89 dogs rescued from Shenzhen 'dog slaughterhouse'

Eighty-nine dogs have been relocated to shelters after being scooped from the jaws of a dog slaughterhouse in Shenzhen.

The rescue was the result of dedicated Shenzhen dog-lovers who staged a 36-hour sit-in to secure the dogs release, according to Compassion for China’s Animals.

The incident occurred in Gongming, Guangming New Area, where local law enforcement removed the 89 living dogs and were responsible for the destruction of farmed dog carcasses.

At this point it is unclear how many dog carcasses were seized and destroyed.

If there were ever any doubts that this shady establishment was a slaughterhouse, let it be laid to rest with the knowledge that the ‘dog-den’ had no health permit and all the dogs had no tags.

Also, there were dead dogs and caged dogs. It doesn't take NASA's finest to get to the bottom of this one.

No word yet on whether any arrests have been made.
