End Barbaric Cat Meat Markets and “Death Cages”

Target: Trần Đại Quang, President of Vietnam

Goal: Crack down on meat markets where cats are slaughtered for human consumption across Vietnam.

Helpless cats are being squeezed into so-called “death cages” where they are drowned and skinned for their meat, which is considered a delicacy all across Vietnam. The fact that eating cat meat is illegal in this southeast Asian country has done little to discourage middle class diners who enjoy ordering this exotic and expensive dish, often referred to as “little tiger.” Demand justice for these helpless cats and tell the Vietnamese government to crack down on this barbaric trade.

Recent video footage and pictures from activist group Fight Dog Meat reveal the full scope and horror of the cat meat trade in Vietnam. The cats, mainly young kittens, are shown stuffed into bags before being forced into wire cages and drowned in vats of water. Finally, the cats are skinned and boiled before being prepared into a variety of dishes. Disturbingly, many of the cats shown appear to be wearing collars, suggesting that they may have been kidnapped pets.

It is outrageous that this abusive behavior is continuing to go unpunished in Vietnam. Stop this horrific example of animal cruelty by signing the petition below.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear President Quang,

The slaughter of cats for human consumption is taking place all across Vietnam despite your country’s ban on this abhorrent practice. Footage recently taken in Ho Chi Minh City shows hundreds of cats packed into bags before being drowned alive. Many of these cats appear to be wearing collars, suggesting they were kidnapped pets.

This illegal and abominable behavior must be brought to an end. Cats do not deserve to die to sate the appetites of the middle class. We, the undersigned, demand that you bring this trade to an end by cracking down on all cat meat smugglers and food sellers participating in this vile act.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]
