The animal Activist community is celebrating! I just saw a video on Fox News about a recent law change in Taiwan that could be considered a great victory.
There is a reason people joke about restaurants serving cat and dog meat. Pet consumption is a real thing. It really happens! Not just in Asia, it also happens on our side of the world.
I have visited Central America many times and find that the market place can be dangerous. Not just because of unsanitary conditions, or criminal presence; but also because you don’t always know what you are buying. Even the most trained eyes can be fooled under the right circumstances.
Taiwan has just made a big step towards ending pet consumption in their country.
Fox News reported that Taiwan has passed an amendment making it Illegal to sell and/or consume cat and dog meat with penalties for offenders of the new amendment with up to 2 years in prison and a fine of up to 2 Million Taiwan dollars ($65K US). Those caught trading or consuming the illegal meats can be fined up to $8K US.
For all those who love their furry friends and prefer not to have them eaten, you can feel a little bit happier, and celebrate this move towards sparing the dog and cat communities.

"Buying or selling a house it the Austin area? I recommend Violet Leff , she is a first rate real estate agent. Violet worked with me to sell my home in South Austin. She had it sold the day it went active, but due to unforeseen circumstances we were not able to complete the sale and had to temporarily take the property off the market. During that time, Violet checked the property regularly, made sure the yard was taken care of and was in constant communication with me. Once we were able to put the property back on the market, Violet held a weekend of open houses and the property went under contract immediately as a result. I received a good offer very close to list price and a quick close of escrow. Call Violet, you will not find a more service oriented real estate agent."
