Dogs Smuggled For Slaughter Are Rescued By Thai Authorities

| Filed under: Sad SadAnimal RightsDogRescueAnimal Cruelty

It's so sad to see these dogs being treated and held in such deplorable conditions.

Over a thousand dogs were rescued by Thai authorities after four trucks filled with cages of dogs were stopped in the Nakhon Phanom province of Thailand.

The dogs were to be sent across a Laos river and into Vietnam to be slaughtered and sold for dog meat.

Out of the thousands of dogs, 119 were already dead either from suffocation or from being thrown into the trucks by the alleged traffickers.

Police arrested two Thai men and a Vietnamese man - both have been charged with trafficking and illegally transporting animals. They face a maximum punishment of one year in jail and a fine of up to $670.

Traffickers round up stray dogs around rural Thai villages and sell them for up to $33 per dog in Vietnam where they are "destined to be cooked and eaten."

Thankfully, these lucky few were rescued.
