Zambia is an African country with high poverty and food shortages. Rabies is a very real threat in Zambia, as well as other numerous diseases and illnesses which can affect people and animals. Abandoned and homeless dogs and cats strike fear in many local people because of the invisible threat of rabies being transmitted, so consequently dogs and cats can be the target of cruelty., pet centric, Fight Dog Meat, fightdogmeat

Kitwe is the second largest city in Zambia. Kitwe Animal Welfare (KAW), have rescued a number of critically injured stray dogs in Kitwe suffering extensive burns. Burn victim dogs have had boiling water or oil poured over them after they’ve wandered up to people, in search of people.

While Zambia does not have a mainstream dog or cat meat trade, the country has issues surrounding dog and cat meat consumption, especially with the influx of immigrant workers from dog and cat meat eating countries. A couple of years ago Chinese construction company HUA LI, in Zambia, kept dogs specifically to slaughter for dog meat, to feed construction workers.

On the threat of employees losing their construction job, HUA LI bosses demand its Zambian workers kill the dogs, skin them and prepare them for dog meat, according to Chinese methods. If workers refused or even questioned the firm’s demands they were fired and their employment terminated.

The story leaked out after a local Zambian construction worker filmed an undercover video of the appalling conditions which they were being forced to endure, including slaughtering and butchering dogs for their Chinese boss.

Video: not graphic. Video shows the dog’s recovery back to a happy healthy dog ready to be re-homed to a safe and loving home. Thank you to Dr. Geloo.

    People who beat helpless animals are low life shit. They should be beaten and scolded just as they do to other creations of God. Even if a person hunts for food , I find it very inhumane to torture any living creatures.
    When I die , I prey to God my death isn’t by the means of torture. I’ve been tortured enough , but I still thank God for giving me more than I deserve.
