Taiwan

Eating cats and dogs is not only extremely popular in Taiwan but there is a prolific underground trade supplying strays to local restaurants and meat vendors across the country. The meat is usually added to other, more conventional meat dishes for added flavor. For the record, the government has passed legislation banning the practice, but it still persists and is very popular, particularly in smaller towns and villages.
