Around 1000 cats were rescued by volunteers in Changsha, Hunan province, after the truck that was carrying them crashed en route to Guangdong’s restaurants. The cats were crammed into wooden crates, many of which had overturned in the crash.
A local police officer, Wang Yujing, who responded to the crash, appealed on Weibo for volunteers to rescue the poor felines. Dozens of volunteers came to help and the animals were treated at the scene. After the driver was paid for his shipment, all of the cats that had survived the crash were taken to a local animal shelter.
