Dog meat restau­rants close

China Daily (Canada) - - CHINESE TRAIN PROJECTS AROUND THE WORLD -

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)
