No, the Yulin Dog Meat Festival has not been cancelled – here's why it will never go away
Every year come the summer solstice, images of the Yulin Dog Festival swamp social media feeds. Angry animal activists share their rage at the mistreatment of dogs cramped into small cages, destined for the dinner plate as part of a festival aimed to “celebrate” the canine. Last year, it’s thought that some 10,000 dogs were killed and eaten during the festival in southern China. This year, the Yulin Dog Festival is set to start on 21 June and will last until around 30 June.
