http://blog.timesunion.com/tablehopping/files/2008/12/caption-dog5.jpgDog and cat meat -- age-old delicacies in China -- could be off the menu in the food-loving nation under its first law against animal abuse, state press said Tuesday.

People who eat either animal, both of which are viewed as promoting bodily warmth, would face fines of up to 5,000 yuan ($730) and up to 15 days in jail if the law is passed, the Chongqing Evening News said.

It said "organisations" involved in the practice would be fined from 10,000 to 500,000 yuan. The report gave no other details.

The law has been at the drafting stage over the past year and the report did not make clear when the legislation was expected to become law.

China's rubber-stamp legislature meets in March but draft legislation can often take years to be approved.

Cruelty to animals and the raising of cat and dog meat for dinner tables remains widespread in China, despite growing consciousness over animal welfare.

Cat meat is most popular in parts of southern China and there are regular reports of animal lovers attempting to block trucks carrying hundreds or even thousands of cats to meat markets and eventually dinner tables there.
