Call for Action: Please Shut Down the Yulin Dog Meat Festival

We have learned that Yulin is preparing to go forward with the Dog Meat Festival June 21-30, despite the Chinese Ministry of Agriculture’s regulations that bans commercial dog and cat meat trade that came out on May 29.

Please take actions today to urge Chinese Government to shut down the Yulin Dog Meat Festival immediately.

Please Shut Down the Illegal Yulin Dog Meat Festival

We were very happy to hear that the Chinese Ministry of Agriculture has banned the commercial Dog and Cat Meat Trade. On May 29, 2020, the Chinese Ministry of Agriculture released the latest version of the Directory of Genetic Resources of Livestock and Poultry. Dogs and cats are not on the list of animals that can be bred, raised, traded, or transported as livestock for commercial purposes, meaning that the commercial dog and cat meat trade is no longer legal in China. Please see Update: Chinese Ministry of Agriculture Bans Commercial Dog and Cat Meat – Focus Shifts to Enforcement: https://citywatchla.com/index.php/cw/los-angeles/19882-update-chinese-ministry-of-agriculture-bans-commercial-dog-and-cat-meat-focus-shifts-to-enforcement

In April, the cities of Shenzhen and Zhuhai became the first in China to completely ban the consumption of dog and cat meat. Please see https://www.citywatchla.com/index.php/cw/los-angeles/19559-chinese-city-of-shenzhen-bans-eating-dog-and-cat-meat

However, we have learned that there is evidence that organizers of the Yulin Dog Meat Festival are preparing to go forward with the festival from June 21 to 30. As well as being a horrible cruelty for dogs, subjecting the City of Yulin to international condemnation, the festival should now be illegal under the Agriculture Ministry’s new regulations. We strongly urge the Chinese authorities to enforce the new regulations and shut down the Yulin Dog Meat Festival immediately.

Our thanks goes out to Mr. Jeffrey Mausner of the Valley Alliance of Neighborhood Councils Liaison to the Los Angeles Animal Services Department for the articles mentioned above and drafting suggested protest message to the Chinese government.

    This activity and the individuals who take part have no place in modern China and those that take part are breaking the law.
    Please China uphold your laws and stop the cruelty.

    If the law prohibiting the dog & cat meat trade is not going to be enforced to prevent the Yulin Dog Meat Festival, it is sheer hypocrisy to pretend that the law is other than a cosmetic exercise. The permitted suffering of sentient creatures in this vile trade is one which shames the Chinese people.

    NO TO THE WILD YULIN FESTIVAL, NO TO EATING DOG MEAT, that cruel and savage “culture” of psychopaths should be prohibited, since poor dogs, after being tortured, mistreat them, THEY ARE COOKED ALIVE, no animal deserves to be cooked alive. Also, dog meat is unhealthy, as poor dogs with diseases even eat poop and then people eat it like that, disgustingly. Dogs are also pets, dog meat is NOT to eat according to the Bible, and the word of God is above any wild and dirty tradition of eating dogs

    I can’t look at the videos showing the torture & killing of these animals, because the horror will never leave me. Please show compassion and stop killing these dogs. The pain they feel is like that of any other living being, and just as important as us. Since we’re humans, we need to act like it and treat animals with respect.

    I heard from someone on the comment section saying that this is their culture, therefore, we shouldn’t be disturbing them… but, if we have to reserve all the “culture” , why did people stopped sacrificing human being? it was also the culture, right? people start thinking that’s cruel… Now let’s stop eating dogs. this culture doesn’t worth to reserve too.

    Wrong is wrong is wrong no matter what culture it is, this is cruelty and inhumane and should not be acceptable to anyone or any culture and if anyone does accept these acts you are part of the problem and why this continues. Anyone that accepts this including the Government shows they do NOT have any HONOR. and should be looked upon as Evil and Cruel and do NOT deserve any respect.

    The defence of torture as a ‘cultural tradition’ celebrated with ‘festivals’ (atrocities such as Yulin) of dogs and cats being consumed is indefensible. China tortures dogs and cats while alive for the dog and cat meat trade in the following ways: beating to death, hanging to death, boiling to death, dismembering to death, blow-torching to death, slow roasting to death over an open fire, drowning to death — boiling or cold water is immaterial, clubbing to death, skinning alive (fur and meat) leading to a prolonged and agonizing death . . .. Do you want more methods? The methodologies used by the sadists, the psychopaths, — that is exactly what they are — involved in this corruption ridden trade in death are condoned by the totalitarian CCP and its cadres. As a dictatorship, China by the very definition of its imposed governance, The Party, the Law, can do whatever it wishes to the beings under its power and control. In this case, it just does not care to be/show compassion to nonhuman animals. For reasons — if they can be called that — known only to the hierarchy in The Party, torture of living beings seems acceptable, even the norm. I cannot fathom the depth of moral indifference to suffering life that infects the mainland of China under the CCP. They even ignore their own Chinese activists who are trying to end this stain on China’s international reputation. Torture is never part of self-reverential praise of China having 3,000 years of civilization. Torture to nonhuman animals and humans resides in the nation of the netherworld, Hell.

    China under the CCP rewrites history into a narrative of amnesia. The Tiananmen Square massacre by the PLA has become the ‘incident’. If the CCP can murder its own citizens, what hope can the dogs and cats of these continuing ‘festivals’ ever have of being remembered in history?

    I, and the Chinese activists, and the rest of the world that does not believe torture is part of the word civilization, will remember the dogs and cats, and other animals, who went to their deaths because an illegal form of governance decided living beings were simply dispensable objects not worth humane consideration. The CCP is an immoral disgrace to humanity and to suffering life.
