The looks on these celebrities’ faces as they learn about the fringe dog-meat industry in Thailand says it all. They’re Ricky Gervais — who’s infamously hard to shock — Dame Judi Dench, and Penelope Wilton, Laura Carmichael, and Peter Egan from "Downton Abbey."Trigger warning: There are verbal descriptions and some depictions of animal cruelty in this video. Thankfully, most of it isn’t shown.
The conditions these dogs endure are just heartbreaking. Even before the worst stuff happens, they're often packed in crates so tightly they can't move.
We can only hope they don't know what awaits them. But looking at the hopeless, pleading looks on their faces, I'm afraid they get the idea.
This unimaginable level of cruelty needs to stop. And it needs to stop now.
So how can you even help?
First and foremost, you can go to the site mentioned in the video. That's what I did.
And of course, please share this with anyone who you think will care so we can shed light on what has been a dark, cruel secret for far, far too long.
