As the summer solstice quickly approaches, so does the beginning of the disturbing and cruel Yulin Dog Festival. The annual lychee and dog meat eating festival takes place in China’s Guangxi district and has been protested for years by animal lovers, animal rights organizations, and even big-name celebrities across the globe. One of the most vocal celebrities is long-time animal advocate Ricky Gervais, who recently spoke candidly in a Facebook video about the heartbreaking event.

As Gervais pointed out, this event isn’t just about eating dogs, it’s about everything involved in the entire process. Not only are many of the dog’s stolen pets, they are crammed like sardines into tiny cages and transported for days without food or water in the blistering heat. Sadly, that is only the beginning of what’s to come for these poor souls.

Dogs and other animals are tortured in the most unimaginable ways because of the belief that the adrenaline created by stress and fear improves the taste. This twisted festival lasts for 10 days and more than 10,000 innocent dogs will be sentenced to this heartbreaking fate. Huge thanks to Ricky for posting such a heartfelt video to spread the word about this horrible event.

Ricky Gervais has a wonderful voice in advocating for animals - however, he has said some terrible things about those suffering with debilitating illness, in the name of comedy. He needs to apply his compassion to everything otherwise the message is lost or at least reduced!

Thanks Ricky! We need to end the holocaust that is the meat industry based on animal slaughter, meat grown in a lab is a different animal, pardon the pun.
