Swiss legislators have banned butchers and restaurants from selling meat harvested from the dead bodies of dogs and cats. But despite this win, private residents are still allowed to harm their family pet if they choose to, and eat its remains. Surprisingly, there aren’t even any regulations in place regarding what manner of slaughter is permitted.
One farmer actually described having a peer slaughter a dog for him, or clubbing a dog to death itself, according to a Swiss newspaper. Presently, nothing can be done to stop this from happening because the law does not forbid people from eating their dog or cat, and people can’t turn in those who engage in this practice.

While the majority of Swiss residents are opposed to eating dogs and cats, until this horrible act is made illegal, some people can and do still do it. Sign this petition to tell Swiss legislators they must ban cat and dog meat now!
