  • Curious: Thousands of dead pets in shipping boxes.
  • They were pets bought online, but they ran out of food and water for a week.
  • There were a total of 5,000 dogs, cats and rabbits.

Terrible, 5,000 pets that were bought online never made it into their homes due to appalling negligence at a courier facility in China.

Thousands of dead cats, dogs and other domestic pets were found in shipping crates at a logistics facility in central China after they ran out of food and water for about a week, he posted. CBS News.

“It was like living hell,” said Sister Hua (pseudonym), founder of the Utopia animal rescue group. “The station was packed with express boxes with thousands of animals that had already died, and the whole place reeked of decomposing bodies.”

It is that the scene was atrocious. There were 5,000 cats, dogs, guinea pigs and rabbits found dead at the Dongxing Logistics facility in Henan’s Luohe city after going without food for about a week, the outlet reported.

Only 200 rabbits and 50 dogs and cats made it out alive with the help of Hua and 20 fellow volunteers, CBS said.

The images taken on the spot are downright disturbing and will break the hearts of animal lovers and anyone with a modicum of heart.

They show dead rabbits, kittens and puppies on a black sheet.

All would have died “suffocation, dehydration and starvation” after being left in plastic or metal cages wrapped in cardboard boxes with perforated breathing holes, which obviously were not enough.

Hua said the tragedy is the result of communication problems related to the live animal supply chain in China.

“The lack of communication within the shipping company and the inconsistency of the implementation of transport regulations led directly to the tragedy,” said the Utopia activist. “Of course, both buyers and sellers also have a responsibility.”

It so happens that pets were probably bought online to receive them at home due to the coronavirus pandemic, but the shipment of live animals in normal packaging is prohibited in China, Hua explained.

He said Dongxing Logistics may have refused to sign a shipment that violates transportation laws, which is fine, but the result, by stranding the animals at the facility, was horrendous and cruel.

The company that shipped the pets, Yunda, told the state-run Global Times newspaper that it was not aware of the incident, but staff confirmed that they allowed the live animals to be shipped in boxes with holes.

Many of the rescued animals that were still healthy were adopted from the scene. While seriously ill pets were taken to vets, the outlet said.

Local officials have arranged for the dead animals to be collected, disinfected and buried while they launch an investigation into how the tragedy occurred.

Hua said that the atrocity of the 5,000 innocent dead is not only a horrible act against defenseless animals, but also poses a danger to public health, especially amid the coronavirus pandemic, which apparently originated from bats. in a wet market in Wuhan.

But that was not all…

After the rescue in Luohe, Hua and his organization learned of another group of animals transported to the city of Dameng.

After 13 hours of new rescues, the organization was able to save around 1,000 more pets, mostly bunnies. The saddest thing is that the survivors were only half of the group, the rest … died.

“Given the COVID-19 pandemic that we are facing, it is so scary that these live animals are transported that way, and even end up dead,” Hua told CBS.

And add a patition that awakens awareness in people. “Opt for adoption over the illegal purchase and shipment of animals,” he begs. She, for her part, will insist ad nauseam that the Chinese authorities strictly abide by the rules on shipping live animals.
