Taiwan Has Just Become The First Asian Country To Ban Eating Cats And Dogs

It’s official – Taiwan has just become the first Asian country to completely ban dog and cat meat


Those found guilty of eating canine or feline meat can be given a fine of up to NT$250,000 ($8,000)

This positive change can be mostly attributed to changing attitudes in Taiwan towards dogs and cats

As pet ownership in the country is increasing, more people see animals as companions rather than meat

President Tsai Ing-wen might have something to do with it as well

During her election campaign, she positioned herself as an animal lover

Still, even though this ban is a huge victory, the fight to abolish cat and dog meat continues

In China, every year 10,000 doggies are killed in the Yulin dog meat festival
