“Stray dogs, corralled & stuffed into a wire cage on the back of a moped, destined for restaurants, along the Mekong River, Vietnam. I am posting this video to raise public awareness to the cruelty of the dog meat trade.  Please sign the petition below”.

I don’t recommend that you watch this. I post such a horrendous thing mostly because it seems that animal rights people use this video. These dogs have been captured by a dog catcher by trade and are on their way to various Vietnamese restaurants near the Mekong River. When I saw this, all kinds of ideas went through my mind as far as what was the best course of action to take and the best I got was this video. The glimpse you see of the dog catcher’s face was the only glimpse he ever gave any of the disgusted onlookers. For people visiting Vietnam, I recommend that you do not eat the goat meat (no goats.) If you eat the dog meat, you will be supporting this type of business, so also don’t order it just to try it. It’s not good and tastes exactly like a wet dog smells. I spit mine out upon realizing what I was eating.

“Please join IDA and our South Korean colleagues by signing this petition urging the South Korean government to strengthen and enforce animal protection laws so that these cruelties can be brought to an end!”

They were destined to be cooked and eaten, but these suffering dogs luckily escaped their gruesome fate.

Police in Thailand rescued more than 1,000 of the animals from tiny cages when they intercepted four trucks attempting to smuggle them out of the country.

The dogs -stacked high in scores of crates – were being transported to Vietnam as officers swooped in two raids in Nathom and Si Songkhram districts near the border with Laos.

Saved: Scores of dogs crammed into tiny cages were rescued by police as they were being smuggled out of Thailand into Vietnam where they would have been sold for their meat

Livestock officials in Nakhon Phanom confirmed 1,011 dogs were being looked after at a government shelter.

Another 119 died from suffocation in the cramped cages or when they were thrown into the trucks as the fleeing traffickers tried to speed away.

Two Thai men and a Vietnamese man have been charged with trafficking and the illegal transportation of animals.

If convicted the accused face a maximum one-year jail sentence and a fine of up to 20,000 baht ($670)

The dogs were to be taken across the Mekong river in Laos. Prices for stray dogs and pets in rural Thai villages can reach as much as  $33 an animal.

Too late to be saved: Many of these dogs died from suffocation in the tiny cages

13 COUNTRIES WHICH STILL EAT DOG MEAT

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

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.

Meat for sale: Market traders with live ducks that will be for the potMeat for sale: Market traders with live ducks that will be for the pot

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.

Bangkok, Jan 12 (IANS) Thai navy officials Thursday rescued over 800 dogs when they were about to be smuggled via the Mekong river to neighbouring Laos.

A Mekong river patrol unit headed by Captain Thirakiart Thong-aram found the dogs in 40 cases on a truck on the river bank in Ban Paeng district of Nakhon Panom province, Xinhua reported citing The Nation online.

The Mekong flows through China, Myanmar, Laos, Thailand, Cambodia and Vietnam.

A 37-year-old local villager has been arrested.

The dogs were to be transported to Laos to be sent further to Vietnam. About 100 empty cages were also found on the spot, which indicated that over 2,000 dogs might have already been smuggled to Vietnam, officials said.
