THE BOKNAL FESTIVAL 😢 .
Everyone is aware of the #YulinFestival in China but not many people are aware of #BokNal in South Korea, which is like #Yulin multiplied by 100! 💔 .
BokNal is when #DogMeat is literally consumed on the 'Dog Days' (hottest days) of summer (this year July 12th, 22nd and August 11th). As with Yulin, the dogs are often boiled, blowtorched, mutilated, electrocuted, skinned alive 😞 .
During the Bok Days, approximately ONE MILLION dogs will be killed to make the traditional delicacy #DogMeatSoup or #Boshintang, which many believe has 'medicinal properties' as well as 'magical properties' to cool down the hot sun and cool down their blood 🙄 This traditional festival is deeply rooted in myth and superstition and needs to end.
I want to help BokNal dogs too so any funds donated to my campaign (link in my @a_lallie bio), from today onwards will go to incredible activist and dog rescuer Nami Kim so please donate if you can and thank you to everyone who has 💕 .
Remember, #Thanksgiving and #Christmas where turkeys are killed and #Easter where lambs are killed are festivals too, just like the Yulin and Boknal festivals. In our our desire to live and our capacity to suffer, a chicken is a turkey is a duck is a pig is a lamb is a cow is a cat is a dog is a human. Please #ChooseCompassion 💚🌱 .
