#StopYuLin2015: 10,000 Dogs Tortured as Part of Annual Yulin Dog-Eating Festival

Despite worldwide outcry and repeated efforts by animal activists to put an end to the Yulin Dog Eating Festival, a yearly tradition in Yulin, Guangxi Zhuang autonomous region of China, the festival, deeply rooted in ancient Chinese tradition, will begin June 21, 2015.

Yulin residents cherish the annual summer solstice celebration, which involves the mass torture, slaughter, and consumption of about 10,000 dogs.

The Guardian, a UK-based news source said in an article,

Animal rights groups say 10,000 dogs are slaughtered during the festival each year, and that many are electrocuted, burned and skinned alive. Pictures posted online show flayed dogs, dogs hanging from meat hooks, and piles of dog corpses on the side of the road. In China dog meat is prized as a nutritious wintertime dish that doctors can prescribe to treat maladies such as impotence and poor circulation.

In addition to protests against the tradition of eating an animal that is cherished, even in China, as a family pet and companion, critics claim that the dogs are illegally obtained, usually stolen family pets or picked up as strays. And, because these dogs are not raised in farms and are questionably sourced, there are no quarantine systems in place to monitor the health of the animals, thereby raising additional concerns of safety to Yulin residents that partake in the festival.

According to an open letter by the Hong Kong-based NGO Animals Asia, many of the dogs consumed during the festival are strays and abductees. Some are transported to the city on filthy, overcrowded trucks, significantly increasing the risk that they carry rabies and other contagious diseases.

Efforts by activists to put a stop to the festival, including writing letters to the Yulin government, recruiting celebrities to openly condemn the acts, and even petitioning the Obama Administration to step in, have upset the Yulin locals.

27-year old Wei Huan, from Guilin told the China Daily Newspaper, “Why do we have to follow their (the protesters’) likes and dislikes?” She said that she grew up eating the dog-meat meal which is served with lychees and strong grain liquor, and considers it to be “the tastiest dish.”

Although the festival has not been cancelled, Yulin authorities have promised to tighten sanitation inspections and crack down on dog slaughtering in public during this year’s festival as a result of the protests. Currently there are no animal welfare laws in mainland China, but the selling of dog meat requires some level of regulation, though it’s commonly understood that these regulations are rarely enforced.

So, what can be done? While efforts to end the ancient dog-eating tradition have been largely unsuccessful, continuing to protest and express outrage, at the very least for the way the dogs are acquired and for the lack of health and safety regulations, may eventually work.

In 2011, a similar festival in the Zhejiang province of China was cancelled due to public outcry and a massive internet petition.

    These people are as sick minded as ISIS and nobody says they shouldn't be dealt with. These depraved specimens make the human race look like biological vomit. If this is humanity then we are vile. I'm certain some idiots would try to rationally philosophically that it would be ok to skin, boil alive and eat babies if they could convince themselves it had a deep spiritual meaning with an age old custom.

    this is quite accurately the most vile, barbaric, cruel practice of torturing animals i have ever seen. what kinds of people do this? WHY? WHY? WHY? has all the humanity
    escaped this people? let's put them in a vat of boiling oil or water? (practiced by the way in the United Kingdom of Henry VIII and his daughter Elizabeth. I don't understand is and., thankfully, i will NEVER comprehend it because those who do are MONSTERS!!!! nothing less. many holy scriptures and philosophies instruct us to turn the other cheek. i would not be able to but that's because i am a sinner and imperfect. the people who participate in this ritual have a special place waiting for them. i have to believe that. i don't think even God could even believe that this kind of cruelty was possible. God help them and pray and raise awareness and raise money so we can stop this kind of barbarianism. may god bless him with his grace and take away their pain.

      Why don't you go to Yulin and have some of this shit done to you and see how it feels. Maybe there would be one less asshole like you on the planet. You must have had wonderful parents. I give them props for raising such an idiot.

    whenever these people get sick, lonely or just go hungry, they should remember which animal they hurt. because dogs and cats don’t know any better than to love people no matter how mean and cruel people could be to them. i hope that every person who hurts an animal would die in the same way.

    Do not you understand? Let them do it. These stupid and ignorant chinease will die by themselves. One day they will understand that what they do will lead them to their doom. It’s in this way that this barbaric practice will stop.

    Eating them. Well, as with eating any animal it is a balance between human wants, needs? and the wants needs of the animal. BUT THERE DOESN’T NEED TO BE CRUELTY. THE BEASTS ARE INNOCENT. KILL THEM, IF YOU HAVE TO, IN A WAY THAT DOESN’T FRIGHTEN THEM OR HURT THEM MORE THAN IS ABSOLUTELY NECESSARY. SHOOT THEM IN THE HEAD, OR SUT THEIR CAROTID. China and other countries that enjoy torture on such a scale must have more cruel evil sadists than any civilized county in the world.

    The 10000 animals and most of the tortured to death for a festival!!!
    I understand that most Chinese are not like this but honestly the rest of China needs to step up and tell thies monsters that it is not ok to do this…..shoot the poor dog in the skull first or even a heart puncture would be faster and far more reasonable than trying to inflict as much pain as possible…….it’s no wonder they have a stigma about them…..I mean just look at the hundreds of examples that can be easily found on the Web. …or stories from Chinese that you may know

I have to believe that people who do this to these animals will pay heavily for their sins. They are uneducated, stoic, moronic, heartless, cowardly cockroaches that remind the compassionate beings of this world why we are who we are. They are cowards and they will go to their grave as repulsive cowards. You’re the farthest thing from tough when you gag and bind an innocent animal and torture it. You are swine sent to earth from hell and you will return there for the terror and torture you inflicted…..and so will those in charge who could have stopped it but turned their heads and did NOTHING!

