Chicken China
Earlier this week, news agency Reuters reported that Chinese health authorities banned a chicken dish prepared from snake-bitten chicken! What? A snake-bitten chicken? I was shocked when I read that? How people can do such things to innocent animals? Okay, chicken is a food item and it must die before going into our stomach. But why such cruelty? Why snake-bite induced slow death?

China is country where people have different odd food habits. The chicken dish was served by some selected eateries in the southern province of Guangdong and the southwestern city of Chongqing. Recently, a video posted on local site showed how cooks forces poisonous snakes to bite live chickens before cooking. The video caused outraged locally and the may people termed it disgusting and cruel.
