A four-month-long Animals Australia investigation released by ABC’s 7.30 in June revealed Bali’s unique heritage dogs being captured and slaughtered in horrific ways for sale as meat. The investigation also revealed that tourists were being duped into eating dog meat on popular Bali beaches.
Just days ago, we presented our shocking evidence of cruelty in the Bali dog meat trade to a packed Forum of Bali government officials, health authorities, tourism bodies and community leaders.
Organised by the Udayana University One Health Collaborative Centre in Bali, and sponsored by Animals Australia, it was a crucial moment for animals. And by the end of the day, attendees were united that the dog meat trade must end.
