Let's hope it gets banned everywhere else.

Banning doesn't mean the practice will stop, it MUST be strongly enforced

Agreed, Animae, but at least this evil practice is officially illegal. Break out the champagne!

Thank you Glenn

Sadly, this is only a hello there to incite people to pay attention. They have lost people in tourism. DUMMY! Don't trust them @ all!

"In a press release, Mr. Syamsul Ma’arif DVM, M.Si, Director of Veterinary Public Health, warned of the impact this dog and cat meat trade is having on animal welfare in Indonesia, though he also pointed out its effect on tourism, commenting that “foreign countries find a low standard of animal welfare and cruelty unacceptable and will stop visiting Indonesia which is very bad for our tourism.” The tourism industry was dealt a blowback in 2017 when it was discovered that tourists were given dog meat under the guise of chicken satay. Images from Tomohon Market in early 2018 revealing the extent of the conditions and treatment of these poor animals led to Trip Advisor removing its promotions of the city’s market."

The "political idiot" is worried about $$$ not eating animals. (No protection here sadly)
Well....sadly, in my humble opinion not really good until we bankrupt all of these countries that do this.

Glenn, Bless your heart for posting this, but I don't see this as a DONE DEAL.

I want this to STOP all over the HORROR of this apparently makes me scream in my sleep! Would rather see animals put down immediately.

Thank you for posting...this is where YOU ANIMAE can help please get me an address to write letters. You're good @ this!
