Thousands of pets are stolen from gardens and front porches every year
SEVEN TONNES of live dogs are shipped to Vietnam capital Hanoi each day
As they are sold by weight, they are force fed through funnels to add value
If thieves are caught by police, they usually get off with small fines
Some diners believe the more an animal suffers before death, the tastier it is
The shocking practices have been revealed by C4's Unreported World.
Many are stolen by thieves who drive round the streets at night on mopeds using lassos to catch unsuspecting pets.
Because they are sold by weight, they are force fed through funnels to increase their value before being hosed down and tightly packed in cages.
Nguyen Tien Tung is just the sort of man you'd expect to run a Hanoi slaughterhouse: wiry, frenetic and filthy, his white T-shirt collaged with bloodstains, his jean shorts loose around taut, scratched-up legs, his feet squelching in plastic sandals. Hunched over his metal stall, between two hanging carcasses and an oversized tobacco pipe, the 42-year-old is surveying his killing station – an open-air concrete patio leading on to a busy road lined with industrial supply shops.
Two skinless carcasses, glistening pure white in the hot morning sun, are being rinsed down by one of Nguyen's cousins. Just two steps away are holding pens containing five dogs each, all roughly the same size, some still sporting collars. Nguyen reaches into one cage and caresses the dog closest to the door. As it starts wagging its tail, he grabs a heavy metal pipe, hits the dog across the head, then, laughing loudly, slams the cage door closed.
You'd never like your pet to be stolen. Dogs are source of unconditional love and support and it is time we come together for them. Your voice has power! Your voice matters! One signature can make a dog look forward to a loving home. I am doing this because I share the planet, I don't own it. We couldn't save the dogs already dead but we are still not late in making the world a safer place.
Humans do not need to bathe their soul with another animal's blood. Their only crime is they are an animal and killing them feeds your ego. I dare you, watch 30 minutes of a slaughterhouse video and you'd not see a meat market the Same way again! Make a change by taking a chance, TODAY!!!
