Dog meat sales plummet prior to festival
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)
