Dog meat restaurants close
Many dog meat restaurants have closed in Guangzhou, Guangdong province, mainly due to tightened regulations on animal welfare, Guangzhou Daily reported.
Guangzhou, where eating dog meat has long been a tradition, launched a campaign in March to crack down on dog meat businesses which don’t have quarantine certificates. Many restaurants that sold a great amount of dog meat couldn’t afford the quarantine tests and shut down.
The dispute over eating dog meat has raged in China for many years and led to violence in Yulin, Guangxi Zhuang autonomous region last year. (Photo 2)
