Taiwan Is The First Country In Asia To Pass This Long Awaited Law

There has always been controversy surrounding Asian countries and the way they choose to treat certain animals.

The consumption of cats and dogs, which we view as pets, is always the focus of that controversy.

But now, Taiwan has implemented a law that prohibits the consumption of cats and dogs. The law was included as an amendment to a previous law introduced in 2011, which prohibited the sale of dog meat.

The new law would mean fines of between $1380 USD and $7000 USD. Repeat offenders will be subjected to "public shaming" and a fine of up to $138,000 USD.

The new law also makes it illegal to "walk" your dog by having them run beside your car or scooter, as it led to too many injuries in the dogs.

Do you think other Asian countries should implement this law? Or is no different than eating cow meat or rabbit meat?
