Vietnam, Hanoi: Cat Meat and Dog Meat Puppies

Vietnam does not have animal cruelty laws but the use of cats for human consumption has been banned since February 18, 1998, by the then Prime Minister of the Socialist Republic Of Vietnam, Nguyễn Công Tạn. Unfortunately this law is blatantly ignored and not enforced because too many officials enjoy eating cat meat for good luck. The photograph above was taken at L 179 Flower Shop, the Square, Hanoi.

Cats suffer quite badly in many dog and cat eating countries because they are falsely viewed as suspicious and evil, and consequently feared my many people. Remarkably, the same cat which is feared is also seen as a good luck charm if eaten at the start of each month. It is also falsely believed that eating the spine of a cat each month can pass on the cat’s agility to the person eating it.

Vietnamese cat restaurants encourage diners to choose which live cat they want to eat – to guarantee freshness. The customer watches the cat of their choice be hit on the head with a hammer – not to kill it, just to quieten it down – then the live cat is dropped into boiling water and boiled alive in front of the excited customer.  When the frantic flailing, clawing and scratching stops, the cat is removed and skinned – even if it is still alive, then chopped up for cat meat soup, cooked and served. Bon Appéti

Prior to 1998 so many cats were killed and eaten in Vietnam that rats took over farmer’s crops in plague proportions. Serious illness and disease caused deaths among people and catastrophic damage was done to farmer’s crops. Some farming areas reported entire crops ruined by rat plagues!

The law is titled: Urgent Measures Of Rat Eradication For Crop Protection.
Section 6: Ministry of Commerce, General Administration of Customs in collaboration with the Ministry of Home Affairs to closely manage the export of all kinds of implementation of rat eradication locally, organize and mobilize all the resources to kill the rats, take measures to encourage and support specific to send documents to steer the concerned sectors in the province to revoke the business license, close right away all the cat meat restaurants (little tiger), to seriously handle the cat traders and smugglers, cat trading across borders, natural enemies of rats and strict measures for violations of hunting the predators of rats for export and food, especially urgent now is the illegal smuggling, trafficking and transporting cats across the border, and for cat meat restaurants.

For many years Hanoi was seen as the dog meat capital and Ho Chi Minh City [Saigon], as the cat meat capital. In 2016 both major cities are mixing and matching both dog and cat meat, which is bad news for dogs and cats because it means the number of animals being consumed is rising, not falling.  This may be connected with Vietnam’s growing tourist population.

Fight Dog Meat receives too many reports of tourists vacationing in dog and cat eating countries and using the lame excuse “when in Rome” to justify them self eating dogs and cats.

Fight Dog Meat will continue to bring you reports from dog and cat meat countries and the wonderful work their rescuers are doing despite no animal protection laws. Turning away or sitting quietly does not end the trade. We’ll keep exposing what is taking place to these animals. We’re helping local volunteers have a louder voice on a world platform. Ultimately it’s the voice of the country’s own people whom their government will eventually be forced to listen to, for positive change for animals.

    It is not good luck in fact you are creating bad karma which will catch up with you eventually. It also extremely cruel and inhumane to inflict so much pain and suffering on another living creature. Please enforce the law against this practice.

    Time to take animal rights and Welfare seriously. Those sweet beautiful cats and dogs. What a crime against nature. What a disgusting Injustice. Makes me ill looking at these photos. Time for a new regime of wisdom ( as this lacks the words of the magnitude of stupidity and ignorance), MORAL AND ETHICAL RESPONSIBILITY, HUMANITY, COMPASSION, AND JUSTICE. What a disgusting group of barbaric people. And this is what you’re known for and by. Utter gross ignorance.

    Don’t these people have any heart or compassion, how can they not be aware of the agony and fear they are causing these poor creatures. I really believe that whatever makes us human these people are lacking it and are not of this earth.
