Taiwan ban cat meat – CWEB.com

Taiwan has increased the penalty for animal cruelty, the sale and consumption of dog and cat meat and underscoring growing awareness of animal cruelty in one of Asia’s big economies.

Under the amended Animal Protection Act, the same penalty will apply in cases where dogs, cats or other protected animals are killed.

Prior to the amendment, the maximum penalty for such offenses was one year in prison and a fine of NT$1 million.
