A truly horrible tradition! Why isn't the West speaking up?

There is a ghastly practice in China known as the "dog meat festival."   Every year at least 10,000 dogs are slaughtered to supply meat for this  hair-raising social tradition.  This year, an animal rights activist  managed to rescue two cute furry puppies that were locked in a cage to  be slaughtered for meat.  Although many were killed and eaten, at least  two were saved.
