Vietnam: One Ton of Cats & Chickens To Be Crushed Or Burnt – Fight Dog Meat. Breaking news: on Thursday July 14, Vietnamese officials will crush or burn half a ton of live cats and half a ton of live chickens, in the northern province of Quang Nin. The cats and chickens were seized from two trucks which were smuggling animals from China, into Vietnam. Neither driver could produce documents for their consignments, so therefore Vietnamese law stipulates illegal goods be destroyed by crushing or burning. Vietnam does not have animal protection laws and consequently does not recognize animals as sentient beings, able to perceive of feel things, therefore the animals will be treated as objects.

In January 2015 one ton of live cats were seized in Hanoi, Vietnam, after being trafficked from China. The cats were unloaded from the truck, and still entombed in the bamboo cages, the loaded cages were laid out in a line on the road. This last truckload of cats were seized at midnight on Tuesday and the chickens the next morning. Thank you for reading, Michele Brown, Founder.

At the slaughterhouse, the investigator filmed workers as they grabbed one dog after another around the neck with metal pinchers and bashed them over the head with a wooden pole.

Some dogs fell unconscious, while others cried out and writhed in agony. Some still struggled to breathe after their throats were cut before their skins were ripped off their bodies. Dogs who were next in line for slaughter wailed and barked as a worker hit them in an effort to get them to walk more slowly.
