Finally, There Will Be No More Dog Meat At China’s Biggest Dog-Eating Festival! (10 pics)

Posted in Animals   19 May 2017   / 1787 views

Great news – dog meat has just been temporarily banned from the infamous Yulin Festival

The Chinese festival has already taken the lives of thousands and thousands of innocent canines

The ban will come into effect on June 15 – that’s one week before the start of the festival

It will prohibit the sale of dog meat at restaurants, markets, and street vendors

Those who don’t obey will be facing a fine of up to 100,000 yuan (nearly $15,000) and arrest

Contrary to popular belief, the festival is not some old tradition – it was invented back in 2010

A lot of the dogs who are brought to the festival are stolen from their owners and still wear collars

The methods in which dogs (and cats) are killed are unparalleled in cruelty around the world

“We hope this will have a domino effect, leading to the collapse of the dog meat trade”

“This ban is consistent with my experience that Yulin and the rest of the country is changing for the better”

I don't see a problem with the Chinese eating dog meat at all. The problem lies in how they treat these poor animals. The pictures speak for themselves, and I cringe when I hear how dogs are sometimes skinned alive.

The type of animal doesn't matter; they should all be treated with respect, no matter what we use them for.
