Indonesia: Expat Couldn’t Believe Dog Meat Exists

www.Saynotodogmeat.NetIndonesia: Expat Couldn’t Believe Dog Meat Exists

In a recent overseas trip to Europe, I had a lengthy discussion with a dog lover in Sweden who until recently, lived in Jakarta, Indonesia for two years. He was adamant there was no dog meat in Indonesia and swore he never saw dog meat restaurants or any signs of it taking place.

As I patted his beautiful Boxer dog, I watched the man’s face go pale when I pointed out the photos of Indonesia’s dog meat trade in our SayNoToDogMeat.Net Brochure, where the dog is set on fire. I recommend he type the word Indonesia into our search-bar on this website, so he could view around 30 articles/videos concerning Indonesia. He was shocked and stunned.

www.Saynotodogmeat.Net

These Indonesian dogs have been trussed for at least 24 hours and about to be thrown on top of a public bus, to be moved across the country tied to a pole on the hot tin roof, in the full sun for several hours. When the bus engine started up the dogs all began urinating in terror, which ran down inside the bus windows, spilling onto the people riding on the bus. A young puppy was also thrown on the bus roof, inside a fully sealed plastic bag, where it thrashed violently as it suffocated.

The Swedish man had most likely been walking past dog meat restaurants and slaughterhouses in Jakarta and not even known it. When I told him some of the Indonesian dog meat code names, such as RW, the man took a step back and I could see his mind recalibrating recollections of those letters as he kept muttering the letters under his breath.

This man’s story is repeated again and again with countless visiting tourists and expats living in dog and cat eating countries. Your mind will only let you see what you can handle.

My first live-encounter with the dog meat trade many years ago was seeing two large Rottweiler dogs locked in an ex-bear cage outside a shop. I distinctly noted the stress in the dog’s eyes, but told myself its good the dog’s owners are keeping their dogs safe during the day, and taking them home at night, rather than letting them run loose and play on the road. I was completely WRONG! These were not pet dogs. The Rottweilers were dog meat dogs but my mind was not ready.

www.SayNoToDogMeat.Net

The plastic bag contains a live fully conscious puppy, which began thrashing violently when the bag was sealed and thrown on top of the hot tin bus roof. The puppy was suffocating inside the plastic, in the hot sun.

The next day the dog meat trade hit me like a train. I almost fainted, vomited, ran backwards, ran forwards, and exploded in rage all at once as I watched in stunned disbelief at a middle-aged woman kill a Golden Labrador dog, to cook it and eat it. I went into full shock, crying, shaking, retching, and so on.

My point is that immediately after I suffered such a huge reaction it was as if scales were removed from eyes because all of a sudden I could clearly see the dog meat trade was everywhere I looked. I had been walking amongst it but my eyes had been veiled, to protect me emotionally. The yellow Labrador dog was the reason I took up fighting to end this trade.

All tourists traveling to dog and cat eating countries have walked amongst the pet meat trade, in one way or another, whether they recognised it or not. Example: if you see a tiny little bamboo cage on the side of the pavement, most likely it’ll be a live cat cage to advertise fresh cat meat. Driving along roads if you see dogs lounging in cages, they are dog meat dogs advertising freshly killed dogs; in other words you just passed a dog meat slaughterhouse and maybe a restaurant too. Any sign saying: RW in Indonesia is for a dog meat restaurant.

Liberia: Basenji Dogs Eaten For Dog Meat

www.Saynotodogmeat.Net Liberia: Basenji Dogs Eaten For Dog Meat

Miss Miller lived in Monrovia, Liberia for over 30 years as a US Lutheran Missionary literacy teacher, up until the Liberian Civil War in the 1990s. The following is from her recollections of time spent with Liberia’s Basenji dogs, the barkless dogs which were part of her everyday life in Liberia.

For more than 30 years Miss Miller walked to villages in an 18 mile radius from her station. “Apart from the barkless dogs, I didn’t see any other kind of dogs in the area during the decades I was in Liberia. It was too difficult to bring in pets to Liberia, so we made pets of the dogs and cats we found there.”

