Chinese legal experts call for ban on eating cats and dogs

"Chinese legal experts are proposing a ban on eating dogs and cats in a contentious move to end a culinary tradition dating back thousands of years.

The recommendation will be submitted to higher authorities in April as part of a draft bill to tackle animal abuse.

In ancient times, dog meat was considered a medicinal tonic. Today, it is commonly available throughout the country, but particularly in the north where dog stew is popular for its supposed warming qualities."


I knew there was a reason Michelle Obama hadn't visited China as yet. Dog on the menu and who knows WHAT innocent mistakes might be made...

Oh shit. Sorry. Wrong pic. Sometimes its hard to tell that's all.
