【看CP學英文】夾娃娃機在台灣處處可見,裡面的獎品近期也越來越吸引人,從小音響到iPhone,許多人經過會試試手氣,渴望以10元換來超值商品。然而昨天卻有網友發現無良業者竟在娃娃機內擺放活生生的鸚鵡,無助的小鳥在機台內無處可逃,任人投錢夾取。

Claw machines can be seen in almost every arcade in Taiwan. The machines’ many prizes, ranging from tiny speakers to smartphones, have made it increasingly popular among the young and the young at heart.

However, a recent video showing a young parrot offered as a prize in a claw machine has sparked outrage in Taiwan.

The helpless creature was filmed trying to escape the mechanical claw.

臉書粉絲專頁「ONLY1 鸚鵡抱抱~愛鳥的社團」有民眾將心疼的畫面捕捉下來,顧客不斷投錢移動爪子,試圖瞄準鸚鵡的頭頂抓取,而影片中也可見鸚鵡驚恐的拍動翅膀,縮在角落,為了躲避機器的爪子也數次衝撞玻璃,讓網友看得非常不忍。

The video was posted to Facebook group “ONLY1 Parrot hugsbird lovers group”  (ONLY1 鸚鵡抱抱~愛鳥的社團」) which showed customers trying time and again to capture the bird.

With the mechanical claw aimed directly at the bird’s head, the tiny creature is seen flapping its wings and trying to hide in the corner of the machine. The 28-second video also saw the bird attempting to break free by flying towards the glass windows, but to no avail.

這樣的行為太惡劣了吧!在網路看到的影片#拜託大家注意附近的機台#靠大家的力量救救可憐小金#請大家看清楚上面的標題不要在那邊冤枉我救鳥才是最重要

據了解,此機台位在高雄,而原po也呼籲大家要多注意附近機台是否也有可能涉及虐待動物行為,觸犯《動物保護法第六條::「任何人不得騷擾、虐待或傷害動物。」最重可處2年以下有期徒刑,併科20萬至200萬元罰金。

According to various comments, the machine is most likely located in Kaohsiung.

The person who released the video asked local residents to look for other claw machines that may be doing the same to other animals.

The actions of both the claw machine owner and the customers may be in violation of article 6 of the“Animal Protection Act,” which states that anyone harassing, abusing or hurting animals can be fined up to NT$ 2 million and jailed for 2 years or less.

憤怒的網友看到影片後也紛紛在貼文下留言「哪一個縣市」、「一點都不好玩」、」、「真是太可惡了,為什麼要這樣對待動物」「直接打破玻璃,台主就會出現了」。

Furious netizens also took to the comment section questioning the location of the claw machine and the owner, while others say the “game” is not funny, but abusive.
