China arrests three for endangered animal trade

Comments Off on China arrests three for endangered animal trade

BEIJINGChinese police have busted a criminal gang involved in illegal trade of endangered animals, seizing hundreds of bear paws, bear meat and animal carcasses from their possession, local officials said.

Three men, all natives of the region, were arrested in a rented residence in the regional capital of Nanning this month after a three-month investigation, according to Nanning city police.

Authorities believe at least 43 black bears were slaughtered for the bear paws. The animals and their body parts are believed to be worth 20 million yuan ($3.15 million), Xinhua news agency reported.

Some of the carcasses, including those of pangolins and tortoises, were sealed in a refrigerator and disguised as tea, police said.

Police said the suspects ordered the endangered animals from the city of Dongxing, which borders Vietnam’s city of Mong Cai to the south, and sold them in southern Chinese cities, including Nanning, Guangzhou and Kunming.

It is not known whether the animals were smuggled across the border.

Officials have dealt with multiple animal smuggling cases on the China-Vietnam border over the last few years, seizing snakes, cobras and turtles.

Saved from the dinner table: Activists rescue more than 500 caged dogs destined for restaurants in China

Comments Off on Saved from the dinner table: Activists rescue more than 500 caged dogs destined for restaurants in China

Barbaric: The dogs were discovered crammed into tiny cages on the back of a truck in Kunming, China

This is April 2012

“What’s happened since 2010??? NOTHING!!”

Crammed into tiny cages and enduring appalling conditions, these dogs had been destined for restaurant tables in China.

But they were saved from that fate after activists intercepted the truck carrying them.

Many of the 505 creatures had barely survived their terrible ordeal, having endured cramped conditions and a lack of water during their near 1,000 mile journey by road.

Cruel: Many of the animals, thought to be destined for a restaurant, were suffering from dehydration when they were saved

But rescue came too late for 11 dogs which had succumbed to dehydration and exposure.
The driver, who was questioned by police, said he had been employed to take the animals from Mianning county, Xichang city in the southwest of Sichuan province,to restaurants in Yulin city in south China’s Guangxiprovince.

Cruel: Many of the animals, thought to be destined for a restaurant, were suffering from dehydration when they were saved.

Suffering: Activists arrived too late to save around 11 of the dogs which had already died under the terrible conditions

Volunteers provided the dogs with water and food which they had been deprived of because of the narrow space in the truck.The trade and transportation of animals in China has come in for criticism by campaigners in the West.

Saved: Volunteers provided the dogs with water and food which they had been deprived of because of the narrow space in the truck

Some of the huge markets which sell dogs and cats to restaurants for slaughter and human consumption, came under international spot light several years ago after being the suspected origin of the deadly SARS virus.

Rescue: The activists stopped a truck carrying 505 dogs on Puji road on Thursday evening.

It is not uncommon for dogs, as well as other animals, to be crammed so tightly together into tiny metal cages they cannot even bark – an environment ripe for the spread of disease.

Business: The dogs in this case had a fortunate escape but the trade in dog meat means many more animals are not as lucky

In one of the large markets, on a 60 acre site in Guangzhou, China, cages of dogs and cats – some of them bred as domestic pets – are piled high and when an animal is chosen for sale it is bludgeoned with an iron bar until it is close to death before, being handed over to the purchaser.

Sickening: Many of the animals showed signs of the appalling conditions in which there were transported - including dehydration and other injuries

Fate: The driver of the truck told police he employed to transport dogs to a restaurant in Yulin city in south China’s Guangxi province

11 COUNTRIES WHICH STILL EAT DOG MEAT

Eleven countries around the globe still eat dog meat. They are: China, Indonesia, Korea, Mexico, Philippines, Polynesia, Taiwan, Vietnam, the Arctic and Antarctic and two cantons in Switzerland.

China: Although the Chinese were the first to domesticate the dog and keep them as pets, dog meat has been a source of food from at least the time of Confucius, and possibly even before.

