The Fuzhou National Forest Park in southeastern China’s Fujian province is a favorite tourist destination at this time of the year as visitors take delight in the riot of colors from cherry and peach blossoms.
A woman visiting the park was so thrilled by the sight that she decided to vigorously shake the trees so the petals would shower on her four little kids while a photographer recorded the staged scene, am730 newspaper reported on Tuesday.
Nice idea for a lovely picture, except that it did much damage to the trees.
Witnesses said several other park visitors tried to stop the woman from inflicting further damage to the trees.
But to their shock and dismay, the woman reportedly told them: “Why the concern? These flowers will come off sooner or later.”
Following her example, her kids soon started shaking other trees and broke several branches in the process.
Their mother, instead of asking them to stop, gave them a round of applause and encouraged them to do the same thing to more trees.
Many passersby said they were disgusted by the woman’s behavior, calling it a shame.
