A Chinese performance artist apologized to the dogs slaughtered to be
eaten by human.
Last June 21, 2012 which was Haji(夏至), a performance
artist named Sankung(片山空) along with approximately 10 animal advocates
staged a special performance at a dog meat market in Yulin(玉林), China.
Sitting on a red banner with writing that reads "I sincerely apologize to
the animals on behalf of mankind." Sankung bowed with apology towards the
dogs slaughtered at a dog meat market.
On June 22, after the
performance, Sankung sent message on Weibo(微博), a Chinese's version of
twitter, "Cats and dogs carcasses were piled up, the ground was soaked with
blood and the shops were busy."
He added "Watching this scene on-site, I
couldn't help myself but to apologize."
This performance by Sankung
is his 18th and he has been travelling around the country staging the
performance of apologizing to animals for the last 3 years since 2010. Last
winter of December 2011, ahead of the winter solstice (冬至), he visited
Guizhou(貴州), city of Guiyang(貴陽) and performed an art of going into a cage
naked to appeal against dog meat consumption.
Meanwhile, in Yulin(玉林)
where Sankung staged the performance art, June 21 "Haji" is referred to as
"Dog Eating Day". In Yulin, at this time of the year it is known that on
average more than 10,000 dogs per day gets slaughtered. As the photos of dog
meat vendors' cruelty such as tying up dog's mouth with wire and brutally
beating the dogs with broom stick spread on the internet, public opinion
against the dog meat consumption was formed.