Towns were built in circles, called quarters, and made up of family units. This was done to ward off attacks from other family units from other towns. The dogs roamed through the quarters by day and slept outside at night. They were excellent watch dogs, even though silent.

If any dog bothered the village livestock they would be roughly punished or immediately shot. Any dog killed, of course, was eaten. If a dog snapped or tried to steal food, it was a sure death for the dog; then eaten According to Miss Miller, local dogs usually only lived to 3 or 4 years old before being eaten by the villagers.

“Of course they were breeding all the time, so there were many dogs.”

Driver ants, very common in the area, were both ruthless and terrible predators that cut to pieces anything animal in their path. If a litter of puppies was on the ground and in their path, the puppies would be eaten clean to the bone by morning.”

Life in the villages was harsh for the dogs. All had worms. “Their droppings looked like a pile of linguini. Some had tape worms and you would see a bit of worm dangling from the back end of the dogs,” she recalled.

As time moved on, medical students worked at the Mission Hospital hailing from Columbia Presbyterian, who learned how to spay and neuter dogs and cats, in addition to tending people. “I would get worming medicine for my dogs from the doctors.”

In the villages, every nursing mother had a Basenji. Their job was to come when the mother called them, and the dogs would clean the babies. “I guess the dogs got some nutrition from that,” Miss Miller said. “It is not something that many people would find appetizing, but it’s what was done.”

Towns were usually next to the river, and there was a prescribed order for water use. The most upstream portion of the river was for drinking water, the next area was for the men to wash, next was where the women bathed. Downstream from the bathing area was where the women did their laundry and finally, the lowest area used as the community latrine.

“Of course the village upstream used the same system, so it was all for nothing as everything washed down from village to village.” The dogs, of course did not pay attention to the system and drank wherever it was convenient.

Miss Miller’s dogs lived to the age of 15 or so, and the villagers treated her dogs differently in deference to her. But, she recalled that her Basenjis were often accused of killing a chicken, and it would cost her 50 to 75 cents to rectify the supposed theft.

Even though she kept her dogs for all the years she was stationed in Liberia, she knows that they were probably eaten when she left. “They wouldn’t touch my dogs while I was there, but once gone, it was a natural thing to eat them.”

Only one village, she recalled, did not eat dogs. That is because dogs were the Taboo animal. Each village had a taboo animal that they never ate. The taboo was based on legends, passed on from generation to generation in a family quarter. If a person ate the taboo, they believed their teeth would fall out and bad occurrences happened because someone in the village bad eaten a taboo.

The dog taboo was held in one village because of a story that a dog had defended a chief from an attacking leopard. The dog did not live, but the courage to protect the chief was revered and it was taboo for anyone in that village to eat any dog (end of article recollections.)

SayNoToDogMeat.Net: 2015, Monrovia, Liberia has gone on to have a large dog meat trade where dogs are brutally slaughtered for meat. Liberia has been fighting to gain control of the Ebola virus since March 2014.

Thailand: Family Business Dog Meat Slaughterhouse

www.Saynotodogmeat.NetThailand: Family Business Dog Meat Slaughterhouse

This small dog was butchered as a dog-meat-dog in Sakon Nakhon province, Thailand, where it’s being roasted over open flames to burn it’s fur off in preparation to eat it. The slaughter operation is run by a Thai family in Dong Madai village, who boast of killing at least 20 dogs a week to sell to neighbors and local dog meat restaurants.

For years Thailand was marketed as not having a dog meat trade. It was openly acknowledged Thailand was a main dog-meat-dog  trafficking hub, from Thailand through Laos and into Vietnam. However, the argument was still made against Thailand having a pet meat trade.

Overwhelming evidence from Thai authorities has proved Thailand has an active dog and cat meat trade, involving dog skins for leather, trafficking cats, trafficking dogs and the sale of freshly cooked dog meat along road side eateries.

