The lychee and dog meat festival is a horrific event in the city of Yulin in Guangxi Zhuang, China. The festival lasts ten days. It starts June 21 and ends June 30 (During the summer solstice). The festival started in 2009. 10,000 dogs are beaten and skinned alive for their meat every year. Some of the dogs are stolen from their owners and from their backyards. Many Chinese practitioners of folk medicine think that dog meat will help to ward off the heat that is present during the summer months. This has no supporting evidence. This effects Canada on a global scale because we can all do something to stop this torment on dogs. Dogs are not meant to be tortured and killed for meat, dogs commit their lives to loving and protecting their owners. Why don't we do the same for our dogs? Sign this petition to help stop the torment.
