These news are so big and so good! This terrible and cruel dog meat festival Yulin, in China is finally banned! There will be no more eating and killing dogs! Such a huge step forward!
Such a huge victory for animal lovers around the world! Dog meat festival is temporarily banned from the infamous Yulin Festival in China that already took the lives of thousands and thousands of innocent canines. The ban will come into effect on June 15th, that is one week before the start of the terrible festival. It will prohibit the sale of dog meat at restaurants, markets, and street vendors too. Those who do not obey will be facing a fine of up to 100,000 yuan (that is nearly $15,000) and also arrest.
Contrary to popular belief, this terrible festival is not some ancient tradition. It was actually invented back in 2010 as a way for dog meat traders to make more and more money. A lot of the dogs who are brought to the festival are actually stolen from their owners and also some still wear collars.
The methods in which dogs (and some cats) are killed are really unparalleled in cruelty around the world!
The Chinese festival already took the lives of thousands and thousands of innocent canines! Some dogs get stolen from their owners and end up at this horror festival!
Andrea Gung, who is an executive director of Duo Duo Animal Welfare Project comments: “Even if this is a temporary ban, we hope this will have a domino effect, leading to the collapse of the entire dog meat trade.” She adds “This ban is consistent with my experience that Yulin and also the rest of the country is changing for the better”. We hope this ban will stay and all this cruelty to animals will stop! Every animal has a soul and every one counts!
