On the Banning of Eating Cats and Dogs in China

Animal Person

Sometimes an article has a couple of the above, as in the case of " Chinese Legal Experts Call for a Ban on Eating Cats and Dogs." Let's deconstruct: Legal experts in China are proposing a ban on the eating of dogs and cats. Many people support this, particularly affluent types, who have become dog and cat people and now own them as "pets." So the ban isn't being suggested because eating cats and dogs is wrong, but because it's creating conflict.

Unintended Consequences of Predator Control

Critter News

The intent was to protect birds by removing one of their predators: cats. It seemed like a good idea at the time: Remove all the feral cats from a famous Australian island to save the native seabirds. What happened was something that hurt the birds worse. But the decision to eradicate the felines from Macquarie island allowed the rabbit population to explode and, in turn, destroy much of its fragile vegetation that birds depend on for cover, researchers said Tuesday

Deconstructing Slate's "Pepper" Series

He's right with his implication that stopping the seizing of pets and strays simply created a more efficient, effective means of commodifying and torturing dogs and cats. This one addresses the decreasing number of dogs and cats being experimented on and, without mentioning it, discusses speciesism and our affection for dogs--pet dogs particularly (and especially purebreds)--which leads to our revulsion with the idea of snatching, vivisecting and killing them.

We accept that the state has the right to ban cruelty to animals, even when such cruelty is in the interests of the person being cruel, for example, of the greyhound owner who trains his dog on cats, first removing the cat's claws to protect his dog from injury, or of the householder who half-starves his dog so that he can have an extra beer or two, or of the person who hunts kangaroos, wounding many and killing a few, for the fun of the sport.
