Daily Mail reports a story about terrified dogs wait to be bludgeoned, blow-torched and dismembered at ‘hellish’ Indonesian dog-meat market
Terrified dogs wait in wire cages to be beaten to death as cats are blow-torched while they are still alive – this is the horrifying reality of Indonesia‘s live meat trade.
There are more than 200 ‘live’ meat markets in the south Asian country, and Downton Abbey actor Peter Egan
These deeply disturbing scenes were filmed at Tomohon’s ‘Extreme Market’ and Langowan Traditional Market, both located in North Sulawesi province.
Videos from the two markets, visited by Daily Mail journalist alongside the Dog Free Meat Indonesia campaign group, show animals forced into cages in hot weather, awaiting their fate.
Animals were filmed being clubbed to death in full view of the cage-mates, making the experience as terrifying as possible.
After being beaten over the head with large pieces of wood the animals are taken to be blowtorched so the hair can be stripped away.
However, many of the pitiable creatures are still moving or twitching as the flames are applied to their bodies.
