Due to protests, Yulin, China won't sell dog meat at its dog meat festival this year. Yes, roast cats will still be available but somehow, it just won't be the same.
Dog meat will be banned at an annual Chinese festival after activists campaigned to stop millions of animals being stolen and bludgeoned to death each year.
The government is set to prohibit restaurants, street vendors and market traders from selling dog meat at the barbaric Yulin festival.
It is believed the ban will come into effect on June 15 - one week before the festival begins - and strictly enforced by fines of up to 100,000 yuan and risk of arrest.
Millions of helpless cats will still be transported to the festival to be brutally slaughtered in front of each other and sold for their meat, alongside other types of meat.
Our loss, and our former president's. Though the press excused Barack's occasional bite into hot dogs as a holdover from his childhood, it turns out that the claimed shared cultural heritage between his fellow Kenyans and the Chinese may not be as historical as believed::
Contrary to popular belief, the Yulin festival is not a traditional event but one invented in 2010 by dog meat traders to boost flagging sales.
