Hawaii animal lovers want to ban eating pets

By Associated Press

HONOLULU (AP) Animal lovers in Hawaii packed a legislative hearing room with poodles and pugs to ask lawmakers to ban the practice of eating cats and dogs in Hawaii.

The House Committee on Agriculture advanced a bill to ban the practice on Thursday.

The Humane Society of the United States says dog slaughter for human consumption is happening across Hawaii. They say it's hard for law enforcement to catch animal slaughterers. The Oahu Society for Prevention of Cruelty to Animals says that dogs and cats are family members, and you would not kill or eat your child.

One woman cradling a Pomeranian read a note that her son wrote to lawmakers. The boy says he loves his dogs too much and all dogs should be loved and not eaten.