Maybe we can unleash giant predators loose or these murders and let these people be lunch! This has to be stopped, we must do something about this.I feel just like all of you and it’s beyond disturbing and disgusting! Pray for these lost souls without a voice, that the torture will stop. I know I will be praying for these little innocent babies for the next ten days that this horrible event takes place.

    Amazing new update from Marc Ching (The Animal Hope & Wellness) who is in Yulin working nonstop since yesterday on shutting down as many slaughterhouses as he can: We have shut down six slaughterhouses, have five pending, and are on our way to visit a dozen more. To those that thought it was impossible – it is becoming possible. For people who cried and screamed into the night, hope remains. The reality of shutting down a festival where 10,000 dogs die, is that you have thousands of lives that need rescue. We cannot do this alone. I have till tomorrow to save the lives that need saving. The world wanted the festival to end, and we are here trying to end it.This is the time. Do not desert the cause you asked the world to defend. Do not leave us here by ourselves. Do not abandon the mission. Note: For those that want to help rescue these dogs and shutdown Yulin, please donate. animalhopeandwellness.org/donate/ “My foundation is too small to handle the rescue effort alone. So far we have four confirmed shutdowns. With three slaughterhouses pending, and are on our way to the next facility. There will be over a thousand dogs. A thousand lives that need help to find haven. I do not know where to go. I do not know how to find the help we need for the effort.” Note: There are well over four hundred dogs in this one facility. If you want to help support the shutdown, please donate. Spread the good news and stand with Marc in fighting this cause.

    .Dogs are not animals created to be eaten, they are pets who are loyal till the death to humans who kind to them .” The Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him, said, “Allah had once forgiven a prostitute. She passed by a dog panting near a well. Seeing that thirst had nearly killed him, she took off her shoe, tied it to her scarf, and drew up some water. Allah forgave her all sins for that.”.in another narration woman was admitted to hell for not feeding cat and causing it to die .In Islam; kindness and cruelty towards dogs and cats will be your key to either heaven or hell

    This just shows how detached we are as a race to what is really important, preservation of nature and all that is in it, just because this has been going on for hundreds of years does not make it right, if an animal is killed then it should always be done so ethically and with respect. We should all remember thateating animals for food historically would mean live or die, this is still the case today in some areas of the world, but we have such a variety of different foods available in today’s world we need to all think about the preservation of nature and all eat less meat as a whole, let alone kill animals for sport or tradition, the Cinese government should change their ways and put a stop to it!

It is uncomprehensible to see how they can do what they are doing to innocent gifts from God that they steal, cheat and lie just for the pleasure of a meal and money! No life of anything is worth this and as far as I am concerned. I hope they all know someday what it is like to suffer like they have made these precious babies suffer. China is filled with The most selfish freaks! And we best realize as Americans that we are not having this crap. No more dealings with them and boycott all their products. They are nothing without our support and to Hell with them all! To torture a innocent little animal that can’t defend itself is a crime against humanity and a crime against God!

You know they talk about the health risks of these people because they don’t know if the animals have rabies or if they’ve been quarantined or not but honestly these people that are eating these animals I hope that they do get very sick that’s the least that they deserve for doing this to these animals if they get sick they deserve it.

    I will never see China or its people the same way ! Sickened beyond belief. Torturing helpless animals. Of course These chinese feel honored to pick on the weak and helpless, so much so that they create a festival for it. What they are really doing is creating a festival to parade their weakness as real men . Dog meat for impotence after all….. Why is it in these countries where men can hurt the weak that they feel Inflated Egos- slave camps, -prostituting their children -raping torturing women, preying on the weak and helpless who can’t fight back. How could anyone feel some sort of pride in that. Its pathetic. The day will come when they will be on their knees before God who they won’t even be able to look in the eye, and be pronounced their own torture for eternity. Savages with no heart or soul. Disgraceful and the epitome of Evil !!

    People through the ages and right up to current day have performed the most barbaric, cruel torture of animals of all breeds and sizes in the name of ‘culture’ and ‘religion’! It does not make it any less barbaric or evil. I bet all these barbarians don’t do many other things that is in their ‘culture’ or religion because it doesn;t suit them – like stealing, killing each other, raping and and and! Torturing an animal to death because it ‘tastes’ better is utter bullshit! If anything I would think the fear and panic would toughened the animal’s meat. This has to be stopped but of course, most people are just apathetic – if it doesn’t affect them directly or because they are ‘just animals’ they look the other way. ANIMAL LIVES MATTER.

They skin, burn and boil them while they are still alive! I cannot comprehend that and I never ever will. I have a dog and she is my world! They love unconditionally and while we are at our worst. We all need to stand up and put a stop to this barbaric, disgusting, uncivilised act. There is nothing these people don’t eat! Where do we draw the line.

I think that animals, any animal that is eaten should be respected and not tortured. They should not celebrate the killing, but do it in a more private and humane way. There is nothing to celebrate here. I am a meat eater, and in some counties eating what I eat (pork meat for example) is against a religion…however, you don’t see me and my culture celebrating their death or torturing these poor animals who will become our food. I don’t agree with torturing animals of any kind, ever. Either cancel this ridiculous festival, which isn’t festive at all….or find a more decent way to eat your meat!!!

