Tied and bound, a puppy watches as other animals are beheaded in front of it in horrific footage of Indonesia’s dog meat trade… which is feared to be spreading RABIES to humans
These horrifying images show the cruel truth of the dog meat trade in Indonesia, where around one million pets are slaughtered for food each year.
Footage shows how pet dogs are snatched from homes, tied up, stuffed in plastic sacks and shoved into tiny cages.
They are then transported to slaughter houses where they are brutally killed and beheaded in front of each other.
While only a minority of Indonesians eat dog meat, there has been an increase in popularity, which in addition to outrage over animal cruelty, has authorities worried about the spreading of rabies.
