(Shanghaiist) Taiwan is close to officially making the eating of dog and cat meat illegal, in an animal-friendly step not likely to be replicated on the other side of the strait.
On Tuesday, the Legislative Yuan approved a landmark amendment to Taiwan's Animal Protection Act, banning the selling, purchasing, consumption or possession of dog or cat meat with offenders facing fines of between NT$50,000 (US$1600) to NT$250,000 (US$8100) and having photos of themselves publicized, according to Focus Taiwan News.
The amendment was sponsored by Kuomintang legislator Wang Yu-min who said that the new regulation was the first of its kind in Asia. Back in 2001, the island first banned the sale of dog and cat meat.

This appears to be a capitulation to Western junk values and sentiments. Are they doing anything to protect vulnerable species ?

According to a Swiss newspaper report in 1996, the Swiss rural cantons of Appenzell and St. Gallen are known to have had a tradition of eating dogs, curing dog meat into jerky and sausages, as well as using the lard for medicinal purposes...
