China's Dog Meat Festival Will Go On Despite Growing Protests
Held every year, the Yulin Dog Meat Festival results in the slaughter of thousands of dogs, which are then served in some of the restaurants in this city in south China. An international campaign to halt the killing keeps growing each year. Millions in Canada, the U.K. and the United States have signed petitions calling for China to end the festival, which is scheduled to start this year on June 21. Yet it not just foreign activists who are working to stop China's dog meat trade. There are now millions of pet owners in the world's most populous country.
