Ban Cruel Dog Fighting Festival

Target: Chinese Minister of Culture, Luo Shugang

Goal: Ban cruel dog fighting competition in which dogs are made to fight each other to the death.

Over 40 dogs were recently forced to fight each other in a cruel tradition during the Lantern Festival in the Shanxi Province of China. Tortured into becoming aggressive, the dogs are trapped in an enclosure and pitted against each other. Photos show dogs ripping out pieces of each other’s faces and bodies as spectators cheer and capture the fight on their phones.

Each brutal fight continues until one of the dogs is dead. According to reports, anyone can enter their dog and the owner of the winning dog takes home a mug and a packet of cigarettes.

Alongside the cruel dog eating Yulin festival, this is another instance of the Chinese government allowing dogs to undergo extreme cruelty in the name of tradition. China desperately needs stricter animal cruelty laws in order to protect innocent beings from these horrid practices.

Sign this petition urging Chinese authorities to ban dog fighting and ensure these cruel events no longer take place.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Minister Shugang,

I was shocked to learn that dog fighting is still legal in China. Recently, news media have reported the horrific cruelty that takes place at a bloody dog fighting festival during the Lantern Festival in the Shanxi Province as well as other parts of the country. Tortured into becoming aggressive, dogs are forced to fight each other to the death.

Extreme cruelty to animals is never acceptable and should not be allowed to remain part of a country’s traditions. China is a country rich in non-lethal cultural traditions and does not need to continue to allow bloody and inhumane events to take place.

I urge you to stand up for innocent animals and ensure dog fighting is made illegal.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

  1. SHOULD WE EXPECT ANY THING DIFFERENT FROM SUCH EVIL PEOPLE, IF ONLY.

  2. Yes, the Asian countries are notorious for animal abuse and eating everything in their wake ! Most Asian countries have NO regard for animals . Remember, the United States the country we live in also has Dog Fighting ! There are some states that the insidious under ground Dog Fighting rings are running rampied . Pit Bulls are being bred into the ground for this sick so called ” SPORT “. This animal abuse needs to have special teams that will infiltrate and put on lookers and formers in prison !

  3. SUGGEST these ASIAN COUNTRIES RE-EDUCATE their DIMWITS or/and
    we BOYCOTT any contact…………..

    Just another reason to boycott Chinese products. If they’re not fighting dogs to death, they’re torturing and eating them. Just. Simply. Disgusting. Dogs have more of a soul than these people do.

    There are atrocities and incredible animal abuses in many countries including ours, but I don’t believe it’s celebrated and allowed by law to the extent of China, a supposed ‘modern’ country.

    The Chinese citizens that believe in the humane treatment of animals are ignored by the abusers and the government alike.

  5. How sad that any human would want to engage in this sick sadistic behavior. This is a sick segment of our population. Due to people allowing animal abuse and fostering a cruel horrible consequence violence and sick criminals who treat living creature like trash. Bad for our world, when kindness and love are trumped by sickness torture and hate. Please chose love.

    China again!
    I wouldn’t cry if a plague wiped out that part of the world.
