Russian volunteers, with the help of local police, stopped illegal truck carrying 1300 dogs and cats transported in horrific conditions, stuffed 5-10 to a tiny cage, many wounded, bleeding and dying from heat, thirst and hunger. These poor animals were to be killed and eaten at the Yulin dog meat festival. The Russian volunteers had to sneak the saved animals in secret into shelters and animal sanctuaries. These organizations must keep their addresses secret due to attacks by the dog and cat meat traders — a horrific custom still existing in the rural areas of China.
I want to stress that it was an international effort; the Chinese volunteers and Chinese animal shelters were involved.
The good news, many innocent animals have been saved.
Video (sorry, graphic):
I think it’s very inspirational and uplifting to watch such videos as they tend to restore our tarnished faith in humanity and give us hope.
As a cat and animal lover, I almost had a heart attack watching the beginning. Security cams in the western Russian enclave of Kaliningrad recorded a video of a little kitten that somehow fell out of a passing vehicle. Then we see cars and trucks passing at high speed, trying to give kitten a wide enough berth so not to hurt him. It was indeed a miracle he has survived. Finally, one driver stops and takes the kitten into his car.
(Камеры видеонаблюдения запечатлели спасение котенка, оказавшегося на оживленной проезжей части в Калининграде. Выпавшего из автомобиля малыша чудом не зацепили проносящиеся мимо машины и грузовики. Один из водителей в итоге остановился и отнес котенка к себе в салон.)
Here are other videos showing people escorting lost duck families to safety:
I have to say things like stopping on the road to help animals in need, or people in need, are very common in Russia.
I once posted this famous video compilation on Lada Ray Blog. CLICK HERE: Beautiful Russian Compilation of Random Acts of Kindness that Won’t Leave Anyone Untouched
Here is another version of this viral video compilation of random acts of kindness to humans and animals on Russian roads:
There are tons of random moments of kindness caught on camera on Russian roads. I show several such Russian dashcam pics in my video: Quantum Scale of Consciousness: Life-Creating Calibrations (ProjectEarthShift 2). Time stamp: 14:10 – look under Calibration 480-499: HUMANITY & COMPASSION:
