This festival is also called dog meat festival. While taking his pet on walk, suddenly he stopped on a food joined to have some snacks. In the meantime, his curious Frenchie started to explore places around him and he cam far away from his owner.

Some people caught the Frenchie and caged him since in the cruel dog meet festival, the demand of dogs remain unbelievably high. Trembling in fear, the Frenchie started to cry.
