Today marks the start of the ninth annual dog meat festival in Yulin. But what is it and why has the event in this remote part of southern China proved to be so controversial in recent years? Cat meat, fresh lychees and liquor are also available at the festival. The first festival took place in to mark the summer solstice. Dog eating is traditional in China, and according to folklore eating the meat during the summer months brings luck and good health. Some also believe dog meat can ward off diseases and heighten men's sexual performance.
The festival has attracted widespread negative coverage within China and internationally. There are also complaints that dogs are brought to Yulin from across China in cramped conditions, and festival visitors have reported seeing some animals with collars, indicating they are stolen pets. Eating dogs is not illegal in China.
But attitudes are changing. Animal activists, celebrities and younger Chinese citizens have been increasingly vocal on social media about opposing dog eating festivals and the practice in general. At the moment, this seems unlikely.
US activists claimed that there was a ban on the sale of dog meat at the festival but this has proved to be incorrect. Visitors have reported less public slaughters and the removal of signs indicating dog meat is for sale. The Yulin Municipal Government has repeatedly said that it is not able to stop the festival as it claims it does not exist as an official event. You can find our Community Guidelines in full here.
