How To Learn To Sell - From A Cat - Business 2 Community
What this means is you can humanely kill and eat a dog or cat but you can't sell it at a restaurant or supermarket. You can invite the neighbors over for dinner, though.
The live animals were kept in small cages no taller than 20 centimetres (7.8 inches), the report claimed.In his tiny warehouse, Huang had around 100 cats cruelly killed every day - they were first drowned then skinned.Then he would sell them to meat wholesalers coming from southern China, such as Guangxi Province, where the barbaric annual Yulin dog meat festival is held.Huang's cats were usually sold for 20 yuan per kilogram (£2.3) or 28-32 yuan (£3.2-£3.7) per cat, as the investigation revealed, and the restaurants would then re-sell the meat to customers as rabbit or wild animal meat.
In hindsight, the “fairly large” size specification did seem kind of cheeky. But the ad’s real failure is on the pricing end: sell for way more than $5.
It’s a common sight to see hot dog stands in America. In Singapore, ice cream stands are a lifesaver in the sweltering hot weather. In Japan, however, you’re more likely to find a yaki-imo (roasted sweet potato) stand on the streets, especially during winter. If you’re lucky enough, you might even meet the legendary cat that sells stone roasted sweet potatoes in Kurayoshi City, !Up to this point, the "Cat Crib" was just something to make our cat happy - it wasn't pursued as a product. After realizing that our cat was really enjoying the bed we decided to do some market research on the pet industry. Turns out there are 90+ million cats in the USA alone and the pet industry sells $50+ billion per year. After seeing those numbers it made sense to give bring the Cat Crib a shot. In Kurayoshi City of Tottori Prefecture, there is a ishiyaki-imo seller who is famous for running the business in a furry cat mascot suit. Known as Mikeneko Yamada, this ishiyaki-imo stand is particularly popular among children, for very a obvious reason! It’s a cat selling roasted sweet potatoes! Prices start from 200 yen (US$2) for a small one, to 300 yen (US$3) for a medium-sized sweet potato, and 400 yen (US$4) for a large one.It is legal in 44 states to eat a dog or a cat. What? Yes, your dog could end up on a plate with a side of rice and a carrot curl for garnish. It is illegal to sell dog or cat meat in the United States but 44 states allow its personal consumption. Indian reservations are exempt from such restrictions.Rep. John Maher, Pennsylvania authored House Bill 1750 in the Pennsylvania Legislature that would also make it illegal to breed, process, or sell dogs and cats for human consumption. It passed easily through the House but is now sitting in the Senate.While the bipartisan HR 1406 is unlikely to meet much opposition—the pro-dog-meat lobby simply doesn’t exist in the U.S.—things are much more complicated in Asia, where farming or selling dogs and cats for meat is a livelihood for many. Dog meat traders protest prohibition just as loudly as activists denounce the cruelty. But they are on the wrong side of history. You can’t un-educate people who learn the true evil of this industry.The practice of selling dogs and cats in pet stores has been criticized by animal-rights advocates, who say keeping the animals in store cages is bad for their health, and selling them encourages unscrupulous “puppy mill” operations. It’s also a consumer-rights issue, they argue, because such animals often incur high veterinarian costs.
