To Party Secretary Peng Qinghua: 

Please end the mass slaughter and consumption of dogs for the summer solstice event commonly known as the "Dog Meat Festival" held each year in Yulin.

I was shocked to learn that thousands of dogs, many of them stolen pets, are slaughtered for their meat to be served during the event. Not only will the dogs suffer enormously during the arduous and long journey to Yulin, they will then be subjected to being beaten and ultimately slaughtered while fully conscious.

In addition to animal welfare concerns, the mass consumption of dogs in a short period of time also threatens the health and safety of the public by potentially spreading rabies, a horrifying disease that is already an ongoing problem in the Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region.

Please do the right thing and end the event for good. By doing so, you will show yourself to be a leader concerned with the well-being of both people and animals, and will earn international commendation for your progressive action.

Thank you.
