The southern Chinese city of Shenzhen wants local
restaurants to take dogs and cats off their menus as the country clamps down on
the wildlife trade scientists suspect led to the deadly coronavirus outbreak. Reuters reports a new city
regulation states only nine meats that are permitted for consumption, including
pork, chicken, beef and rabbit, as well as fish and seafood. “Banning the
consumption of wild animals is a common practice in developed countries and is
a universal requirement of modern civilization,” the notice said. Apart from
dogs, the new Shenzhen act bars snake, frog and turtle meat from the dinner
table. 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 [Guangdong] 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.”
