They still eat cat in Viet Nam

Last month we had the story of the dog eating festival in China, today there is a story about the enduring popularity of “little tiger” or cat meat, in Viet Nam. Officially, eating cat meat is against the law in Viet Nam, but apparently there is still quite the demand for it.

People who own cats as pets keep them indoors or restrained to keep them away from the cat-poachers who sell them to the many bars and restaurants that serve cat. According to one chef, cat meat is superior to dog meat in that it is sweeter and more tender; a cat for slaughter goes from $50-$70.
