In Indonesia, more than a million pets are being butchered, pummeled and blowtorched, while being alive for food. Awful scenes of such have caught the attention of more than 90 stars of screen, music, and sport, including Cameron Diaz, Ricky Gervais, and Ellen DeGeneres, and made them campaign against the forthcoming, notorious Yulin Dog Meat Festival.
However, while with this ongoing crisis in the Chinese city of Yulin, an even more offensive scene is being encountered in the street markets of North Sulawesi.
The president of Indonesia has been called upon by writing from a galaxy of celebs, asking him to put a stop to the cruelty after some gut-wrenching footage of cats and dogs being tortured surfaced.
British stars like Simon Cowell, Alfie Boe, Peter Egan, Brian May, Dame Judi Dench, Ricky Gervais, and Paul O’Grady were among those who signed the letter.
America’s famous like Ellen DeGeneres Joaquin Phoenix, David Duchovny, Cameron Diaz, Courtney Cox, and Owen Wilson weren’t left out, and also nearby footballers Dwight Yorke and Gianfranco Zola, and additionally Indonesian big names.
The superb list is supporting Dog Meat-Free Indonesia’s campaign. After an investigation of the happenings to the country’s cats and dogs occurred, this coalition of animal welfare became outraged.
The content of the letter from the celebrities to the president of Indonesia, Joko Widodo, highlights the horror of the nationwide investigation findings by the Dog Meat-Free Indonesia coalition; documents the horrific reality that more than one million dogs and cats are transported throughout Indonesia to supply markets, slaughterhouses and restaurants; stated that these animals, many being stolen pets, are subjected to crude and pitiless methods of capture, transport, and slaughter, and the immense pain and fear they must endure is heartbreaking and utterly shocking, and also noted that the footage from markets in North Sulawesi is disgraceful and clearly showcases the routine use of brutal handling and killing, including repeatedly bashing animals over the head, killing them in front of their terrified cage-mates, and blowtorching dogs still alive.