    The world truly sees the animal cruelty at dog / cat meat festivals in China as disgusting as well as casts a VERY negative light on Chinese culture. China is a very beautiful country as the World saw at the Beijing Olympics, but the brutality and torture on companion animals such as Dogs and Cats ( who have been bred for thousands of years to be human companions ), this inhumane treatment by “dog meat traders” casts the entire Chinese culture and thousands of years of culture as backwards, uncultured and Uncivilized. I urge ALL Chinese citizens to fight to preserve your beautiful country’s image to the rest of the world by seeking to END animal brutality on defenseless companion animals as well as to join the rest of the civilized world by ending these ” meat festivals ” – which equate to WW2 concentration camps for animals. Please join and support Chinese Animal Rights activists to fight for the protection of China’s international reputation.

  114. I don’t want to go into ruptures, or get aggressive on this issue, cause if I did there would be no stopping me, I ask you just one question — What is it you see when you look at a Dog ———-
    Just a dog, a four legged creature, some sweet, some not so sweet, some calm , some aggressive whatever, whatever—- Now what does your DOG see when she sees YOU, looks at YOU———— Believe me They see their entire Universe — You are their Whole World — the very center of their existence — they cannot open the fridge to get a drink of water — of get fed — we have done them the greatest dis-service by Domesticating them and making them so dependent on US — and we kill them — for experimentation, medicinal, sexual, meat and other illogical excuses.

This is not Tradition. Tradition is something to be proud of and is sustained and repeated because of the beauty it brings the soul. There is only beauty in the eyes of those God Given Dogs and Cats who look out into the world and Cry for all to see so this can finally come to an end and the lives that have been lost be not in vain.

      Not exactly. The people of Yulin believe that the more pain an animal experiences before death, the better the meat will taste. They purposely torture and abuse these animals – many stolen family pets and strays snatched from the streets – and subject them to unthinkable acts of cruelty. The issue is less about which animal they choose to eat and more about the senseless torture and unethical sourcing of those animals.

    I am a vegan and i refuse to consume animals so that my part of causing any animals has been ruled out. I believe we know little about what happens to any animals when they are farmed/slaughtered and all eating of any other beings when we have evolved not to have to do that, is wrong. Our world is screwed up, but these people who do this, their world is more than screwed up. If there is a hell, they will be going, i aren’t religious, but i hope there is so they do.

    I am a petition signer the whole nine yards.Really people I think we have here a cultural thing in certain areas in China.But why so medieval?That’s the only way I can sum it up.I live in South Africa.Now what must I say?Are certain cultures here also perhaps still in the Dark Ages?Why boil or burn an animal still alive?That must be a psycopath who does a thing like that.The Bible says:”The righteous takes care of their animals,but even the compassion of the wicked is cruel.”I guess this is not wickedness,but pure evil.But many countries are so evil.But I think we must not generalise,but heavens shoot the poor animals then in the head to death.That will even be more merciful.Why act like you live in 915 instead of 2015?I fully understand that their must be some regulations in place.Sorry,but even here in South Africa they are showing this now.Now in SA cruel things happen to animals,but we still have laws and regulations and people do get punished.

    I am in full support of all animal rights laws and am as disgusted by these pictures and the video as many of you are. However, please do not assume that every Chinese person would gladly torture and kill an animal. I have a 3 month old German Shepherd mix my family and I rescued from a high kill shelter and believe me when I say she is the pride and joy of our lives.

    Disgusting people like these shown horrify me.

    But, I am also sick of all Asian people being thought of as cruel, callous dog murderers. Only a small portion of us actually kill and eat dogs. Please think and use your brain before posting such an ignorant, bigoted, offensive comment about how “all Asians deserve to die” because a very small amount of us eat dogs.

    These people are satanic heathens. They are going straight to hell. Then they will feel the pain that they put these animals through. Over and Over and Over again, I hope. And yes, we eat cows and pigs and chickens and yes, some of the slaughter houses don’t do their due diligence by following the kill procedures. But, I believe that here in the United States, we have advocates working to keep companies in line. I know that cows and pigs and chickens are looked at as commodities. I’ve seen videos of these animals being treated inhumanely. It’s awful. The dog eating festival in Yulin would still be horrifying, but if they would at least be more humane by using injections and not stealing pets. In the United States we feed our population with meat, but in China, this is not keeping people from starving. It’s a barbaric and sick and evil tradition for no good reason. Gpd is merciful, but somehow, I think His justice on these people will not be merciful.

But u…look at u! You kill the best man’s friend,daily,with no regret!So what..u have a german shepherd…why not a simply stray dog!??! Which is more faithfull and caring and gentle?!? It’s that a brand or what!??! Well I have 3 stray dogs I met in the street,no breed,no pedigrees,just 3 souls,beautifull dogs,tall and handsome (2 black and one “multicoloured” haha) and 1 black cat,also stray(european as vet said) and I blame people who care more about the breed then the dog itself…so your comment is irrelevant!So yea..not of all is abusive against animals but the majority it is and it’s a fact,no matter how hard u try to deny i!Peace man and respect dogs!

      People like you disgust me. I am Chinese-American and I have a German Shepherd puppy whom I rescued from a high kill shelter. To say that all Chinese people (me included) are raging puppy butchers is to say that all Russians drink vodka 24/7 or that all Americans go to McDonalds for every meal and are obese. Instead of blatantly spreading racist hate and calling my people “low life freaks”, maybe you should actually get up from your couch and do something, such as sign a petition to stop this slaughter from occurring. Calling an entire group of people “disgusting, immoral, inferior bastards” doesn’t fix this callous torture. What you and other like minded people should do is to protest this from occurring instead of hiding behind a computer screen and spewing out your own narrow minded views.

