Cycling meat dealer releases nine dogs from the cage after Good Samaritan pays $ 350 in Cambodia
Nine dogs are rescued from the Cambodian Deliver rover: meat trader driving around with dogs and cooking pots on his bike releases animals after Good Samaritan pays $ 350 for them
- Sam Phannarith saw the dogs in the Siem Reap province last Wednesday
- The trader even had pots for cooking the dogs that hung on the side of the cage
- Mr. Phannarith paid the man before he opened the cage and they ran away
This is the heart-warming moment when a dog lover pays $ 350 (£ 281) to free nine dogs destined for the dining table.
Sam Phannarith drove last Wednesday when he saw the dogs cramming into a rusty cage on the back of a motorcycle in Siem Reap province, Cambodia.
The video shows Mr. Phannarith approaching the man as he gets off his bike before handing him the money and the seller opens the cage to let the dogs escape.
Dogs that are ready to be sold, butchered and eaten, are crammed into a cage on the back of the engine of a meat trader in Siem Reap province, Cambodia. But they are saved by a kind-hearted man who hands over $ 350 to the trader
The meat trader was set up to sell the dogs in nearby villages.
They were allegedly slaughtered and eaten by hungry residents.
The trader had even stacked metal pots on his bike to cook them.
Mr. Phannarith negotiated a $ 350 dollar price – the country uses the US currency alongside his less desirable Riel – and the trader agreed to release it.
After the cage is opened, the video shows that the dogs stay in place briefly before they clumsy clumsily behind each other.
Mr. Phannarith said: “I couldn't stand the idea that the dogs would soon be human food, so I bought them for $ 350 and I'm happy.
& # 39; This was money well spent. It cost around $ 40 to give them their life and freedom.
& # 39; I hope other people will see what I have done and think more about stopping eating dogs in the future.

& # 39; I would do the same again. If I saw more dogs being taken as food, I would pay to release them. & # 39;
Dogs are a popular dish in the rural parts of Northern Thailand, Vietnam, Cambodia, South Korea and some parts of China.
In Vietnam alone, 30 million dogs are killed for human consumption every year.
The locals like to eat the meat and sometimes they believe it can be a cure for diseases.
The demand for dog meat has led to huge breeding farms and often sees pets and stray animals stolen.
In the UK earlier this month, a legal ban on eating dogs was blocked by the Ministry of Justice bureaucrats for fear of insulting cultural sensitivities in the Far East.
Conservative MP Giles Watling was told by the Department of Justice that one of the reasons it acted was the & # 39; culturally insensitive & # 39; would be to tell other nations what they should eat.
