China Has Finally Banned Dog Meat From The Infamous Yulin Festival

China Has Finally Banned Dog Meat From The Infamous Yulin Festival

It's a great victory for animal lovers around the globe, as dog meat has just been temporarily banned from the notorious Yulin Festival in China. That festival has already taken the lives of countless innocent dogs. The ban will come into effect on June 15, one week before the beginning of the festival. It will forbid the sale of canine meat at restaurants, markets, as well as street vendors. Anyone who doesn’t obey will face a fine of up to 100,000 yuan (approximately $15,000) and will be arrested.

Contrary what most people would think, the festival is not some old tradition. It started in 2010 as a way for canine meat traders to make more money. Many of the dogs that are brought to the festival are stolen from their owners, and they still wear collars. The methods in which dogs (and cats) are treated and killed are extremely cruel.

As Andrea Gung, executive director of Duo Duo Animal Welfare Project commented: “Even if this is a temporary ban, we hope this will have a domino effect, leading to the collapse of the dog meat trade.” She added, “This ban is consistent with my experience that Yulin and the rest of the country is changing for the better.”

  1. Are you in bad need of love spell to bring back your ex lover or reunite your marriage? I had a problem with my husband a year and six months ago, which lead us apart. When he broke up with me, I was confuse and did not know what to do to get him back until i came across Dr. Omoluyi on the internet on how He has helped so many people solve their various problems. I Emailed Him and I told Him my problem and i did what he asked me to do for him to help me, to briefly make the long story short, Before I knew it, in less than 24 HOURS, my Husband gave me a call and he came back to me and told me he was sorry about what was going on between the both of us. Finally, I am deeply showing my gratitude to Dr. Omoluyi for keeping his words and promises in bringing back my husband. If you need his help, you can email him at: [ [email protected] ], Call or text him on +1 (518) 460-6400 or Reach him through his Website: [ http://www.doctorokpamenspells.com ]. Mia Klaus, USA.
