The annual Yulin Dog Meat Festival is right around the corner, despite years of protests the festival is still going on. If you are unfamiliar with the festival, thousands of dogs and cats are murdered and eaten.
Last year around 10,000 dogs and cats were used during the 10-day festival, which takes place in Guangxi Zhuang autonomous region in the South-East of the country.
According to daily petition:
The local government has promised year after year to take action against this inhumane event. However, nothing has been done. If action is not taken immediately, thousand of innocent dogs will be sacrificed in the name of culinary tradition come June.
Over the past few years, more and more activists have been on festival grounds, trying to buy as many dogs as possible from vendors and saving their lives. Unfortunately, without an intervention from the authorities, they will never be able to save all the dogs.
Please sign my petition and help stop the 2017 edition of the Yulin dog meat festival. Dogs are family, not food and we demand that their lives are spared.”
Please, everyone, let’s take action now!
