I had a hard time seeing all of these animals cage up. Some of the birds were over crowded in the cages. I wasn't quit sure what to think about the whole market. I wanted to believe that people would buy these animals and treat...More

If it was only a bird market, it would have been fine, although the birds are kept in small cages. But it's not only birds! Cats, dogs, monkeys, owls, otters etc. are piled up in cages and you can see their distress. The summum :...More

Heard about the place. Didn't know what to expect, but tried to keep an open mind. Wouldn't encourage it though. Some of the birds looked alright but some didn't look too healthy. May even be a health hazard.

As an animal photograper I was interested to see the range of beautiful birds and a few mammals - as an animal lover I found the market quite distasteful, but go see it for yourself and make your own mind up.
