Animal cruelty, such as using them for consumption, is somewhat very barbaric because such things can only be done by people who have such obsessed and dirtied minds. Nowadays, our pets, like our cats and dogs, are being butchered for the reason that they are part of the community’s culture. But can you just imagine eating a person’s pet for food? According to Beopjeong Buddhist Priest, “Dog meat consumption is an evil custom that doesn’t belong in a modern society as well as a vice harmful to the mental health of our citizens. In my opinion, the fact that our society has been wasting national resources on utterly divisive internal conflicts in all walks of life, such as politics, economy and religion from ancient times is a natural result of evil practice of betrayal and a loss of trust in humanity through the slaughtering and eating of dogs which is then applied in human interactions consciously and unconsciously. Additionally, the slaughter of dogs causes severe pollution. In the process of mass breeding of dogs, a lot of noise pollution occurs and its negative effects on the public are serious. To solve that dog farmers commit the cruelty of forcibly bursting dogs’ eardrums to reduce the noise of barking. There isn’t anything they won’t do in order to eat dog meat. Moreover, to flavor the meat, sometimes the dogs are hung by the neck then mercilessly bludgeoned all over with a club, bursting their internal organs and killing it brutally and heartlessly. We must indeed call this a diabolical behavior.” Sometimes it is simply that people do not understand that what they are doing to an animal is causing the animal pain. Other times, people who have been abused themselves will be cruel to animals because they think that is the only way to treat others. This is not the proper way of treating animals just because of their personal reasons. Not only the government, but also people from all over the world should be aware of these issues concerning animals because they are also a person’s best friend and a way to lessen an individual’s stress. This is called animal abuse and this should not go on.

Animal cruelty is the point at wherein somebody harms a creature or does not enjoy a creature capably, as not giving a dog or cat sustenance and water. It is illegal to be barbarous or hurt animals, even your own pets. It's likewise called animal abuse, or neglect. Among the abused animals, dogs, cats, horses, and livestock are the most often reported. According to the 1,423 U.S. cruelty cases on pet-abuse.com’s 2011 digest, the following are the species of the victim:

  • 70.1% involved dogs;
  • 20.9% involved cats;
  • 24.1% involved other animals.

Undercover investigations have stated that there are a lot of animal cruelty cases in the factory farm industry. But since livestock have weak protections under the state cruelty laws, only big cases are reported, and few are sued.

Here are some example of animal cruelty happening around the world:

  • Over 2 million dogs are brutally killed in South Korea every year. That's over 5,000 dogs a day who get strangled, burned, electrocuted or beaten to death for their meat.
  • The Nebraska Humane Society has no right to remove a dog from the home with unjust cause and that instead of euthanasia as an ultimatum, rehabilitation through training be offered to families willing to put forth the time and money please sign.
  • Yulin is a dog and cat meat-eating eating festival. The traders continue to insist that its culture but that is a lie, this festival only started in 2010.

In conclusion Dogs are human’s best friend. They could do many things that are beneficial for us like being able to increase our mood dramatically because they have a lot of psychological skills that gave them the capability to do that. Admit it or not, we need them in our lives. In the end, every creature in this world is precious no matter what they are. These dogs are being abused and tormented in a way they shouldn’t be, and we are the ones who could stop those people from doing such things again and again and also pets such as dogs and cats are kept by most people as a form of companion, protection, a friend and most of all, as a family. However, despite them being a source of positive vibes, other traditions are being practiced to kill, and even eat these animal companions. Festivals such as, the Yulin Festival in China, are being held every year so as to celebrate their tradition as a whole community. It said that this festival caused an estimated number of 10, 000 cats and dogs killed and murdered as a form of tradition. These animals are even said to have been killed in a brutal way—by means of cage, and even skinned and bludgeoned alive (Henderson, 2016). Most of the dogs that are being consumed are pets stolen from a family, stray dogs or in some, are being sold by their owners to be served at the festival. Because of that, the world has been alarmed in this kind of tradition, there are organizations against this tradition.
