Despite online outcry from animal rights activists, the dog meat festival in Yulin, Guanxi, will go ahead next Friday in Yulin, Guangxi. Thousands of diners are expected to crowd food streets, and more than 10,000 dogs are estimated to be killed for use in hotpot. Efforts to block the festiva – including open letters to the Yulin government, recruitment of celebrities to condemn the practice and even petitioning to the US White House – seemed to have gone in vain. Do you think Yulin locals should be allowed to continue hosting their dog meat festival?
