Tang, a chef from the Chinese city of Changchun, is appealing for help weaning his pet off its nicotine habit - because he's sick of having to shell out for double the amount he smokes himself.

Dude, you're a chef and that's a turtle. You should be able to figure this out.

Can turtles get lung cancer from smoking?

This would be a great Science Fair Project if it didn't take 200 years to reach a conclusion.

well if you made it smoking crack or meth you might get faster results

Yeah, but with the price of lures these days Mr. Turtle can trade all the ones he gets that were snagged out on the stick-ups for smokes, and a few tasty, tasty minnows.

This not uncommon.  Animals get addicted to nicotine also.  (Nicotine is rather insidious.)

Talk about worthless journalism. There's somebody right in front of the journalist that is a chef who handles the food of others all day and obviously hasn't washed his hands since the Clinton administration and instead of THAT being the story, the turtle ends up being the subject.

'Nicotine-infused turtle' might be a new delicacy.

Somebody really got his turtle hooked on cigarettes? Does the turtle light 'em himself? That's frigging abuse. Seriously. I don't even give my dog beer.

Well, everyone smokes in China.

Lots of issues with this article.  First, that's an American common snapping turtle.  If it really is in Asia then it got there via a turtle harvest that is likely illegal.

Second, even if it is "addicted to smoking", that's not what makes it do what it does.  Snapping turtles lung/bite defensively, especially when out of the water, and when they grab on to something they tend to hold on for a little while, as they breathe.  This farking @sshole has taken advantage of that behavior to play a sick joke- taunting the turtle with a lit cig that the turtle then "puffs" as it holds on to it followng its defensive instinct.

I only hope he offers the cigs with his fingers, and the turtle gets one of those next time.

That might have already happened. Look at his index finger nub in the one picture.

Turtle: I wasn't born a smoker ... someone must have tortoise

Not as funny a headline if you read it in an American accent.Also, am I the only one who at first thought this was literally a joke article, with photoshopped pictures? Only the copyright notice for the pictures convinced me they were probably real.

Um, turtles are...interesting, to say the least.  In my line of work, I've seen far too many dead, abandoned reptiles and amphibians (we'll leave alone the furry ones for sake of brevity) and it bothers me, to say the very least.  I have a turtle named Henry, and I love him.  His big thing in life is when I come home every day and he knows it's time to eat.  Heaven help me if he were ever exposed to cigarettes-he'd beg 24/7 I'm sure.  Pesky critter, no fur so he's no fun petting, but I loves him since he doesn't bark, pee on the furniture or chew up my shoes.  Not quite a mammal brain, but...interesting.

Yup, have not clicked on one yet and will refuse to do so forever, the begging bar across the top of the screen because of Ad-block is pathetic too. I guess she bean counters have no shame.
