N/S, I just wonder how many people who abhor dog/cat meat trade also abhor meat trade as such, regardless of what kind of animal it concerns! This does not make the issue of dog meat trade less important, of course. However, classification of animals does not reflect their real value or rights; dogs deserve to live as much as any other animals! The Chinese regard dogs as though they were farm animals, which we should not forget! May all animals be spared this!

Emrys M- dogs are at least on a par with pigs as sentient and intelligent beings- plus dogs are purposely treated in cruel and sadistic ways during slaughter- this festival tortures animals in order to produce meat for a party- cancer isn't cured, world peace isn't achieved- there is no good reason on earth that these animals should suffer this much.

I don't know why it matters how intellegent an animal is. They all feel pain unless they have no nerve endings. Whether it's a farm animal or a domestic one, none of them should suffer. This is so upsetting. I will never understand what makes human beings capable of torturing living beings so easily as this. It just doesn't compute.

I could not get the webform to work, so I sent an email.

My first choice would be to ban the eating of dogs and cats, but often requests to do that are ignored because we westerners eat meat. So my letter was specific that it was the inhumane treatment of the dogs I wanted stopped.

Also remembering good old Dale Carnagie's maxim,
"Convince people by talking to them in terms of their own interests."

I hate doing half measures. I think of my 3 late shelties. I love dogs.

This is what I sent:

My most important request is that the Yulin City ban the abuse, torture or painful execution of dogs during the raising, transportation, marketing and slaughter of dogs.

I would prefer that the eating of dogs be totally banned, but if you are unwilling to ban it, at least put an end to the horrific torture some of your food must endure on its way to your mouth.

The Chi and Karma of abused beings can infect the soul of the eater.

With my food here in Canada, I do eat meat. But I want my meat (fish, beef or chicken) to have lead a reasonably good life before ending with a quick painless death. That my food not suffer is very important to me so to avoid creating bad Chi or bad Karma.
