Mizoram India Introduces New Law To Ban Dog Meat


Right now, all eyes are on China. Many believe the pandemic is a result of them eating bats and wildlife. Meanwhile, a little known state called Mizoram in North East India has passed the Animal Slaughter Bill 2020 to remove the use of dogs for food forever.

You may have seen the terrible images and footage we have released since our campaign began of dogs stolen and stuffed in bags. Just like in the Phillippines, their noses are tied tightly shut. They travel for hours to Mizoram and Nagaland. Sometimes they were even stolen from Myanmar and Bangladesh. The poor dogs are stuffed full of rice before being burnt alive. Although this practice was illegal under Food Safety regulations, no one was enforcing the rules.

This law is a big step forward and could easily be recreated throughout Asia.

As part of our work in consultative status with the United Nations, we continue to push for new laws to further animal welfare and run education programmes. NoToDogMeat has been urging them since January in our petition to close all dog meat markets and end the live slaughter of animals.
