Fighting for animal liberation and an end to speciesism
At 11am on March 13th 2011, Du Yufeng of Bo Ai Animal Protection Centre of Guangyuan received a phone call saying two stray dogs were victims of a car accident, one was killed instantly by the car and the Samoyed had a minor injury to its hind leg. When Du rushed to the site at Guangyuan Xiba Station, she witnessed the Samoyed trying to wake his friend up by licking and stomping on his dead body.
According to a street sweeper, the Samoyed dragged his friend's body from the road to the park and had been by his friend’s side for 28 hours without eating or drinking.
Initially Du was worried that the Samoyed may growl at her but after much persuasion Du and one of her volunteers managed to put a leash on the Samoyed and carried his dead friend into the boot of the car. The Samoyed did not give up, instead he jumped into the boot of the car still to try to wake his friend up.
Du took the Samoyed to the vet for a health check and a clean bath. His dead friend was given a proper burial.
Du told some of the people watching the scene, “People have a disregard for life and they abandon animals? They are flesh and blood, with intelligence and can be the most sincere and most faithful friend. They love humans more than they love themselves”
Du said that she dare not rehome the Samoyed because his is aloof and unpredictable. He has a special place in Bo Ai : Du's bedroom where she keeps all the unadoptable dogs and can keep a close eye on them.