    • DOG LOVER – no, this is not a prime example of why most of the population HATE the majority of chinese people. The prime examples include an affinity for ethnocentric values of the western culture and outright racism – you know, the feeling of hatred that is generated when one cannot accept the differences between one ethnic or racial group to another. The issue isn’t a “Chinese” one – it’s a matter of being a decent human being and having respect for all of God’s creation.

    The problem is that these people have no concept of a conscious over how an animal should be treated. If you are going to kill something, treat it well while it is alive and kill it quickly and kindly. Their lives are not in your hands by choice and it is your responsibility to end it as painlessly as possible. Taking a life is not a right, it’s a privilege.

    That being said, the more horrifying part is that a lot of the animals are stolen pets if not strays and may have diseases, been poisoned, drugged, or have medications in their bodies. People who eat dog meat are not only eating uncertain meat but eating meat that may be poisoning them. If they have no thoughts about their own health they should at least have a conscience about the poor families who had their pets stolen.

    They don’t. I had a Taiwanese friend whose neighbours stole and skinned her pet dog alive in the yard when she was 5. By the time she came home from school they had already started. I don’t understand why anyone would think this is acceptable.

    China needs to enter the modern age with all its heart and be honest with the world about what is going on. I am ashamed to be Chinese. If a dog thief came to take my dogs, I might as well kill them myself to save them from suffering.

    You see it is not just the horror we feel seeing domesticated animals, pets, tortured and killed in the most atrocious ways that hurts so much. It is that the relationship of trust between man and dog goes back hundreds of thousands of years when men and dogs bonded to track the same animals both ate for food. Over such a long period of time, the dog became a part of the family of man, not an animal outsider. So these kinds of ritual killings of our family members is that much more telling and hurtful to us. It is not a cultural difference. It is plain inhumane and inhuman.

    Burning and skinning them alive, what the actual F.

    No animal deserves that, and these piece of crap people need to pay. That’s not tradition, the ability to do that to an animal that has been raised in a family with love then stolen and tortured for some piece of crap society’s “festival” is psychotic behaviour.

    For anyone that condones this, I hope you rot. There is no way you can say this is proper treatment. You want to eat a dog that’s been burned alive and tortured? You should be charged with cruelty.

    I am an avid hunter and I also run an angus farm with my family I am no stanger to seeing things others wouldnt want to but I saw images of this festival ,and almost cried. Anyone who can kill dogs and cats is a psycopath by definition this festival needs to be stopped especcially because a lot of the meat consumed during this festival is from stolen pets , and if someone took my dogs or my cat they wouldn’t walk away from my house.

Do these animals not feel pain do they not have emotions!! Stop this now its a crime in my book !! I hate these people for doing this and I don’t care about their traditions!! STOP THIS!!!!

    No matter what culture you are from, or what animals you chose to eat – being able to kill an animal in the ways I see they do at the Yulin Festival makes you a psychopath. It cannot be made okay because it’s your tradition. This is torture and the worst animal cruelty possible. Anyone who supports some of the ways these animals are being killed is a complete maniac. You do have the right to eat whatever meat you want, regardless of other peoples wishes. But if you must take a life – do so quickly and as painlessly as possible! Anyone who supports the killing of dogs in this fashion (boiling alive, blow torching alive, dismembering alive, skinning alive etc.) have no argument. It takes sick people to be able to do that to a living thing who is visibly suffering and in pain and wants you to stop desperately. I can’t wrap my mind around any other view.

You people who actively tourture these dogs will have to answer for these barbaric acts of evil someday. I can’t even fathom the thought of eating a dog or cat even if I were desperate for food. Much less brutally kill one just to satisfy my taste buds. No animal should have to suffer like this by the hands of a human being. This world is really evil and it saddens me to no end.

    As horrible and barbaric as this festival is, if the people of the United States knew what their own government agencies are doing to animals in this country, they would not be so quick to condemn China. The US Fish & Wildlife Services kills millions of animals yearly; some family pets included. The Bureau of Land Management is responsible for the deaths of many wild animals including horses, burros, buffalo, wolves, coyotes, bobcats and others. And sadly, it is our tax dollars funding the killing. I find both countries at fault for allowing these atrocities to continue.

    Eating dogs and cats is not the main reason the rest of the world is appalled at China. It is the wide spread sadistic cruelty that is used in ending these animals lives. They could easily stun the dogs but no…….. they need to skin and boil them alive.
    It is common knowledge that you could shave an Angora rabbit to obtain its fur, just like shaving a mans head. Unpleasant and frightening for the animal of course. However for some bizzare reason the Chinese have to RIP the fur out in handfuls…. why !!!! so they can hear the rabbit scream???
    Don’t get me started on Bear bile and ground up tigers to give them “unbelievable sexual powers” Seriously …….Whats wrong with Viagra…?????? It has been around for years and can be bought easily online.
    They seem to get some kind of sick enjoyment out of inflicting the worst type of misery on other living things .
    They might have advanced technology and a thriving economy but every time you face a Chinese person in a business meeting you are remembering the horrors of the videos that now dominate the internet.
    They are not an educated people and have always lagged behind as the rest of the world evolved . If there are Chinese people out there who are against all these prehistoric practices against the animal world then they are keeping very quiet…..
    You are only safe in China if you are a Panda…..

  246. China is one of many country’s I would never ever consider visiting purely because of their sadistic treatment of their animals , is there nothing that these people will not eat ,sadley it seems anything with legs is edible to the Chinese alive or dead . I am amazed they don’t eat eachother perhaps that will be next , the annual dog and cat meat festival in yulin the slaughter men , the people who buy it the people who eat it you are all foul sadistic barbaric subhuman scum , I just hope and pray that one day you suffer eternal pain and torment for what you have done .

