Help ban China's dog slaughter

Published 08/06/2015

Dog lovers will be horrified to learn of the needless slaughter and mass consumption of thousands of dogs at an annual event in the Chinese city of Yulin.

Dogs are reportedly electrocuted and skinned alive, then hung upside down, beaten and left to bleed to death.

This is not an ancient cultural tradition. This has only been happening in Yulin for the past few years and was established for economic and tourism purposes.

Please help us in our efforts to ban this horrendous slaughter of dogs by adding your name to our letter addressed to the British Ambassador in China (online at http://bit.ly/1cyYAGN).
