Dog Meat Vendors Resurface In Bulawayo, Public Urged To Buy Meat From Registered Butcheries

Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA) animal inspector Mr Dumisani Sibanda and Bulawayo City Council have warned the public not to buy meat from the street after three men were found skinning dogs at the municipal dumpsite in Bulawayo recently

SPCA animal inspector said the dogs are not fit for human consumption because of chemicals used to kill them. Said Sibanda:

There was clear signs that people were back and digging for dog carcasses and skinning and selling the meat to unsuspicious residents. All carcasses that are sent for disposal from the SPCA are of animals that have been humanely euthanised or those that have died from disease or natural causes. These animals may be dangerous or even fatal to eat and even any of their body parts may not be used for any other purposes. It is therefore illegal to slaughter dogs, process the meat or other body parts, distribute or sell for any purpose. It is risky, dangerous and may even be fatal to eat meat from dogs in this country.
