Dog eating on the RISE across Europe

Hong Kong based World Dog Alliance (WDA) believes immigration from the Far East is secretly spreading the habit of eating canines across Europe and the UK.

CHARLOTTE IKONEN: ‘International canine welfare group, the World Dog Alliance (WDA), is launching a campaign in the UK this Autumn for a full ban on dog meat consumption. Killing dogs to eat and consuming their meat is legal in Britain. The Hong Kong based WDA believes immigration from the Far East is secretly spreading the habit of eating canines across Europe… In a statement, the WDA said: “The UK is the first country in the world which enacts the Animal Welfare Act. It is unfortunate to see dog meat consumption being legal in this nation. “The WDA believes a legal ban on eating dog meat would allow the UK to continue to have a global leading role in the field of animal protection, especially after UK leaves the EU… In America, a total ban on the import, trade and consumption of dog meat, which was promoted by the WDA, is about to be put in place by US Congress…

Theresa May’s official spokesman told a Westminster media briefing: “The commercial trade in dog meat in the UK is illegal, but we will look closely at the decision taken in the US”… The RSPCA has dismissed the idea that dog meat consumption is on the rise as its says existing legislation in the Animal Welfare Act 2006 prevents the widespread practice of it. In a statement, the RSPCA, said: “The RSPCA has no evidence that dog meat eating is on the rise in the UK, nor have we ever received any reports on this issue. While we do not believe it happens here, we continue to monitor the situation.” An estimated 30 million dogs a year are slaughtered to be eaten, across China, the Philippines, Indonesia, Thailand, Laos, Vietnam and Cambodia – with most stolen off the street, where dog meat it is considered both a delicacy and a health tonic’.
