I am a resident of Vietnam, I write this article with the deepest of my heart, I am deeply saddened.
We have just gone through a 4 month long social distancing period with extreme, negative regulations. Our country is poor, so we don't get much support. Without a job, without money or food support, the workers and poor people live in extreme misery.
In the midst of a chaotic society, Hung and his wife raised 15 dogs. Despite poverty and lack of food, they still did not abandon any dogs.
October 7, 2021, when the distance orders were eased, they decided to return to their hometown, Ca Mau province. A journey of 300km, lasting 18 hours, from Long An Province to Ca Mau Province on an old motorbike. They bring in 15 dogs including adult dogs and newborn puppies.
A beautiful flower blooms in the arid desert.
But when they arrived in Ca Mau province, both of them were found to be positive for covid 19, and they were taken to isolation at an isolation station. In Vietnam, being positive for covid 19 is a terrible thing, false and negative propaganda has brought a stigmatized look to them.
15 dogs were put in bags and submerged in water, then taken to be cremated, one dog escaped and was beaten to death in front of Mrs. Hung. She was shocked and didn't eat or drink for a whole day,
The flower was destroyed at the most beautiful moment. We were left with only the sandy desert. A desert of heartache, resentment, anger, helplessness.
On the evening of October 9 and all day of October 10, the Facebook social network in Vietnam was flooded with posts about 15 dogs, they were extremely indignant.
The people in our country are so small. The lives of dogs are even smaller.
