As we known, dogs are people's best friends. However, in Guangxi Yulin, there is a traditional festival called "dog-meat festival". On that day, people in Yulin eat dog meat to celebrate this festival. So should we ban dog meat festival?
As for me, if the Chinesewere still practicing survival skills and ate everything within their grasp for lack of a steady supply of healthy food I could understand their need to eat dog meat, but in this case it is like throwing pearls to the swine as the Yulin festival of dog meat is not about starving poor eating strays; it is gourmands demanding dog meat to satisfy their medicinal needs, aphrodisiacal wishes and to please their taste buds.
It is a matter of choice for people of different country. Korean also eat dog meat. They used to hang them up with hooks in stalls and the choice is yours to chose. In my country, dogs are not eaten. So they multiply and roam around as strays. They rummage dustbins for food. Some has sickness due to lack of human care. They live around the streets and no one to care for them. Dog catchers comes around once in a while to round them up. They will be taken to the centre where will be terminated by injections. All these are not shown to the public.
All in all, I think dog meat festival should be banned.

please keep this inside your classroom.
your argument is weak.

By the way, the whole point of the thread is about the fact that Chinese people DO eat dog meat and the cruel conditions the dogs are kept in.
