It’s this time of year again, where the Chinese Guangxi Province host the Yulin Lychee and Dog Meat Festival. Many of these animals are stolen from residents and sold at this festival and market. They skin the animals alive, beat them to death, then sell their “meat” to thousands of Chinese attendees. Even though 64% of Chinese (according to CCTV, China’s national broadcaster) are AGAINST eating dogs and think this eating dogs should be banned in China.

Many people argue, “we eat pics, cows, etc, why do we make such a big deal about eating dogs?”, my reply to those people is:
In a perfect world, (in my opinion) also pigs/cows/etc would not be harvested and slaughtered for human consumption… people do not NEED animal flesh to live. You eat it because that’s what you were raised to eat, and so were your parents and before them. It’s “normal” but that doesn’t necessarily it’s right, nor does it mean that you should have the right to eat anything in the world that is non human. Animals are born and raised by their mothers/fathers, with the same organs as humans, we are more intelligent than the way we act.
The taste of a juicy burger that we ate since young, compared to the knowledge of the fact all animals have nervous systems, brains, feelings, emotions…. most of us choose to ignore that for the selfish fact we can continue eating those tasty burgers rather than boring vegetables, fruits, nuts, etc. imo.

Rodrigo Duterte is the front runner for the upcoming Philippines presidency. Some comments he made years back about cleaning up the stray animals problem was, in his exact words: “The best solution to rid the city (Davao City) of stray dogs is by shooting them or poisoning them.” (Source is Philippine Daily Inquirer here.)
How could someone be a presidential hopeful when barbaric comments like these are being made? This is just disgusting!
Ontario, Canada Bowmanville Zoo owner Michael Hackenberger, who is also the tiger trainer for the movie “Life of Pi” is exposed ON VIDEO whipping and beating a tiger, while cursing at him, trying to get the tiger to do what he wants him to do.
Please sign this petition to have charges brought against Mr. Hackenberger. Also, please OSPCA, please investigate this matter.
here is another animal trainers response to this situation:
Letter to meat eaters: Just because you and I are not the ones actually being inhumane to animals at slaughter houses and breeding facilities does not make us innocent to the cruelty that animals must endure. If you are part of the demand for animals (“meat”) then you are also partially part of the inhumanity. Think about that please before you waste those McDonalds chicken nuggets, or cant finish your steak, or let your gallon of milk expire and go to waste. I am not even begging, pleading for meat eaters to stop eating meat, but please try to stop wasting. I was a meat lover for the first 30 years of my life and I was VERY guilty and blind to animal cruelty. Living blind doesn’t mean the cruelty is not happening. Please don’t be wasteful.

Neighbors found the pitbull, named Christmas Chance, with 2 broken hips and his mouth taped shut with electrical tape, as you can see from the photos, he’ll be scarred around his mouth for life. Please help urge the Indiana court system to give maximum penalty for this piece of shit Richard Cope.
