Whale meat is still considered a delicacy in Japan and Norway and among indigenous communities in North America. Some industrial farms in the West treat cows, pigs and chickens with almost unbelievable cruelty before killing them for food. Dolphins, seals, cats and horses all get eaten in various parts of the world.
On Friday, Chinese and international animal rights campaigners presented an 11 million-signature petition — their largest yet — against an annual dog-meat festival due to take place this month in the southern Chinese city of Yulin. Some 30 million dogs are killed across Asia every year for their meat, with more than a third of that number in China, campaigners say. Thousands are set to be slaughtered in Yulin for the festival, which starts June 21. Opponents say pets are stolen and strays rounded up for the festival, before being beaten to death in slaughterhouses.
I agree, dog's are people's best friend and are loved by many as part of their family. A family next door to me "eat dog" and i find the practice most disgusting,but then again i'm western. The smell of burning dog flesh is horrendous.www.washingtonpost.com... nnual-festival-of-slaughter/?wpinl_wv&wpmm=1
But the culinary custom that generates stronger emotion and more opposition than any other is the East Asian custom of killing and eating dogs. “Man’s best friend,” many people say, should never end up on someone’s dinner table.
NO, sorry i should have mentioned in Indonesia. The people next door are christian Batak, and most of their ethnic race eat dog. I'll also mention Batak around 100 years ago were cannibals and practiced human sacrifice. Muslims don't eat dog, or have them as pets. If they do own a dog it's only for security......
Was this in the US
Tell that to the 11 million Chinese who disagree with your theory, as PETS are stolen to ensure this Festival has enough dogs to eat. We are talking about CHINA, and only China in this OP not the world, so please stay on topic.
Asia eat cats and dogs because that's what they eat
YOU can go and STFU you ***. This OP is about rounding up DOGS, stealing dogs for a yearly festival that 11 million Chinese people object to....Not about their cultural eating habits.
