            A huge victory for animal lovers around the world – dog meat has just been temporarily banned from the infamous Yulin Festival in China that has already taken the lives of thousands and thousands of innocent canines. The ban will come into effect on June 15 – that’s one week before the start of the festival. It will prohibit the sale of dog meat at restaurants, markets, and street vendors. Those who don’t obey will be facing a fine of up to 100,000 yuan (nearly $15,000) and arrest.

            Contrary to popular belief, the festival is not some old tradition. It was invented back in 2010 as a way for dog meat traders to make more money. A lot of the dogs who are brought to the festival are stolen from their owners and still wear collars. The methods in which dogs (and cats) are killed are unparalleled in cruelty around the world.

            Andrea Gung, executive director of Duo Duo Animal Welfare Project commented: “Even if this is a temporary ban, we hope this will have a domino effect, leading to the collapse of the dog meat trade.” She added “This ban is consistent with my experience that Yulin and the rest of the country is changing for the better.”
