Market where dog meat is sold openly in China

Apparently, the taste for dog meat doesn't linger on the tongues of Calabar people only (no pun intended), but when food isn't sufficient in China, dogs and cats are socially accepted to be served as an emergency food source!



These dogs are mostly bred to be slaughtered, but that doesn't leave out the fact that some of them are stolen pets and street dogs that nobody cares about. In recent times though, growing number of Chinese residents are buying animals as pets and have started the campaign against animal cruelty. Despite the increased local and international pressures to stop dog-eating practices it is still estimated that 10,000 dogs are killed every year during the 1-day dog-eating event in Guangxi Yulin.
