Australian tourists in Bali are unknowingly being fed dog meat and supporting a brutal trade which sees the slaughter of thousands of animals.

Horrifying footage shot by Animals Australia on the popular Indonesian island shows how dogs are caught with nooses, tied up and killed before their meat is sold as chicken satay sticks to tourists.

‘When we embarked on this investigation, we didn’t have any idea that we would be documenting that dog meat is entering into tourist areas,’ Animals Australia’s Lyn White told the ABC’s 7.30 program.

Australian tourists in Bali are unknowingly being fed dog meat. This vendor selling dog meat at the popular Double Six Beach near Seminyak told tourists his product was chicken satay.

‘We just know how deeply this will distress and shock tourists that have gone to Bali.’

Disturbing footage aired on the program on Monday night showed one dog meat vendor approaching a group of Australian tourists at the popular Double Six Beach near Seminyak.

‘Just one dollar… satay chicken… not dog,’ the man explained, showing the group of men a box labelled ‘sate.’

‘As long as it’s not dog,’ one tourist replied.

When an Animals Australia investigator approached the vendor just moments later asking what he was selling, he replied: ‘Dog satay.’

‘Just one dollar… satay chicken… not dog,’ this vendor man explained, showing a group of men a box labelled ‘sate.’ He later admitted to an Animals Australia investigator it was dog meat.

Disturbing footage captured by the animal rights organisation show how dogs are tied up and killed before their meat is sold as chicken satay sticks at tourists hubs.

‘This is why you have a picture of a dog here?’ the investigator asked, pointing to a pictured strapped to his moped.

‘Yeah, yeah,’ he replied.

During his four-month investigation, a man the ABC named as Luke watched as dogs were bludgeoned, hanged by the throat until they died of asphyxiation or had poison forced down their throats.

Dog meat is being sold to tourists at restaurants and and roadside barbaques like the one above.

‘Incredibly poisoned meat is entering the food trade through the dog meat trade,’ Ms White said.

She added: ‘This is a profoundly distressing situation. Not only is the suffering of the dogs horrifying, tourists are unwittingly fuelling the trade.

‘Most tourists have no idea that the letters RW on the outside of popular street food stalls in Bali indicates that dog meat is being served.

‘In addition, mobile dog meat vendors are deliberately targeting tourists on beaches and are prepared to lie about the origin of the meat to get a sale.’

Some people in Bali believe dog meat is a healthy alternative, and the belief that it increases male virility and its low cost has seen its popularity grow over the years.

Ms White said her organisation is working to end the savage practice without ‘condemning’ the Balinese culture.

‘We have based Animal’s Australia’s Veterinary Director in Bali as part of our offer to partner with the Bali government to create animal welfare improvements on the island,’ she said.

‘This is not about condemning a culture, it is about addressing unnecessary cruelty and seeking to transform a situation of unimaginable suffering into a positive outcome.

‘Dog eating in Bali was fuelled by a minority group who came to the island to work in the hospitality industry – it is not a Balinese practice.

‘For thousands of years Bali’s dogs have lived peacefully in villages with locals – it is our hope that they will be able to do so again.’
