Chinese activists rescue dogs destined for dinner table

In Beijing a man spotted a big lorry full of dogs on a highway outside Beijing.

This man, Mr. An, saved the lives of 580 innocent dogs, that where on the way to be slaughtered and eventually to be served on a plate for dinner.

Mr. An after spotting these dogs intercepted the big lorry by swerving his car in front of it and forcing it to slow down and stop.

After forcing the lorry to stop he contacted a friend of his and explained the situation in wich his friend published a plea on Sina Weibo, a Twitter-like social media platform popular in China, and soon more than 100 animal rights activists had gathered with water, medicine and food for the dogs, who the truck driver later admitted were headed for restaurants in Changchun.
Most of the dogs are now at the China Small Animal Protection Association

"It’s cruel to eat dogs?"
The animal rescue has sparked a debate in China.
