All dogs deserve a better life than the horrific one they will endure in China. It seems as though the Chinese governemnt think its above manind as nothing ever changes within the country. They still insist on slaughtering cats and dogs in the most barbaric ways, poaching tigers and using body parts and bones for 'medicine', illegally importing rhino horn again for 'medicine' and abusing bears for their bile day after day. How can the civilised world get through to such an arrogant, ignorant, indifferent country?

Saint Bernards are a self- sacrificing symbol of hope and have saved many human lives. We need to continue to aim for a world where all creatures are treated with compassion and respect. Regardless of whether one chooses to eat meat or not, the treatment of others shows our own worth. Deliberately causing pain and suffering to another being is unacceptable.
 

Iona Kentwell (134)

I've got to say, the racist comments on this thread are also pretty upsetting. The call for compassion goes for to all beings not just for animals. There are so many conflicts around the world based on differing view points and the feeling that "you" must do as "I" say is right rather than reaching an understanding and moving forward together with compassion. Cultures all over the world differ in some pretty fundamental ways, but if all we do is throw stones and write the "other" off we will never achieve a peaceful loving home.

GHASTLY. ONLY SANCTIONS ACROSS THE BOARD ON ALL LEVELS WILL MAKE A LASTING IMPACT ON GOVERNMENT OFFICIALS WHO WOULD HARVEST THEIR OWN GRANDMOTHERS FOR CONSUMPTION IF THEY THOUGHT THEY COULD TURN A BUCK ON IT.

From the petition author:

"Saint Bernards are being imported and raised in farms to be cruelly slaughtered in China. Their meat is then sold for a high price and served as a delicacy. This particular breed of dog is used because they are docile, easy to breed, and large. It is completely devastating that they are being slaughtered, but the way this is happening is almost too horrendous to write and I warn you that it will be difficult to read. The dogs are not killed humanely; instead they are left to bleed to death, skinned or strangled. The terror that is inflicted upon these innocent animals creates an adrenaline rush that supposedly improves the flavor of their meat. Additionally the conditions in which they are raised is completely inhumane; to transport them they are piled on top of each other in small cages and they live in unsanitary enclosures.

Saint Bernards are a self- sacrificing symbol of hope and have saved many human lives. Historically named Saint dogs by monks, these animals have rescued many people from death and cold with their incredible sense of direction and their compassionate nature. They have been known to find people buried beneath the snow and lay over them to share the warmth of their bodies and carry lost children to safety on their backs. Over 200 years they have rescued about 2,000 lost children, travelers, climbers and soldiers. They have displayed so much selfless loyalty to humans; to kill them is an atrocious and horrifying act. It is utterly selfish to consume these beautifully regal animals, this issue needs to be eradicated immediately.

This is a global issue because the dogs are often imported from other countries then bred with Mongolian-Chinese dogs. The lives of not only Saint Bernards, but all dogs in China could be saved by the Food and Agriculture Association simply banning the human consumption of dogs. Currently China lists dogs under the category of livestock; this must be changed by urging the FAO to ban human consumption of dog meat. It is also important that each country bans the exportation of dogs to China. These saintly dogs deserve to be protected as they have been our heros for centuries.

Noted and "signed" with comment: "In addition to opposing the consumption of dogs and cats, and native wild animals, it is necessary to oppose the consumption of all animals, including sheep, cows, pigs, chickens and fish. No government or other authority should be offering any support or subsidies to any animal killing industry. Individuals can and should spread the message that all meat consumption is unnecessary, cruel, unsustainable and socially unacceptable. I am pleased that an animal rights movement is getting stronger in China. My experience in Croatia indicates that it is actually easier to achieve abolitionist animal rights victories (albeit single issue campaigns) in non-English speaking countries than it is in the United States of America, the United Kingdom and Australia (when we consider the billions of dollars and activist hours invested over the past 30 years with little more than welfarist reforms to show)."

However, I have to say that I get turned off by ForceChange because it is not possible to see who else has "signed", how many people have "signed", or which petitions I have "signed" in the past. I was not sure whether there was any point in repeating the same comment on Facebook so I did not do so. Whilst there, I did "sign" a few more petitions at ForceChange, but these endless petitions, comments and messages have totally "hijacked" me and are stopping me from doing activism in the street and writing my own letters (which are much more effective).

