Taiwan Becomes First Asian Country To Ban Eating Cat And Dog Meat


Taiwan has become the first country in Asia to pass legislation banning the consumption of cats and dogs. In a sweeping amendment to animal protection laws, the sale, purchase, and possession of dog or cat carcasses was also banned.   Enough is enough this should have been done a long time ago.

The move follows the country's capital Taipei, which has already banned the sale of dog meat. But activists found evidence to suggest that this local law was largely being ignored and offenders left unprosecuted.
