Yulin Dog Meat Festival CONTINUES!!! | China Uncensored


On this episode of China Uncensored, it’s that time of year again… time to walk the dog! Not like that! Hi, welcome to China Uncensored, I’m your host Chris Chappell. Every year, there’s a dog-eating festival in southern China. You may have heard of it: The Yulin Dog Meat Festival. But back in May, Chinese animal rights activists announced that after many years of protests, local officials had finally told them that this year, they were banning dog meat sales ahead of the festival. Victory! And that’s it! Thanks for watching this episode of… just kidding. It turns out there’s been a bit of a misunderstanding. What officials actually meant was that t he festival would continue as normal, dog meat sales unbanned. But don’t worry. officials and the dog meat vendors reached a satisfactory agreement that should satisfy the millions of people around the world who object to the festival. “Vendors and officials reached a compromise setting a limit of two dogs displayed per stall.” See, a two-dog limit is almost as good as a ban, right? Only two dogs per… Okay, so that limit was ignored. But at least some vendors changed their signs, so instead of dog meat, it said tasty meat. Much better. Calling something tasty definitely makes people think it’s tasty. About ten thousand dogs are killed every year for the Yulin Dog Meat festival. And every year, it causes a huge international outcry, because, well, puppies are only cute when they’re dressed as food. But perhaps you’re like my favorite state-run media, and ask what’s the big deal with eating dog? I mean, Americans slaughter almost 10 million pigs per month! This is a case of us American Imperialists, “demanding non-Westerners change their eating
habits, because they think their cultures and feelings deserve more respect than others. Such a condescending attitude is not comfortable.” Well, Global Times, it’s not so much the fact that they’re eating dog meat that bothers most people. It’s that the dogs are tortured and boiled alive, because “there is a belief that the adrenaline released through the pain makes the meat more tender and provides health benefits.” Right. But even if you believe in the supposed health benefits of eating tortured animals, you still might want to stay away. Because most of these dogs are slaughtered in disgustingly unsanitary conditions, and a lot of them are extremely sick. So yes, we American imperialists, with our humane… What’s that shelley? Do I know how factory farmed chickens are
killed? Electrified water? Throat-cutting machines? I’m…never eating drumsticks again. Well, point taken about factory farming, but at least animals in factory farms aren’t tortured for the specific purpose of making them tastier. But more importantly, there’s this one other fact— and I don’t think this happens in America. “About 90 percent of the dogs are stolen on the streets and stolen from people’s yards so a lot of the dogs that we rescue have actual collars on.” Can’t we all agree that stealing other people’s pets and eating them is deeply uncool? But before you start accusing Chinese people of being dog-eating barbarians, I have to tell you: Dog-eating is really not mainstream Chinese
culture. In fact, Chinese people are some of the loudest voices calling for an end to the Yulin Dog Meat festival. In fact, throughout most of Chinese history, eating dog was considered distasteful and not at all common practice. A lot of Chinese people really love dogs, and in China today, pet ownership is on the rise. So it’s little wonder people are kind of upset about their pets being stolen, boiled alive, and then eaten. Now you’d think the local government ought to do something about this. Well, remember: local officials are the ones who came up with the compromise that vendors could display, at most, two dogs— a regulation that wasn’t even being adhered
to. And what about all the protests? The government’s response to protests has been to either crackdown on activists or simply ignore the problem. “What has the Yulin city government done? They covered it up. Firstly they don’t mention this extremely sensitive word anymore, and secondly, they haven’t prevented the killing of dogs or selling their meat. They just require that businesses selling dog meat in the market cover up the words, ‘dog meat’ on their signs.” Ah yes, if it doesn’t say “dog meat” on the signs, then no one will know that the meat at the “dog meat,” excuse me, “tasty meat” festival is actually dog. It’s a foolproof plan. But each year, the Yulin Dog Meat festival brings controversy and tons of bad publicity to Yulin. So why doesn’t the local government stop
it? Well, because it relates to an even greater
issue the Communist Party wants to cover up: poverty. Yulin is in Guangxi— one of China’s poorest regions. There is a huge number of people who can’t find jobs and many families struggle to make ends meet. According to The Independent, “many of the dog meat sellers are peasants or farmers on a low income. These people rely on dog meat to raise money for their families… the festival draws in big money for local meat traders.” So for these people, the choice is grinding, inescapable poverty, or stealing people’s pets and making some money at the Yulin Dog Meat Festival. A mainstay of Party propaganda is that the Chinese regime has liberated people from poverty. The Party definitely does not want the desperately poor rural masses questioning that. But how do local officials keep up the money-making festival, but get rid of the bad publicity? Well, local officials came up with a briliant plan: They tell animal rights activists on the down-low that they’re going to ban the sale of dog
meat. That makes headlines. Then Yulin gets lots of good publicity that the dog meat festival is over! And then once the protests die down, bam! It’s hot dog season. Hot dog season… wait a minute, I’ve got an idea! One that could save Yulin’s economy and stop the dog meat industry. What if instead of the Yulin Dog Meat Festival, they changed it to the Yulin Hot Dog Festival. Locals can stop killing pets and start making sausages. Nathan’s could sponsor it. And they’d get tons of great publicity. Think about it. Yulin: Home of the World’s Biggest Hot Dog. And even we American imperialists wouldn’t be able to say anything bad about the festival, since we have our own sacred hot dog traditions, passed down through tens of years.

