Stop the 2017 Yulin dog meat festival

This video was taken by an animal rights activist personally as evidence at the yulin dog meat and lychee festival in yulin china. This “festival” is an event that starts on June 21st of every year during the summer solstice and it lasts for 10 long horrifying days in which 10,000–15,000 dogs are consumed. However, it is estimated 25 million dogs are stolen, sold, bought, and eaten every year with the illegal dog and cat meat trade

Stand With Us Against the Yulin Dog Meat Festival

“They’re just like your pets — eager to please, loyal, and trusting.

But instead of receiving love and safety in return, they’re tortured, stuffed into tiny cages, and paraded through crowded, noisy streets. Frightened and disoriented, they smell the cooking flesh of other dogs, hear their screams, and then feel the agony of cleavers severing their limbs. Many are skinned alive.

They are the thousands of dogs and puppies — and hundreds of cats and kittens — who are beaten and butchered annually as part of a grotesque summer solstice dog meat “celebration” in Yulin, China, scheduled this year for June 21.”

Stop the Yulin Dog Meat Festival in China Permanently!

“While watching Lisa Vanderpump’s popular reality show, I was sickened to learn about the Yulin Dog Meat Festival. This festival is cruel and hideous. It started in 2010 and has no religious or ceremonial value. The dogs are beaten and then skinned alive — crying out in agony as people cheer on the butchers. Then the poor creatures are fed to people all over the city.”

“A fate worse than death”

Stop the torture and killing of dogs and the festival of dog meat in China.
Last year over 10,000 cats and dogs were unjustifiably tortured, inhumanely killed and eaten in a savage meat eating festival in China. Sadly, many of these individuals have the misconception that beating, skinning, blow-torching and boiling these helpless animals alive increases the tenderness of the meat…… Specifically, there is the necessity to inflict and to sustain suffering as much as possible on the selected creature(s) in order to ‘improve the quality’ — read ‘taste’ — of the doomed animal(s).

Yes there have been petitions now for a number of years, I have been aware of this hideous festival for at least two. This event is however not some ancient festivity, not that that would justify it of course. No this brutal ritual to celebrate the summer solstice has only taken place since 2010!

This year will be the 7th time this event, which also involves the brutal slaughter of cats, has taken place amidst protests world wide.

While it may seem like there has been little progress in bringing an end to this cruelty we must not give up hope. Remember the campaign to ban the Gadhimi festival? The outcome of several years of campaigning by Animal Welfare Network Nepal, Humane Society International and other animal rights supporters resulted in a total ban of this barbarity. The same can happen with the Yulin Festival
