Skewer dogs turned into kebabs by street vendors on brutal photos of Vietnam’s meat market

Vigorous photos show that skewers are being sold as kebabs by street vendors in Vietnam while the government is trying to combat the delicacy.

The bodies of small breeds were photographed lying on metal gratings before being served in & # 39; Thit Cho & # 39; restaurants in the capital Hanoi.

Their teeth were still in place, and their dark skin tore when the dogs were piled up alongside roadside sausages.

Josh Edelson, who traveled through Vietnam, told MailOnline that there were three sellers who would film him Saturday after two days of trying.

The photographer from San Francisco, California, said: “The photos are extremely disturbing, but I think it's an important story, especially because the Vietnamese government is at odds with the locals.

& # 39; The first time I tried it, they shot me away. They don't like to take photos, probably because it's a pretty controversial part of their culture – dog food. & # 39;

But he added: & # 39; The locals claim that it is part of their culture and that it should stay. & # 39;

Edelson saw motorists and even soldiers stop at the vendors and snack on the dog meat after it was fried in hot fat.

He added: & # 39; I thought (the soldiers) were there to close it, but was then surprised to see them buy. & # 39;

A few years ago, the dog meat industry flourished and animals were taken from their homes, crammed into metal cages, and forcibly fed to restaurant tables.

In 2014, it was reported that thousands of pets had been stolen from gardens and front porches to feed the guests' appetites.

At one point in the year, seven tons of live dogs were shipped to Hanoi every day.

The pets were sold by weight and some were forced through funnels to increase their value before being rinsed and tightly packed in cages.

Most of the dogs that were eaten in Vietnam were transported from neighboring Thailand, Cambodia and Laos. But in recent years, animal rights groups have managed to close most of these routes, meaning that most dogs are now being shipped from Vietnam

Some diners believe that the more an animal suffers before it dies, the tastier the meat is.

Some dogs died by being clubbed to death with a heavy metal pipe, which can have more than ten strokes.

Others have cut their throats or are stabbed in the chest, while some are even burned alive.

To increase their weight and therefore their selling price, they are filled with rice and water via gastric tube. Others let stones penetrate their mouths.
