8 Billion Animals are Killed for Food Every Year in the UK!

The Yulin Dog Meat Festival
This celebrating of the summer solstice goes on every year, but this year there seemed to be more of an outcry than before.
There were petitions to ban it, calls for rescuing the dogs and generally people losing their minds because some poor wee dogs were being killed and eaten. In the west dogs are seen as pets or ‘man’s best friend’, we are horrified that someone would kill our pets and have them for dinner. But we do it to pigs, cows and sheep without a moments thought.
