Sometimes in my head, I imagine the world to be a place of no abuse, no crime, no war, and no hate. Unfortunately, we live in a world full of all of those things. And when I heard about the following story, I almost refused to write it. But the more I thought about it, the more I realized it needs to be shown more to the public and this abuse to animals needs to stop.
I am warning you now, the following photos and video are very graphic.
Some residents of the southern Chinese city of Yulin started gathering last weekend and eating dog meat and lychees to celebrate the longest day of the year, the Summer Solstice. There are celebrations across the country celebrating this time year. This year, to avoid protesters participants of the festival started a bit early. Their celebration? Eating Dogs. Yes, I said that correctly, eating innocent dogs.
The Human Society has put together a campaign to put a stop to this. Not only is it cruel, but it is just wrong.
