3: Most Chinese like to eat dogs.
The statement is false. The notorious Yulin Dog Meat Festival, which takes place in South China’s Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region every June, has been frequently covered by media at home and abroad in recent years and has caused heated debate globally.
Each year, disturbing photos of piles of dead dogs are widely disseminated online. And this sadly misleads many foreigners into thinking that all Chinese eat dogs.
Actually, eating dog meat is just a localized custom in a few southern areas and has never been a nationwide tradition.
Fortunately, to this question all of our participants gave the correct answer. None of them thought most Chinese like to eat dogs.
