Around three million dogs are being stabbed, drowned, clubbed, hanged and sold on for meat every year in Cambodia.
The trade is largely supplied by stolen pets, strays or unwanted dogs sold to passing motorcyclists for aluminium pots and pans.
Captured creatures spend their days in small and rusty iron cages waiting for their gruesome deaths.
Workers at unlicensed slaughterhouses are exposed to deadly health risks like rabies and say they are being traumatised by the day-to-day killings.
Ken Chan, who slices the throats of up to six dogs a day, burst into tears as he described how his job haunts him as he goes to sleep...

Every year, millions of dogs and cats are killed for their meat, making the trade arguably one of the most severe companion animal welfare issues in Asia. Despite continued media attention on the infamous Yulin festival in China, the sad reality is that in cities across Southeast Asia, tens of thousands of cats and dogs are killed in a brutal way each and every day.
Dogs and cats are stolen from their owners and snatched from the streets in Indonesia, Cambodia and Vietnam. These animals are transported long distances, often lasting days, and are killed using gruesome methods such as drowning, blow- torching, electrocution, and beating. While incredibly cruel for the animals, the trade also serves as a significant public health threat, most notably in the form of rabies.
FOUR PAWS is committed to bringing an end to the cruel dog and cat meat trade in Southeast Asia through government collaboration, supporting local stray animal care programs, rescues, and bringing awareness to the trade.
Dog Meat Trade
The dog meat trade is one of the most serious animal welfare issues in Asia. Soi Dog Foundation is working in several countries to end this inhumane and barbaric practice.
The availability of dog meat is widespread in Asia, where the welfare concern is enormous due to the large numbers of dogs being stolen from owners, taken from the streets or sourced from farms, transported long distances and inhumanely slaughtered.
The conditions under which dogs are farmed, transported, and slaughtered are inhumane and barbaric. The dogs are not humanely killed, many are tortured for hours before being skinned alive. The reason for this is that people believe that the pain inflicted leads to the tenderising of the meat. Most shocking of all, is that some dogs are still alive when their fur is removed.
Is this a graffiti?Moving slowly, like a Death Train. Actually, if this had been formally commissioned, it would have been pretty cool. The station and subway line are actually near me. But no, this is remarkable for the utter disrespect of public property. Each new car costs around 2 million USD.
Yeah, that's fugly.Moving slowly, like a Death Train. Actually, if this had been formally commissioned, it would have been pretty cool. The station and subway line are actually near me. But no, this is remarkable for the utter disrespect of public property. Each new car costs around 2 million USD.
YES, show-Zi. Somehow the "artists" marched down the dark tracks undiscovered to where the trains were housed underground, avoiding the deadly third rail and somehow managed to cover an entire train (at least 8 cars' worth) with this . It will cost taxpayers thousands and thousands and thousands to clean the heavy damage.Is this a graffiti?
