Does Coronavirus mean Yulin will end?

UPDATE

Shenzhen has agreed to ban wildlife and will also include dog and cat meat. They have taken into account the strong bond humans have with dogs and cats.

 

Shenzhen is a border city well known for a gruesome dog meat market, and the neighbouring Guangzhou is where in 2017 we intercepted a truck of 1400 dogs on route to the Yulin dog meat festival.

 

Following the national ban on ending the consumption of wildlife, residents have been given a chance to speak out against eating all other domesticated animals, including cats and dogs.

A draft law has drawn up lists of edible and inedible. Dogs and cats and animals used for research will be regarded as illegal to consume and so will snakes, insects, birds and turtles.

For anyone who has been to a dog meat market or to Yulin, you will know it is like a crime scene, and there are zero regards for health safety.

Please help kind-hearted Asians and assist us to put an end to this cruelty by writing to the Shenzhen authorities at this email address:

szrdfw@163.com

Shenzhen is proposing a fine of 20,000 Yuan – 50,000 Yuan for anyone organising a banquet. This needs to apply to the disgraceful festival.

Please keep signing and sharing our petition.

If these moves go ahead it will mean our work over ten years is finally paying off.

We hope other Asian Countries follow suit.

Thank you, everyone, for all your hard work!

  2. The cruelty of the dog and cat meat trade is synonomous with a scene from hell. It is disgusting and rampant for disease to flourish.
    There is no place for this obscenity to exist in the modern world.
    If China and fellow Asian countries persist in these abhorrant activities hopefully civilised countries will have nothing more to do with them.

  3. Dogs are treated abominably in the process leading up to and during slaughter. It is a filthy industry with no health standards and needs immediately to be stopped. The Yulin festival is vile and sickening, and no wonder the world screams at the very thought of it. Ban dog meat now!

  5. Please stop this horrible and cruel practice! Dogs and cats are domesticated animals and companions to us. They show compassion and love for us and they are family! This slaughter of these beautiful souls is just beyond horrible! They are also very intelligent! We use them for companionship and for sniffing out drugs. Please, please stop this now.

  10. Nothing can justify torturing, brutalizing and beating an animal to death, heightening it’s fear at the point of death in the belief it will taste BETTER!😢
    This beastiality has no place in an evolving society. It is beyond evil. The people who do this are instruments of Satan. How can they sleep at night.
    Dogs are sentient beings. They have souls, they love unconditionally. They ask for little other than to be loved and treated with kindness and respect in return for the astronomical love and trust they bestow on us.
    It’s one thing to kill an animal for food but to put a defenceless gentle animal through barbaric torture is beyond evil. It is absolutely indefensible!
    Dogs are pets, beloved of GOD.
    Torturing dogs and cats, beating, hanging, boiling them is an offence to GOD.
    Please listen to your consciences and stop it NOW, TODAY!
