It is appalling that this could ever be allowed! We Americans are fighting for harsher penalties for animals of all kinds that are abused and abandoned. By allowing this we are going backwards. This is utterly in humane and disgusting.

This is a HOAX.
i messaged the author days ago & it's still there, i'm off to report it to Eric now.

the report is just a silly hoax. There is no restaurant in Los Angeles called 'Puchow de Manila Eatery and Fine Dining' and no eatery in that jurisdiction has been given permission to slaughter dogs and serve the meat.

The image used in the fake story comes from legitimate news reports about a dog-eating festival in Yulin, China.

In fact, selling or eating meat from 'any animal traditionally or commonly kept as a pet or companion' is against the law in California.

The bogus story comes via the fake-news website The News Nerd. The site includes the following disclaimer in the footer of its pages:

The stories posted on TheNewsNerd are for entertainment purposes only. The stories may mimic articles found in the headlines, but rest assured they are purely satirical.

So sad to see so many gullible people on Care2. There is no proof offered as to the truth of this happening in the US. Get a grip people, do your research before signing junk petitions like this one. Shame on who posted the petition for not doing the required research before posting this junk petition. Kudos to AniMai Chi and Ben Oscarsito for having working brains in their heads!

Well, I see that some other friends here did sign it and so did I - which now, after reading that it's a HOAX, feel a bit foolish, but not gullible. It's my own fault for not reading the comments here first and then signing. But, I often sign petitions without doing that, so I was blinded by this one. I hope this blunder will be 'overlooked' by those who know my heart is in the right place for our precious animals.
