Lets stop the 2018 Yulin Dog Meat Festival.

About the Festival

The Lychee and Dog Meat Festival also know as the Yulin Dog Meat Festival, is an annual festival that started in 2009. The festival is held during the summer solstice where they eat lynchees and dog meat. The exact date of this event is from June 21st until June 30th in Yulin, a city in China. During it, about 10,000 to 15,000 dogs (as well as cats) are consumed. However, worldwide 25 million dogs are either bought/sold, tortured, sold, or/and eaten annually. The illegal dog and cat meat trade makes it possible. Some dogs are either stray dogs from the streets or from loving families which they are stolen from. They are tortured afterward and some even go days without food and water in an uncomfortable community.

Why Do They Use Dog Meat?

Approximately, 400 years ago the tradition of consuming dog meat began. Even though there is no evidence that can support it, some people do think that the dog meat helped prevent the heat throughout the hot summer months.

Don't they think it's inhumane?

The festival goers and local citizens think its completely humane to kill dogs and eat their meat. They actually think that killing dogs are "just like eating porks and beef; killing cows, pigs, etc." However, animal activists and others who are against this act think it is completely inhumane and they way these dogs are treated are completely abnormal.

We need to stop this before the next event in 2018.

让我们停止2018年榆林狗肉节。

关于节日

荔枝和狗肉节也被称为“榆林狗肉节”,是一个在2009年开始的年度节日。节日在夏至时间举行,他们吃的是肉食和狗肉。这个活动的确切日期是6月21日至6月30日在中国的榆林。在这期间,大约有一万到一万五千只狗(以及猫)被消耗掉。然而,全世界有2500万只狗每年都会被买卖,折磨,出售或者吃掉。非法的狗和猫肉贸易使它成为可能。有些狗是从街上流浪的狗,或者是从被偷走的爱心家庭。后来他们遭到酷刑,有的甚至在没有食物和水的日子里,在一个不舒服的社区里度过了几天。

为什么他们使用狗肉?

大约在400年前,消费狗肉的传统开始了。尽管没有证据表明可以支持,但有些人认为在整个炎热的夏季,狗肉都能帮助预防炎热。

难道他们不认为这是不人道的?

节日游客和当地居民认为它完全人道,杀狗,吃肉。他们实际上认为杀狗就像“吃猪肉和牛肉,杀牛,猪等”但是,反对这种行为的动物主义者和其他人认为这是完全不人道的,他们对待这些狗的方式是完全不正常的。

我们需要在2018年的下一个事件之前停止这个。
