    Its strange, I was on a bus sometime ago on a way to a turtle soup shop, then I saw a clip of a poor bugger being flipped on his back and the knife going into the belly; the flippers were flaying around....

    Needless to say, I didn't make the trip in the end.

    Don't let old people anyhow eat turtle soup. It can be quite 'powerful' for weak bodies. My grandpa died because of turtle soup. Just my 2 cents. Beware of the herbs they put inside. Sometimes it may not be suitable for us, especially guys.

    Many of the sea turtles are already over-harvested to the point they are endangered. Same with sharks.

    Chickens, pigs, cows are all mass-reared on farms.

    So, no thanks. No turtle soup or sharkfin for me.

    the only way one can die eating turtle soup is by having choke on the hard shells/bones of the turtle ....
    i dont think the TNP or AVA will miss out a story where someone die from eating turtle soup in Singapore

    FACT: all turtles found in turtle soup restaurants in Singapore are farmed.... exactly like chicken/duck.

    POINT TO NOTE: DO NOT EAT any turtles caught in the sea/beaches. As such, when oversea, do not patronize any turtle menu near the beach/sea..... and DO NOT buy anything made from turtle shells, etc.

    poor turtles... give them a chance to live in and put them back into their natural habitat. they are harmless.

    as for poultry and other meat, these are farm animals; at birth time, their destiny is for the slaughter house. They are not directly part of the eco system.

    If we can stop eating turtles, we have one more type of animal in the system.

    i had the impression that most of the turtles meant for the soup were caught in the wild at a certain stage of their growth before housing them in a waiting area. imagine how many years it takes to raise a tortise. They grow so slowly that it really does not make sense to keep them for so long. as a businessman, i wont want to keep a turtle for 5 years and sell it for $20. it wont make money sense to me at all. well unless i can express its growth with drugs so i can maximise the returns within a few months.

    anyway, this is new to me. thanks for sharing.

    Turtles served in Turtle soup shops are bred as well. at least, that was what i remembered. So there is no distinction between them and poultry and other domestic food animals. I merely brought that up to highlight how people tend to go "save the ______ (insert name of unconventional animal here)" and not realise the irony of how they eat other animals without thinking.

    fish are caught out in their natural habitat too, should we stop eating them since they are not destined from birth to be food?

    P.S. I'm not tryin to be offensive, just trying to have people look from a slightly different perspective
