Petition: Black Cats Killed and Ground Up into Paste as Misleading Coronavirus Treatment

  • 246

Reports from show are being killed and eaten after rumors spread that their ground-up bodies are effective treatments. Animal rights activists in the group No to Dog Meat said that black cats were being sold for paste, per South West News Service.

Julia de Cadenet of No to Dog Meat said the footage of the ground-up cats was abhorrent, “People all over the world are understandably terrified of , but this does not excuse the horrific cruelty that Vietnamese people are inflicting on these poor cats.

There is no evidence whatsoever that eating cats cures coronavirus, and even if there was, this inhumane treatment is a level of cruelty that is unacceptable even for those who eat meat.

In China, when the virus first broke, rumors flew around that pets could spread the disease.

This led to many people and the authorities rounding up animals and killing them. Our human fears about this pandemic should not be used as an excuse to treat defenseless animals who look to us for protection, with utter contempt.”

Many countries have histories of using wild animals in medical treatment and this is no exception. “In Vietnam and Indonesia, the practice of eating dogs and cats and exotic wildlife is still highly prevalent. Traders have been promoting ‘exotic’ meats as a cure to coronavirus,” she shared.

Scientists believe that the spread of COVID-19, or coronavirus, started at an exotic animal market in Wuhan, China.

I don’t understand the conclusion – how will stopping the wildlife trade will protect pets? As clear as Johnson’s messaging.

These repulsive animal murdering asian scumbags must be wiped off the planet by means of a slow and agonising death!

Paul Seligman

Well that’s most of the human race gone. Could you be satisfied with a slow and agonising death for the small number of Vietnamese who are involved rather than the 4.5bn Asian peoples? Reads like racism to me and I’m sure an animal-loving Asian person (and there are many,and billions of Vegetarians there as well) can find many things wrong with the way your and my country treats animals and wish you a hateful end as well. Let’s focus any anger in a more constructive way, please.
