I don't know if you guys have heard about the Dog Meat Festival in China, where they mass butcher dogs and roast them on sticks. The moment I heard about and saw pictures of that horrible festival, my heart broke over and over again. For the life of me, I couldn't imagine treating animals in the cruelest way possible. There have been several petitions the world over, calling for the Chinese government to take action and put an end to this barbaric tradition. However, such petitions have fallen on deaf ears. Chinese officials think they have more pressing issues to consider. I hope with all my heart that organizations crusading against animal cruelty could intervene and rescue the poor dogs. That festival must be eliminated so that no dog will have to suffer so cruelly again.
