 - Please sign the petition to stop the annual Yulin Dog Meat festival in China.

This medieval way of treating animals sits at complete odds with how China has progressed as a society in recent years.  This is not about cultural differences this is about the most basic of ethics and about treating animals with compassion. It’s plain to see that the practices carried out at Yulin represent a new low for China.

Those animals we choose to be our working companions, our eyes when we are blind, our guardians of the family home, to share our food and to be our best friends for hundreds of years are suffering and are being slaughtered in the most monstrous of ways. There are many videos on YouTube to evidence this, although they are not easy to watch. Despite how you feel about eating any animal, no living, sentient being should be abused or tortured for any reason, and no right-minded person can rationally argue otherwise.  Dogs and cats suffer unspeakable horrors at the hands of farmers, traders and butchers – beaten, torched with fire, boiled alive, etc.  Not all these animals are “farmed” – many are beloved, stolen pets. 

The medieval treatment of companion animals in Yulin provides a cruel contrast to the slick, sophisticated, modern image that China tries so hard to portray to the outside world.
