Taiwan's parliament on Tuesday approved a bill banning the slaughter of cats and dogs for human consumption. The move is an important amendment to Taiwan's Animal Protection Act thus becoming the first Asian country to bring in such a law.

Other than consumption, the bill also bans walking the pet on a leash pulled by a vehicle. If anyone is seen doing that, they could face a large fine or up to two years in prison - and having their names and photographs made public.

In 2001, Taiwan parliament passed a bill concerning the sale of meat and fur of pets such as cats and dogs, which was regularly consumed on the island.

We hope to see more such amendments in other Asian countries as well.
