YULIN DOG MEAT FESTIVAL - RESCUE JUNE 19TH 2017
On June 19th 2017, a dog meat truck heading to Yulin Guangxi in prepration for the "festival" was intercepted by Chinese activists. The truck was carring over 1000 dogs. The activists called upon the authorities to seize the dogs as the driver did not have the requisite quarantine and vaccination certificates to transport dogs accross provincial borders.
Out of the 1000 dogs rescued , only 619 survived.
Suki Su's dogs featured below, were rescued off this infamous truck interception, the largest rescue in history.