      Are you serious. Culture does not warrant the purposeful torture of thousands of animals. Our slaughterhouses are not even in the same range as this cruelty. It is not the killing that is upsetting. If it was done correctly, and quickly/as painlessly as possible, I would be less angry. However, they are essentially tortured. In none of our slaughterhouses do we literally have animals piled on top of each other in LAYERS in cages, nor do they kill them or beat them so barbarically. Not only that, but did you even watch the video?? They are often PETS TAKEN FROM FAMILIES… do we have any slaughterhouses that do that? If you do any additional research, they do horrific things, such as ELECTROCUTE, burn the dogs with BLOWTORCHES, and other stuff. Out slaughterhouses and this festival are incomparable.

      Suki, how can you say you are not against torturing terrified dogs (and cats); animals that are sentient beings and share our emotions, such as fear and joy, pain and pleasure. The look on the faces of dogs and cats is one of despair, just as we would look if we were in their place. How CAN you say you are not against this? Why compare this with the slaughter of cows? I don’t eat meat or dairy products, but the point is that one should never excuse an atrocity simply because another atrocity exists somewhere else. We should be condemning all cruelty, not excusing it.

      Unfortunately, there is so much cruelty in the world, it is impossible to tackle it all at once. I am a New Zealander and we protest cruelty in our country, such as the recent shipment of 53,000 animals to Mexico, the chaining of dogs, the killing of feral cats, the testing of products on animals, cruel rodeos, hunting, etc. etc. We have Chinese immigrants here, some of whom join in the protests and demonstrations, some are members of local animal rights groups here. My point is, if you are a compassionate person, any cruelty anywhere should concern you. Culture, tradition, or religion are not reasons to excuse cruelty, for it is a human failing to find pleasure in the pain of another being; psychologists call that psycopathy! Find your moral consciousness and cultivate it and take another look at the way cats and dogs are tortured in your country.

      The Chinese government has been sitting on an animal welfare bill that was drafted in 2009, don’t you think it’s time your government passed this bill into law? Don’t look to other countries for cases of animal cruelty in order to excuse what is happening in your own country. We should be protesting all forms of cruelty and protecting all animals, human or non-human. It is extreme cowardice to torture a terrified animal and you should not be condoning such inhuman behaviour.

      We all think people who torture animals to death are cowardly psychopaths, sick bastards, of course, but they can be of any race. If your government and previous governments had failed to protect animals with legislation, there would be plenty of cowardly psychopaths emerging to behave badly! In every society there are sick bastards, but they’re usually too afraid to indulge their sadistic side for fear of the law. You have to admit, now and again someone commits a sickening atrocity on an animal and the law gives them with what most of us consider to be a pathetic ‘punishment’. The same sick bastards usually abuse their wives and children too, proving that animal abusers are also people abusers, or just plain sick cowardly bastards!

      The Chinese government should be sorting out the draft animal welfare legislation and passing into law, for it has been ‘sitting’ on this now for over six years. They say you get the government you deserve and there’s probably a lot of truth in that, in democratic countries! China is not a democratic country and the people have no say in who should govern them and what laws should be enacted. I think it’s time China became a democracy and allowed good citizens to stand for election, but that’s another issue. In the meantime, we should all be writing, emailing, tweeting and fb’ing the Chinese politicians, asking them to pass the animal welfare bill into law. That would be a good start, followed by ensuring the law was enforced and those who ignored it being punished.

      We have a lot of Chinese immigrants here in Auckland, New Zealand – many of them have pets, help as volunteers in animal shelters, protest animal cruelty and some are animal rights activists. We also have a lot of New Zealanders who regularly break the law by abusing animals, beating their wives, sometimes beat their kids to death – same sort of people, sick bastards. Don’t call us all sick bastards though, for the rest of us are OK….

Im not a “Sick Bastard” and yes some products in China are bad but where do you think your phone was made, most likely China and is that “Shity”? Probably not. Western ways and Easterns/ Asian ways are different, we do different things and if you don’t like Eastern/ Asian ways then maybe do something about like it said in the article “In 2011, a similar festival in the Zhejiang province of China was cancelled due to public outcry and a massive internet petition.” So instead of sitting here and saying Chinese people are “Sick Bastards” you could start a internet petition theres nothing stopping you. So like I said before I don’t agree with this matter and I don’t like what they are doing but that doesn’t give you a reason to say terrible things about all Chinese people.

    Protest against the sheer horror of such habits and ‘festivals’ ought to be come from institutions and people in authority most of all. Putting planes at the disposal of animal welfare members and activists , and protest on the spot in Yulin – or wherever the slaughter is allowed to continue – might be a first step! We live on planet earth here, not planet hell!

      No government in the world is capable of perfect control towards 1.35 billion people. The Government of China are fining, imprisoning, arresting, but there are always cases out of their grasp. Just like drugs, heroin is illegal in all countries, but there are still heroin abusers. Well then, how did that happen?

      Don’t blame the race. Don’t accuse them of being Chinese, there are cruel people in every race. Just because if a person is born a particular race, doesn’t mean they support another’s barbaric ideas, just because they are linked in race. The Government of China are trying hard, fining and jailing, but a government cannot control a population of 1.35 billion without incidents like these from occurring. Easy to say that you will never purchase another thing made in China. If you believe that “they are not fit to be a member of the world community” then damn, your thinking is really simplistic and naive.

