Every year, an estimated 1 million dogs are brutally captured and transported throughout Indonesia, crammed into sacks and cages, their mouths bound shut so tightly they can hardly breathe. They are taken on long, grueling journeys to markets and slaughterhouses. For those who survive, they watch other dogs being brutally slaughtered while they wait their turn. The trade is cruel and dangerous, and it must stop!
Lola Webber, Dog Meat-Free Indonesia campaign coordinator & Change For Animals Foundation founder, says ‘The animals we saw at the markets were terrified and often sick and injured, after surviving grueling journeys to market and rough handling by traders.
‘It was like walking through hell. They huddled together in cages, trembling with fear as they watched others being killed around them, waiting their turn.
‘The sight of absolute terror in their eyes, the thumping of the club as they were bludgeoned, their screams of pain, and the smell of burning hair and flesh, were appalling and unforgettable.’
