Dog meat sales plum­met prior to fes­ti­val

China Daily (Canada) - - NEWSCAPSULE -

Sales of dog meat re­port­edly have plum­meted days be­fore the con­tro­ver­sial “Sum­mer Ly­chee and Dog Meat Fes­ti­val” in Yulin city, Guangxi Zhuang au­ton­o­mous re­gion, and ven­dors pre­dict greatly re­duced prof­its.

The an­nual event, which falls on June 21, has at­tracted a huge pub­lic outcry on­line, and drawn protests from an­i­mal right pro­test­ers who ar­rived in the city from var­i­ous parts of the coun­try.

Many dog meat restaurants cov­ered the word “dog” on their ad­ver­tis­ing while some put posters on their walls, read­ing “Pro­tect­ing the an­i­mals”. (Photo 1)
