A PRC restaurant going by the name of “Song Hua Jiang” located along Jurong East Ave 1 is currently being investigated by the Agri—Food and Veterinary Authority of Singapore (AVA) for selling DOG MEAT to patrons. One of its dishes was apparently described as containing “braised dog meat, tofu and cabbage”:
“Song Hua Jiang” is the name of a major river in Jilin province, northeast China where dog meat is a popular cuisine among the inhabitants.
Under the law, meat can only be imported from AVA and this means that the restaurant may be slaughtering DOGS in Singapore on its own.
Anyone caught illegally slaughtering animals for human consumption or importing dog meat could be fined up to S$10,000 and jailed up to 12 months.
The relentless influx of immigrants from mainland China has provided a ready market for dog meat in Singapore as it is highly unlikely that Singaporeans will touch the ‘exotic’ meat.
In an interview with National Geographic magazine in January 2010, PAP de facto leader Lee Kuan Yew said it’s a good thing that Singapore is welcoming so many Chinese immigrants (from China) as they are ‘harder-driving’ and ‘harder-striving’ than Singaporeans.
With Lee expected to import another 900,000 foreign workers on work permits into Singapore, perhaps the sale of dog meat may soon be legalized here one day to make the Chinese immigrants feel ‘respected’ and ‘welcomed.’
