It’s official – Taiwan has just become the first Asian country to completely ban dog and cat meat
Those found guilty of eating canine or feline meat can be given a fine of up to NT$250,000 ($8,000)
This positive change can be mostly attributed to changing attitudes in Taiwan towards dogs and cats
As pet ownership in the country is increasing, more people see animals as companions rather than meat
President Tsai Ing-wen might have something to do with it as well
During her election campaign, she positioned herself as an animal lover
Still, even though this ban is a huge victory, the fight to abolish cat and dog meat continues
In China, every year 10,000 doggies are killed in the Yulin dog meat festival
