And the guy still makes a profit.... :no:

Quote

Seven hours later the owner of the load arrived but refused to reveal where the cats had come from. After bargaining for three hours, the owner agreed to sell the cats to the animal rescue volunteers for 3500 Yuan (£350).

This actually reminds me of a brief story i heard in the 90's (maybe an urban legend) about a British family (mother, father and little daughter) in Hong Kong for the fathers work.

The girl was getting lonely and the father decided to buy her a pet cat. After a few hours of looking for a pet store, they found a shop with kittens and puppies in a back alley. The father asked the girl which one she wanted and the girl picked one out. The shop teller picked up the kitten and took its head off with a meat cleaver and handed it to the little girl.

Obviously it wasn't a pet shop...

what a catastrophic turn of events for that restaurant - robbing them of business like that.

Personally I see no difference between 300 cats and the 300 rabbits that the truck driver claimed were onboard.

I also find it strange that in a country where millions of cats are skinned alive in fur farms every year, that anyone would be bothered about a truck load on their way to resturants.

they don't actually kill them that way. I saw a documentary many years back i think on HBO and it was about animal cruelty. In one segment they showed a resurant in china that served dogs and cats and they showed them preparing one for a customer. What they did was noose the cat around the neck with a wire on a pole. They then took it into the kitchen and thumped it on the head several times with a wooden mallet. The "cook" then made an incision on both sides of the cats neck. the cat is still in the noose at this point. He then puts it into a deep fat frier for about 5 seconds or so and pulls it out. Apprently this is to help get the skin off because he then took a tool and just peeled the skin of the cat off from the neck down all in one peice. He then un-noosed the cat into a large pool of water in the middle of the kitchen. At that point they stopped showing the process but the cat was still moving in the water. I don't know if it was still alive or if that was reflexes but it was very disturbing to watch and I have never forgotten it.

Actually a man I know from Peru told me that growing up his nieghbor was a chef who specialized in unusual dishes and he served him cat one time.  I asked him what it tasted like and he said rabbit.

This is probably quite true . In parts of Asia ,mostly China and Vietnam ,dogs and cats are in displays of a kind ,where you pick one out and its killed or killed and cooked for you,right there.
It's exactly the same as the lobster tank at the fancy fish restaurant ,Where you pick out your lobster before dinner .

There are now dog and cat rescue groups ,in Korea and China,for just such instances . PETA now has an Asia branch . I actually considered applying for the Japan coordinator job ,as I would be qualified for it ,but for some bizarre reason ,their Japan reps,are stationed in I think Singapore .
I actually have a close friend in s'pore,but I have no desire to live there .

I don't care how "socially acceptable" it is in other countries to eat cats and dogs, here in the U.S it is not and I am glad.
I am also glad things are changing in that people in other countries are at least trying to change things.
