Update #707 Tianjin dog truck rescue attempt (source Compassion for China’s Animals facebook https://www.facebook.com/CompassionForChinasAnimals?fref=ts).
Police have cordoned off the area and the dogs are at last being unloaded (into an area deemed unsuitable by activists) able to stretch legs and drink – but not safe yet – the traffickers are still refusing to sign dogs over to volunteers – volunteers are still waiting in offices of officials in Tianjin/Beijing desperately trying to save lives. Police officers have forced unloading.
Message from activists on Chinese social media : “#707 rescue three consecutive days of high temperature exposure, hundreds of dogs barking, biting railing, stretched limbs desperately for help, still huddled in death dog dog car, moving the seizure and let the epidemic spread, the Tianjin municipal government phone call stand up. Urge the country’s well-intentioned people, justice, media attention to this matter, are able to come, the guardian of hundreds of fresh life.”
So sad to see families with stolen dogs unable to claim them in this
rescue – the torture just continues in a chain reaction as more people are seeing this unjust and incomprehensible situation unfolds – animal protection laws called for asap please
