I know I've seen (as recently as a couple of weeks ago) frozen pint  
tubs of pig's and duck blood in some of the Chinese markets we frequent.

I have no idea what the target consumer uses pig's blood for, but I've  
seen cooked duck's blood, coagulated into a block that looks like milk- 
chocolate tofu, which then gets sliced or diced and cooked like tofu...
