Chinese Woman Pays $1,100 To Save 100 Dogs From Chinese Dog-Eating Festival

Every year the southern city of China, Yulin celebrates the summer solstice with a festival that involves the slaughter and consumption of as many as 10,000 dogs.

Many petitions have failed in the past but thanks to people taking real action, 100 dogs have been saved by a 65-year-old retired teacher.

Her name is Yang Xiaoyun and she runs an animal shelter in Tianjin and had to travel more than 2,400km (1,500 miles) and spent more than $1,100 to save 100 dogs.

Not everyone in China supports such practices and hopefully more people will get involved to put an end to the madness.

Many argue that there is no difference in the western culture slaughtering farm animals such as cows, but a group of activists in China have accused the festival organizers of ‘unnecessary’ cruelty and torture.

There is no argument that animals all over the world are being tortured, but it is heartbreaking to see what these dogs have to go through.

This year’s Yulin Festival was held on June 21st and caused quite a stir with the international community. A recent petition on change.org received over 4 million signatures.

According to this blog, you can donate to Xiaoyun.
