Animal Equality’s investigators have infiltrated the Chinese dog and cat fur industry across several regions of the country. They uncovered the cruelty behind the killing of dogs and cats for their fur in the fourth investigation Animal Equality has carried out into the Chinese dog and cat fur and meat industry.
Despite the fact that the security guards followed us and tried to stop us from seeing the unloading of live animals at the markets, we witnessed how thousands of animals arrived in huge trucks, crammed into tiny cages.
Dogs raised for the meat markets are often taken from the street or stolen from families. These animals are kept almost their entire lives confined in wire cages where they suffer terribly both physically and psychologically. Whilst in the cramped cages, they are scared. They suffer from hunger, extreme temperatures, and a lack of food and water.
