First Chinese city to ban consumption of cats and dogs

Shenzhen becomes first Chinese city to ban consumption of cats and dogs.

Shenzhen, in southeastern China, has become the first city in the country to ban the consumption of cats and dogs, the government announced Thursday.

Under new rules which will come into effect May 1, the government said it will be illegal to eat animals raised as pets.

In February, following the coronavirus outbreak, China passed a law to ban the consumption of wild animals.

Now Shenzhen will prohibit the consumption of state-protected wild animals and other terrestrial wild animals taken from the wild, as well as captive-bred and farmed terrestrial wild species. In addition, the consumption of animals raised as pets, such as cats and dogs will also be banned.

Animals that can be consumed include pig, cattle, sheep, donkey, rabbit, chicken, duck, goose, pigeon, quail, as well as aquatic animals who are not banned by other laws or regulations.

"If convicted, they will be subjected to a fine of 30 times of the wild animal's value, if the animal is above the value of 10,000CNY [$1400 USD]," announced authorities.

The coronavirus outbreak is thought to have started at a wildlife market in the Chinese city of Wuhan, and authorities have acknowledged they need to bring the lucrative wildlife industry under control if it is to prevent another outbreak.
However ending the trade will be hard. The cultural roots of China's use of wild animals run deep, not just for food but also for traditional medicine, clothing, ornaments and even pets.

This isn't the first time Chinese officials have tried to contain the trade. In 2003, civets -- mongoose-type creatures -- were banned and culled in large numbers after it was discovered they likely transferred the SARS virus to humans. The selling of snakes was also briefly banned in Guangzhou after the SARS outbreak.

CNN's Ben Westcott and Shawn Deng and journalist Anna Kam contributed to this report.

Great news, hopefully they will extend across the whole country.

No such luck for the bears and tigers then. Still under threat for 'medical' purposes.

Re: First Chinese city to ban consumption of cats and dogs

I've been part of many campaign groups try to get this cruelty stopped for nearly 40 years. And still it will go on. I'm pleased they've made a start though. ( yes I know many eat cow etc etc ) but we don't throw them or dogs and cats etc in boiling water to which some get pulled out alive ready to be skinned. Just how do humans allow that. Don't tell me.

Re: First Chinese city to ban consumption of cats and dogs

We are going to make a great effort not to buy anything made in China nor will we be going to Chinese restaurants. They are pure evil in the way the treat animals and some humans too.

The Chinese that are in uk for instance many particularly the middle and younger generation are here because they left their homes in China for our way of life. I would still continue to eat Chinese food just not in China and several other places.
It's so difficult not to have something that was made in China but I make a good effort.

Re: First Chinese city to ban consumption of cats and dogs

I am very sceptical that all ills are justly blamed on the Chinese

Certainly Being has questions to answer but governments around the world know their own citizens are going to be asking very searching questions as to how they handled this so a bogeyman scapegoat is very useful for the more naive

Surely it cant be long until Russia too will be rolled out as another culprit- anyone other than our own governments
