They were crammed in so tight that there was barely even enough room to breathe!
A motorist in the Ghizhou province in China was horrified when he came upon a truck carrying hundreds of dogs in tiny cages destined for the slaughterhouses.
The motorist quickly snapped pictures, which he posted on China's social media site Weibo. Animal activists instantly reacted to the photos, calling on the police to stop the truck. People rushed to the scene, and truck was pulled off the road at the next toll stop.
As soon as the truck was stopped people started unloading the caged dogs.
The dogs had been crammed into their cages so tightly that they were struggling to breathe. Some of them were already dead.
The dogs had been stuffed more than one inside the tiny cages, with hundreds of cages piled on top of one another.
Despite pressure from the Western world and activists inside the country, dog meat is still consumed on a large scale in China.
The dogs were released from their cages, and many of them were badly injured from being tossed about in the cages on the horrible journey.
Those who needed medical attention quickly received it, and the dogs are finding loving homes to go to.
