a Netease user, Wang Haofeng, on June 20.
The above photos have gone viral on the Internet, and received over 5,000 comments on Netease.
‘Bi Chi Lao Bao’:
“Rockets have been sent into space. Why is addressing food safety issues more difficult?”
Netizen from Shandong:
“People’s morality has become bad enough.”
“The country where faith is missing…”
Netizen from Hebei:
“It’s China’s current situation. It’s not because solving the issue is more difficult than sending a rocket to outer space; rather, it’s simply impossible to raise people’s morality.”
Netizen from Hangzhou replied to Bi Chi Lao Bao:
“Sending the rocket to the space is related to government officials’ “faces.” Food safety is not a problem to them anyway since their food is specifically supplied.”
“Doing such bad things to what people eat, aren’t you afraid of being rewarded with evil?”
‘Fools’ Paradise’ replied to ‘Beijinger’:
“We are atheists, so we are not afraid of being rewarded.”
‘Chinese Descendants are Not Communists’:
“For the sake of Chinese people’s food safety, [I suggest] special supply to be canceled.”
‘Fools’ Paradise’ replied to ‘Chinese Descendants are Not Communists’:
“Do you want them to die or do you want to die?”
