Yulin’s Dog Meat Festival Starts June 21
You may not know that in China, there’s an annual festival where people kill and eat dogs. It starts on June 21, 2016. One day after the summer solstice.
At its height, something like 10,000 dogs and an unknown number of cats were caught, killed and cooked for the macabre consumption of visitors to their fest. Many of these animals were beloved pets stolen from their homes or streets, to be sold to the Yulin market.
Other animals come from illegal dog meat farms bred for the purpose of being sold to Yulin.
If you are on Facebook or Twitter, you can find out what’s happening. Just search “Yulin Dog Meat” on Google to get the links to news and articles.
Matt Damon, Kate Mara & Celebs speak out about Yulin
There are plenty of videos on Youtube showing dead cooked dogs hanging by hooks in the market. Or the body of a dog in a plastic tub, ready to be cooked. Officials in China haven’t tried to stop it, quoting the same excuses.
I was shocked to find out today that 10 million dogs were consumed by China in 2014. Serious! Click on the link below.
Sadly, man’s best friend is not respected at Yulin.
The people at Yulin, residents and fans of dog meat, argue that dog meat is tasty. There’s no difference to eating pork, chicken and beef.
Please pray for the animals at Yulin. Many activists have gone there to buy and save as many animals as they can. But the animal traders increase their prices to double or more when they find out that the buyers are activists.
Please donate if you can. Many organisations like PETA Asia and Animals Asia are doing a great job. Gruesome. RIP the animals who could not be saved in time.
Live long & prosper. Peace.
