Every year 18 million dogs are killed for their meat, while 10,000 cats are killed per day for their meat in South East Asia. Yeller: The Secret World of Dog and Cat Meat, is the feature length documentary about the dog and cat meat trade within South East Asia, which aims to bring about awareness of the cruelty inflicted upon these animals, along with solutions to ending this cruel and inhumane industry.
The documentary also tries to better inform the Western public about Asian culture and their long history with eating dog meat, while also debunking many myths about the cultural traditions associated with Ancient Chinese and South Korean history, as a lot of this has been created by the dog meat trade.
The message this film aims to bring to everyone is one of understanding and cooperation. As there has been a lot of angry and hateful racial slurs aimed toward the Eastern public by many uninformed and caring animal activists; which has not only made matters worst for the animals and made it a lot more difficult for animal welfare organizations to talk with politicians about solutions to ending this industry, but these racist views are also highly unfounded and misinformed because it is the Chinese and South Korean citizens who are risking the most to achieve a lot for the welfare of these animals.
So we believe this film is very important for both the Eastern and the Western public to watch, in order to gain a better and more informed knowledge of this industry and to understand what they can do to improve these animals lives and how to work with the local or international animal welfare organizations in order to end this cruel and inhumane industry!
