Chinese street vendors have been caught on camera butchering and skinning dogs as customers looked on at a popular meat market in northern China.
The shocking footage was released by animal rights organisation Humane Society International less than two weeks before the Yulin Dog Meat Festival, which is set to take place in another province in southern China on the summer solstice.
The dogs were believed to be stolen pets or owned rural dogs, said the organisation.