THERE IS ALSO ONE ISSUE WHICH WAS RAISED IN THIS ARTICLE, WHICH NEVER FAILS TO ANGER ME, NAMELY -AND I QUOTE: “there are no quarantine systems in place to monitor the health of the animals, thereby raising additional concerns of safety to Yulin residents that partake in the festival.” WELL ALL I CAN SAY TO THIS IS THAT I PERSONALLY DON’T GIVE A DAMN IF THEY _ALL_ DROP DEAD! EVERY SINGLE ONE OF THEM THAT “PARTAKE IN THE FESTIVAL” WHY SHOULD WE BE CONCERNED FOR THE YULIN RESIDENTS SAFETY WHEN THEY BELONG BACK IN THE DARK AGES WITH THEIR BARBARIC MEDIEVAL PRACTICES.

      Dianna, I know exactly how you feel in regards to the health and rabies issue. If these participants become ill or die who cares, right? However, I believe protestors are trying to use that issue as a way to get through to the Chinese, as the cruelty/inhumane aspect doesn’t seem to affect them. The Chinese (not ALL I realize) have proven themselves time and again to be barbaric and without compassion (who needs rhinos or tigers anyway?), so if using this fact, that this practice puts their health at risk, to convince them to stop this horror show, so be it. Hopefully the compassion will eventually follow.

Everyone who loves dogs and cats needs to jump in and do whatever they can to help add to that fight. With enough political pressure, any government (no matter how corrupt), will cave. I’ll make a pledge to the embassy that I will not purchase anything made in China (and yes, I’ll be checking) until the DOG AND CAT MEAT TRADE ends completely – starting with the end of this DISGUSTING festival. As a species, we have ended many inhumane “traditions” because so many of us want to see a brighter future for all life on this planet. THIS HAS TO END – who wants to join this fight with me?
      For all the animals who love and trust us unconditionally, we MUST do whatever it takes to protect them!

      Apart from the fact that dogs are domesticated as pets (not lifestock) and whether it’s acceptable or not to eat dogs, the most upsetting thing is the way the dogs are treated.There’s absolutely no excuse for that. The dogs are put in overcrowded cages for transport, don’t have access to water of food. They are obviously in pain and suffering. There’s video footage of dogs being dragged alongside motorcycles, clearly exhausted and suffering. Some of the dogs are simply stolen from their owner, imagine how they must be feeling. The dogs are in no way humanely killed, but often skinned or burned alive. The dogs are being tortured, so that does make it OUR business. The world should give a clear signal that this is absolutely not acceptable behaviour. No animal should be treated like this, dog or cow or turkey.
      And if people need to mind their own business, what if some people decide to eat humans? After all humans are no different than any other animal – except for their filthy, destructive behavior, guess who’s responsible for the mass extinction of species,the destruction of our environment, global deforestation, air and water pollution, oceans full of plastic, nuclear waste and so on?

      Now to me, a “dog”, an animal, is also a living BEING, and only a living BEING will notice another living BEING unjustly abused, tortured, killed as unacceptable to standards of life for life’s sake. See? Human nature is not all we have, just as human is not all we are.

It needn’t be for people in America only : the entire world is watching, and isn’t necessarily on your side. We no longer live in the Middle Ages after all. True for China, and every other part of the world where animal abuse takes place!

    • We are on a small rock spinning in space and we are all HUMAN, regardless of our geographical distances. Its time to start calling each-other OUT on behavior that CAN CHANGE if ENOUGH PEOPLE grew up with kindness in their hearts for animals rather than perpetuating barbaric, savage, cruel practices in a modern world. Stop defending cruelty and maybe start giving a sh*t about it, and we could evolve as a species before cannibalize the planet and each-other. Cynical prick.

      You couldn’t be more wrong. The whole world is guilty of inflicting pain on animals for people’s consumption, but most countries attempt to have regulations in place for the treatment of the animals. The Yulin, Guangxi’s annual dog slaughter has no regard for the pain inflicted on the dogs. Boiling, burning and bludgeoning dogs to death causes agonizing pain to these creatures–regardless of their destructive habits. Don’t these villagers have a conscience?

In medieval days , when humans were not cultivated grains, rice and vegetables, they hunted animals and ate for survival. In this 22 century also, people does inhuman activities for filling their bellies. God gave us nature, trees and plants for survival ,we can’t kill our fellow animals in a henious manner which is a sin. Animal lovers , nature lovers must educate human beings of this world in social net working sites to practice vegetarian food and shun eating meat of any animal.In India , mostly now a days practice vegetarian food.

It’s just about the worst possibal thing you could do to a living animal. And STOLEN pets? Imagine eating your precious animal! I bet they just jump the fence and steal the animal. Then the child walks out,”Mommy! Daddy! Puppy is gone!” Then you hear the father,” Hmm this festival sounds good. Let’s go!” Then the child has to consume his pet.

        Shut the hell up Reality Bytes. You’re an ignorant fuck if you actually believe that a cow is the same as a dog. Have you heard of a cow saving a drowning child? Have you heard of a seeing eye chicken? Have you heard of a pig saving a family from a burglar? Dogs are domesticated animals. They are used for therapy for sick children. I’ve also heard of doctors suggesting a dog to help with depression. They are meant to be our companions and best friend in this horrible world. They bring love and joy to a family home. They were NOT created to be food. Look at the size of a cow or a pig. They were created for our survival. Chickens have tiny paws, the rest of their body is meat. Dogs are mainly skin and bones. They don’t have a enough meat on them to feed a huge family. I wish people would shut up and STOP saying dogs are the same as any other animal.

