The International Fund for Animal Welfare (IFAW) is calling on the British Ambassador in China to intervene and help ban the horrific annual mass consumption of dog meat in Yulin City.

The event in Guangxi Province takes place around the summer solstice on 21 June and it is estimated around 10,000 dogs could be butchered and eaten.

In the weeks before, many thousands of dogs are reportedly transported huge distances in cramped cages, without food and water, to await their gruesome fate.
