Call for a ban on people eating dog meat in the UK

About time!!

UK law says that you can't buy or sell dog meat, but if you humanely kill a dog you own, you can eat it.

But there have been calls to make it illegal, including from SNP MP Dr Lisa Cameron who believes the public would be "right behind legislation calling for a ban".

I had no idea that this was legal in this country. I do hope that it doesn't go on. I am deeply disturbed and hope that this loophole is closed asap.
Better news today is that there seems to be much parliamentary support for Michael Gove's proposal to increase the max. penalty for animal cruelty from 6 months to 5 years imprisonment.
