Has anyone heard about the Yulin dog eating festival in China [View all]


I took the plunge after seeing a post about it on Facebook and it was the worst animal abuse story I have ever heard. They boil dogs alive, skin them alive, beat them to improve the taste of their meat. I read several threads about it on Quora and people saying dogs are different especially because they have a unique bond with humans, where they truly love humans. And then many Chinese saying it is a cultural difference and Westerners eat pigs, sheep and cows. But there is absolutely no defense of torturing the dogs. Many people said, the festival will probably eventually end and that younger Chinese are not as into eating dog meat as the older generation.