  1. I know hot dog comes from pigs and pigs are killed in the most cruel way, but boiling an animal alive????????? Come on!

  2. Not just boiling them alive also cutting paws off hanging them slowly crusifing them beating them to death the list goes on!! I DONT find it funny! time for jokes this is NOT it!

  3. People that don't like this which I definitely don't. Just stop eating meat . I've decided to stop I may still eat chicken for awhile but stopping beef pork ect all those animals had life and people are constantly killing them for food. However animals kill and hunt other animals for food it's natural and that won't stop so I guess humans hunt animals to eat meat aswell just we have been use to dogs and cats as pets that it seems disturbing to us. However what about pigs cows ect are we blinded by their pain because we're use to it that it's normal? Theirs really no way to justify either one. Only way to change it is by changing what you eat or what you hunt to survive because we all can survive on fruits and veggies.

  4. I love dogmeat baby. Let the carnage begin. Its tasty. The braised dog I ate was cooked in a clay pot along with huge cloves of garlic and chillies, it was mildly spiced with a splash of soy sauce and I detected a hint of cinnamon or anise in the mix.

    Braised on high heat in the clay pot, the dog was cooked so the chunks of meat were extremely tender and slipped right off the bone.

    If Kobe beef is the superlative beef of the world, dog is the crème de la crème of all meat!

    It was so tasty and delicious that if it wasn’t for the “psychological thought of eating dog”, everyone would probably love it.

    After eating dog meat, beef tastes flavorless.

  5. all the meat eaters wanting this festival to end, sincerely, do not want to sound rude but cant help it, fuck outta here. your voice dosent count.

  6. I'm totally disgusted and deeply disappointed that this superpower nation still allows the slaughtering of pets like this. Maybe the CCP shoulld donate some money to these poor regions to the south so they are incentivized to halt this Annual Dog Meat Festival.

  7. We should save Tibet, Inner Mongolia and East Turkestan from Chiniese bullying. I'm so sorry for them. I can't even imagine what can a dog eating population do to innocent minorities.

  8. Just wanna point out that that lady who said they steal the dogs off the streets and from there backyards was not talking about the Chinese people. She was talking about a completely different topic and it's fucked up that this guy cut the bit that he wanted to make it seem like Chinese people where doing it..

  9. Dogs aren't the master race I mean like cows and fishes get tortured brutally before it's served on a dish
    +if you think dogs are the kings you're head's just like Hitler and Mussolini

  10. china despierta no se coman a esos perros son seres vivos y se comen ojala que el presidente se da cuenta reacionen

  11. We are as bad as the Chinese, actually worse. We breed Billions upon billions of animals into the world to torture and kill.

  12. They eat dog for a reason,it said in china that eating dogs in summer brings luck ang good health but they eat dogs for just a belief!!?China must be ashamed for they’re culture,eating fetus eating dogs cats?!what the heck

  13. this is so terrible and your making jokes about this how bout if it was u getting tortured and hurt how would you feel I feel sorry for you

  14. 🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮

  15. Wrong. They torture pigs (as well as cows, chickens, lambs, geese, and any other animal you can think of) in the U.S. The video I've attached specifically shows pigs being tortured and boiled alive. There's millions of videos of this online, by now it's common sense. Not saying I agree with the dog eating "culture" but anyone who eats meat is just being hypocritical. Especially when suggesting some kind of "hot dog" celebration; pigs have been shown to be just as affectionate and intelligent as dogs. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2huZYr0kuBE

  16. So I moved to Dongguan, China to teach in an International School. There’s a “mutton hot pot” restaurant literally a minute away from my high-rise in the backroads down the hill. We tried the lamb hot pot and saw them chop up the lamb. As we were eating we noticed some of the meat the guy was chopping was a dog’s leg! Then I saw a dog’s jawbone! We were like “hell nah!” and asked for the bill and got the heck outta there lickety split!!!

