Learn about an island of dogs that are getting a helping hand from the locals. 

來看看當地居民如何對島上的狗伸出援手。

 

Wes Anderson’s Isle of Dogs is an animated film about dogs that are sent away to Trash Island because the government believes they are spreading diseases. One boy loves his dog so much that he is willing to risk his life to save it.

由魏斯安德森執導的《犬之島》是一部動畫片,故事講述有一群狗被送往垃圾島是因為政府認為牠們在傳播疾病。有個小男生因為太愛他的狗狗而願意冒著生命危險去救牠。

 

Although the film isn’t a true story, there’s a real-life place similar to Trash Island in Karachi, Pakistan. It’s called Dingy Island, and it’s empty except forgarbage and dozens of dogs. No one is sure how the dogs got there, but they have lived there for many years. In Pakistan, dogs aren’t usually kept as pets, so strays are very common. Many people think they are just dirty animals, so few people care whether they live or die. Without food or drinking water, these dogs can’t survive on the island.

雖然這部電影並非真實故事,但是在巴基斯坦喀拉蚩有一個真實的地方跟垃圾島很相似。它被稱為丁吉島,而且那裡除了垃圾和很多隻狗外都空蕩蕩的。沒有人能確定這些狗是怎麼到那裡的,但是牠們已經在那裡生活了許多年。在巴基斯坦,狗通常不會被當成寵物飼養,所以流浪狗很常見。許多人認為牠們只是骯髒的動物,所以很少人在乎牠們是生或是死。沒有食物和飲用水的話,這些狗就無法在島上存活下來。

 

 Luckily, local fishermen decided to look after the dogs. Every few days, they bring the strays food and fresh water. Some fishermen see it as a test from God. They believe that if they take care of the dogs, God will take care of them in the future. While stray dogs continue to suffer around the world, at least these fishermen are doing something to help.

幸運的是,當地的漁夫決定照顧這些狗。每隔幾天,他們會帶食物和乾淨的水給這些流浪狗。有些漁夫把這件事視為來自上帝的考驗。他們相信如果他們照顧這些狗,上帝在未來就會眷顧他們。雖然流浪狗持續在世界各地受苦,但是至少這些漁夫有在做些事情幫忙。
