‘Those poor dogs went from one hell to another’: Hundreds of animals that Hollywood crusader vowed to rescue from the dinner table in China were later left to die in sweltering cages
When Hollywood stars including Matt Damon, Joaquin Phoenix and Minnie Driver filmed an emotional appeal to stop China’s brutal dog meat trade, horrified animal lovers from Britain and around the world rallied to the cause.
Volunteers from the UK and the US flew out to help charismatic animal crusader Marc Ching – who orchestrated the celebrity appeal – stage a daring bid to shut down slaughterhouses and rescue 1,000 dogs from the dinner table.
来自英国和美国的志愿者，坐飞机前去帮助编排了名人诉求的动物保护活动家Marc Ching ，呼吁关闭屠宰场，从餐桌上拯救1000条狗。
But a Mail on Sunday investigation has found that – unknown to his Hollywood backers and donors – Ching’s high-profile operation deteriorated into farce, and ended with hundreds of dogs suffering slow and excruciatingly painful deaths within days of being rescued.

I don’t have an issue with poor people eating dog meat, its the cruel methods used to inflict maximum pain and suffering instead of humane methods to end their lives I object too

WTF?!!!!!!!!!!!! Absolutely sickening – whoever causes unnecessary pain to these beautiful dogs deserves a painful death. Shame on anyone who didn’t protect these dogs when they had chance. Disgusting

There are hundreds of thousands of unwanted/homeless dogs in the west already. Which idiot thought bringing another thousand was a good idea. If the ones already here can’t be rehomed why would these? Oh I know-so the new owners could boast about the Holltwood connection!

Just leave those dogs alone. Stray dogs are better than caged ones.

Is it any worse than eating horses? Transported thousands of miles crammed into rail cars with no water or food. There is something revolting about eating another carnivore.
