WASHINGTON – The House has passed legislation that would outlaw the slaughter of dogs and cats for food – a practice that, although rare, is still legal in 44 states.

The bipartisan bill by Florida Reps. Vern Buchanan, a Republican; and Alcee Hastings, a Democrat; would amend the federal Animal Welfare Act to ban the slaughter of dogs and cats for human consumption in the United States. It was passed Wednesday by voice vote.

The bill makes it illegal to knowingly slaughter, transport, possess, buy, sell or donate dogs or cats or their parts for human consumption. Violators would be fined up to $5,000.

Sounds like no-brainer legislation that Amy Klobuchar would tag along with.

"Eating dogs and cats banned in U.S. in House-passed bill"

In the meantimes, human beings can still be torn out of the womb in pieces.

The House of Representatives is a despicable lot.

This would never pass in Bill Clinton’s time, since its well know how much he hungered for cats.

Why on earth would any one want to eat a cat,
they taste terrible. I’d rather have fried squirrel.

Let’s face it. States are an anachronism now. They’re simply zoning districts of the federal government.
