750 dogs tightly housed in rusty steel cages were rescued at the last minute by the Thai Navy. The dogs, about to become food for Vietnamese “connoisseurs,” were found on the side of a riverbank, about to be loaded onto trucks and sent by ferry to Laos, and then to Vietnam, “where dog meat is a delicacy,” reports the AP, which adds that last year, 2000 dogs were rescued under similar circumstances.
Which begs the question, how many dogs are killed for food each year? And, sadly, forces me to ask, howe many dogs are killed right here in America, because no one wants them.
As the “owner” of two dogs, his breaks my heart, more than I can say.
