A Letter to Mm. Qin Xiaona, Director of Capital Animal Welfare Association (CAWA), as a Response to an Inquiry Sent by Mm. Qin Earlier   

         Yulin City Communist Party Committee and Yulin Municipal Government

 

Mdm. Qin Xiaona,

 

We received your letter of May 17, 2017 to Mr. Peng Qinghua, Party secretary of the Communist Party Committee of Guagnxi Zhuang Autonomous Region. We thank you for your attention to our work. Secretary Peng attached great importance to this issue and made important comments on the letter forwarded by Mdm.We took this issue seriously and had relevant departments to look at the issues you raised. Our response is as follows:

 

I. The so-called “Yulin Dog Meat Festival” Does Not Exist

 

The so-called “Yulin Dog Meat Festival” is not part the folk culture of Yulin. Consumption of dog meat with lychee on the summer solstice day is at best the dietary habit of a small number of people in Yulin. The local governments at various levels have never organized, hosted and participated in the so-called Dog Meat Festival. Yulin city government has made great efforts in promoting healthy dietary habit, encouraging the public to love animals, strengthening the management of dog vaccination, transportation and distribution according to law. In the meantime, food safety is enforced by regulating meat production and sale and by penalizing criminal activities. Currently, Yulin is striving to become a civilized city and food safe city of Guangxi. The city is striving for a higher level of civilization and food safety.

 

We want to reaffirm that Yulin authorities have never hosted, organized and supported the so-called Dog Meat Festival. No celebration in the name of dog meat eating had ever existed in Yulin, a fact which Yulin government has stated many times. Since 2016, the spokeswoman of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs had made it clear to the journalists.

 

II. Food Safety is of great importance to Yulin government

 

In recent years, food safety has always been a key issue to us. We have strictly implemented laws and regulations including Food Security Law in a fair and civilized way to see to it that laws are observed and strictly enforced and that lawbreakers are prosecuted. Healthy eating habit is promoted among the public. Food safety control and law enforcement are further strengthened to protect the fundamental interests, life and property safety and health of the people.

 

First, we have enforced meat safety management. According to the actual situation of meat consumption in Yulin, we have checked meat business service licenses and safety control. The responsible office of each administrative department involved in the whole process of meat consumption from transportation, slaughtering, quarantine, sale, food procession and so on are clearly defined to ensure that every link of meat consumption is controlled by designated person in each region. Law enforcers patrol and randomly check  meat traders (dog meat traders included) in the downtown markets this year. During the summer solstice, we inspected different agricultural product markets for 13 times, dog meat traders for 46 times and restaurants selling dog meat 153 times with 13 been ordered to stop operation for improvement. 

 

Secondly, we have made efforts to promote civilized eating habit. We make improvement demands on food businesses. …… By the first half of this year, more than 2200 sets of propaganda materials were released in the downtown food serving units on popular scientific info including “civilized dining”, “civilized diet” and food safety, etc.

 

Thirdly, market regulation is strengthened. We carried out inspection of the trading markets of livestock and livestock products to combat illegal private slaughtering operations for the purpose of maintaining a stable and orderly running of the meat markets. During the summer solstice, 5,807 (persons and times) law enforcers and 1,353 patrol vehicles (and times) were dispatched. 24,501 business operators (and times) in 601 markets (and times) and 864 supermarkets (and times) were inspected. Dog meat traders were issued warning on 77 occasions. 

 

Forth, control of animal transportation and quarantine is strengthened. Animal checking stations are set up on the main roads (highway entries and exits included) in Yulin to inspect the animals and animal products in transportation. Illegal activities such as the transportation and selling of products without qualified quarantine formalities are handled according to the law so as to effectively stop the entry of live dogs without certificates into Yulin. In this year, 588 teams (and times) with 7,759 people (and times) on quarantine inspection missions had been dispatched with over 7,600 copies of policy information materials distributed. By the first half of this year, 95,000 rabies vaccines were executed on 88,800 dogs.

 

 

Your suggestions and advices to our work are much appreciated.

 

With best wishes,

 

CPC Committee of Yulin

 

The People’s Government of Yulin