As well as the ‘usual’ dog meat trade, in research we also uncovered a hideously cruel group of Vietnamese men who reside in Thailand and use guerrilla warfare style booby-traps designed to cause injury, pain as they trap dogs for dog meat.

The traps are triggered by a tripwire, which snap shut on the dog’s mouth, as sharp wooden nails are driven through the dog’s lips, sealing it’s upper and lower jaw, making breathing almost impossible. The dog is contained by a length of wire and a rope noose. To read more: click here.

The dog meat trade has nothing to do with culture or tradition. It is purely animal cruelty which must be brought to an end. Please sign our Saynotodogmeat.Net petitions below and help us in our fight to end the global pet meat trade.

China: Woman Skins Live Cat For Cat Meat, In Main Street

www.Saynotodogmeat.Net China: Woman Skins Live Cat For Cat Meat, In Main Street

Driving along the road in China, an animal lover was horrified to see a fellow Chinese woman skinning a live cat. The driver pulled over for a moment and took three photographs to show the cat was alive and kicking in pain, as proof of the atrocity. Shockingly, pedestrians walking past didn’t even blink.

There is absolutely NO excuse for anyone to inflict such deliberate agony upon a living creature. This cat was  alive and fully conscious as the woman hung it by the neck from a pole on the street and began callously skinning it.

Remember, these photos were taken after the driver saw what was taking place, then pulled over to the side of the road, got their camera and the took the photos from inside their car. That is a lot of time for the cat to be thrashing in pain!

There are no domestic-animal cruelty laws in China so as long as the woman claims the cat is hers, she is not breaking any laws. Consequently, the driver of the car was not in a position to stop the woman and if they had approached the woman to demand she stop the cruelty, they may have been the one whom ended up being arrested.

The argument is not about the person taking the photographs. The focus must be on the woman inflicting the cruelty upon a live and innocent cat!

Because women are supposed to be nurturers, it always stuns me when I see women brutalizing animals. This woman may be a mother with children, who in other ways is no different from any other woman, except that she’s a cold-blooded killer without a scrap of empathy for the animal which she is inflicting pain upon. I have witnessed female dog butchers killing dogs in real life and they almost made me vomit.

Please know all our team at Saynotodogmeat.Net absolutely HATE these images as much as you do. We are forced to publish them to raise awareness for the desperate plight of animals in the pet meat trade. We will not stop fighting until we shut this bloody disgusting trade down and end it for good!

Lastly, we implore cat lovers to stand with us because we are fighting just as hard for cats as for dogs. We need more cat lovers to join their voice with us because being an observer from the distance doesn’t help the cats. We need your voice. I have three indoor cats of my own and all our team are huge cat lovers.

Our job is not done until we shut the dog AND cat meat trade down. Both pet meat trades have to go. The cruelty has gone on for long enough and its time for it to end.

Michele Brown.

China: Dog Meat Deliveries

www.Saynotodogmeat.Net China: Dog Meat Deliveries

Local people don’t even blink when another shipment of dogs are driven past, in cages, heading to the local dog slaughterhouse or dog meat restaurant.

Please take note of the top photo – see the black dog tightly tied down on top of the cages? Look how tightly the dog is roped down across its abdomen; this would no doubt be very painful.

In the lower left cage you will see tightly tied plastic sacks, which appear to have something in them. There is every chance that either live puppies or live cats are inside the tied sacks.

www.Saynotodogmeat.Net

Notice the black dog strapped down on top of the cages; the rope is pulled tight across it’s belly area.

www.Saynotodogmeat.Net

An everyday occurrence in China, consequently very few people pay any attention to the dogs and cats in the meat trade as they are driven through cities to dog butchers and slaughterhouses.

Dog Meat Dog’s Despair

www.Saynotodogmeat.Net Dog Meat Dog’s Despair

With his dull dry fur, skinny body and sunken eyes, would you like him better if he was cuter? He doesn’t command any attention, his demeanor is broken and his spirit crushed. If he stood upright and stared into the camera with a wry smile, would you stop and admire him?

