Taiwan has outlawed the consumption of dog and cat meat, as the island’s legislature on Tuesday passed a landmark amendment to its animal protection laws, according to Central News Agency (CNA).

Violaters who eat or trade dog or cat meat can now be fined between $1,640 to $8,200.
The amendment also bans “walking” the pet on a leash pulled by cars and motorcycles and raises the penalty for cruelty to animals.
Animal lovers pushed for the amendment after a string of shocking animal abuse cases.
