Fido for dinner? Taiwan’s Pet Consumption

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.
