On June 21, China will once again host its annual ‘Dog Meat Festival’. This barbaric event happens in the city of Yulin, in China’s Guangxi province. Thousands of dogs, many of them stolen pets, are captured and transported over long distances under horrific conditions.
Once in Yulin, they’re held in crowded cages without food or water until they are killed. Often, they are beaten and their throats are slit in front of other terrified animals.
Please sign this petition now to show Chinese officials that the international community is outraged by this carnage. Not only will the dogs suffer enormously during the arduous and long journey to Yulin, they will then be subjected to being beaten and ultimately slaughtered whilst fully conscious. This MUST not be allowed to continue. Many of these dogs will have once been someone’s pet. Absolutely barbaric custom, which Chinese officials should be utterly ashamed of.