        Eating cats and dogs is wrong, disgusting, and a health risk. These poor fur babies are tortured and killed in inhumane ways. It’s also been scientifically proven that dogs are similar to humans. If you’re okay eating a dog than you must condone eating people as well. People like you Reality Bytes is exactly why I like dogs more than people. Calling people cunts also proves you’re an ignorant fuck. This cruelty in China has to stop. I have signed online petitions, donated money to the cause and hope others who have love and compassion in their hearts will do the same.

    If the people that embrace this festival think it’s so normal to inflict torture onto dogs, I say they sign up for the same exact treatment. Why don’t they get beaten to a pulp for extended periods of time while their buddies watch in horror and wait for their turn and then get skinned and boiled alive while everyone stands around laughing and joking. You know, it may just be possible that karma will turn them into these dogs when they are reincarnated. Culture as an excuse for torture is a joke. Sadly, these dogs get worse treatment than factory farmed animals which needs major improvement as well. However, I have to say that the dog meat industry is BY FAR, the most deplorable, demonic, sadistic, and torturous treatment of sentient beings that I have ever witnessed. It is extremely difficult to respect people who laugh while they torture animals. These cowards couldn’t endure the pain they put these helpless creatures through for one minute yet they laugh and defend it as culture. We’d have a bunch of screaming, crying, terrified “victims” on our hands if this happened to them yet it’s perfectly fine to torture these innocent animals. They are a bunch of cowards with no moral conscience.

    I mean, dogs are probably more intelligent, but you can’t just tell Chinese people that they have to stop eating dogs.
    However, I think (and that’s not just for the dogs) that they should be slaughtered in a humane way. Immediate death, no pain, no torture. And no using the dead bodies for fun afterwards, these were alive animals, you cant just use their dead bodies to hang next to your door as some weird decoration.

      No, cannibalism and head shrinking were traditions so that argument is meaningless. What matters is not even the choice of food which is just a difference of cultures. Deliberate, sustained cruelty, however, systematically imposed with the intention of inflicting the greatest suffering, whether towards animals or people cannot be excused. I repeat, towards animals or people. I get so tired of people who excuse being a sick sadistic moron on the grounds that anyone who objects should only spend their energy caring about humans. We should treat both with humanity. At Yulin and in the dog and cat meat trade generally, they don’t know the meaning of the word.

        Whoever told you “God created dogs” is delusional. God did not create dogs, they were created by man from wolves. God, or nature, created animals to live in harmony in a natural ecosystem, dogs are the sadistic serial killers and mass murderers of the animal kingdom. Unlike the wolves from which dogs are descended that kill only for food or out of fear, dogs chase down and kill other animals solely for the fun of chasing and killing and, as such, have no place in the natural order of things. Anyone who loves dogs, hates natures. Additionally, unlike natural creatures, dogs have filthy, disgusting habits. For example, dogs are the only mammals on earth besides pigs and rats that eat human excrement and even pigs and rats won’t eat it unless they’re starving, but dogs lap it up like ice cream. If you want to know what God thinks of dogs, read Rev. 22:15.

    • I know my dog was taken by a neighbor and I went over there to get her and they said Oh she is so beautiful “Do you want to sell her?” NO NO NO was the answer!!! Then I had an emergency and my Ex was to take care of her and her daughter, my two babies, I was 200 miles away and my EX calls I’m sorry I can’t find Bambi, OMG I was home as quick as I could. I searched everywhere I went down alleys and went into abandoned homes and ran into some real thugs! But guess what, even these drug dealing thugs have more heart than those bastards in China, They dropped everything and started helping in my search! This neighbor had her but wouldn’t answer, I had a pic of my dog and one of the guys climbed up on the back fence which was all straight boards and said “I see her, she’s in the corner cowering and about 8 other dogs all around her in the hot sun!!!” I actually went to the front and almost drove my car thru, I started yelling and honking and telling them I was about ready to call the police! Suddenly a man comes out holding my baby by the back of her neck “Here here she is, I was going to bring her to you!!” I told him “Yah right, if ever you take her again you will be the sorriest person in this world” and with these gang members standing behind me he never took her again!!!! My baby was so shook up “fighting the other dogs and her little paws all burnt, I cleaned her and actually carried her for 3 days until she finally could walk again” So I never buy anything anymore that says “MADE IN CHINA” I will never go there and they all should have a taste of their own medicine!!!

    And what about the slaughter of pigs, cows, and chickens? Why are dogs sacrosanct but not pigs? Americans are hypocritical to think that their affections for SOME animals are some how equivalent to a kind of ‘animal rights’.

    If you really want to stop the slaughter of emotional being like dogs, go vegetarian! Otherwise, you’re a hypocrite.

      These are STOLEN PETS… there is a big difference here. Cows,pigs,etc are raised to feed humans. AND if the farm/company is following the law then these animals are not tortured. Some of these dogs had families.

        remember everyday in all the world all animals being butchered , killed, going extinct, the chinese are now moving into usa in droves, I dislike these celebrations of death, in usa daily millions of animals killed in slaughterhouses, pounds, etc etc, war, cruelty, people killing each other— this is a beautiful planet and man is the worse creature on it, the history of man on earth is one of endless brutality and war and killing,
        these celebrations of ritual death are sick! poor dogs and cats been used in labs and other cruel forms of torture, koreans eat each other, chinese eat anything they bred like rats and even eat rats, there’s billions of them
        and u better hope they don’t turn on you! very cruel culture just study their history they killed each other by the friging millions!
        i hope they choke

      You make a good point Jason. While I’m definitely an animal lover, I love steak way too much to become a vegitarian. I do, however, make sure that any animal products I consume were raised/killed in safe and ethical ways. I eat cage-free eggs/chicken products. The beef I eat is from private farms where the cows are not raised in mud-pits but in open pastures. When they are killed, I know they are not tortured and no one gets enjoyment or celebrates their death as the people of Yulin appear to do during their festival.

