The Yulin Dog Meat Festival is an example of why we don’t eat meat

WARNING:

Inside the video and in the tweet link below there are explicit images that viewers might find disturbing.

The Yulin Dog Meat Festival in China is back again. This year it is between the 21st and the 30th of June.  Some 15,000 dogs will be killed. They will be tortured, torched alive, clubbed to death, chopped, skinned and butchered all in the name of food and food delicacy. There is a massive trade in stolen dogs and cats in China to provide the “meat” for this festival. In fact a large number of the dogs are actually stolen from people.

It is hypocritical for us in the west to just denounce this without looking at the barbaric acts of animal cruelty that happen on our doorstep. Take foie gras and veal and the killing of all male chicks… and the list is endless. Many look at disgust at us Maltese that kill and eat cuddle rabbits. If you cannot eat a dog, why do you choose to eat another animal!
