IMAGE DISTRIBUTED FOR HUMANE SOCIETY INTERNATIONAL - A dog waits to be sold for meat in a market in Yulin in south China's Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region Sunday June 23, 2013. Animal-protection organization Humane Society International campaigned for an end to the festival, garnering signatures from supporters in opposition to the inhumane annual event. Many of the dogs caught up in the trade in dogs for meat consumption are stolen pets. The signatures were delivered to officials in Yulin. (AP Images for Humane Society International) CHINA OUT less
