Fighting Dog Meat in China
Progress in the battle
Little Eddie was confiscated, and cared for by Animals Asia Foundation, during a raid on an illegal trader in China.

Last January, I blogged about a rare government raid on a dog trader (for consumption) in Sichuan Province, which resulted in the rescue of 149 dogs from appalling conditions. Although that particular trader had violated the law dog meat is not only legal in China, it’s quite popular. But things may be changing. A year later it sounds like efforts to ban the practice of eating dogs and cats in China (and the attendant cruelty) are gaining ground, according to a recent story on CNN.com.

 
If you want to be a part of this effort, learn more about out Animals in Asia’s campaign to ban dog meat, and the cruelty associated with the practice. Also, Korea Animal Rights Advocates is campaigning to end the practice of eating dogs in South Korea.