This dog is probably worm infested and never known a kind human in his whole short life. He’s probably never laid on a sofa and watched television while being fed snacks by a loving owner. If he had been a pet, then he’s probably haunted by his memories of love which is lost.

Look carefully at how awful his coat is, which is just a sign of the rotten life he’s lead. Somehow he’s survived this far, but now his luck has run out. No-one is going to stop and beg to save him. There’s no activists laying down crying on his behalf. He’s probably not pretty enough.

If he’d have had the opportunity to have known love from a human, he would have had so much to give! He could have been just as loyal as a beautiful German Shepherd or a proud Standard Poodle. But he drew the short straw and was born into poverty where he was malnourished from the day he was born.

For the final insult of his short but troubled life, he will be brutally slaughtered by the hands of a heartless dog butcher. But he does win one prize: in the dog meat world this dog is a winner because black dogs are the prized number one dog to kill and eat.

It is falsely believed that eating the meat or drinking the blood of a black dog will bring extra powers and heightened libido to any man. It’s complete codswallop but dog butcher’s peddle the false belief to charge more money for black dogs. Everything in the pet-meat trade always comes back to making a quick dollar.

The dog in this photograph represents all the hundreds of thousands of nameless, faceless dog meat dogs and cats which never get their turn in the spotlight. I’ve seen the same types of dogs in real life and when their eyes lock onto to yours for a brief moment, you can see them quickly examining if you are their savior. Is it you who has come to rescue them? You can actually see a brief glimmer of hope – but in the blink of an eye all hope is quickly replaced in their face by the ongoing gnawing pain of invisibility and rejection. It is one of the saddest parts of going into dog and cat meat markets.

[For readers who wish to object to me not rescuing every dog meat dog or cat I come across, please remember that usually rescue is not an option. Slaughterhouses are not pet shops and becoming emotional in front of dog butchers or threatening them with violence is out of the question unless you have a death wish.]

VIDEO – Arizona, USA: Religious Based Cat Killing

www.SayNoToDogMeat.Net VIDEO – Arizona, USA: Religious Based Cat Killing

This is amongst the worst stories of deliberate animal abuse against a defenseless kitten you will come across. In 2012 the healthy four month old kitten, known as Thomas, was buried alive up to his chest in wet concrete which had just been poured, with just his head and one front leg free, in a drainage pipe which was exposed upright to the blistering hot Arizona sun.

18 hours later, the entombed and distraught frail kitten was discovered by workmen who arrived to continue work on a horse enclosure, in Colorado City, Arizona. The kitten was in agony, severely dehydrated from screaming and in terrible shape from fighting against the hardened concrete which was suffocating his entire body.

But there is another twist to this story! Colorado City, Arizona was the home base of Warren Jeffs, arrested for rape, convicted felon and head of a polygamist community. He was the leader of the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints (FLDS), which practices polygamy and a host of related crimes against women and children, including sexually assaulting two underage girls he had wed.

Jeffs is in a prison in Palestine, Texas,  serving a life term plus 20 years, but his followers believe he is a prophet. Not many people escape from FLDS but two former members of the FLDS Church, Andrew Chatwin and his friend Wyler, had been outspoken against FLDS.

Warren Jeffs.

The horse enclosure where the kitten was entombed belonged to Wyler and the person building the enclosure for Wyler was his best friend Chatwin.

Arriving on the job-site, Chatwin heard the screams of a frantic kitten and found the live kitten buried up to it’s neck in hardened concrete. He cut the post, took as much of the concrete from the kitten as possible and drove it to Best Friend’s Animal Sanctuary outside of Kanab, 45 minutes away.

Chatwin told the press he believes the cruel attack on the kitten was a hate message as an act of retaliation from towns people, for himself and Wyler speaking out  against the church. Chatwin said “It had to have been done right after I left,” because concrete dries quickly in the hot Arizona sun.

