Nanjing: City Residents Wait in Line at Deer Farm to Drink Deer Blood, Claims It Can Extend Life
During the long National Day holidays, some people traveled, some people visited their family and friends, while some others went to a deer farm and waited in line to drink deer blood in order to “supplement” their bodies [for their health]. Yesterday [October 3rd], this reporter visited a deer farm in Jiangning district in Nanjing and witnessed the sickening “bloody scene” of antler sawing and deer blood drinking. However, as experts remind, people who want to supplement their bodies [for their health] should be scientific, and drinking deer blood is not for everyone.
On the Scene: A Group of City Residents People Came to Drink Deer Blood
Mr. Yang is a laid-off [effectively retired] worker of a big Nanjing corporation. More than ten years ago, he and his wife sold all their property, came to Hengxi, Jiangning, Nanjing, to invest, and built a sika deer farm there which after years of hard work by the couple has become the sika deer cultivation farm it is today. In a village in the hills, in the midst of lush woods a village on a hill, in several large and small sheds and barns, over 30 beautiful sika deer quietly live, enjoying the shade of the woods.
In Yang’s visitors parlor however, yesterday early in the morning it was filled with men and women from the city, including both the elderly and the young. It turns out, When asked, they came to wait in line to drink deer blood for their health.
Yang somewhat proudly said, “Sika deer, from their young deer antlers [before they become bone] to their deer blood to their deer meat, is valuable, more profitable than cows and sheep.” Mr. Yang says the past few days of the National Day long holiday has been extremely busy for him and his wife, everyday there being some people from the city coming to wait in line to drink deer blood to for their health.
Witnesses: The “Bloody Scene” of Sawing Deer Antlers and Drinking Deer Blood is Sickening
Yesterday [October 3rd] morning at 9am, the deer antler sawing and deer blood drinking began, and men and women stood in line outside the deer shed, waiting quietly. Mr. Yang and his employees entered a shed with about five or six deer, and this reporter quickly saw that Yang had a little steel saw in his left hand, while his right hand held a bottle of high proof baijiu to be mixed with the deer blood.
After a bit of small talk, this reporter tiptoed into the shed. As if sensing something, the little began racing around in the shed, doing anything to avoid Yang and his employee getting close to them. He first used a long metal pole and shot one deer with tranquilizers. A moment later, that deer fell to the ground and workers skillfully tied the deer’s four legs, while Yang immediately and efficiently began sawing, the saw blade slowly cutting into the antler.
As soon as the very first antler was sawn off, it was handed to one person on the side who immediately raised his head and drank [the blood from the antler]. The “bloody scene” of antler sawing and drink was sickening. Mr. Yang sawed the second antler as he said to this reporter: “Here, how about you take the second one!” At this moment, a city resident on the side couldn’t wait any longer, barged into the shed, “snatched” the second antler that Mr. Yang had sawed off, raised his head, put his mouth to where the antler had been sawn off and sucked hard, truly as if her were kissing a mouth.
But what was even bloodier was extracting and drinking deer blood. An employee accurately cut the carotid artery of a female deer and directly extracted the fresh red deer blood. A female city resident was then handed a small cup of the deer blood and drank it in one shot, her mouth suddenly covered with blood. This was even more frightening.
“What are you scared of? Deer blood the essence of heaven and earth, the most precious kind of blood! It can fortify your body and health, promote metabolism, and help you live longer… Not everyone can get a chance to drink it!” one city resident boasted
After over an hour, seven or eight city residents who were waiting in line but had not gotten a chance to drink deer blood even started quarreling with Mr. Yang. Only when Mr. Yang had no choice but to go forward and apologize promising they would definitely get to drink the first bowl of deer blood if they came the next day did the seven or eight city residents resentfully leave.
Experts: Deer Blood Is Not Necessarily For Everyone.
With regards to the situation of drinking deer blood for one’s health, a professor at the Jiangsu Province Hospital of Traditional Chinese Medicine expressed his opinion. This professor explained that the entire deer is indeed very precious, with the young antlers, deer blood, deer meat, deer breast all without exception being medicine or supplements, and amongst them the sika deer’s young antlers are especially famous and valuable as an ingredient in traditional Chinese medicine, with extremely high medicinal value. But not everyone can drink deer blood. [For instance], some people who drink deer blood develop frequent urination, high blood pressure, or nephritis [kidney inflammation] while people with impaired liver functions should abstain. Furthermore, for some people heard drinking deer blood can treat diabetes, after drinking deer blood, they can become agitated and irritable, their blood sugar levels didn’t drop but instead rose.
“According to Traditional Chinese Medicine, deer blood is hot in nature, so people who have ‘too much heat caused by a too little Yin energy‘ or who have ‘a real fire’ should not drink it. And according to Western Medicine, people who have high blood pressure, nephritis and impaired liver function should not drink deer blood either. People with diabetes usually have ‘Yin deficiency’, which makes them the wrong group of people to be drinking deer blood. And not only pure deer blood, but medicinal liquor mixed with deer blood, young deer antlers and other deer products all must be cautiously used, ” the professor said.
Comments from Sina Weibo:
Human blood is even better for your health!! Why not go kill someone!
Damn, this is sick! If someone said shit can make you immortal, this bunch of stupid cunts would also be in a line waiting to eat it!
People drinking deer blood is no cause for criticism, but the deer should be given a quick death. Don’t let the little animal suffer, that would be animal abuse.
This is bad karma.
Be careful of getting infected by parasites or bacteria and dying! These people are retards!
Actually it doesn’t matter if it is Japanese or American or Chinese, human nature is all the same, “greedy and selfish”.
What does what people drink any of your business? If our ancestors didn’t eat raw meat, we wouldn’t be here.
Our educational system needs to be reformed, what is this nonsense?
If there wasn’t buying and selling [demand], there wouldn’t be killing. Shall we stop eating chicken, duck, fish, cow, or sheep as well? It’s fine to eat deer raised on a farm, right? It’s the same as chicken raised on a farm, right? I don’t really understand why everyone is so upset.
Humans are so powerful, possessing the ability to create all, and the ability to destroy all as well！！！
I’ve felt it before, the deer antler is soft, warm, not bone.
Were the deer raised for us to burn incense to them [worship them]? It was for always to eat their meat, to cut off their antlers, so what’s the big deal with drinking some deer blood?
What do you think? Although most people would not do this and would not want to, is this belief and practice really “wrong”?
