I'm glad to see the Chinese are cracking down on this kind of thing 

'115 accused of gambling on insect fights' - headline, Associated Press.

Apparently they were using a "cricket lovers' association" as a front. It is entirely unclear from the story whether the cricketophilia in question refers to the sport, or the beetle.

The Chinese, not lacking for jail space, are holding all 115 men in custody pending indictment.
