The “Yulin Lychee and Dog Meat Festival” must come to an end! The Yulin Dog Festival is a fest that takes place in Yulin, China during June 21-30 this 2019 year. Dogs are tortured, roasted, and burned for their own meat. In the span of 10 days, approximately 10,000-15,000 dogs are eaten. And you might think, well why isn’t the government doing anything? But they have tried. Since 2014, the Yulin Lychee and Dog Meat Festival was an unofficial holiday. Many local towns still celebrate, though. Technically they can still celebrate this holiday because eating dog meat in China is not illegal, like it is in the U.S. 

Some say that eating dog meat is just the same as eating pork or beef, but I would disagree. Animal rights officials say that these dogs were domestic pets that were cruelly treated before being killed. Sometimes they were beaten, hit, and even skinned or boiled alive. This event is completely inhumane and tragic.

So many people are effected in this situation, especially the owners. Yup, that’s right. All of these dogs were once house pets who had loving owners who once cared for them. Many people think that locals stole the dogs from the households because pictures and videos showed that they still had collars on.

But you can help make the Yulin Lychee and Dog Meat Festival illegal by donating to animal welfare charities, non-profit organizations, and even signing this petition. “Be the change you wish to see in the world,” Mahatma Ghandi, an Indian activist once said. The choices you make today shape your world tomorrow.
