NOTE: There are some pretty horrible pictures on this page - please do not scroll down unless you are prepared to look at them!


Xi Chang Market.
December 1997

Xichang is known as China's "space city" and is capital city of the Liangshan Yi Nationality Autonomous Prefecture in southwestern Sichuan Province, People's Republic of China.

These are pictures of a market area on an embankment above the river in the old part of town. At the front there are puppies and kittens for sale as pets and further back are about 100 dogs waiting to be selected by customers. When selected the vendor puts the dog in a sack and weighs it. After a price is agreed the purchaser kills his dog and butchers it (sometimes in that order, more often in the reverse order).   Business was brisk with a dog being killed about ever 5 minutes.  There seemed to be two techniques.  The one man technique was to hit the dog twice on the head with a wooden plank which dazed it sufficiently to make it safe for him to plunge his knife into its jugular without getting bitten. He then held the dog up by the tail until it bled into unconsciousness - he would then proceed to butcher it with  the dog coming in and out of consciousness.  With the two man technique, one man held the dog up by her tail while the other pulled the neck back with a wire round the dog's neck.   The first man was then able to reach down, again without fear of being bitten, to sever the jugular vein. Since the dog was in no way stunned, she struggled and howled and urinated until passing out. The watching dogs were also shaking and howling. The dog was flung onto her back and the butchering began - consciousness returned on lying flat but she was too weak then to struggle much. One of the men laid down his knife and put his mouth to the inside of the dog's hind leg - I couldn't see what he was doing.


It has a date of 1997 .. does anyone know whether this is still happening? I hope not.

Frowning,
Lisa

Hi Lisa- I'm very sorry to tell you that these horrible things are still going on. There are some deeply disturbing videos at furisdead.com , Peta.org , and In defense of Animals website. I warn you that they are horrible. I share this with people because more of us must become aware of it so we can fight to stop. Take care- Mike

It's sad that still happens...you know it's great that the country has a deep and rich history, but why dwell in those times? This is the 21st century,not the effin middle ages!
