Indonesia readies law to ban dog meat trade

Foreign Office minister Sir Alan Duncan has also spoken out in favor of a total ban on eating dog meat, calling it a "disgusting habit" and adding, "We should nip it in the bud now". The WDA is set to launch a nationwide campaign in the autumn.

The welfare group said it is anxious the consumption of dogs may be being spread by immigration from some Asian countries - even if the consumption of dog meat in countries like North and South Korea is becoming increasingly uncommon.

A spokesperson for Theresa May said on Monday that the government would "look closely at the decision taken in the UK".

Isenhour said the outpouring of support for Lyle's family was heartwarming in such a hard time. The former US PGA Tour player is survived by his wife and daughters Lusi, 6, and Jemma, 2.

Despite all this, both the RSPCA and Humane Society International said there is "no evidence" to support the suggestion dog meat consumption is on the rise in the UK.

Dog meat stalls in Solo, Central Java are a common sight, where traders promote their products as being traditional Javanese jamu medicine. Killing dogs and their consumption have been met with massive criticisms in the past too.

Prime Minister Theresa May is looking into banning the eating of dogs in Britain after reports that the practice could be increasing.

"If the government really wanted to end the dog meat trade, there are more useful things that it could do than introduce a United Kingdom ban", Higgins added, calling for a more "proactive" approach from politicians. The world has been watching Indonesia's handling of the meat trade situation, and we are excited that the Indonesian Government is finally paying attention. The reality is that's not going to happen.

"I don't believe there is any real legitimacy to the call to make dog meat eating prohibited as dog slaughter would be illegal within a slaughterhouse, it would be illegal for commercial purposes and anyone wanting to do it for domestic consumption outside a slaughterhouse would need to have the "appropriate levels of competence", i.e.be trained and have the right qualifications, have the right equipment (captive bolt) and do it according to the AWA 2006".

"The UK is a country of dog lovers and the public want the strongest possible legislation to prevent animal cruelty".

"I love, love, love this energy and desire - that it's not enough to be fourth in the World Cup or second or third in the Premier League ".

The slaughter and sale of dog meat still mean big business in countries like China, South Korea and Vietnam, with no end in sight as demand remains robust in these economies. The heart-wrenching treatment of dogs who have become victims - many of whom are stolen pets - has been exposed by multiple investigations and media reports, which have sparked worldwide outrage and calls from high-profile individuals and celebrities to bring it to an end. She said the government is right to be concerned about the impacts of these trades on its global reputation. "This latest announcement will be celebrated globally", she added. We wish to maintain that'.
