I just read the article, Tamson, just before your post

"Dog and Cats OFF Chinese Menu"

DOG and cat meat - age-old delicacies in China - could be off the menu in the food-loving nation under its first law against animal abuse, state press said today.

People who eat either animal, both of which are viewed as promoting bodily warmth, would face fines of up to 5000 yuan ($816) and up to 15 days in jail if the law is passed, the Chongqing Evening News said.

It said "organizations'' involved in the practice would be fined from 10,000 to 500,000 yuan. The report gave no other details.

The law has been at the drafting stage over the past year and the report did not make clear when the legislation was expected to become law.

China's rubber-stamp legislature meets in March but draft legislation can often take years to be approved, AFP reported.

Cruelty to animals and the raising of cat and dog meat for dinner tables remains widespread in China, despite growing consciousness over animal welfare.

Restaurants touting "fragrant meat,'' a euphemism for dog, can be seen in cities throughout the country, where the fondness for dogs as pets co-exists with a taste for canine meat.

Cat meat is most popular in parts of southern China and there are regular reports of animal lovers attempting to block trucks carrying hundreds or even thousands of cats to meat markets and eventually dinner tables there.

I really dont see what the problem with eating Cats and Dogs is.  If they are raised for said purpose then it should be allowed.  

The issue is with wild animals that are endangered.  Sharks, some turtles, and monkeys.

Dogs and Cats, hey whatever floats your boat.  I have had dog several times, Its not so bad in SK.  In China I was disappointed, but I have no problem with other people having it.  Even sharing a table with people who want to order it.  As for Cats, I dont know if I would want to try any.  But should it be illegal?  In my mind, if 1% of Chinese people want to eat dogs and cats, it shouldn't be illegal.  Minority rights.
