On June 21, Yulin, a small city in Guangxi Province, China, celebrated an annual dog-meat festival amid intense criticism from animal rights groups, which have denounced the one-day event as unsafe and inhumane.

Residents of Yulin in Guangxi province consider the festival an ancient summer solstice tradition. Many cherish their city's dog-meat culture, which involves the mass consumption of dog-meat hotpot served with lychees and strong grain liquor.

Animal rights groups say 10,000 dogs are slaughtered during the festival each year, and that many are electrocuted, burned and skinned alive. Pictures posted online show flayed dogs, dogs hanging from meat hooks, and piles of dog corpses on the side of the road.


What do you think of Yulin Dog Meat Festival? Should it be banned in China?

I say it for the second time: Yulin should be nuked. Its Barbarian residents should be dispersed. They have no culture, no humanity, no decency.

I don't have much against eating dog meat (though I would avoid eating it myself), but slaughter of animals (as well as raising and transportation of livestock) in general should be done in least painful ways possible.

What I hear from Yulin, is that the humans make it point to cause stress to the animals before and while being killed, to enhance flavors.

I do object that.

If cows are my pet, should people ban beef eating?
If chicken are my pet, should people ban chick eating?


Nonsense.


Do you understand the law of Chinese? There's no such a law that forbide people to eat dogs. Your remarks have little basis in the law of China.

Dog eating is Chinese culture with the descriptions in Chinese classical literature as well as Jing Yong's novel.

Aussies also eat kangaroo's meat too. Do you want to ban that? Silly remarks.

Why do Chinese people have to cater for the taste of Western culture? No, they should learn to respect ours.

Prostitution is legalized in Western countries, should China follow suit?

To eat dog means barbarian, to eat cow meat means humane or to eat vegetables means divine? All are lives.
If people in Yulin should be nuked, how about people in Europe and Americas, are they to be put into hell and burned alive?

Guangxi is not a province in the current regime, as Beijing is not a province, if you don't know the administrative system of China, Baidu it before posting your foolish thread.