Indonesia: Eating dog meat is usually associated with people from the Batak Toba culture, who cook a traditional dish named saksang that is like a dog-meat stew.

Mexico: Dogs were historically bred for their meat by the Aztecs. These dogs were called itzcuintlis, and were often pictured on pre-Columbian Mexican pottery.

Philippines: In the capital city of Manila,the law specifically prohibits the killing and selling of dogs for food except in certain circumstances including research and animal population control.

Polynesia: Dogs were historically eaten in Tahiti and other islands of Polynesia at the time of first European contact in 1769.

Taiwan: Dog meat in Taiwan is particularly eaten in the winter months, especially black dogs, which are believed to help retain body warmth.

Korea: Gaegogi literally means ‘dog meat’ in Korean. Gaegogi, however, is often mistaken as the term for Korean soup made from dog meat, bosintang. The distaste felt by dog lovers, particularly from the West, has made this dish very controversial.

Switzerland: According to a Swiss newspaper report in 1996, the Swiss rural cantons of Appenzell and St. Gallen are known to have had a tradition of eating dogs, curing dog meat into jerky and sausages, as well as using the lard for medicinal purposes.

Vietnam: Dog meat is eaten throughout Vietnam. To many Northerners, it is a popular, if relatively expensive, dinnertime restaurant meal.

Arctic and Antarctic: Dogs have historically been an emergency food source for various peoples in Siberia, Alaska, northern Canada, and Greenland. Sled dogs are usually maintained for pulling sleds, but occasionally are eaten when no other food is available.

This video was taken January 2012 – When another truck was intercepted by animal lovers.

Starving, exhausted and crammed into tiny cages, they were just hours away from being killed for restaurants.

Animal welfare volunteers and police in Chongqing, south-west China, discovered the malnourished and dehydrated animals loaded inside cages so small they couldn’t stand up.

They took them to a nearby farm where they were given food, water and emergency medical treatment, but many were too frail to survive.

After spotting the truck carrying the animals, he posted a plea on the web, begging for help in saving the dogs’ lives.

It was answered by animal welfare volunteers, and with the assistance of the police, they intercepted the vehicle at a toll gate. Many of the dogs, which were being taken to Guangdong province, in the far south of the country, were saved.

Eating dog meat in China dates back thousands of years. It is  also consumed in countries including Indonesia, Korea, Mexico, the Philippines, Taiwan and Vietnam, but is illegal in most Western countries.

Restaurants serving dog  are common in many Chinese cities, but particularly in Guangdong province, where some locals think it has medicinal properties.

Vodpod videos no longer available.

Despite proposals to ban the consumption of dog last year, and growing international opposition to the practice, the meat has continued to be sold.

Alan Knight, chief executive of International Animal Rescue, said: ‘The transport is disgusting. They cram them into small wire cages, with no food or water, and take them across the country and kill them in inhumane ways.

‘This is happening every day. The whole concept of ethics is different to ours and it will be difficult to change, but local animal welfare groups are starting to make headway.’

Twizzle’s story — from hell to heaven in one year

Comments Off on Twizzle’s story — from hell to heaven in one year

In late 2008, Twizzle was one of 149 “meat” dogs en-route to the cruel live-animal markets of Guangzhou when the truck was stopped by Qi Ming, a Chengdu rescue group, which asked for Animals Asia‘s help.

On New Year’s Eve our vet team were confronted with a truck piled high with cages holding squashed and whimpering dogs inside. Despite their amazing efforts, we lost 102 dogs that were too sick or diseased to pull through.

Volunteer vet nurse Helena Malloy was one of the team helping, one of the dogs that caught her attention was “Mummy dog”. A sweet and gentle dog, it wasn’t long before she captured Helena’s heart. Now safe and happy in the UK, this is her story.

Please help us help more dogs like Twizzle and become a Champion for Change. http://www.animalsasia.org/index.php?UID=GV6CBT2YRYF0
