Just recently, volunteer worker May shared a story on Facebook saying that a man has eaten the dog he had initially agreed to adopt from her.
In an exclusive interview with WORLD OF BUZZ, May reveals that she used to help out with rehoming dogs at a Shell petrol station but because of the pandemic, she started to walk around with the puppies to see if anyone would like to adopt them.
“One day, I stumbled across Mr. Lee (unsure if the given name is real or fake), he sells soy milk near Taman Connaught and when I approached him, he seemed to be very interested,” May recounted.
“I explained to him about adopting the dogs and he said he loves dogs. I asked if he stays at a landed property and he told me yes. He even told me to not worry as the dog will be well taken care of,” she said.
She then passed the dog to him and left. Yesterday (August 5), she stumbled across Mr Lee and asked about the dog’s condition.
“I asked him and he just laughed and said no more. I kept asking, and he eventually said that he eats dog meat,” she said.
She then took her phone out and pretended that she was listening, and proceeded to record him.
In the video she asked:
“What happened to the dog? And he said that he gave the dog to his uncle and they slaughtered it and made stew. He said that they enjoyed the meal.”
“I asked him why didn’t he give the dog back to me if he didn’t want it and he said: “You gave me the dog, what I want to do with the dog is my business.””
“He said that he is from Guang Xi, China and they’re okay with eating dog meat,” she explained.
In the interview, May told WORLD OF BUZZ that she didn’t expect this to happen.
She said: “It’s my mistake that I forgot to ask him for his number, I would usually ask adopters for their numbers so they could update us on the condition of the dog.”
“They can also return the dog to me if they find that they’re unable to care for the dog, I just didn’t expect that this man will cook and eat the dog.”
When asked about what actions she had taken since the incident, May has said that after she recorded the video, she saw a policeman nearby and went to ask for some advice.
Unfortunately, the authorities couldn’t do much as there wasn’t enough proof. Her only hope is that she will be able to get justice for the poor dog through social media.
May has also told us that she will no longer help with rehoming dogs as this incident has dampened her spirit.
