Shenzhen prepares ban on eating cats and dogs after COVID-19 outbreak

The southern Chinese technology hub of Shenzhen is moving to outlaw the consumption of dogs and cats as the country clamps down on the wildlife ...

READ: Pangolin identified as potential link for novel coronavirus spread A ban on eating dog and cat meat in Shenzhen would be"extremely welcome," said Peter Li, China policy expert for Humane Society International, an animal welfare group. "Although the trade in Shenzhen is fairly small compared with the rest of province, Shenzhen is still a huge city and is larger than Wuhan, so this would be very significant and could even have a domino effect with other cities following." The other permitted meats are lamb, donkey, ducks, geese and pigeon. The proposal noted there are more than 2,000 species of protected wildlife in China. Shenzhen's proposal follows a decision by the central government on Monday for an immediate ban in the trade and consumption of wild animals , after an initial suspension in January. The State Forestry and Grassland Administration is also moving to expand the scope of protected wildlife, and will revoke licences for wildlife breeding organisations found to be breeding for consumption, Xinhua reported on Thursday. Those caught eating protected animals would be fined up to 20,000 yuan (US$2,850) and up to 2,000 yuan for non-protected animals, according to the draft. Shops serving protected meat face fines of up to 50,000 yuan. The public will have until Thursday to respond to the draft, according to the document. In Yulin, a city in the neighbouring province of Guangxi famous for its dog meat festival, most dog slaughter operations have closed in the past two months because of restrictions on moving dogs across provincial borders, Li said.
