No as there is DNA evidence and his word against yours. There may also be witnesses. He may also just pay some people to break your legs or worse. As a foreigner you are easy to spot. You may be a UFC winner it doesn't matter if you are identifiable they will get you. There is little defense against being run over by a blue truck. Don't resort to violence in another country unless in self defense. You may of course restrain the man with what is considered reasonable force to prevent him from harming the animal. Taiwan prison is not a nice place at all so don't risk it. I do not however do as I preach

I was only joking. I have much more self restraint that I made myself out to be. I wouldn't be happy if I had seen it though. I just hope I don't ever come across a situation like this. But it's good to know who to report to if I do.

You now have an SPCA in Taiwan, specifically set up to investigate animal cruelty. Use it.

That is so good that some areas have these services here! I must say Taiwan is one of the worst places as far as animal cruelty goes I have ever been. I like Taipei for reasons like this, there is more crackdown on idiotic behaviour. IN the country side i could find you 1000 abused dogs any day of the week, and probably a bunch of birds, turtles etc. I particularly hate the caged dog thing that is VERY common here. In some areas its almost every other house has some caged dog, and if not a dog some form of bird.


It makes me so happy to see there are peopel that care and try to change these things. Much respect!


But i feel the warnings about engaging people here are very very well said. Taiwanese are nice people, but there are a number of hot heads and people do get smashed and murdered over some heated argument that could of turned out differently. Stay safe, your safety before the poor animals, as harsh as that sounds.

Hi,

Do you guys know any organization I could call for animal rescue in Taichung/Zhanghua area?

I know Tuapa is working here, but I mailed them yesterday, so far no response. I need something I could use for emergencies.

I thought I have one, but gladly not. Last two days while going back from work (I work in a total middle of nowhere in Zhanghua county, but live in Taichung) I saw a big dog tied with a rope to a tree. He was beautiful but I could see the skin problems, like lots of big furry dogs gets here. The tree was next to a rice fields, in that area there is some fruit market, but generally middle of nowhere. I was so worried all evening that the dog was lost there forever not just for a while, and was planning what should I do if it would still be there in the morning. And seriously - I had no idea!
I drive a scooter, so not sure if I could take it to anywhere... even if, then to where? I have a cat and apartment building where neighbors can say "no dogs" if the dog as much as barks once. :bluemad: So even if I could take the dog somewhere - where?
Or who should I come to pick him up? I hear Taiwanese dog shelters are not so good in here...

any suggestion? I want to be ready for such situation.

Thanks, I will try. Seems like the things are more organized there in Taipei. Taichung I know have some organizations too. I wonder about Zhanghua, this is more of a countryside, and usually it's get worse in places like that.
Sigh :ponder:

There's an old post at the beginning of this thread that provides some contact information. Is it current?

At Yongfeng Rd. No. 262 there is a factory. Not just any factory, but one that instead of using a proper gate or guard uses an emotionally tortured black dog to bear its teeth and bark incessantly at anything that moves. It is kept in a small wooden box that allows just its head to protrude through a small hole.

As I passed a new Lexus was leaving the facility ...

What's the legal recourse for dealing with this?