Alive – distraught and exhausted, the four month old kitten is entombed in hardened concrete – in the full sun.

Chatwin claims both the threats and the animal killings have been going on for years and said it is a pattern for the FLDS to treat apostates (people who have left the church) and non-members in this fashion. People are running over horses and breaking their backs and running horses off cliffs. It’s a pattern of hate towards people who are standing up, said Chatwin.

The Best Friend’s team were horrified at what they saw: the live kitten was covered in hardened concrete, all over his face and entire body. The veterinarian team said they have dealt with animal car-accident victims, chemical burn victims, cruelty cases and more, but they have never been more distressed than they were, because of what happened to Thomas and the vicious cruelty deliberately inflicted upon his innocence, according to Gregory Castle, CEO Best Friends Animal Society.

www.SayNoToDogMeat.Net

Alive – and desperate to be free of the agony the hardened concrete is causing to his frail body.

The team of vets immediately administered pain relief to Thomas and did their best to stabilize him. Sadly he had to be euthanized a few days later, because his injuries were more than his frail little body could bare.

At the time of this shocking attack, Best Friends Arizona had already served the Arizona animal community  for 28 years and had witnessed thousands of animals in the final minutes of life. The veterinary team said it was the most moving and saddening event they have dealt with in their entire 28 years, knowing that the kitten was an adorable happy, healthy kitten with his life infront of him, but was set upon by by a human(s) whose cruelty could not be undone.

Because the perpetrators were never found or brought to justice, Best Friends offered a US$5,000.00 cash reward for information and conviction of the person(s) responsible for the attack against Thomas. If you have information, please contact the Mohave (Arizona) County Sheriff’s Office at 800-526-1911.

www.SayNoToDogMeat.Net

Alive – four month old kitten’s body is entombed in hardened concrete.

Chatwin said when he reported the crime to Colorado City sheriffs, they didn’t seem too concerned.

“[The officer] kind of chuckled and laughed a little bit and then he said that if it was up to him, he’d just throw dirt on [the cat],” Chatwin said. “And this is coming from a city marshal who’s a member of the FLDS Church.”

The U.S. Justice Department filed a lawsuit against government officials in Colorado City, and the neighboring border town of Hildale, Utah, for alleged civil rights violations, including acting as de-facto agents for the church, denying ex-members and non-members of the FLDS Church access to everything from police services to housing and utilities, according to KSTU-TV.

“Colorado City government keep starving people right out of the community,” Chatwin said. “To where they can’t get employment, they can’t get decent service. I can’t even use the Hildale clinic that (is) here. I have to travel a half-hour, 45 minutes just to get a doctor’s visit.”

Chatwin said other dead animals have been placed on Wyler’s property, and he videotaped those incidents as well.

www.SayNoToDogMeat.Net

This live kitten was used for revenge in a religious dispute.

Chatwin claims dead animals have been scattered all over the property of Isaac Wyler, who works on behalf of a Utah Judge in the polygamist towns. Wyler said he has been receiving these “messages” using dead cats, chickens and ducks. The message, he claims, is from the FLDS Church intimidating him to stop his work. “I have to take it as a hate message,” Chatwin said.

Saynotodogmeat.Net: the four month old kitten died because of people’s religious beliefs, which although not directly connected to cat meat, untold numbers of cats are killed in the cat meat trade because of religions. Cat and dog meat is ordered for main christian festivals such as Christmas, weddings, funerals and so on. Cats are also killed for religious sacrifices and their meat eaten, in some countries. Cats are killed for countless reasons and religion is one of them. Thomas, the kitten was killed for religious revenge because people dared to leave the church and then tell their story. As a team, we felt Thomas’s story should be told!

This year Saynotodogmeat.Net will be exposing the role religion plays in the dog and cat meat trade. Meanwhile, we have just announced Operation Unite will be held next year, on Sunday October 2nd and Monday 3rd, 2016. We hope you will join with us and be part of it too.

