The Vietnamese capital Hanoi asks people not to eat dog meat

In the capital of Vietnam, Hanoi, people are urged to stop eating dog meat, as this can lead to rabies.

The People’s Committee of Hanoi declared that this practice could tarnish the image of the city as a “civilized and modern capital”.
City officials added that meat consumption can lead to the spread of diseases such as rabies and leptospirosis.
More than 1,000 stores in Hanoi still sell dog and cat meat.
The committee also urged residents to stop eating cat meat, which is less popular but still available. He emphasized the fact that many animals were brutally killed.
It is estimated that Hanoi has 490,000 dogs and cats, most of which are domestic animals. A growing number of people in Vietnam do not approve of eating dog meat, but it still remains a “very deep-rooted habit,” according to Lin Nguyen, a journalist with the BBC Vietnamese service.
Even on social networks, many welcomed this decision, but some argued that many Vietnamese could not easily give up this habit.
One of Facebook users, Dang Ngoc Quang, argued that the dish should not be completely banned, as this is tantamount to incarceration.
Instead, he proposed to introduce a large tax on dog meat or to allow selling it only in certain areas.
