Dog and cat fur used for bags, toys and clothes in China.

Voiceless Friends

In view of the shocking investigation into slaughterhouses and dog meat markets, carried out by the animal rights organisation Animal Equality, I’ve been able to see first-hand the terrible physical and psychological torture these animals are subjected to.

More than 10 millions dogs and 4 million cats are murdered each year for their meat and fur in China. The cruelty of this practice is completely unjustifiable.

There are millions of us around the world who consider that the massacre of dogs and cats for human consumption or for their fur is unacceptable and I therefore urge China’s government to prohibit and eradicate this cruel trade.

Yours sincerely,

Day 1 (THURSDAY 4 APRIL 2013)

Visit to the Dong Hua Men market, Beijing

The Beijing authorities required that the city’s restaurants sell no cat or dog meat for the duration of the 2008 Olympic games. Following the Olympics, the consumption of these types of animals diminished and now, there are few places left in the city that serve these types of meat. The Dong Hua Men market, in the centre of Beijing, is one of them. We found two stalls which offered us dog meat by saying to us, in English, « dog, dog ». Another stallholder taught us how to prepare cat meat with flour, whilst imitating the meowing sound of a cat.
