Chinese police rescued 386 dogs this Monday (21), which would be taken to a dog meat festival, being euthanized. The event would take place from Tuesday, in the city of Yulin, in the south of the country.

In precarious conditions, the animals were inside a truck in wire cages. Based on complaints from animal rights activists, the police were able to intercept the vehicle.

The Yulin Dog Meat Festival takes place every year and attracts thousands of people. And annually activists try to end the event.
