Shenzhen becomes first city in China to ban consumption of cats and dogs

Shenzhen, located in the southern Guangdong province, became the first city in China to ban the consumption of cats and dogs this week. The order is part of a new legislation titled 'Shenzhen Special Economic Zone Regulations on the Comprehensive Ban on Wild Animals', passed by the Shenzhen Municipal Peoples Congress. The law, which comes into effect from May 1 later this year, also prohibits the breeding, sale, and consumption of protected wildlife species, including snakes and lizards.

“Dogs and cats as pets have established a much closer relationship with humans than all other animals, and banning the consumption of dogs and cats and other pets is a common practice in developed countries and in Hong Kong and Taiwan," the new legislation passed by the Shenzhen municipal body stated, adding, "This ban also responds to the demand and spirit of human civilization.”

The consumption of the following wild animals and their products is prohibited, according to the legislation:

(1) National key protected wild animals and other terrestrial wild animals that naturally grow and reproduce in the wild environment;

(2) Terrestrial wild animals that are artificially bred and raised.

The statement added that it was also forbidden to hunt the animals and their products for non-edible use such as scientific experiments, public display, pet breeding, medicines, etc.

WELL IT'S A BIT LATE FOR THAT NOW, HUH?

Should have done this about a year ago, before some muppet decided to eat some bat-soup and cause the entire world to go into lock down.
