Every year around the summer solstice in Yulin, a city in Guangxi providence of China is the Yulin festival. About 2000-3000 dogs are stolen from good loving owners and others are strays. They are then transported in tiny cages with a bunch of other dogs with absolutely no room to move. And as if that weren't bad enough, they don't even have any food or water for days and that's how some die. (These kinds of events aren't just dogs there cats too).
When the Yulin festival starts, dogs are hung, boiled, beaten to there death, there throats get slit, and more. They kill dogs for there meat and that is part of the festival. Some believe the meat brings good luck, good health, fights off diseases,and more. Some say if you beat them to death the meat taste better and its more tender. Sadly this event goes on for 10 cruel days and it starts on June 21.
10 million dogs and 4 million cats are killed a year because of dogs meat eating festivals and eating the meat alone. Dogs should not be treated like this. Millions are against these kinds of events and it has not stopped. These events should be banned, dogs and cats deserve more than this. Dogs and cats should be at home with there loving families. PLEASE sign this petition to help stop the Yulin festival and save the Dogs and Cats! Please also go to www.senate.gov to contact your local senator to ask for help to stop the Yulin festival!