      You can be in support of the ethical treatment of animals (ie: not torturing them, skinning them alive, etc) and still consume them. That to me is not being hypocritical.

        Well said. I agree completely. The traditional eating of dogs is one thing. The stealing of family pets, torturing the animals to death, and no regulations regarding health is immoral, unethical and places the entire planet in danger of a pandemic.

        • So true!! I could not even imagine the pain these poor animals feel physically and mentally! I know my Dogs and I do scold them, but never ever lay a finger on them and they are the most loyal, protecting and loving pets ever. When ever I go to an appt. I have to tell them and assure them I will be back. When I return they actually wait quietly for me to come in and be settled and then my German Shep actually stands up and throws those huge paws around me. The other dog a chihuahua patiently waits for me to pick her up. If I leave in a hurry and don’t tell them, when I come home they actually cry and try to get to me as soon as I open the door. So I know they are wondering as they wait to be killed so horribly and they see the other ones go thru hell as they die so painfully that “WHY, what did I do to deserve this?” So So Sad!!!!!!

        You’re still an hypocrite. Or do you think all those dead bodies you ingested during your lifetime wanted to be killed. Meat is murder. And who says a pig or cow is less worth than a dog. And eating meat is disastrous for the planet. It takes ten times more space and energy to produce meat than plant food. By eating meat you are killing sentient beings, destroying the environment and make food in general more expensive, thus poor people have to suffer hunger just because some like to eat dead bodies. You’re more hypocrite actually than the Chinese. At least, they don’t glorify and make some animals holy. If you really want to set an example and stop what the chinese are doing with animals in general, stop being an hypocrite and be vegan/vegetarian. Otherwise you’re just a clown in their eyes “oh, those poor pooches… Now let’s have some dead cow for dinner”

      I agree with you Jason. I love dogs, but all animals are animals.
      We have to also consider this practice as a cultural difference and should not condemn the traditional aspect of it. Sanitation is a problem and public slaughter should be done away with. Anthropologically, people should consider to not be biased towards different cultural practices. In North America we kill and eat many different animals, while other places kill and eat horse, cat, and baby animals.

      It is a very difficult thing to not challenge especially when one aspect of our culture prizes and loves a particular aspect such as dogs.

      Jason…..while I understand what you are sating…..as stated before, the majority of these dogs are stolen…..I personally have adopted a Meat Trade Dog – who is 11 years old – had a collar on him when the smugglers stole him from his home…He will be with me in 10 days….I have waited 3 months for him to arrive from Thailand to the US And yes, many are strays…but the point is….why beat and torture these animals, skin them alive, throw them into boiling vats of water still alive, as they try to crawl out….so basically I see see where you are sympathetic to this uncalled for cruelty…..and if you support this – then you are the hypocrite! How many petitions have you signed to stop any of this – even with cows, pigs…chickens? I have signed all of them….I feel you actually don’t care about any of the animals, as I don;t see any compassion in your statement….so don’t judge others for their compassion when it comes to utter abuse and cruelty. Do you have a dog or a cat? If you do…hold them close and be thankful they are not going to be someone’s meal!

      Who says people aren’t doing this? I am. I am sad for every animal that is hurt, tortured, killed, eaten, etc. I even say a small prayer in my head when I notice that I’ve stepped on an ant, or have to kill a flea in order to keep my pets and my family safer – no bites, worms, etc. So, you’re not alone.

        Jason is 100% correct!! YOU ARE A HYPOCRITE if you believe that the murder of one animal is any different than the next. China eats dog/cat meat the same way Americans eat cow/chicken meat, so what is the difference? Please explain!

        If it makes you feel better that you consume murdered animals by saying that it is not the same because the dogs in China are ‘stolen’… that’s pure BS! There is NO WAY that they are ALL stolen and would this act be acceptable to you if they were ‘free range’ dogs or raised on ‘organic feed’???

        I can say that I AM a TRUE animal lover because I use/consume NOTHING that contains any ingredient that comes from ANY animal, that is a TRUE animal lover. You ‘love steak’ too much to become vegetarian but you use ‘organic’ products? Why waste your money saving animals in lab studies and all the while slaughter a cow for your steak? Makes no logical sense!

        For those that want to know where these ‘free range’ ‘no antibiotic use’ atmospheres are that you pay extra money for at your local grocer… check out the undercover videos that PETA.ORG has on their website and after you watch one of the videos and see the barbaric acts of neglect/torture/rape/abuse/murder that these animals suffer tell me if you are still able to enjoy your steak so much! Anyone with an ounce of compassion would find it impossible. If you cannot stomach the videos then read about how farm animals are riddled with diseases of the flesh/organs and are pumped full of antibiotics to keep them alive, antibiotics that the meat eater then consumes… or how chickens are injected with growth hormones so often to be mass produced that their legs do not grow as fast as their bodies and they cannot support their own weight!

        DO NOT tell people you are an animal lover when you are cooking your steak on the grill or washing your hair with products that have blinded rabbits.

        No, I am not being self righteous here… I am making a point! I am sharing my deep empathy/compassion for ALL animals!

      This is right up there with Aztecs sacrificing humans! Dogs are man’s Best friend Not “What’s For Dinner?” This is a worldwide outrage under the guise of cultural event. This needs to Stop NOW! We are to be caretakers of animals not cannibals! There is absolutely despicable and cruel to these pets.
      The Aztec culture collapsed from the inside out and so will China if they continue with their cruelty. The Whole world needs to Stop this inhumane practice.
