I am so lying in the caption of this post. Nevertheless, it’s precisely what I thought when I saw a story saying that Chinese activists, using a social network, were able to stop a shipment of hundreds of dogs destined for the cook pot:
Dogs destined to be slaughtered and served up in China’s restaurants were saved when the truck transporting them was intercepted by animal rights activists.
The vehicle, carrying 505 canines packed into just 156 tiny cages, was stopped on Yunnan Province’s highway from Fumin to Kunming after other drivers spotted its sickening cargo.
Sadly, many of the dogs were in such terrible shape, they died before their rescue could be fully effected. Thankfully, though, many others were saved, although I do wonder whether they can ever be domesticated.
