Vegan news: 400+ stolen pets rescued, UK supermarket giant launches new products and influencer turns carrots into “bacon”

The big vegan news story this week is that over 400 stolen pets were rescued earlier this month from an illegal slaughterhouse in the Chinese province of Henan.

Vegan news doesn’t come much more shocking than this. Shenzhen a city in the Guangdong province, announced in early April that consumption of all wildlife will be banned, including dogs and cats. 

The rescue operation on April 3rd took place after the Chinese authorities were made aware of the slaughterhouse by animal activists.

The rescued dogs were found in horrifying conditions, many wounded and crammed together in cages. A spokesperson from HSI told MailOnline that “this is such a typical story in China.”

As well as official police, several groups took part in the successful operation, including charities, pet owners, activists and volunteers.
