A group of Chinese dog lovers leaded by Chinese action artist Pian Shan Kong came to a dog meat market in Yulin City of Guangxi campaigning against eating dog. Pian Shan Kong even knelt down in front of the dead dogs in the market, confessing sins and apologizing to the dogs.

A group of Chinese dog lovers leaded by Chinese action artist Pian Shan Kong came to a dog meat market in Yulin City of Guangxi campaigning against eating dog. Pian Shan Kong even knelt down in front of the dead dogs in the market, confessing sins and apologizing to the dogs.

It is said that the residents in Yulin of Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region have the tradition of eating dog meat. The dog meat is especially popular among local residents in summer.

The eating of dog meat in China dates back thousands of years and it remains socially acceptable. The meat is especially popular in Guangdong and Guangxi. When food is scarce, dogs are eaten as an emergency food source around China.

To say that people in China eat dogs is something of a stereotype. Sure, some still do, but these days, more and more Chinese are buying dogs as pets and treating them like beloved family members. A growing movement against consumption of cat and dog meat has gained attention from people in mainland China. Chinese animal lovers have since 2005 organized many times of well-publicized protest against dog and cat eating.

A recent case occurred in April 2012 in southwestern China's Yunnan Province. More than 500 dogs destined for the slaughterhouse were saved when the truck that was transporting them was intercepted by about 200 animal lovers in China. And in 2011 Chinese media reported a similar dog rescue on a Beijing highway, when about 200 volunteers saved 580 dogs from death.
