Many people are aware of the reality that dogs live in some places in Asia. These animals are consumed as human food in the countries of this continent, to the point of having markets for their commercialization.
Some people try to do everything possible to curb animal consumption in certain countries, such as Cambodia. Sam Phannarith is one of those fighters. The man lives in the city of Siem Reap.
Like “canned sardines”, 9 dogs traveled in a small cage, heading for the worst destination.
One day he was driving when a scene caught his eye. A motorcyclist carried a very unique load: a cage full of dogs and a few pans hanging on the sides.
Sam immediately sensed what was happening, so he wasn’t about to sit idly. He gently stopped the bike and prepared to inspect the dogs that moved closer.
The man did not hesitate to accept the $ 350 offered for the dogs’ release.
In total there were 9 dogs in the cage, which also traveled completely overcrowded. Sam knew immediately that he was negotiating with a dog meat salesman.
In fact, looking at the pans, he figured the rider wouldn’t hesitate to prepare any of these animals for himself or sell the stew.
In this video, Sam has documented how he helped these 9 dogs save their lives at the last moment.
Sam negotiated with the meat seller to release the 9 dogs. However, the subject would not be willing to let the dogs escape without receiving anything in return, so his savior paid $ 350 in exchange for opening the cage.
In Cambodia, $ 350 is a considerable number; therefore, the rider was not required to beg.
He opened the cage when he received the money, and within moments the puppies began to leave the confinement one by one.
Some of them had difficulty entering. Of course, they knew how long ago they were locked in truly inhuman conditions. Some did not hesitate to leave immediately, others were afraid of being punished, but before the freedom alternative, they chose to flee.
The incredible video of the release of these pets has gone viral on social networks, not only for 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 difficulty getting up, but one by one they left the confinement.
Many people on social networks agree that this man’s initiative must be accompanied by laws that sanction dog consumption in these countries.
As this tradition has become more visible in the world, countless institutions are willing to do everything possible to save the lives of these animals.
These poor puppies literally ran away to save their lives.
