In Guangdong, China alone, people eat 10,000 cats DAILY and they are killed using the most hideous methods-multiple cats are thrown in potato sacks while still alive, these sacks full of LIVE cats are thrown in boiling water and boiled alive like lobster. They believe the torture enhances the flavor of the meat. This happens to be true as reported in China Daily.
There are no animal welfare laws in China so they can do whatever they want. They do the same to dogs. They often are skinned alive for meat and fur and sold all over the world.
