The Many ‘Delightful’ Meats Sold at the Wet Markets of China

If anyone thinks that Shadow State cannot write about any topic other than Allison Mack, here is some pretty solid proof that he can. His topic is China, the largest slave-owning country in the world with more than one billion slaves. 

By Shadow State

I must thank Ken Gibson for writing a great run down of China’s Guilt in spreading the Wuhan virus around the world and crashing the Global economy.

Ken brings up many good points:

For example, over the past 20 years many of the world’s deadly epidemics originated in China.


Severe acute respiratory syndrome-related coronavirus - Wikipedia
SARS appeared in 2002 in China. It spread worldwide within a few months, though it was quickly contained. SARS is a virus transmitted through droplets that enter the air when someone with the disease coughs, sneezes, or talks. No known transmission has occurred since 2004. Fever, dry cough, headache, muscle aches, and difficulty breathing are symptoms. No treatment exists except supportive care.


Impact Of Bird Flu On Chinese Economy - Business Insider
Strains of the influenza virus that primarily infect birds, but can also infect humans.
This type of flu is most often contracted by contact with sick birds. It can also be passed from person to person.
Symptoms begin within two to eight days and can seem like the common flu. Cough, fever, sore throat, muscle aches, headache, and shortness of breath may occur. The disease can carry a high mortality in humans. Some antiviral drugs, if taken within two days of symptoms, may help.

And now:

Severe acute respiratory syndrome

SARS started with Horseshoe bats in South China

The Bats Behind the Pandemic - WSJ
Rhinolophidae is a family of bats commonly known as horseshoe bats. In addition to the single living genus, Rhinolophus, one extinct genus, Palaeonycteris, has been recognized. Horseshoe bats are closely related to the Hipposideridae, which have sometimes been included in Rhinolophidae.

The viral outbreak can be genetically traced to a colony of cave-dwelling horseshoe bats in China’s Yunnan province.

The SARS epidemic appears to have started in Guangdong Province, China, in November 2002 where the first case was reported that same month.

Bird Flu

Influenza A virus subtype H7N9

Influenza A virus subtype H7N9 - Wikipedia

An H7N9 virus was first reported to have infected humans in March 2013, in China.

Wuhan, a city of eleven million people, more populous than New York City, hosts China’s only Level 4 Bio Lab.
How did the coronavirus outbreak start? It didn't come from a lab ...

If China were to make a viral bio-weapon, it would probably be at the Wuhan lab.

The Wuhan bio lab has collected more than 2000 deadly viruses.

Chinese researchers isolated deadly bat coronaviruses near Wuhan animal market.

Virus Sparks Soul-Searching Over China's Wild Animal Trade - WSJ

Chinese government researchers isolated more than 2,000 new viruses, including deadly bat coronaviruses, and carried out scientific work on them just three miles from a wild animal market identified as the epicenter of the COVID-19 pandemic.

About three miles from Wuhan’s Level 4 bio lab is a large wet market.

Chinese frequently buy exotic meats from wet markets.

Wet market - Wikipedia

What does the word wet mean?


Some people have theorized that a worker at the bio lab sold a lab animal to a vendor at the wet market for some extra pocket money.

The customer strolls through the market and goes up to a vendor.

Suppose the customer wants a dog.

Facility and operations

The market occupied over 540,000 sq ft and had over 1,000 tenants.

It is reported to have been the largest seafood wholesale market in Central China, with wild animals sold in its western zone. The market was located in the newer part of the city, near shops and apartment blocks and about 800 meters from Hankou railway station.[12]

In late 2019, the market passed city official inspections according to The Wall Street Journal.

However, Time reported it to have “unsanitary” conditions. It had narrow lanes and stalls in close proximity, where livestock were kept alongside dead animals. According to Business Insider, it was common to see animals openly slaughtered and carcasses skinned in the market.

The New York Times reported that “sanitation was dismal with poor ventilation and garbage piled on wet floors.”

What kind of delicious meats can you buy at the Wuhan meat market other than the tasty crunchy bat?

According to media reports, besides seafood, various food items sold at the market include:

His work to expose and take down NXIVM is featured in books like “Captive” by Catherine Oxenberg, “Scarred” by Sarah Edmonson, “The Program” by Toni Natalie, and “NXIVM. La Secta Que Sedujo al Poder en México” by Juan Alberto Vasquez.

Parlato has been prominently featured on HBO’s docuseries “The Vow” and was the lead investigator and coordinating producer for Investigation Discovery’s “The Lost Women of NXIVM.” He also appeared in "Branded and Brainwashed: Inside NXIVM, and was credited in the Starz docuseries "Seduced" for saving 'slave' women from being branded and escaping the sex-slave cult known as DOS.

Additionally, Parlato’s coverage of the group OneTaste, starting in 2018, helped spark an FBI investigation, which led to indictments of two of its leaders in 2023.

Parlato appeared on the Nancy Grace Show, Beyond the Headlines with Gretchen Carlson, Dr. Oz, American Greed, Dateline NBC, and NBC Nightly News with Lester Holt, where Parlato conducted the first-ever interview with Keith Raniere after his arrest.
