580 Dogs Saved in China

An ordinary Chinese citizen spotted a truck packed with hundreds of whimpering dogs on a Beijing highway.  After realizing they were most likely headed to be slaughtered and served as food, the man began begging fellow animal lovers to help him force the driver of the truck to release the dogs.
Close to 200 people responded.  They blocked the truck at a toll booth for 15 hours, until the driver agreed to release the 580 dogs for $17,000.  

Amazing!  What an incredible rescue story of social activism in China!
