Twitter user Xingyi Danielle is from Singapore, but her dad is stationed in China for work. It was there that, while walking through an alley to buy dinner last month, he encountered a group of people selling live dogs, trapped in bags, who were fated to be slaughtered for meat.
Rather than walk on by, the father chose to act. For about $90, he saved a life.
“His environment isn’t dog-friendly so he couldn’t buy more,” Danielle told The Dodo. “But [he] at least got to save one.”
