The Lychee and Dog Meat Festival, commonly referred to as Yulin Dog Meat Festival, is an annual celebration held in Yulin, Guangxi, China, during the summer solstice. Festival goers eat dog meat and lychees. The festival spans about ten days during which it is estimated that 10,000–15,000 dogs are consumed. There are similar “festivals” in Korea and other Asian countries…
Canines cramped in constricting crates,
market displayed, restaurant-fare their fate.
Mindlessly consumed on fun “festive” days,
humans make helpless, poor animals pay.
Confined without compassion or regret:
‘kind companions’ culled – thoughtless mindset.
See dogs deeply smile, such soulful eyes,
don’t harden your heart with culinary lies.
Fake medicinal properties, sex-superstitions!
Protests repressed, quashed pleading petitions.
O canine creator, show that you care:
divinely interfere with cruel Asian affairs!
