Pictures of dogs being taken in a cage in Vietnam has gone viral. These pet dogs are carried in cages to nearby restaurants and sold to be boiled alive. These pictures were taken by an activist in order to circulate in social media to raise the necessary awareness about this heinous act. 
While these pictures were making around the internet, an unseen clip from Hanoi meat market also went viral. Of late a number of animal rights activists have opposed the dog eating.

Earlier,  the CEO of the Fight Dog Meat charity, Michele Brown said: “In Vietnam, it’s believed eating tough meat makes a tough man.”

He even said that many in Vietnam believe that having dog meat can boost a man
“Many think dog meat boost’s a man’s libido and also cure them of illness. However, this hasn't been proven till now."

Dog's aren't alone who have faced such a cruelty, earlier there were pictures of the
honey-coloured cats which made around in social media.

In the pictures, the cats were seen in a cage like the dogs and were taken to a market in southern China where they are killed and eaten.

According to a few activists, in China people have cat meat because they believe that the cats taste exotic.

According to the reports, an estimated five million dogs are being eaten annually. It might sound strange but the number of dog meat eaten annually are on the rise in Vietnam and pet ownership has also grown over the years.
