Farmer keeps 100-year-old mother in pigsty

11 posts in this topic

A Chinese farmer has come under fire for keeping his 100-year-old mother in a pigsty, prompting a debate over how China cares for its elderly.

Chen Shoutian, from Guanyun county in Jiangsu province, has faced a barrage of online criticism since a local television station broadcast a report claiming his mother had spent two years sharing a cramped, cinderblock shack with a 440lb sow.

What a horrible excuse for a son. I'm assuming when he gets that old he will be glad to move in there too. He should get back what he dishes out.

No complaints from the pig? I mean the 400 lb sow, not his mother.

that is nasty! however it says in the article that one of the relatives tried to get her to leave and she refuses. apparently she's decided she likes it there.

no doubt she is mentally not entirely there at 100 yrs old but i got the impression she was free to go at any time.

I seem to recall a thread here at UM where a disabled person in China was being kept in a cage or something like that .

Strange ways of looking after the elderly or disabled .

TiP.

....as compared to leaving them unattended in a mixed hospital ward to die slowly of starvation and dehydration?

My father's response when I showed him this story? 'Is this a threat?'
