DOG EATING FEASTIVAL IN CHINA BEING CARRIED OUT SECREATLY


Dog-eating feastival in in Yulin China  was supposedly shut down last year. But an undercover investigation by Humane Society International (HSI) has revealed that dogs and cats are being stolen and slaughtered in the thousands to feed residents in Yulin, China.
For them, the Yulin dog-eating festival (taking place on June 22 this year) is an annual celebration of the summer solstice.
But to critics, the event is extreme cruelty.
Animals are transported in bad conditions, which leave them dehydrated. Those that survive the commute end up with broken bones.
According to The Guardian, Telegraph and Daily Mail, about 10,000 animals - mainly dogs - are slaughtered and eaten as part of a hot pot dish.
Dog-eating is not illegal in China but animal lovers all over the world especially in the US, UK and Australia have been petitioning to have the festival shut down.
HSI's Peter Li, who was part of the recent undercover investigation said the newly-slaughtered dogs are impaled on spikes.
He told MailOnline: "Mass dog slaughter is still going on at Yulin despite the local authorities trying to give the impression that's it's ended.
"The Yulin government has declared the 'festival' will not happen, but this is mere semantics and thousands of dogs will still die for their meat whether it's called a festival or not."
His description of slaughterhouse conditions has outraged animal lovers.
