Dog meat, about to be banned at the Yulin festival?
Dogs, Meat, Festival
The infamous Yulin Festival in China is the cause of every year a massacre of dogs, killed for their meat. But for the first time, it seems that this macabre industry is being undermined. It was time! In a press release on May 17th, Humane Society International and the Duo Duo Animal Welfare Project announced a new world-wide news: in Yulin, restaurants, traders and street vendors will have
banned from selling meat
A deterrent sentence This new law will come into effect on June 15, one week before the start of the festival on June 21. In case of non-compliance with this law, the persons concerned are liable to arrest and a fine
of up to 100,000 yuan (more than 13,000 euros)! If the international fight against Against the Yulin Festival is not over yet, Humane Society International welcomes however this major breakthrough. She hopes that this decision will be respected and that it will also concern cats
: 4 million of them are killed each year for their consumption in China, in addition to the 10 million dogs. A read also:
