Cruel:  Animals are being slaughtered in the open market

Yulin,China  is know for it's dog and cat meat festival which takes place each year on 21st june. As many as 10,000  dogs and cats are killed each year for human consumption. Local government had claimed that the festival was shut down this year due to large criticism from animal rights campaigners but thorough investigation by animal rights group showed that thousands of animals were still taken in to cages and killed before the festival.

Many dogs and cats are abducted from households,many of them still wearing their collars  in order to make some quick money. Many dogs suffer not only physically but also mental torture. They are crammed into small cages and have their throat slit. Animals are traumatised and beaten to death.

Earlier the festival was advertised by Yulin government in order to get some tourist attraction in their city but due to large outcry from animal rights protection group they distanced themselves from festival and announced new restrictions this year .
