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.

Another "ban" that would do ZERO good if put into place but would just make a bunch of stuffy people feel better. Killing and eating other animals is fine but not dogs. I wonder if these same people would stand behind a ban of killing and eating pet snakes?

It is very easy to kill your own pet dog. Strangulation or blunt force trauma to the head are both silent and QUICK. Poison works too but if you are EATING the dog, it's unlikely you want to go that route. A gunshot is too loud and in the UK, mostly impractical anyway.

There's NO WAY to stop people from eating their dogs if they truly want to. Useless ban. Won't deter anybody.