I learned about the treatment of animals in China over 3 years ago, and stopped buying China-made products. I will only buy them second-hand, so China gets none of my money, but I have found so many local made alternatives I am proud to support. Give it a try: don't say, 'oh, it's impossible' - it isn't! It takes effort and diligence, but it's worth it. If everyone boycotted Chinese products and told them why, they might stop.

When you take something so magnificent and use it for such depraved purposes, your soul dies and you become totally devoid of your humanity as you turn into something grotesque and unrecognizable as you no longer are a human being and your life becomes a legacy of causing other sentient beings pain! How I hope that this petition helps and I also hope that breeders realize their moral responsibility in no longer selling these dogs to China so that this horrible, barbaric, and unconscionable business will come to an end now!

i'm beginning to worry that sensible people are starting to border on xenophobia. this is cruel, but from the sound of it no more cruel than how livestock is treated in the united states. it is rather close-minded to judge the chinese perception of dogs as livestock; cows are animals just as dogs are, why is it fair to subject them to the desensitization of labelling them 'livestock' but not dogs? is it because they're too big to fit in our beds? or is it because you continue to continue the cycle of indoctrination? "cows/pigs/chickens are just food for us; they have no feelings".

again, let me reiterate that i think this is horrific and these awful practices should be punished, but America is just as bad as China.

When I was a teenager, we had a St.Bernard, male, 225 pounds. A more gentle, terrific dog you couldn't find. A pain in the butt, due to his size, is a resounding YES. Would we have traded him for any other type dog, a resounding NO.

Sometimes, we (humans) just want to exert our power, over those less powerful. How disgusting!

But on that note I must add that we here are little better with our factory farming, animal abuse, high kill shelters etc. It's just a matter of degree, and we have to clean up our our own countrys animal problems also. Thanks so much Cher.

Signed - reminds me of a couple of decades ago when Fergal Keene of the BBC was in Hong Kong - and he had a large labrador.... one day his cleaner was walking the dog for him, and the cleaner, though Chinese and used to eating everything had become attached to the dog and saw him as a loving and loved individual... and a stranger approached the pair walking along and offered a large sum of money - so the dog could be the main dish at a party! The cleaner (God bless her) was horrified and hustled the dog to home and safety...

This must be stopped - no civilisation can call itself civilised and eat dogs and cats!

Signed and shared - thanks Lynn - I get distressed by such anti Chinese sentiment - a lot of that culture has little respect for dogs and are not taught to, and a lot of those in China have experienced hunger - with little hope to eat much else - habits may become hardened - it's enough to voice objection and hope that with more concern for life that this habit may be broken!

Mainly the Chinese men are appalling - they are known to eat everything with four legs, except for tables.

ok, seriously. i'm starting to wonder which sickens me more: the act for which this petition was created, or the responses in this thread. never before have i seen such racism and xenophobia from people that i had hoped call themselves "progressive". how can you voice your concern for animal welfare while simultaneously being so culturally ignorant that you slander other humans simply because they do something you were brought up believing is 'culturally unacceptable.' are you this vile towards americans in forums about factory farming? an animal is an animal; they all deserve to be treated with respect and dignity. THE SAME GOES FOR HUMANS. how many chinese people do you know? do any of the ones you DO know eat "anything with four legs"? perhaps, you have never been hungry. not only have you always had the money to buy food, but you have never lived anywhere that DIDN'T have food even if you had money. you've always been able to make a choice, a choice that is 'culturally acceptable'. not all chinese people have that choice. this thread is absolutely vile.
 

Laurita Walters (60)

Of course the Chinese will eat anything. They are hungry! There are too many and too few have the freedom many of us have to go buy choices of food. If you grow up eating meat, and everyone you know eats meat, then there is no morality against eating meat because morality is a societal issue.

While I have nothing against eating meat, I wish they would treat the animals humanely and kill quickly instead of torturing their meals. I know some think that improves flavor or value, but it is really dismaying.

I usually skip these stories because the comments make me almost as sick as the issue.

Too bad so many use posts like this to vent your bigotries. Bigotry does not improve communication. Communication is the only tool that will help with these problems.
