Sadly, dogs are tortured, slaughtered, and eaten by humans in several countries in South East Asia. Despite public outrage in most of these countries, dog meat continues to be sold in markets and served in restaurants.
Combating the dog meat trade is complicated, but there are plenty of ways you can get involved.
The Yulin Dog Meat Festival in China is one of the most well-known and publicized events centered around dog meat consumption. Because it is called a festival, it is easy to misinterpret this event as historical and culturally important, but it is not.
