Thai authorities have saved over 750 dogs from an illegal smuggling operation that was trying to bring them to Vietnam.

In Vietnam, dog meat is considered a delicacy, which is absolutely disgusting.

A Thai navy patrol caught the smugglers on a river, during the transportation of the dogs.

One Thai man was arrested on several charges, mainly illegal transportation of animals.

The other smugglers escaped.

All the dogs are going to be sent to a shelter, where they definitely won't be eaten.

A happy ending for hundreds of doggies!!

The Mekong River region of Southeast Asia, a biodiverse region, is threatened by deforestation, habitat loss, overdevelopment and climate change.

Yet researchers were still able to find 208 new species there.

Out of the new species, some of the coolest were a "psychedelic gecko" and a nose-less monkey with an Elvis style hair-do.

Dognapping Is A Problem in Vietnam

Filed under: Animal RightsDogDisgusting!

Doggy Dog

In Vietnam, a dog can sell for $50-100; the equivalent of the average Vietnamese man's month salary.

The dogs are sold to restaurants where they are killed, skinned and then eaten.

Disgusting.

Thieves on motorbikes ride through towns, snatching up dogs.

Most townspeople don't even call the police because there are no real penalties for dog thievery. They instead turn to vigilante justice.

Some mobs have chased down the thieves and literally clubbed them to death then lit them on fire. The thieves have also been fighting back, shooting arrows and hurling bricks at their pursuers.

A bystander was even killed after being hit in the head with a thrown brick.

The stolen dogs are rarely recovered.

The violence is coming mainly from a clash between an old and new way of thinking.

Many in Vietnam are adopting a more Western style of human-animal companionship.

A founder of animal group to raise awareness of this cruelty going on in Vietnam said:

"You are really witnessing the convergence of two trends. The old way of the dog meat trade, where animals didn't count for much, is coming up against the new trend of keeping true companion animals that are loved, nurtured and valued for their own sake."

Normally we'd say something about how they should adopt rescue dogs but we won't allow that until they stop eating them first.

Animal rights!
