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.
