Almost 2,800 stray cats were rescued by a group of volunteer activists in Wuhan, China. The most horrifying part of the rescue was that the stray cats were being rounded up and shipped off to be killed for food. The cats were on their way to Nanning in the Guangxi Province where they were about to be slaughtered. Luckily, the activists located the truck and stopped them in their tracks.

The brave animal rescue volunteers spotted the truck and were able to block its path so that it couldn't advance. When the authorities arrived, they discovered that the driver of the truck had forged papers and so they made him return the cats to Wuhan. It is not entirely clear what will happen next to the cats, but they will be checked for diseases and the rescue has definitely given them a second chance at life.
