Taiwan has become the first Asian country to ban eating Dogs and cats. The nation has completely banned the sale and consumption of dog and cat meat and the offenders will apparently get some jail time as well.
The new Animal protection act will impose two years of prison time for the people who kill or torture animals. There would also be fines for sale, purchase or consumption of dog or cat meat.
It’s widely believed in Taiwan that eating dog meat in winters could increase the body temperature and improve blood circulation.
