CHINA: RESCUED! RACING GREYHOUND DOGS ON THE MEAT TRUCK IN XI’AN.
Rescue 724: this morning around 400 dogs were rescued – including GREYHOUND racing dogs.The greyhounds are most likely progeny of export greyhounds from Ireland, Australia or the UK. The progeny greyhounds are used to race on sub-standard tracks – often illegal gambling tracks. The greys are raced into the ground and when injured or too slow, they’re sold into the dog meat trade. Females are bred like machines before being sold for dog meat. Its all about the money! Please view PART 1 (the previous post), to see the full video of this rescue situation, and unloading of dogs off the truck. PREVIOUS VIDEO POST: APPROX 400 DOGS ARE NOW SAFE, THANK YOU TO XI’AN ANIMAL RESCUERS. It was a long night when the loaded dog truck was first spotted in Xi’an. Rescuers pressured the dog trafficker and eventually he signed over the dogs. Xi’an rescuers had to act fast and erect a dog fence on a piece of land for the dogs to be unloaded. Temperatures hovered around 41C (100F) and the dogs and rescuers were all sweltering. My favorite part of this video is when the rescuers are unloading the dogs, using a big red sheet to catch the dogs in! Thank you to the great team of animal lovers in Xi’an for all your hard work. I look forward to bringing you updates on the progress of these dogs. I was saddened to see the deceased dogs had had their front legs bound with wire. I was thankful to see the rescuers cut the wire off the dog’s legs, so that at least in death they can be free.
