Dog, cats, tigers, rhinos, cows, chicken. They all matter. They can feel, they can suffer. I do not care if they are smart or not. We humans, we are so smart that we make sure we kill each other in wars, we eat GMOS and do not legalize cure for cancer.
But it is June 2016 and again the Yulin Festival. Some Chinese people torture, killed and eat dogs. In other countries they do the same with pigs, cows and chickens. I do not agree with any culture, tradition, religion that promotes cruelty. Cows are sacred in India. I do not see Indian Animal Activist in United States trying to save cows. I wonder why. But there are activist from around the world in China right now.
I do not agree with any culture, tradition, religion that promotes cruelty. But today I am talking about this Festival that needs to end forever.
Please, please watch the video below. If you can, share it. The people in the video are not hypocrites, they do a lot for all animals. Marc Ching is one of the heroes there.
For you that are reading this post and you love dogs and cats and eat meat, I want to tell you that it is fine. I was there. There are people who do not like any animals at all. If you like dogs or cats you have some compassion in you. You will care about what is happening in Yulin now. And maybe one day you will be seating in a restaurant and you will order a salad instead of a steak. I am pro reduction in animal consumption.
