Arrow Dog eat Dog

As the Yulin Dog Meat Festival‪ nears, animal rights campaigners have once again started online petitions against the slaughter of several thousands of cats and dogs..

All living things fear being beaten with clubs..All living things fear being put to death..Putting oneself in the place of the other,let no one kill nor cause another to kill...Dhammapada 129...

Despite reports that the festival has been banned by the government, cats and dogs' meat remain on the menu of several restaurants in Yulin ahead of this year's solstice on 21 June..., comrades, what is the nature of this life of ours? Let us face it: our lives are miserable, laborious, and short. We are born, we are given just so much food as will keep the breath in our bodies, and those of us who are capable of it are forced to work to the last atom of our strength; and the very instant that our usefulness has come to an end we are slaughtered with hideous cruelty..Remember, comrades, your resolution must never falter...
