To eat dog means barbarian, to eat cow meat means humane or to eat vegetables means divine? All ar ...

Right.
But Yulin created a cult out of eating dog meat, a fetish for the wealthy to splurge money on. That is crass and uncivilised.

Personally, what upsets me the most is the barbaric way of how they dispatch the dogs. There is no justification for barbarity, for atrocious killings. The dogs suffer more than other animals because they grow up trusting people as their "friends". The dogs killed in Yulin for the fun of tourists are usually STOLEN from other families and often transported on long hauls by truck.

There is not a single shred of reason to maintain this travesty of a "festival".

It is not "dogs are friends of human beings", but  only "the dog of your house is the friend or family of yours", because if you use such a logic, all the people under the sun are family members, but why do some of them deserve to be put into prison or even put to capital punishment simply because they like to eat dog meat?

Only depraved Barbarians invent an "ancient tradition" that drips with the blood of man's best friend or indeed, with the blood of any animate thing, and make tourist yuan off it.

This horrible event has been around for just about ten years. Why do they lie about its "history", claiming it is an "ancient tradition"? Why do they steal other people's dogs to kill them? I have seen hand-written notices in which individuals sought to buy dogs for this "festival". These notices sprang up in places 200 kms away from barbarous Yulin.
