^^And as people start to really congregate in huge numbers in cities the amount of mindless violence and similar will increase.

Not sure what the point is. The article said it might've been Sichuan dialect
but I sure couldn't make anything outta it from all the girly giggling.
What a way to spend a Friday night!
Two spectators, a crusher and a cameraman. How does a party like that get started?
Think of the ice-breaker....
I got a strong stomach but after she dry-butted the bunny a couple of times, I figured, what's the point?

I am against the basic ideals of anthropomorphism, but, as a human, I can't help to treat things as such. Countries with long history tend to take a less angelic views on humanity and survival. In essence, those cultures sort of shed the upper class ideals or ability to humanize life stock or animals that work/live in close contact with humans.
If I were to look at this from some kinda of Chinese pov, is there anything wrong with crushing bacon or steak? You might be wasting food, but you can afford it. The same thing can be said about spending millions on protesting against seal hunting or saving abandoned pets, because they can afford it. I sometimes wonder why peta zealots don't just donate all the money that the seal industry generate every year to support the struggling native people. Any way, that's another thought for another day.

I agree that a lot of people seem to imbue animals, especially cute ones, with Disney like qualities, but I imagine what we saw is the just the tip of the iceberg. There are some very sick people out there.

For them hunting is about obtaining food, even if the practice is based more on liking the activity than the actual need to sustain themselves. It's probably one of the reasons I'm a vegetarian now, along with exposure to some modern farming practices.
While I'm on the subject, hunting is probably a more humane way to obtain meat because even though death delivered by rifles or shotguns doesn't always go well at least the animals didn't live in a prison-like factory environment. Come to think of it it's an appropriate day for this post.

One of the alleged culprits has apologised after being identified by Chinese internet users...
... A search for her was launched there and according to reports she was identified as a woman from Luzhou.
The 26-year-old said she was forced to appear in the video by an unscrupulous boss when she was an intern.
At the beginning, she said, she was asked to crush fruit, then progressed to fish, lobsters and other live animals.
She was paid about 100 yuan ($15; £10) for crushing fruit, 200-300 yuan for certain small animals and up to 6,000 yuan for rabbits.
