China Bans Dog Meat From Yulin Festival
The years of campaigning against the dog meat has finally paid off as the government bans dog meat from Yulin festival. The new law saves innocent dogs from giving way their life which used to be a common thing earlier.
The ban will come into force from June 15, a week before the festival. Andrea Gung, executive director of Duo Duo Animal Welfare Project, said: 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 are changing for the better. I am very impressed that the younger generation in Yulin and in China is as compassionate as their counterparts in the rest of world.
Anybody who is seen trading dog meat will be slapped with a fine up to 100000 yuan and a possible arrest.
