Activists Spend 500,000 RMB Saving Dogs Ready For Slaughter

11 volunteers descended on a slaughterhouse in Yulin, famous for its “Dog Meat Festival”, and rescued 1381 dogs by buying them up at a cost of over 500,000 RMB. Working through the night, the workers spent 30 hours transporting the animals to a protection center in Gaoyou, of which the activists had heard that the 400 dogs accommodated there last year fared well with the help of a local temple and other volunteers. Some netizens believed the activists pretentious, saying the money would have been better spent on the poor and sick.

    when do people start rescuing cows?

    Money better spent on an ad campaign if you really want people to stop eating dogs.

    If you bought 1,000,000 cows it wouldn’t stop me from eating my cheeseburger, but if you had a nasty anti-meat ad campaign you might block me for a night or two providing it was super emotional and sappy enough to inspire my woman to give me shit about my meal.

      Agree. Money spend on educating people is the long term solution to this annual tragic event.

    Stupid, that just means 500,000 RMB additional business for the Dog breeders.
