|Activists Demonstrate in China to Shut Down Yulin dog Meat Festival|
Human Society of United States' (HSI.org) team in Yulin (China) reported that the atmosphere in the Yulin city is tense, but so far evidence suggests reduced killing and less visible dog meat eating than in previous years. And today, the Yulin authorities set up road checkpoints to stop incoming trucks filled with dogs and cats, a key proposal that HSI and its partners in China have lobbied for. As many animals will have already been brought to Yulin, however, HSI urges the government to take more decisive steps such as shutting down the slaughterhouses.
