Three Tons of Cats and Dogs Culled

This is a short note to remind us how bad the human can become in its relations with domestic cats and dogs. This is a complete abdication of responsibility towards domestic cats and dogs. It is a total perversion of the relationship between cat/dog and humans. It was never meant to be like this. I wonder whether cats and dogs should ever have been domesticated when you read how horrendous the relationship has become in parts of the world.

The debasing of the lives of domestic cats and dogs has reached a nadir in Vietnam where they describe cats being shipped on a lorry by gross weight.

One of the Vietnamese online news sites states:

“A year ago, a huge smuggling case shocked the nation as well as international media as police in Hanoi stopped a truck carrying three tons of cats, all alive, from China. The cats….were all culled later as undocumented goods.”

They might just as well be writing about nuts and bolts except you can’t cull those. “Culling” no doubt means killing in some sort of brutal, mass manner. I dread to think what it was.

Recently a ton of dead cats and dogs was seized from a bus as they were being taken to restaurants in the north of Vietnam.

They dead cats and dogs – all skinned – were in ten boxes (see photo on this page). They were not refrigerated and so they smelled bad. It is so grizzly and disgusting as to be unbelievable for people in the West but day-to-day business for the Vietnamese.

The press says that the nation was shocked but I don’t believe this. There are animal rights activists in China and Vietnam but as a whole the country does not give a damn.

After China, Vietnam is the second biggest dog and cat meat market in the world. It is estimated that five million dogs are slaughtered annually in Vietnam for restaurants.

Cat meat is considered a delicacy in Thai Binh and Nam Dinh Province where it is served up at ceremonies and festivals. Dog meat is eaten anytime, anywhere.

Damn them, I say. May these cat and dog eaters and traders suffer eternal damnation on their passing.

  1. Michael,I concur with your closing statement. Trust me, God has a special place for the anipal and child abusers(whatever the abuse may be — such as in this case) — HELL. . . and there they will all rot!!!! This just burns my a**!!!!! Sick, sick, sick people.

    • The very same can be said for all the people of the UK or the USA that eat beef. All the people of India wish you to, and believe you will, burn in hell for butchering their sacred animals. The same can be said for everyone who feeds their cats that contain any animal products. They too deserve to, and will, writhe in hell.

      • I disagree with you for so many reasons. Your argument is simplistic and lacks knowledge. For a start Indians do eat beef from their own animals. They slaughter them illegally. Look it up. Secondly, cats are not livestock. Beef is from controlled, regulated livestock in the West. The killing is completely different. Cats are brutally killed and skinned etc for fur. It is total hell. I could go on for hours but am too tired to bother but one thing: animal products do contain by-products from animals processed for human consumption but sometimes it can be cats killed at shelters. That is terrible. But if we are to accept the domestic cat they have to fed meat. Are u suggesting we dispense with all domestic cats?

        • TaserTask, please don’t ever own a cat and NEVER suggest to any cat owner that their cat not be fed meat. Cats are obligate carnivores as are salmon, dolphins, mink, eagles, hawks, and most amphibians…to name a few. They MUST eat meat to survive!! It is a biological necessity!

          • Thank you Kit. TaskerTask is a troll and he has been banned. He always writes negative things to wind people up and anyway he hates cats.

              • Yes, I do believe he’s a birder – an ornithologist. If not an ornithologist, somebody for some reason who hates or strongly dislikes cats and finds all kinds of reasons why they should not exist. This sort of person likes to kill cats. And they always write about the cat in strongly negative terms indicating a huge bias against cats without supporting evidence of any kind.
