Dog Meat for Sale

in Environmental Threats

Up to 30,000 dogs are smuggled from Thailand across the border and eventually  end up for sale on the black market in Vietnam.

Butchers who work with the meat offer dog meat for sale to the public for $26 to $32 (800 to 1,000 Thai Baht.)

The dogs that are targeted by smugglers are not strays, but healthier dogs that are kept as pets.
