This is no ordinary truck. It is a mobile gas chamber. For Japan's abandoned dogs.
In Japan nearly 90% of the unwanted animals are destroyed, far more than any other countries (the figure for Hong Kong, as mentioned yesterday, is about 75%). However, as no one wants an extermination centre in their neighbourhood, Tokashima Prefecture came up with the solution of loading unwanted dogs into chambers in a truck and pumping gas into the chambre on the way to the crematorium.
Another sad story of irresponsible owners sending innocent animals to a free ride of death.
