, June 21, 2014

An animal activist kneels down as she offers to buy a dog from a vendor to stop it from being eaten ahead of the annual dog meat festival at Yulin in the autonomous Chinese region of  Guangxi Zhuang on June 20. The festival, scheduled on June 21 as in previous years to mark the summer solstice, in southern Chinese city, 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.-Reuters
