Thai & Chinese dogs rescued

NAKON PHANOM,  CHONQING-Nearly 3,000 dogs were impounded from meat traffickers in Thailand and China during mid-January 2012, straining quarantine centers.  The Thai navy seized 750-800 dogs from a boat on the Mekong River on January 13,  plus 500 dogs who were found on a truck that was driving to meet the boat.  About 500 more dogs were found hidden in nearby woods,    to be sent to China via Laos.  About 2,000 dogs were believed to have already been transported.  Not known is whether some of those dogs were among about 1,100 who were intercepted a few days later by the Chongqing Small Animal Protection Association,  of Chongquing in southwest China.  The dogs were being taken to Guangdong.
