FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 Cristiano Ronaldo bought the entire Juventus squad iMacs after he was sent off against Valencia in his first Champions League appearance for the club. Wojciech Szczesny has revealed Ronaldo bought the entire Juventus squad iMacs after he was sent off in his Champions League debut for the club. Juventus faced Serie A side Valencia and the Portuguese superstar was dismissed after pulling the hair of opposition defender Jeison Murillo. Luckily for Ronaldo, Juventus still went on to triumph 2-0 but he was said to be furious with the sending off. At the time, Massimiliano Allegri was in charge and he had put in place a rule which meant players had to purchase the rest of the squad presents when they were adjudged to have done something worthy of a fine.

Dozens of dogs rescued from South Korean dog meat farm arrive in

first_imgAn animal welfare group that recently rescued more than 170 dogs from a dog meat farm in South Korea says next year’s Winter Olympics in PyeongChang represent an opportunity to pressure the country’s government to end the controversial industry.Humane Society International’s Canadian branch said 50 of the dogs rescued from the facility in Namyangju have arrived in Canada in the last five days and are bound for shelters and rescue groups in Ontario and Quebec.Another 120 or so dogs are headed to the United States and the United Kingdom, the organization said.Rebecca Aldworth, the group’s executive director, said they helped the meat farm’s owner transition to another line of work and saved the animals with the owner’s consent.She’s hoping international pressure will push the South Korean government to adopt a similar approach.“The Olympics will be held in South Korea and this creates a huge opportunity for the international community to apply pressure to the government of South Korea and to urge them to… transition dog meat farmers to a more humane activity and shut down the dog meat trade for good,” she said.“We see a growing culture in South Korea that’s creating more and more opposition to the dog meat trade domestically and there’s increasing sympathy within government for transition farmers out of the industry and ending the dog meat trade for good.”The Namyangju dog meat farm, which has now shut down, was one of roughly 17,000 such facilities in South Korea, where an estimated 2.5 million dogs are killed for meat each year, she said.“This horrific dog meat farm is one of the worst HSI has ever seen and I am thrilled we are shutting it down for good,” Aldworth said.“More than 170 dogs and puppies were intensively confined in cramped, filthy, barren wire cages positioned over months of accumulated waste. The dogs had no protection from the freezing temperatures,” she said.“These dogs have been spared a lifetime of misery and a brutal death at the hands of the dog meat trade.”Aldworth said she hoped many of the dogs would find permanent new homes before the holidays.“A lot of these dogs are very traumatized and very frightened but even in the four days we’ve been interacting with them in Canada, we’ve already seen them come out of their shells,” she said.“They’re wagging their tails when we approach, putting their paws up on their cages so it’s clear that these dogs are going to make amazing companion animals.”last_img read more
