Illegal dog meat trade: PETA denounces in a new video
New video from PETA India reveals illegal dog meat trade
Guwahati, Assam, India – Although it is illegal to kill dogs for meat in India, a new video from PETA India Tour of the markets of wild animals sold for consumption in northeast India reveals a significant trade in dog meat. Puppies bark, locked in cramped cages, while adult dogs whose mouths have been tied up try to escape the burlap bags that hinder them. Once the dogs have been bought, the sellers empty them of their organs and char their bodies with a blowtorch.
Other animals were sold in these markets, including live eels, mice, frogs and birds. There was blood and entrails everywhere, and buyers and sellers routinely handled dead animals without wearing gloves, conditions conducive to disease transmission. Experts overwhelmingly believe that COVID-19 originated or spread from a live animal market, and SARS, swine flu and bird flu have also been linked to the containment and culling of animals. animals for food.
“Whether they sell dogs in Dimapur or birds in Brooklyn, unsanitary live animal markets are unnamed places of suffering and breeding grounds for pandemics,” said Mimi Bekhechi, Vice President of International Programs at PETA. “PETA calls World Health Organization to shut down these cruel and dangerous markets all over the world and calls on all people upset by these images to switch to a vegan diet. “
PETA India has filed a complaint and alerted local authorities about the live animal markets, which also appear to violate wildlife and animal protection laws.
PETA, whose motto says in particular that “Animals do not belong to us and [que] we don’t have to use them for our food ”, is opposed to speciesism, an ideology which postulates a false superiority of humans over other animals.