Michele Brown.

Indonesia: RW or B1 = Dog Meat

www.SayNoToDogMeat.Net Indonesia: RW or B1 = Dog Meat

Tourist hot spot Indonesia has a rampant dog and cat meat trade which is relatively disguised from the view of most international tourists. If you see a sign which reads RW or B1, you are looking at a dog meat restaurant.

Dogs are easily stolen in Indonesia, where they are often swooped upon by men on motorbikes, using wire nooses to slip over the dog’s neck and drag the dog away on the ground, until they feel its safe enough to stop and pick the dog up. We know of a lady whose dog was stolen in these exact same circumstances, whilst she was walking her dog along a back road.

Once in the hands of dog snatchers the dog’s mouth is bound tightly shut, often to the point the dog is unable to even pant, which is particularly cruel in the hot Indonesian climate. The dog’s legs are tightly trussed and the dog is crammed into a plastic sack which is tightly tied around it’s neck, with just the dog’s head protruding.

Dogs are left in this pitiful state until sold to a dog butcher and finally slaughtered, which can be days.

More and more we are seeing evidence that dog’s are having their front legs wrenched back and upwards, with their front paws trussed tightly up over their spine – in a contortionist movement, except the dogs are left like this for days and the front legs are used as carry handles to throw the dogs around, as opposed to lifting them.

Carrying dogs from the front legs wrenched back and up places the dog’s full body weight onto the lighter front limbs and causes the dog’s shoulder joints to separate, causing excrutiating pain.

Please support our new petition to Indonesia, listed below, and help us fight to end Indonesia’s cruel dog and cat meat trade. On a good note, Indonesia has many wonderful animal lovers which joined us in our Global March on April 4 and 5, 2015.

This beautiful video shows the amazing people from Animal Defenders Indonesia, in our march on April 5, in Jakarta, Indonesia. This video is inspiring!

Vietnam: Pet Dog Stolen By Dog Thieves

www.SayNoToDogMeat.Net Vietnam: Pet Dog Stolen By Dog Thieves

The dog was known as Pốp and to keep her safe, her owners made sure she slept inside the house every night, alongside the family. It was a shocking discovery on April 5th for the family to be woken up and discover they were being robbed and that Pốp had been stolen. They had been robbed by dog thieves who maraud the area, looking for dogs and cats to steal, to sell to local dog butchers.

Horrified by what had happened, the family set out searching for Pốp, which forced them to go to dog slaughterhouses and dog meat restaurants, as they desperately searched for their pet dog.

But it was hopeless. Pốp was nowhere to be found. The family could not stop crying and every time they talked about her, they gave way to more tears. They’d raised Pốp since she was a tiny puppy, just a few weeks old and she was a loved family member.

www.SayNoToDogMeat.Net

Pốp as a baby puppy.

Four days later a miracle occurred! A badly injured Pốp limped through the front door and into the arms of her family. No-one in the family could contain themselves, especially the 11 year-old daughter, who called Pốp “her dog”,  but this time it was all happy tears!

Pốp’s face had been hacked by some sort of machete type blade, but somehow she manged to break free and find her way back home. The family rallied around their traumatized dog and nursed her back to health with antibiotics and a lot of love. By April 18th Pốp’s head wounds were 50% healed and she was regaining her weight back.

www.SayNoToDogMeat.Net

Pốp’s face when she arrived back home and a week later when she was healing up.

In an unbelievably cruel twist, 10 days after the first attack from the dog thieves, they came back for revenge! The first time they stole Pốp she fought her killers and escaped, but this time they poisoned her and left her for her family to see. The date was April 21st.

With the family’s young daughter at school and her father at work, the mother was at home by herself that morning when dog thieves through a bait over their fence and into the yard . Seeing Pốp suddenly fall to the ground, the wife did all she could but Pốp died in her arms as she wept uncontrollably.

