Buzz Petition

For many, summer marks the start of beach trips, drive-in movies, and homemade ice cream, but for others, it means suffering, pain, and death. The Yulin Dog Meat Festival is fast approaching and countless dogs (and cats) will be brutally killed for human consumption – unless we take a stand and refuse to back down! The Care2 petition team has organized a petition addressing China’s President, Xi Jinping to shut down this cruel practice once and for all.

The annual lychee and dog meat-eating festival takes place in China’s Guangxi district and is easily one of the cruelest practices in the country. Unfortunately, despite global outrage, dogs continue to be slaughtered in the most inhumane ways imaginable – all because of the belief that the adrenaline created by stress and fear improves the taste. As if it weren’t disturbing enough, many of the dogs sold at the festival are stolen pets who are lured and kidnapped from their homes. They are transported in tiny cages in the scorching heat without food, water or care, only to suffer horrific deaths.

Thanks to protests by animal lovers across the globe and efforts by organizations like Humane Society International, the number of dogs facing this grim fate has dropped from more than 10,000 to 1,000. If you agree that even one dog sentenced to this outrageously twisted practice is one too many, please sign and share the petition!

With the majority of the Chinese population not even eating dog meat, there is absolutely no reason this horrible practice shouldn’t be outlawed. Animal lovers, rescue organizations, and even celebrities have spoken out against the dog meat festival, and clearly, it has made a significant impact, but we have to keep fighting! No dog, cat, or any other animal should be made to suffer in such despicable ways. Let’s stop the sale and consumption of dog meat at Yulin in its tracks before another innocent life is lost.

Thank you for this and other petitions. I have signed and shared it as well as many other petitions addressing the horrible practices at Yulin. It seems that there are some people commenting here that do not have their hearts in the right place, for the innocent dogs and cats tortured and killed for their flesh. Please deliver this petition in time to hopefully persuade the Chinese leaders to stop Yulin once and for all.

Who said that this is a reliable and genuine petition? 1. Care2 is not an animal right group! 2. The correct target should be the Governor of Guangxi - Yulin AND NOT THE PRESIDENT OF CHINA! Xi ping !!! Are you really so naive? A) do you really think that Care2 will send the whole package to the president of China ? and how? B) The president of China do not involve himself with traditional customs from Chinese provinces!! You should be ashamed to share such kind of WORTHLESS and NOT RELIABLE so-called \'petitions created by anonymous people on Care2 instead of sharing REAL EXISTING petitions who have been all created by well known animal right groups such as HSI (The humane society international) LCA (Last Chance For Animals) Animal Asia, IDA (In Defense For Animals) etc.. etc !! If you aren\'t aware about this issue then you should better no share and not taking the precious time of the public for nothing.. !

Meat is murder! End this holocaust because people do not need meat under any circumstance. Their lives are not ours.
