Many people are aware of the reality that dogs live in some parts of Asia . These animals are consumed as human food in the countries of this continent, to the point that there are markets for their commercialization.
Some people have tried to go to great lengths to curb the consumption of animals in certain countries , such as Cambodia. Sam Phannarith is one of those fighters. The subject lives in the city of Siem Reap.
Like “sardines in a can” that’s how 9 dogs traveled in this small cage, heading to the worst of destinations
One day he was driving when a scene caught his attention. A motorcyclist was carrying a very unusual load: a cage full of dogs and some saucepans hanging on the sides.
Sam immediately sensed what was happening, so he wasn’t about to sit idly by. Gently he stopped the motorcyclist and began to inspect more closely the dogs he was transporting .
The man did not hesitate to accept the $350 they offered him for the release of the puppies.
In total there were 9 dogs inside the cage, which also traveled completely overcrowded . Sam knew right away that he was ᴅᴇᴀʟιɴԍ with a dog meat vendor.
In fact, seeing the pots, he imagined that the motorcyclist would not hesitate to prepare one of those animals for himself or to sell it cooked.
In this video Sam documented how he helped these 9 dogs save their lives at the last moment
Sam negotiated with the meat vendor to release all 9 dogs . However, the subject would not be willing to let the dogs escape without receiving anything in return, so his rescuer paid him $350 in exchange for opening the cage.
In Cambodia, 350 dollars is a considerable figure, so the motorcyclist did not play hard. He opened the cage upon receiving the money and in just moments the puppies began to come out of their confinement one by one.
Some of them had a real hard time getting up. It is logical, because they had been locked up for who knows how long in truly inhumane conditions . Some did not hesitate to leave immediately, others feared being punished, but faced with the alternative of freedom, they chose to flee.
The surprising video of the release of these pets went viral on social networks , not only because of how cruel the dog meat business can be in certain regions of Asia, but also because of Sam’s noble gesture.
Many of them had a hard time getting up, but one by one they came out of their confinement
Many people on social networks agree that this man’s initiative should be accompanied by laws that penalize the consumption of dogs in these countries .
As this tradition has become more visible in the world, numerous institutions are willing to do everything possible to save the lives of these animals .
These poor puppies literally ran for their lives
