Yulin Dog Meat Eating Festival 2016

Stephen Wiggins Article, Petition 2 Comments


For the Yulin dog meat festival, dogs are stolen from their owners, then beaten or bled to death. They’re hung upside down from hooks, a slit cut from their anus and skin ripped off their bodies, then sold to be eaten” – Avaaz 

Much of the world sees dogs as their trusted companions, but in parts of Asia they suffer terribly as victims of the trade in dog meat for human consumption” – Humane Society International

The forthcoming Yulin “Dog-meat” Eating Festival is one such event where mankind’s once “trusted companions” are killed for human consumption. Dogs and cats are inhumanely bred/stolen, transported in cramped and inhumane conditions, the animals are then brutally killed at the festival by humans lacking any compassion. It is estimated between 10,000 and 15,000 dogs (and cats) suffer this fate during the 10 day festival.

Protest March against Yulin dog and cat meat Festival London

Please help to protest this abuse in London, Friday, 24 June 2016, 12:00 – 17:00 hours – Embassy of China, London, 49 Portland Place, W1B 1 London, United Kingdom.



The Yulin festival has no traditional, or historic roots in Chinese culture. It is purely a cruel, barbaric animal exploitative money making enterprise dreamt up to increase attention for the city of Yulin.

Around 1995, Yulin, a city in south-west China’s Guangxi province created the festival to boost the local economy. To promote the importance of the festival, they claimed that they were honouring China’s long history of eating Dog. What they never envisioned was the worldwide debate and subsequent condemnation for their money making scheme” – Wildlife Planet.net 

Even ‘traditional’ animal killing festivals can be halted as recently witnessed in Nepal.

So, the protests against “Yulin” begin once more and the attention craved by the creation of the ‘festival’ has indeed been turned against Yulin; thus tarnishing the whole of China with yet more world-wide condemnation of China’s on-going animal abuse.

Protests are taking place against the dog meat trade in China

“Chinese People Say No to Dog Meat Trade!!!”

May 14, Dalian China: A government organized annual event was used by animal activists to speak against the country’s notorious dog meat industry. More than 100,000 people and hundreds of dogs in Northeast China’s Dalian attended the event. VShine, Humane Society International (HSI) partner group in China, gathered 300 volunteers with their dogs at the event. The banner they displayed and read “Legislate Animal Protection; Punish Dog Theft; Outlaw Dog Meat Trade” was a call for the authorities to listen to the overwhelming public opinion against the dog meat industry. This is the third year that HSI assisted Vshine’s participation in this widely publicized rally – Source: Peter J. Li
