On 21 June, the Yulin Dog Meat Eating Festival will take place in Guangxi, China. 15 000 dogs are slaughtered at this festival. The dogs are skinned and boiled alive or hung upside down and beaten then left to bleed out slowly, in an attempt to increase the adrenaline in their muscles which the misguided believe will increase their virility when eaten. This is just one example of the horrors inflicted on animals in China. Dogs and cats are treated like this and eaten year round. Bears are kept in cages too small to turn around in, and their bile milked from infected openings cut into their stomach. Turtles are sealed into little bags and sold as living key chains. Domestic pets and livestock are kept in appalling conditions at markets. The Chinese government must stop the Yulin dog eating festival. They must pass laws that will ensure that animals - whatever the species - are bred, held and killed in a humane and sustainable way. They must make animal abuse a criminal offense.
