The Nagaland government has decided to ban commercial import, trading and sale of dog meat, the state's top official said on Friday. The move comes after outrage over a picture of incapacitated canines tied in gunny bags was widely circulated on social media. This is the second time such a move has been taken - the state government in the past had asked Urban Local Bodies to end markets selling dog meat but the decision was not implemented. Dog meat is considered a delicacy among some communities in the state. In 2016, animal rights activists had sent a legal to the government over dog meat trade.
