Chinese city bans the eating of cats and dogs

The Chinese city of Shenzhen has banned the eating of dog and cat meat as part of a clampdown on the wildlife trade since the emergence of COVID-19. Scientists suspect the virus passed to humans from animals. Authorities said the ban would come into force on May 1.

How about stopping the sale of virus laden test animals in markets? https://nypost.com/2020/02/22/dont-buy-chinas-story-the-coronavirus-may-have-leaked-from-a-lab/ Instead of properly disposing of infected animals by cremation, as the law requires, they sell them on the side to make a little extra cash. One Beijing researcher, now in jail, made a million dollars selling his monkeys and rats on the live animal market, where they eventually wound up in someone’s stomach.

Don't worry everyone, China did this about 10-15 years ago, and now they're apparently doing it again... More? Furthermore, the government still allows the sale of dogs and cats for food nationally. But even if they're banning things, we're talking about the CCP, and therefore everything will go back to its corrupt version of horrible normal in about a year or so like it did before. These bans also don't typically include animals used for Traditional Chinese Medicine such as bear, lion, rhino, and other animals, so don't give them any slack.

20 years ago while working very late on a project with a colleague from another company, I shared my belief that a global pandemic would come out of China and it would be almost as effective as a bio-weapon. I didn't speculate on whether it would be intentional, but I observed that being a totalitarian government, they could contain it while Western nations would melt down. Years later, SARS hits and he reaches out to me via email and says "man, you nailed it!" I told him "I don't think this is it." About a month ago, he reached out to me again and this time I said "This could be it." Whether China did it on purpose, or were willfully negligent is irrelevant. The outcome is the same. They can tolerate this, we will never get over it.

If they must eat them, don't skin them or boil them alive and don't put the animal through unnecessary suffering just so you can have "fresh meat"