  17. They eat everything except from shit , check out link below:

  18. EVERYONE PLEASE STOP CALLING CHINA BAD AND CRAZY

    my Mother is from China and in the one time in the winter her family had no food and they had to eat a dog
    she did not eat it again and her Father loves pets he had cats and birds a lot of dogs they love pets so please stop calling China is crazy for me yes I think it’s not good they were bred to be with humans so there are good people in China if you think there are actually nice people in 🇨🇳

  19. Yikes. Trying to shut down someone's culture sounds fun, everyone. Should we just shut down hamburger joints in USA to make you comfortable?

  20. Ok we torture animals in gruesome ways. Lets make cannabilism legal. Make it legal i will serve you my friends artries

  21. Hey America! I thought you have amount of nuclear weapons against your enemies? maybe you should start hitting China first to wiped them out of Asia ,so that those small countries can give fresh space to occupied it.

  22. I find this quite disgusting, yes I know if you eat a cow what's the difference but tell tell me this, how intelligent are dogs and if you say, what about pigs dogs have helped humanity for eons( okay about 30,000 years ) but you think we should hold them higher up?

  23. “I love animals, stop eating dogs, dogs are cute, dogs are our friends. Oh, yeah, I love eating steaks, I love eating chicken, they're tasty. What? Cruel? Not at all. Chicken and ox are not our friend, they are not cute. It's nothing wrong. Yes, I love animals.”

That's why we rely on your support on the crowd funding website Patreon. Visit patreon.com/chinauncensored to find out all the ways you can help keep China, uncensored!

  25. At first I'm quite intrigued on the situation of dog meat industry in China to watch this, after hearing 90% China dog meat source coming from theft and roadside, seriously I start to feel skeptical, and further hearing saying dog is boiled alive for better taste, haha is it your opinion or fact? Maybe just show the video of dog boiled alive if you want some respect. This is just a plain joker made comedy show

  26. 我们快饿死 你们吃着好的 不用 上班 而吃这些都是被压迫的社会底层 谁关心他们 只有批评

  27. Those people are sick and perverted bastards 🤬🤬🤬 Stop that inhumane Festival !!! In a country what doesn't acceppt human rights there is no help for animal cruelty. That's why we must sign again and again all petitions against it…I don't trust asians, sorry… It's known they have many disgusting rites and they eat everything…I can't trust anybody who let animals suffer or kill them. There are enough chinese people maybe we start eating them…

  28. If it's illegal or banned why is it still going on. They need to have stiffer fines & penalties. They should also be charged with burgelry & or theft. Taking & stealing people's beloved pets.
    Poverty is no excuse. How would you like your child to be taken off the street
    Tortured beaten then eaten? You are barbaric and hateful society. To take the innocence of another. Anyone with a dog in there posession should have a lisence to have said dog with a commitment to take care of it. That goes for Cats ,& horses too. By the way I'm not a hipocrate I'm a vegan and grow my own.

  29. I love salads, & I love animals but to cuddle, hug,& love, not to eat. To show respect & admiration for what the great spirit has created.

  30. No one should visit China, Korea North or South, Vietnam, Indonesia. They should not give these people one more cent
    Until these practices are abolished.

  31. Everyone of you who participate in the in this Yulin festival as well as all those through the world , including the officials who cover it up and look the other way.
    Are all ugly people with black hearts🖤 that don't deserve to be on the same planet as those gentle creature who protect you from the very thing you are putting them through.

  32. It more about how they kill the dogs, live, burn, boil alive……they cannot be human beings doing this – 'animals' don't behave like that so they are just vermin! And could you not have gotten a more serious person to host the video. He's like a jester.

  33. Sorry just by reading the title I feel sick can't watch it just too cruel I am a HKer I am totally against all those so called tradition which is merely some unfounded shocking treatment to defenseless animals. All these should be stopped. All animals should be free and be respected. But giving the way the commis treats their people this is sadly not much hope that they will do much about animal protection. Poor little souls. May God help all animals and protect them. God bless them all

  34. Cats and dogs are carnivores. You can tell by the position of their eyes. They are at the front to better see their prey. So they eat meat and you cannot eat a carnivore for your own health. You get their diseases from it, even if they are slaughtered and their meat is prepared.
    Pigs, goats, rabbits and cows are herbivores, they only eat plants. Their eyes are on the side of their head to see more broadly where their predator could be. You can eat those animals.

  35. 3:31 Yes. Turns out most Chinese don't like having their pets stolen and tortured and perpetuation of an inaccurate stereotype as well as a "cultural festival" less than 10 years old started by a almost dead industry deciding to band together and claim "tradition" to survive.

  36. If this festival were for Pig eating, then it is fines since Pigs are for eating and for farming, but seriously? Dogs? Dogs are pets and a part of one’s family, why eat a Pet when you can have a big fish or Farm Steak?
