Please consider contributing to our initiative of raising a strong voice against Yulin Dog Meat festival by sharing this post and raise an awareness. This contribution doesn't involve any donation and crowfunding.
Across the world wide web there have been talks on on the infamous Yulin Dog Meat festival, the 10 days annual celebration held in Yulin, Guangxi, China, during the summer solstice, where the festival goers eat dog meat. Several thousands of dogs that are rounded up to be eaten, include all types of dogs starting from poor strays to stolen house hold pets .
A festival cannot be an event of cruelty. Such events should be abolished completely.
It is immensely appreciable that in 2011, Jinhua Hutou Dog Meat Festival in Zhejiang, which was another popular festival, was completely banned by the local government. Good news is that the sale of dog meat in Yulin have come down by 60% in 2014 from the previous year. Several dog meat restaurants in some cities have closed down. But this needs to come to a complete end.
This appeal is not only in the interest animal welfare, but also in the interest of public health and food safety as the same time.
Our earnest request to Mr. Chen Wu, the Governor of Guangxi Autonomous Region and Mr. Peng Qinghua, the Guangxi Communist Party of China Chief to kindly consider putting a permanent end to this cruelty.
Yang Xiaoyun (photo above). She is different from all who visit Yulin Dog Meat festival. Xiaoyun stands out of the crowd and provides the dogs with unconditional love, food and water. More than that she also provides medical attention to he furry kids.We need more people like Xiaoyun in China and all across the globe.
