Massive Unused Chicken Cages Torn Down In Eastern China
Looking from above, one can never tell that these colorful rows in Jinan, capital of east China’s Shandong Province, featuring flower and fish patterns as well as Chinese characters are actually thousands of deserted battery cages.
Occupying an area of about 4,000 square meters, the neat layout looks like sets of mahjong tiles, skillfully put into place.
The poultry cages could house up to 100, 000 fowls. However, they were never put into use.
The cages were taken to bits on Wednesday as the land is planned for a sewage treatment plant.
