This June, China will hold its annual Yulin Meat Festival, a tradition in which participants eat dog meat and lychees to mark the summer solstice. As such, in an act of courage and compassion, Chinese citizens and activists have come together to protest this cruel festival and the dog meat industry that supports it. With an estimated 300 dogs killed every day in preparation for the festival, citizens have banded together to call for its end. The festival is all perfectly legal – it’s no secret why people are upset.

So in a strong act of opposition, animal rights activists gathered at a government-organized event, which was attended by more than 100,000 people.

This was the perfect opportunity to capture authorities’ attention to the fact that the public will not stand for this disgusting industry.

Chinese Citizens Rally Together to End Meat Trade

In a Facebook post, Humane Society International stayed hopeful, noting that, “Momentum keeps building to shut down the despicable dog meat trade in China.”

Citizens proudly took the street, along with their four-legged friends, donning signs that read, “Legislate Animal Protection. Punish Dog Theft. Outlaw Dog Meat Trade!”

How Can You Help?

First and foremost, educating yourself and others about the dangers associated with eating dog meat is critical to bringing an end to this practice. Humane Society International has a wealth of information and resources to help and they also run large campaigns encouraging country leaders to take action to ban the trade altogether. Many people are not aware of the cruel practices and dangers or even the existence of the dog meat trade, so your best course of action is to educate yourself and others to expose the truth of this industry – share this article to get started!

I don't understand why it is more cruel to kill a dog for food than to kill a cow for food.

These people who eat Dogs, and hold an annual event, are animals themselves, and need their Ass kicked.
