Cages of dogs are delivered to an unenviable fate at a market in Yulin - a long tradition in the city.

Yulin's dog meat festival deaf to critics

The annual festival involving savouring the delights of dog meat hotpot, lychees and strong liquor on the Summer Solstice is a cherished tradition among Yulin locals. Thousands of diners are expected to crowd food streets and enjoy the feast. Animal protection activists estimate more than 10,000 dogs are killed during the festival.
