Is this the answer to the street dog problem?

Terrible end for these dogs.

Re: Is this the answer to the street dog problem?

Foreigners are outraged! So the hell what? Some Chinese like eating dogs. Fine. I like eating pork and I don't care how many foreigners are outraged. I also like eating beef. I don't regard it as holy and foreigners can take their outrage and stick it.

Re: Is this the answer to the street dog problem?

As per usual it's outsiders trying to tell the indigenous population what they should be doing in 'their country'

Just because dogs are not classed as farm animals which are bred for the food market, what people fail to realise is that most of those dogs are also bread just for the food market.

Bunny rabbits are also nice and cudley, but still go to making either a nice rabbit stew or are simply bred for dog food and yet not many people get up in arms over that.

Could this be the answer to Turkey's feral dog problem?

Cool Re: Is this the answer to the street dog problem?

You eat cows, we eat dolphins struck me as an interesting article about the hypocrisy of certain meat-eaters who condemn other meat-eaters.

Most folks are victims of culturally-learned eating habits.

In some parts of the world, even eating humans is OK. Cannabalism is not illegal in the United States nor does it seem to be in the UK.

I do not eat anything I cannot kill, slice and dice in front of a dining table full of friends and/or their children, many of whom are carnivores. I do not condemn them, I just {sigh} and go on about the task of mastication.
