After 2 weeks its now a pet. Its law. So your stuck with it. Give it a name and fix it up a home. Tell your inlaws its 2014 and its time to stop eating turtles. And spend the rest of your days feeling proud you saved at least one from their death grip.

If you set it free, someone else will kill it and cook it. 

 

Tell your in laws to stop doing stuff they cannot figure out how to do when it includes living beings.

I'm not sure if this is a culinary or a moral question. If you want to eat it, avoid drowning it in chemical. If you want to kill it humanely, also avoid drowning it in chemicals. Even the regular cooking method is more humane (boil alive in water like a shellfish). I had turtle at a wedding once. Tasted like chicken. Chinese prepare special meats in bland seasoning, to keep the flavour of the meat dominant. I'm not a fan of special meats, rare, expensive or otherwise.

Wait for it to become a teenager, and then feed it strange chemicals chemicals so it can become a mutant. Then teach it ninjitsu.

Turtles can carry salmonella. Don't touch it.

Don't kill it. Make a pet out of it, you can paint it, but don't eat it. I'd glue a hair piece on it and tell everyone it was a strange cat.

 You could also tie it on top of your head and use it for helmet when you ride your scooter, much better than any cheap helmet that you buy in China.

buy one of those big plastic tubs.  fill it with some water and put a few stones inside for it to bask in the sun.  if you don't have sunlight now bc of winter, buy a uv light.  actually turtles are real cool pets, especially if you have children.  but keep in mind, you must change that water almost daily.  they eat and defecate in the water and it turns a murky greenish color and stinks like hell..

Another wonderful Chinese national behaving like a friggin idiot.

 

Rich folks in Miami get fines for the lights on the homes that interfere with sea turtle mating and this lady drove down from Michigan to get turtle soup.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
