SHOCKING PICTURES: Vietnam dog meat restaurants trade exposed

Dog meat trader in Vietnam today over the theft and slaughter of family pets for food – then watched in horror as he had two terrified dogs butchered in front and thrown alive into a vat of boiling water. The bloody show of defiance took place beside a row of dog meat restaurants just two miles from the centre of the capital Hanoi as Mail Online investigated the country’s brutal and lucrative trade in dogs for food. More than 500,000 people have backed a campaign fronted by Ricky Gervais and Judi Dench to halt the trade in dogs in neighbouring Thailand which leads to pets being snatched off the streets to be slaughtered and served up in dog meat restaurants in Vietnam.
