Market participants are concerned about the negative influence of low commodity prices on Indonesia’s export performance. Everyday, countless thousands of dogs (many former pets) are inhumanely caged, beaten, tortured, killed and butchered, often times publicly, to feed the Chinese demand for dog meat. To actually witness the facts of their pain and suffering in modern day China is unsettling and disturbing, to say the least! As dogs and cats become elevated as they are now in China as pets you will see this practice disappear.
It has been documented recently that the overall demand for dog meat has been decreasing in China and that there are fewer dog farms now, due to the low dog meat prices. However, these are the lucky ones – this year alone, millions of other dogs (and cats) will be slaughtered in the most brutal manner in hellish meat markets in China. I will boycott China and any American company that is doing or supporting torture or cruelty to animals.
It was horrible in every sense of the word – the stench (so familiar from our visits to live animal markets), the blood-curdling cries coming from the cages as the terrified dogs bit into each and, as always, the terrible feeling we all get when we look into the haunting, sad eyes of these beautiful animals. I am doing a blog post on the market and came across your article while researching.
If you did the same, you would see that every single day there are horrific cases of animal cruelty happening all across the United States…obviously not on the same scale as in China but still a disgrace. So, first animal rights activists need to focus on what is happening in their own backyard first and once the United States is a shining example of animal welfare rights, then they can channel their energies towards other countries, like China. Excellent lens if i have power i will kill all those guys and feed them to dogs( i am an animal lover). This is not a meat market in some remote area where no one can see what is happening.
