AND let's boycott China everyway we can! China is vying for another Olympics and that JUST CANNOT HAPPEN! If you are on fb, go to the IOC page to protest any awarding of an Olympics to barbaric China! If they IOC thinks Sochi was a mess with all the bad publicity and boycotting, wait until they try to give China the bid. Same with Japan & Taiji!

S & N - BARBARIC - these animals suffer enormously. These Asian countries aspire to be 1st world countries. They MUST stop these heinous customs. We must put relentless pressure on their governments. The World is watching and judging. On a positive note: There are global organizations that are working to eradicate this heinous industry. PLEASE SUPPORT THEM IN THEIR EFFORTS. VoiceLessFriends, AsiaAnimals, LastChanceForAnimals,StandByAnimals, AnimalsEquality and others.

I lived and worked in China for 6 months and it is a beautiful country with such kind people. As I have re-quoted many many times however: "The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated" - Mahatma Gandhi. It saddens me that it is newsworthy events such as these that people hear about.

Sadly noted and signed.

China, a disgusting, sickening country inhabited by equally disgusting, sickening masses. Shame on CHINA, a country at the bottom of the cess-pit for depravity, brutality and cruelty. Shame on CHINA, a country that has lost all compassion, all empathy, all integrity and above all, all moral ethics.

I quote another ce2 memeber here, anna e.

Dogs are domesticated. They have been helping humans and pulling their weight for years and years. They even help to keep blood pressure down, in addition to serving in the military, and police forces. They rescue people after disasters, and serve as service dogs. Using them for human consumption is sickening.

I lost track of my posts-mybad!
Dogs may be considered food in China, as beef and chicken are by many in the rest of the world, but NO animal should be tortured before entering the food chain.

I would not choose to eat dog, but i would not ever torture an animal as is done in China. Burned alive electrocuted, hanged, boiled alive, skinned alive- The extreme barbarism is Overwhelming.
This tradition is Very inhumane, Very cruel, And Extrordinarily indicative of a a backward and benighted country.
China, please stop this outrage. It IS The RIGHT Thing to do.

Killing animals for sport, for pleasure, for adventures, and for hides and furs is a phenomenon which is at once disgusting and distressing. There is no justification in indulging in such acts of brutality - His Holiness The Dalai Lama

May all that have life be delivered from suffering - Lord Buddha

Not to hurt our humble brethren (the animals) is our first duty to them, but to stop there is not enough. We have a higher mission--to be of service to them whenever they require it - St Francis of Assisi
