Taiwan Dog Eating Protest

Hundreds of Taiwanese people protest at the Presidential Office after charges against five alleged dog eaters are dropped.

After prosecutors chose not to indict five people who killed and ate two dogs, the Life Caring and Animal Rescue Organization Taiwan (LCO) mobilized hundreds of people in front of the Taiwanese Presidential Office to protest the decision. Last May, the LCO filed charges against the five who had hanged and cooked the dogs. Prosecutors dropped charges because this was a first-time offense and the group did not torture but “only killed [the dogs] for food”. The LCO is now demanding increased animal welfare laws. Selling and consuming dog meat was banned in Taiwan in 2001, but roughly 5,000 dogs are still butchered per year.
