• DAY 269: TODAY IS BEST DAY OF THE YEAR – IT JUST TURNED TO SHIT. CHINA TO KILL 1000’s OF DOGS

    I love summer solstice.

    As someone that doesn’t do well with darkness – both outside and inside the soul- the longest day of the year is something I feel more important than christmas day. Light and life and hippies and yoga and all that.

    So it’s with anger and sadness (and something closer to a fist in a wall) that I read that some people are celebrating in a less than positive way – by eating thousands of dogs.

    Man's best friend??

    What a f**cking suprise, its in China. Excuse my French. As you know I’m now working on wild animals and my dog days are temporarily behind me (not for long) but I can’t help post about this stuff.

    In Yulin province in China it is estimated that today – right now in fact – the Chinese will be killing over 10,000 dogs to savour the delicacy with some wine and lychees. It is claimed (known) that some dogs will be killed with knives, electrocuted or boiled/skinned alive. But hey – it’s worth it. Because dog meat cures impotence, old age, probably cancer and almost certainly a total f**cking gullibility in the non-effectiveness of traditional medicines.

    Now is the time to repeat that the sign on the illegal dog-meat restaurant has changed from San Miguel to Coke. We must write to coke – not in fury but in asking them to take the sign down and publicly denounce this trade. Coke have not put this sign up, the restuarant has but it is now Coke’s duty to dissociate their name. Let’s see if they care (see below for what to do)

    The restaurant in Baguio that sold us illegal dog meat has now taken down the San Miguel sign and replaced it with a coke sign. Do Coke  Care? We shall see

    Now that I have stopped eating meat I feel a little less of a wanker for criticising others that eat dog. Straightening out my soul is doing some good. Shame it can’t help these poor dogs…for now.

    estimated that well over 10,000 dogs are being killed right now

    Sorry to show you this but it's happening - dogs being boiled alive.

    MORE INFO AND WHAT TO DO:

    MOST IMPORTANT: SPREAD THE WORD ON TWITTER AND FACEBOOK BY LINKING TO THIS BLOG OR ANY OF THE BELOW.

    Then..

    1) Write a letter to Coke (politely please) explaining that they have a sign on the front of a Filipino restaurant that is known to openly sell dog-meat even though it is illegal in the country (attach the below picture and link to my blog). Ask them to take it down and officially condemn the practice of eating dog meat on both humane and health grounds (it is a known rabies risk).

    Email coke direct: https://secure.thecoca-colacompany.com/ssldocs/mail/eQuery_product.shtml

    Facebook coke: https://www.facebook.com/cocacola

    2) Sign a petition here to the UK government  (this is actually to urge the South Korean government to stop farming dogs but its all part of the same fight)

    3) Follow and support NO TO DOG MEAT.com

    5) FB the ‘no to dog meat page’

    1. What a sad post and what sad times for dogs in china these days. The pictures are heartbreaking, especially the last one… This is just SO wrong!
      I hate that woman in the “soooo tasty” photo who is all smiles in front of the dog meat.
      SHAME ON THOSE IN CHINA THAT DO THIS TO DOGS.

    2. This is beyond words, meat trade anywhere is heart breaking but theses pictures and their treatment of dogs make me feel so angry and powerless!
      Is this how man treats their best friends???

      then posted on Coca cola FB page. but it feels so little.
      STOP DOG MEAT TRADE, NOW!!!

    3. One day mankind will stop being so callous and hedonistic. Not sure when but you have to believe it. As it is the solstice offer thanks for those who do good.

    4. I hate people save for the those who do no harm to animals. I wish we could save the animals, and get rid of ANY person who harms an animal.

    5. Message put on Coca-Colas FB page along with the pic of the so called restaurant!
      These people in China are despicable…makes me so sad that there are people out there who can willingly do this to animals and see no problem with it!
      China is a disgusting country along with Korea!

    6. Shame on the Chinese that do this and the rest that allows it. It is sub human. We should all refuse to buy anything made in China. They are a disgrace.

    7. I have used all the links here to protest at this vile custom. No words can describe what I feel. Thankyou for bringing this to our attention.

    8. God, it’s horrible! They do it to cats, too.
      Now look at how poultry is kept and killed in your own country.

    9. Hi Martin
      I have just been introduced to your blog!
      This particular post has made me so sick with anger!
      As a dog lover (ridiculously attached to my four) I can’t even describe my reaction to these pictures. But even though is disturbs me to see this I thank you for posting this, for making people aware of the level of suffering inflicted upon these animals.
      I will be sharing your blog and helping however I can! 🙂
      Thanks for all your doing!!!

    10. thank you Katie!!

    11. I read this just today this is the cruellest thing I’ve ever heard in my entire life, there should be a stop to this right now. instead of putting laws on this and not other things that are completely useless in everyway. This has scared me for life…and when I am old enough I solemnly swear I will protest about this and no matter what the government say or anyone I will stop these murders! :'(

    12. Hi Jessica, tahnks for your support. Can I ask how old you are? I am sure you can already go on some marches or even try and persuade some adults to get involved! Let me know how you get on.

    13. I admire your will to speak out for these poor, unfortunate animals. Although these images are heartbreaking and sickening, it is important not to turn a blind eye to this sadistic torture. There is no basis for torture in modern society as we have come so far. All that know the joy of owning a beloved pet cannot turn their backs and do nothing to stop this unspeakable evil. Basic human decency should compel anyone to stop torture of these gentle dogs for their meat.
