This article is pretty extensive in terms of detail & knowing China, specifics would be hard to come by unless in their language.
I do know there are some wonderful rescue workers & a growing number of pet lovers so am not tarring the entire race with the same brush Wink

Does anyone know if that is a true story? It comes from a notoriously dishonest disinformation site.

I googled it and can only find The Sun as the source.

The article says that the owners of the 3 animals have not been identified. How do they then know that they were thrown from buildings because they feared they have contracted a virus that there is no evidence is found in those animals?

Lordy no !  No non Chinese can get a toe hold in China, ( not that many would want to ), but they are buying up half the world , by "loaning" money for infrastructure etc and moving in when it cant be paid back.

PT, but this is your country.
China the great empire.
Did Chairman Mao eat bats?

How do Bats get sold though under Communism? By the bucket? Bat Bucket?

CFB?  Commie Fried Bat?

Nah, that would be too Capitalistic for them.

China was being watched over Hong Kong invasion of rights, now its being watched, as, ummm, being a Commie bat basketcase.

And guess what PT, China is THE ISOLATIONIST.  
If they werent before, they certainly are now.

Sausage dog rescued from meat trade will fly to Florida to meet his new family

One-year-old dachshund Wally was found in a meat market in China, scared, lonely, and shivering in -10°C temperatures. He was destined to be killed and sold as a meal, but was lucky to be rescued in time by animal charity Plush Bears Rescue, who bought the sausage dog for £26 after spotting him for sale next to a collection of dog furs in Taonan. After a month spent recovering at the charity’s rescue centre, Wally is now getting ready to fly over to the US and meet his new family in Florida. Shelter volunteer Callum Zhenyi, 36, said: ‘I first saw Wally tied up to a motorbike next to his owner who was selling big dog furs displayed like rugs on the floor. ‘One of the other volunteers had seen a dachshund on their last trip and not saved it and they regretted that deeply.

Mo doubt a percentage of Chinese here have their homeland's interest at heart and would be willing to spy and infiltrate for their despotic government.

And so the plot thickens even further.  If she's not a Chinese Government plant I'll be hugely surprised.

The Age and The Sydney Morning Herald on Wednesday reveal that Ms Liu secured access to the federal government for a company and Liberal Party donor that was endorsed by the Chinese Communist Party and later implicated in a major organised crime probe.

Nick Zhao, he man who claimed he was offered $1 million by a suspected Chinese spy to infiltrate the Australian Parliament attended a Liberal Party meeting with MP Gladys Liu at her former home.

Nick Zhao – who died in a Melbourne motel in March after he disclosed the suspected spy's approach to ASIO….

Well the thing is, the Chinese arguably still got their representative into Parliament.  By just a few votes but only after fake AEC posters, written in Mandarin, advised that people of Chinese origin should vote for the Liberal candidate.  Yes I'm referring to Gladys Liu, who initially denied being a member of the Guangdong Overseas Association which is directly linked to China's foreign interference operations, but who subsequently fessed up.

The China Overseas Exchange Association, at the time of Ms Liu's membership, reported directly to Beijing's powerful State Council and has since been merged with the Communist Party's United Front Work Department, aimed at influencing foreign governments.

China tried to plant its candidate in Federal Parliament, authorities believe

By Nick McKenziePaul Sakkal and Grace Tobin

Australian authorities are investigating claims that a Chinese espionage ring tried to install an agent for Beijing in a seat in Federal Parliament.

Sources with knowledge of the alleged plot believe the suspected Chinese intelligence group offered a million dollars to pay for the political campaign of Liberal Party member and Melbourne luxury car dealer Bo “Nick” Zhao, 32, to run for an eastern suburbs seat. The plot appears to be part of an operation to place a Chinese agent in Parliament.

Late on Sunday Australian Security Intelligence Organisation director-general of security Mike Burgess issued a statement entitled "Foreign interference". He said ASIO "takes seriously" the allegations reported by The AgeThe Sydney Morning Herald and 60 Minutes at the weekend about Mr Zhao as well as claims by young Chinese defector Wang Liqiang, who said he had worked as a spy in Hong Kong and Taiwan.
