Yes, this should be banned. Dogs and cats, bears and monkeys are not for food. It's cruel and cannot be justified! I thought China was already eating too many unusual things that normally is not done anywhere else.

But to eat dogs and cats ... that's like cannibalism. There is enough killing already of whales and other precious animals. I do hope this can be stopped, somehow.

Should eating dogs be banned in China?

An animal activist (C) kneels down as she offers to buy a dog from a vendor (2nd R) to stop it from being eaten ahead of the annual dog meat festival in Yulin, Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region June 20, 2014. The festival, scheduled on June 21 as in previous years to mark the summer solstice, in southern Chinese city of Yulin, has drawn fierce protests from animal welfare groups and pet owners, who urge the local government to ban the long-standing tradition. According to animal welfare activists, about 10,000 dogs will be consumed on that day, Xinhua News Agency reported. [Photo/Agencies]
