Join with Animals Australia to help end Bali’s dog meat trade
Every day, dogs are captured off the streets of Bali to supply a booming dog meat trade. A shocking Animals Australia investigation has documented Bali’s elusive dog meat trade, fuelled in part by international tourists. The dogs are dumped in bamboo crates or plastic rice sacks, awaiting the nightly slaughter with legs tied and mouths taped shut. They may languish like this for hours or days without food or water. One by one they will be brutally slaughtered in full view of their companions. Tourists are duped into thinking they aren’t eating dog meat – Animals Australia’s investigations found that a dog meat vendor didn’t hesitate to lie to Aussie tourists to make money from them. If you choose to eat meat in Bali, you may end up eating dog meat.
Animals Australia’s efforts
Animals Australia’s investigations found that just a few blocks away from the bustling tourist strips, there was a dark side to this ‘Island Paradise’ — dogs were being poisoned, beaten and strangled for their meat. This violent trade in dog meat is allowed by Bali’s government despite horrific animal cruelty and the serious health risks posed to local people and unsuspecting tourists.
Animals Australia have taken their investigations to the highest levels of government in Bali and every possible influencer in between — from community leaders to religious leaders to health professionals and businesses. All agree that Bali’s dog meat trade is breaching both animal cruelty and food safety laws. They have offered their assistance to the Bali government to close the dog meat trade and to partner with them to protect all animals on the island from extreme cruelty.
Now, international pressure is urgently needed to support our efforts to bring about positive change for all animals in need in Bali.
