China: authorities act against illicit cat meat trade by using food safety laws — 3 Comments

  1. I totally agree with your comment, Albert Shepis, especially the last sentence, “Also, I just don’t see the trade-off being efficient in the first place, one little animal companion’s whole life sacrificed to make one meal for a human or two?”

  2. If we had word that the real intent is to stop the cruelty, albeit for “safety” reasons, I would feel even better about it. And being that these are sentient beings, it can be argued that eating them is on the path to eventually eating people. If all they argue is “need”, then at some point there just aren’t going to be enough animals to feed the enormous populations we continue to create. It’s approaching the tipping point now. That can be argued but one has to be able to see into the future and consider worst case scenarios. Also, I just don’t see the trade-off being efficient in the first place, one little animal companion’s whole life sacrificed to make one meal for a human or two?

  3. I’m quite certain I saved a young cat from being dinner in the park. It’s reported that the ducks are being abducted for food. And, raccoons are served up, too.
