We’re not new to rescue at Riley’s Place, and we’ve heard our share of animal cruelty stories. Well, now it seems there’s a new one out there and it’s absolutely horrifying! It’s called “trunking” and it’s enough to make you sick to your stomach and really really angry!

That should be enough to get you started on your own Googling for more information — if you can stomach it that is.
