Vietnam: Hanoi Wet Market

By Michele Brown | October 06, 2020

None of the animals have water. They’re forced to stand in the hot Vietnamese sun all day, looking perky so the vendor can make a sale. Baby kittens and puppies cry in despair for their mothers and for milk, as they overheat in the sun while packed on top of each other. Baby ducklings are thrown around in the handfuls. Geese, ducks and chickens stand on guard, overheated and exhausted. Roosters with their legs bound together, lay on the concrete in the hot sun.

Filming is not allowed in this northern wet market located out of Hanoi. A brave Vietnamese animal lover secretly videoed what she saw as she strolled along among market goers. The market only operates on certain lunar calendar days of each month. Its a location for pet owners to search for lost pets, in the hope their lost pet is being ransomed for cash after being stolen.

Video: not graphic. Footage showing the wet market near Hanoi.


Wet markets have been heavily documented as places which breed disease and illness. With no vaccinations, injured, dying and distressed animals of various species are crammed in among each other, allowing cross contamination to run rife!

Fight Dog Meat will continue to bring you reports from dog and cat meat countries and the wonderful work their rescuers are doing despite no animal protection laws. Turning away or sitting quietly does not end the trade. We’ll keep exposing what is taking place to these animals. We’re helping local volunteers have a louder voice on a world platform. Ultimately it’s the voice of the country’s own people whom their government will eventually be forced to listen to, for positive change for animals.

Thank you for reading,
