Progress in Yulin, China! Government Pledges Action to Stop Yulin Dog Meat Festival

For the first time, the government of Yulin, China has pledged to take action to stop the barbaric Yulin Dog Meat Festival, where 10,000 dogs are ruthlessly slaughtered and eaten each year on the summer solstice. This is major progress, and follows massive global outcry including a long-running campaign and multiple groundbreaking investigations by LCA.

LCA's newest, penetrating investigation of Yulin dog slaughterhouses (released yesterday) reveals the extreme torture endured by the dogs, many of whom are stolen pets:

In the past, the Yulin government has denied the Yulin Dog Meat Festival even exists -- but investigations like this make it impossible to hide the truth.

Now, a Yulin government representative has written to Hong Kong legislator Michael Tien Puk-sun, a vocal opponent of dog meat, that "authorities would work towards putting an end to the event as soon as possible."

Of course, words are not action, and there is a long way to go. The government must close the slaughterhouses and block the truckloads of dogs entering the city; so far, the only known action is prohibiting public dog slaughter for food safety concerns.

LCA will keep the pressure on until the Yulin government makes good on their word and stops the Yulin Dog Meat Festival completely.

LCA is also working vehemently to shut down the entire dog and cat meat trade, and help pass animal welfare legislation in China that protects ALL animals.
