An international animal welfare organisation reported that almost 150 cats were taken by police officers to eastern China for slaughter.
Humane Society International (HSI), Tuesday’s statement, stated that the animals were found in rusty cages in Jinan, Shandong province.
An activist with the local animal rights organization VShine claimed that a gang placed sparrows in cages as bait. The traps were then closed using a remote control to shut them down as soon as each cat entered.
“It was shocking to see the state they were in, many of them emaciated and crying out,”In a statement to HSI, an activist who didn’t give their last name Huang said that.
“Our discovery of dozens of live sparrows used as bait to lure the cats was also a big shock.”
According to the statement, most of these rescued felines were household pets who were then sent to shelters.
Activists also discovered 31 sparrows at the scene, a protected species, and released them back into the wild.
China does not have any laws against animal cruelty. However they could penalize suspects for hunting birds or property theft and violating animal disease prevention rules.
According to HSI China annually kills approximately 10,000,000 dogs, and 4,000,000 cats for human consumption.
China considers cat and dogs meat to be a delicacy. The profit from the sale of their flesh is still lucrative enough to criminal gangs, but it has seen a steady decline on pet ownership.
Every June, the Yulin dog meat festival takes place in southern China. Live cats and canines are available for purchase.
Traditions of eating dogs and cats in Guangdong, Guangxi, Guangxi, Guangxi Provinces south China date back thousands of years.
“These are China’s two main cat meat eating hotspots,”Dr Peter Li is HSI China policy expert and made the statement via a statement.
“Throughout the rest of mainland China, cat meat is not part of the food culture at all.”
The disease was partly linked to a Wuhan market that sold live animals as food. The Covid-19 epidemic seems to have further reduced the desire to eat cat or dog meat.
China banned wildlife import and export in 2020.
April 2011, Zhuhai, Shenzhen and Zhuhai in Guangdong banned pets and animals from the streets. These were the first Chinese towns to ban cats or dogs.
