Tech-savvy citizen rescues 500 dogs from becoming dinner4/26/2012
Volunteers in China are struggling to nurse some 500 dogs back to health after they were reportedly rescued from landing on the dining room table. A Good Samaritan spotted a truck stacked with cages containing hundreds of dogs, many of which were obviously stolen pets still wearing their collars, leashes and even clothing. The concerned driver posted a note on Weibo (China's answer to Twitter) and, amazingly, hundreds of animal lovers responded and gathered at a toll booth to block the road. The truck was headed for - gulp! -- a food processing plant. An anonymous donor has raised about $10,000 to rescue the dogs, which are now housed in a temporary shelter.
How should Chinese authorities crack down on the dog meat industry?
