Animal activists hold a dog which was rescued from a dog meat trader and a rescued stray dog, before their gathering against Yulin Dog Meat Festival in BeijingBy Joseph Campbell YULIN, China (Reuters) – China's southern city of Yulin began its annual dog meat festival on Tuesday despite opposition from animal rights activists, as residents complained of new government measures to keep the festival low key.
