Animal rights activists protested as an annual tradition took place in Yulin, China: a dog meat festival.

Held every year to mark the summer solstice, the festival sees the city, in the southern Guangxi province, filled with revellers who feast on the meat with lychee wine.

According to the South China Morning Post, animal rights activists estimate 10,000 dogs will be killed during the festival.

In many Asian countries eating dog meat is believed to be good for the health, and boost male fertility.