It is unimaginable what the family must be going through. It also gives us a window into the depth of cruelty dog thieves are willing to stoop to, to make a point. Not only did the dog thieves break into a peace abiding family home to steal the pet dog, they came back a second time to finish the job off.

These dog thieves severely hurt the entire family, including the young child,  who were just going about their life in a normal way, with a loved family dog which lived indoors.

www.SayNoToDogMeat.Net

Pốp as a puppy.

It is no wonder Vietnamese pet owners are taking on vigilante justice against dog and cat thieves. This family has been robbed of a loved family member plus their right to feel safe within their own house. It will be a long time before their lives can be restored to the feeling of safety they once knew and before the pain in their heart at losing Pốp subsides.

Pốp will always live on in their hearts, but she was a young healthy dog who was loyal to the family and showed courage and tenacity to find her way home after suffering shocking trauma from dog thieves and a butcher.

When reading this story, please think of the many pet lovers living within Vietnam and the daily struggle they are forced to go through, which many other pet owners in other countries are never faced with. All pet owners in pet meat-eating countries are constantly under stress to protect their pet 24 hours a day.

Saynotodogmeat.Net is fighting to help pet owners by pressing forward in our strategic plan to end the cruel dog and cat meat trade and shut it down for good. Law abiding citizens have a right to own a pet in peace and safety  without being set upon by criminals fueled by greed.

Indonesia: Cruelty In It’s Dog Meat Trade

www.SayNoToDogMeat.Net Indonesia: Cruelty In It’s Dog Meat Trade

Please take a moment and look closely at the state of the dogs in the photograph, at an Indonesian dog slaughterhouse. Notice the way the front legs are wrenched backwards and tied up high, across the top of the dog’s spine. Note the hind legs are also tightly trussed.

From the picture alone I cannot see if the dog’s mouth is bound shut, but usually the mouth is the first thing to be bound tightly shut, often prohibiting the dog to pant, which is particularly cruel in the hot Indonesian climate.

Looking at the photo I can see three dogs but do not know how many were originally packed in with them (the third dog is on the far left, with cream fur.)

For dogs to be left for hours, if not days in this state is just plain cruel. The pain in their shoulders and legs must be excruciating. Some of the dogs may already have dislocated shoulder joints because when dogs are trussed and hog-tied such as this, people use the dog’s front legs, which are wrenched backward and up and tied across their spine, as carry handles to haul the dogs around by.

Dogs scream in agony as their shoulders are forced to take their entire body weight and it’s not unusual for their shoulders to pop out of joint. The dogs are already in a vulnerable state, having been starved of food and water since being captured, so to be trussed and hog-tied as well causes serious stress for them, especially when they are unable to cool their core body temperature by panting.

I would like to remind you that the Philippines became famous for all the wrong reasons when it’s barbaric dog and cat meat trade was exposed. Of all the terrible things practiced against dogs and cats in the Philippines pet meat trade, the main contention was the absolute cruel method of handling the animals prior to death.

The Philippines is still known for trussing and hog-tying dogs exactly the same as Indonesia is now doing. Photographs of distressed Filipino dogs being carried around by their front legs tied up over their spine, as handles, by Filipino dog meat workers still cause outrage even to today.

It was these accounts that pressured the Filipino government to implement laws, which were then ignored and not implemented. But animal lovers refused to remain quiet and recently those existing laws were toughened up, with harsh penalties. The Philippines still has work to do, but they are at least addressing some of the issues.

Indonesia has now brought the spotlight onto itself. This is not about tradition or cultural practices. This is down right animal cruelty at its lowest. It is also an insult to all the thousands of wonderful Indonesian animal lovers who are appalled by the lack of accountability which animal abusers are allowed to operate within.

I have not even touched the subject of health and lack of hygiene within such an unregulated trade, as Indonesia’s pet meat trade.

Between carrying alive dogs are around by their front legs which are wrenched backwards across their spine and setting alive dogs on fire, Indonesia you have out attention and we are watching very closely. Its time to end the brutal trade and shut it down for good!
