The other day a picture started making the rounds on social media of a dog in a cooking pot.
It was accompanied by a voice note of a woman saying that she was now offering the proof that Chinese were cooking dog and serving as other acceptable meats.
Since then there have been many comments on Facebook as many claim they would not be ordering any more Chinese food.
Ministry of Health is now weighing in on the issue and they are promising to launch an investigation into the allegations.
The Health Ministry is now prepared investigate into whether Chinese restaurants are serving dog meat.
“If there are sufficient reasons for us to launch an investigation, then we will do that,” an official from the Ministry of Health reportedly said.
The social media message, which has sent tongues wagging across Jamaica, contains an image of a skinned, unseasoned animal, resembling a dog, in a metal bowl.
Under Jamaica’s Public Health Act, the slaughter of animals or poultry for human consumption is monitored by the health authorities.
