That video was uploaded on Oct 5, 2011 293,298 total views.

This activity of selling baby turtles legal or not, has been going on for YEARS. $0.80 for 1 baby turtle is cheap. In NYC they're usually $3-$7 each.

Don't know what the point of posting the link does, but if it bothers you that much buy a plane ticket to China & locate the remote region of where that vendor is selling these hatchlings and do what this youtube user suggested....
