Animal Rights Activists Intercept Truck Carrying 350 Cats

1
A truck load of around 350 cats destined to be taken to a meat processing factory has been intercepted by animal rights activists in the Putuo district of Shanghai on Wednesday. The cats were mostly strays from around Shanghai city but also included stolen pet cats with some of the animals still wearing collars and tags around their necks. The vehicle was reportedly headed to Guangzhou in South China to a ‘fake meat’ factory where the cat meat would have been treated and sold as pork/lamb. However, before it was able to leave activists stopped the truck and rang the police. The driver was detained on the grounds he had no livestock license for transportation.
