He captioned the photo with a powerful indictment against the Yulin Dog Meat Festival, which takes place annually in Guangxi, China. "The dogs are tortured to 'make the meat tastier.' They are also skinned and boiled alive. It's not a food festival. It's Hell," he wrote.
Unfortunately, too many dogs are victims to this belief. Take, for example, Chi Chi, the dog who lost all her paws in the dog meat industry in South Korea. She was recently rescued and now lives with a loving family in Arizona, but most dogs in the meat trade aren't so lucky.
Ten thousand dogs were killed in one weekend at last year's festival, but Humane Society International (HSI) worked with local activists to help save hundreds of dogs.
