Hawaii May Ban Slaughter Of Dogs, Cats For Food
Some Asian Groups Say Law Aims At Stereotype

UPDATED: 9:21 am CST February 22, 2005

HONOLULU -- A Hawaii state lawmaker is drawing protests over a bill that would ban the slaughter of dogs and cats for food.

Members of some Asian ethnic groups believe the measure is aimed at unfounded and racist stereotypes of their cultures.

A probe into allegations of dog and cat slaughter last year on Oahu turned up no evidence that it was taking place.

Still, animal rights groups pushed for the bill's introduction this month.

Eating dog meat is tolerated in some Asian cultures, but many families from Asia settled in Hawaii generations ago and now consider the practice repugnant.
