USA makes Killing Dogs and Cats illegal: Urges Countries like India to Outlaw Pet SlaughterRasu (Author) Published Date : Sep 14, 2018 17:30 IST
The Slaughter of dogs and cats for the meat consumption is carried out in various parts of world and such activity is allowed as legal in most of the countries. The United States in its recent meeting in the California house passed the bill of banning the killing of dogs and cats for meat and consuming it. Though it is illegal only in a few states of the country, the trade of dog and cat meat is outlawed in the United States, though those underground business of selling meat is dominating in many areas.
The amendment of this law suggested the condemnations of U.S. over other nations permitting the slaughter of the pet animals for eating. The bill passed by the California House stated an exception for the Indian tribe in their country for this law in terms of religious ceremonies held by them involving slaughters.
Taiwan is the only East-Asian nation to make it illegal for dog and cat meat and the trade of those animals meat. India hasn’t declared such a cruel injustice to the pet animals as an illegal activity, while the blue cross and other animal welfare associations stand as a strong objector against the animal crimes in the nation.ads
While most of the animal welfare organisations are demanding for the ban of non-reasonable animal slaughters in India, it is still a pending request and in terms of the killing of pet animals like dogs and cats which are considered as a part of human feelings the action should be taken seriously.
The Government of U.S. asked the nations like Cambodia, China, South Korea, Philippines, Vietnam, Thailand, Laos, Indonesia and, India to outlaw eating of pet animals’ meat and trade of the animals for meat production and consumption. The recent case that shocked South India was a food street in Chennai serving dog meats for customers fooling them in the name of Chicken to consume.
One of the U.S. Senator during the law amendment said, 'Dogs and cats are soulful pet animals and not the dinner meal on your table'. It is high time the government consider about this serious issue and think about banning the slaughter of a specific set of pet animals with respect to the sensitivity and care of people on pets.ads
