Chinese people: "Stop the Yulin Dog Meat Festival!"


he Lychees and Dog Meat Festival, more known as Yulin Dog Meat Festival, is an annual celebration held in Yulin, Guangxi, China, during the summer solstice in which festival goers eat dog meat and lychees. Although, this festival was backlashed and became a controversy for being so brutal to dogs which are more viewed as pets and not as food.   

However, not every people in the country, China actually agree to the said controverial dining and, as a matter of fact, has many who absolutely oppose to it. In every Yulin Dog Meat Festival, there are fights that always happen with fellow chinese people alike, fighting for the rights of the dogs to set them free.

And even until now, as stated from a survey conducted by the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences, an increasing number of Chinese people has already disclosed their distaste for dog meat. And according to 'CCTV,' out of 30,000 netizens, 64 percent have declared their support to a legislation that would ban eating dog meat. 

The survey made the Chinese people understand more and change their view regarding the said controversy. And as the festival is about to come on June 21 in southwestern China's Yulin City, they will draw repercussions from both domestic and international communities.

Eating dog meat go years back in China, South Korea and other countries, believing that eating it could ward off the heat during summer but the habit suddenly got disliked as lifestyles in China have changed only having dogs as pets. The relationship of dog and human also made them change their mind towards this kind of domestic animals.

For that reason, now the practice of eating dog meat made China's social media go in an uproar and surge with intense outrage. 

And in an independent survey by Horizon, a Chinese polling company, found that 64 percent of the surveyed population desired the controversial festival to be called off, which was constant with the poll on legislation.
