Ancient Chinese dog-eating festival cancelled
For the first time in 600 years history, the residents of Qianxi, China, are not going to celebrate the dog-eating festival after the public voiced their strong discontent on the Internet.
The Chinese festival 'celebrates' an invading army that killed all the dogs in the Chinese town of Qianxi to avoid being caught by barking dogs. Annually over 15.000 dogs are being slaughtered and then eaten, just as the ancient army did once they won the town of Qianxi. After photos of the last year festival were published, they received a strong online response. The Chinese government finally had to ban the event.
