500 pooches saved from the dinner table

Tech-savvy citizen rescues 500 dogs from becoming dinner

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.

This is great news, but I'm always curious why we feel so much for certain animals

and don't think about others.

Pet dogs and cats are part of the reason why cows and chickens are raised in

such inhuman conditions. The grade-A rules which apply to the treatment of animals

for human consumption do not apply for cattle beint raised for pet food consumption.

Even organically grown meats are really all that compasionate.

I'm not saying we should't be releaved for the dogs. But there's alot of condeming

of China lately over these issues, when the US is the country that started 'factory

farmer' of other animals.

I can say that the stealing of someone's personal pet to use as somebody else's food pushed the envelope beyond my understanding. Of course the problem is that most of those dogs will probably end up euthanized because there is nowhere else for them, especially if they are being breed as food.

your point is a good one.

If someone was stealing peoples pot belly pet pigs and loading them up for slaughter in America there would be a big outcry despite how much pork we eat in this nation.

I'm a vegetarian who grew up in the wholesale meat business (mostly cattle) and I agree with you 100%. I've raised this same points in other threads in the past.

I don't mean this disparagingly, but most people just don't get it. They truly can't see how it's exactly the same. A dog is cute, a cow isn't - so in their mind it's different.

But then all that a lot of people care about is that their meat "magically" shows up in the store, neatly packaged, ready to cook. They really have no idea how much bullshit is involved with the raising, slaughtering, butchering and delivery of enough animals to make that happen, regardless of species.

i aviod meat for the same reasons; maybe one day meat can be cloned in tanks and animals spared this suffering.
