    Wait just one more... One of the guys I worked with fed a bunch of his co-workers dog a pot luck when he lived in Texas. He was not a nice guy; in fact, I got him fired, but not for that.

    One suspects there is an endless supply of these just waiting to erupt.... but there are even better true stories where the main course wasn't a dog or cat, but rather something a little closer to home....

    Let's spare everyone....

    But as the Vegan bumper sticker states: MEAT IS MURDER

    Of course as the alternative PETA group, People Eating Tasty Animals, would say - that's some finger-licking good Fido.
    :uhyeah:
    Why do I find it ironic they are protecting their animals before securing civil rights to their 1.3 billion+ human population??

    There I go again... being a hairless-ape, biped-centric type needing a reeducation camp.

    Repeat one hundred times: "The cockroaches are our brothers".

    I think it would be a shame if China banned this cultural tradition.
    Banning it would just be another Western idiocracy surpressing
    another indiginous norm.

    Being of Filipino descent, I have seen many things I would not partake
    in, but understand and appreciate the cultural significance.

    What do you call a Filipino walking a dog?


    A vegetarian...

    Culture, schmulture -- it's just food. The Chinese are nothing if not practical, so if it's in their best (business) interests to ban eating dog, they'll do it. I've never known them to treat food as anything other than a commodity. "Hey, what's that? I don't know. Can we eat it?"

    :D

    Why?

    What is the reason eating cow would be ok, but not dog or cats?
    English people generally don't eat horse, but in Belgium it's considered normal.

    Where do you think all the used up racehorses go?

    Its illegal in the US to slaughter horses for food, so you guys ship them up here. We do about 100000 horses a year for food, with the vast majority of the meat going to Europe and Asia.

    Oh, I'll say it:

    Horse tastes good......

    Cat tastes good......

    Every time I've had dog, I had seconds....

    We really need to get over this-I'm tired of people getting upset because I'm eating "Bambi," "Flicka," "Fluffy," or "Rover." If they eat those animals in China (as they have for thousands of years) it's nothing to judge them by. It's certainly not a human rights violation, anyway...:rolleyes:

    Well there's one serious line of thought that dogs were originally domesticated from the wolf as yet another form of food.

    The only difference between dogs (originally) and most of the other animals, who we in the west, have domesticated for food is that dogs are useful for things other than food and resources. In dogs case, hunting, sheep-herding, protection etc are all useful until they get old, at which point the meat is less tender and not as nice as other animals.

    Well, outside of California it's not illegal, there are just no plants open at this time, plus it is legal for you to have your own horse processed.
