Yummy....Dog Meat and Cat Meat!

100 Cats Per Day Butchered and Sold as Rabbit Meat in China.

Goal: Imprison man reportedly caught torturing and slaughtering cat’s, then selling them as rabbit meat.

Cats were reportedly frozen, decapitated, and drowned before being skinned and sold as rabbit meat. Forty-nine live cats and around one ton of feline carcasses were found in a warehouse where they were being tortured, according to reports.

Authorities say they caught the slaughterhouse owner, Huang Fuping, in the middle of killing cats when they raided the warehouse. According to a report, the cages housing the poor cats were only 7.8 inches tall. Fuping reportedly collected strays, telling people he rescued them and kept them in an air-conditioned home.

Since China doesn’t have any laws against animal torture, this monster could walk away with nothing more than a measly fine. That’s why it’s imperative that we put the pressure on the authorities to do the right thing. Please sign this petition demanding that this man be punished severely, if found guilty.

Stop Clubbing Dogs to Death at Meat Markets in India.
Target: TR Zeliang, Chief Minister of Nagaland, India

Goal: Shut down illegal dog meat markets in Nagaland, India.

Thousands of dogs are brutally killed each year at illegal meat markets in Nagaland, India. Every year, approximately 30,000 dogs are rounded up, muzzled, and bundled into sacks. This includes both stray dogs and pet dogs that are stolen from their homes. These captive dogs are taken to local markets, where they’re kept in the sacks. While they’re waiting to be butchered, they’re forced to sit alongside the remains of dogs that came before them. Buyers will often choose the dog they want to eat, and will then watch the dog get clubbed to death.

These dog meat markets are completely illegal under Indian law. Eating dog meat was made illegal in India under the Food Safety and Standards Regulation of 2011. Also, the cruel transportation and treatment of dogs was banned under the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Act, 1960. Nagaland’s dog meat markets blatantly disregard both of these laws. But local authorities are failing to upload the laws, allowing the dog meat markets to thrive.

These horrific and completely illegal dog meat markets need to be shut down, and the inhumane traders must be punished for their actions. Sign our petition and tell the state of Nagaland’s government that they must shut down these cruel and illegal dog meat markets

Seized, slaughtered, skinned—we must put an end to this cruelty. 100 dogs bludgeoned and skinned--PER DAY.

One by one, frightened dogs are grabbed by metal pincers and bashed over the head. Some are knocked unconscious. The rest wail and writhe and bleed until they die.

One by one as many as 100 to 200 dogs in a single slaughterhouse, in a single day will suffer this way. And nobody knows just how many of these hideous facilities are spread across China.

A PETA Asia investigation exposed this outrageous cruelty—but it won't end without you. Make your special year-end contribution to power PETA's work for animals NOW.

No animal should suffer like this—but the public can't push back against abuse that they don't even know about. The first step to ending the cruelty is to expose the suffering. PETA and our affiliates are leading the charge—visiting facilities where animals are harmed, collecting evidence, and publishing the shocking images and videos.

This kind of work isn't easy, and it doesn't come cheap. But it's essential to saving animals. Support PETA's groundbreaking work and help us protect more animals with a special gift today.

Of course, exposing the cruelty is not enough. PETA is working with leaders to end importations of dog leather, encouraging major retailers to stop selling leather and fur, and asking our supporters to spread the word about the intense suffering of animals killed for their skin, fur, and feathers.

Support this and other critical work for animals by making a gift to PETA right now.

We're making progress: Prompted by PETA Asia's investigation, several members of Congress have called on U.S. Customs and Border Protection to ensure that dog leather does not enter the U.S. Online retail giant also agreed to a permanent ban on leather gloves and all products made with fur.

The crisis facing dogs, cows, and other animals is huge: Most of the world's leather comes from China, where there are no penalties for abusing animals killed for their skins.

It's up to us to make a difference—one by one, until no animal is forced to endure this suffering.
