A second Chinese city has banned its residents from eating dogs and cats with a new law in response to the coronavirus pandemic.

PZhuhai, a city with a population of 1.7 million, issued the order in line with a government’s proposal which lists dogs as ‘companion animals’, an official told state media.
Shenzhen is the first Chinese city to bar pet meat from the dining table. It is situated across the Pearl River estuary from Zhuhai. The two cities, both in the southern province of Guangdong, will enforce the ban from May 1.
