Dog meat festival in China opens despite ban rumors


Chinese activists have saved 1,000 animals from being slaughtered for the country's 9th annual "Dog Meat Festival," despite rumors that the Festival had been banned. 

Humane Society International reports that most of these animals are stolen pets or strays grabbed off the street who are then beaten, skinned alive, boiled and butchered for their meat. 

About 10 million dogs in China are killed for their meat every year, with as many as 10,000 killed for the Yulin festival.
