Many of us are aware that in some countries, dogs are considered more to be man’s food rather than his best friend. Recently, more than 435 dog penises were found in a raid by Taiwanese officials of a slaughterhouse in western Yulin, Taiwan.
In addition to the dog penises, a number of other organs and 12 whole dog corpses were discovered. The good news, however, is that two dogs were very fortunate to be rescued during the raid.
The reason the owner kept these organs was a mystery until some people suggested that these parts were being used as ingredients in wines that supposedly boost male libido and fight against impotency.
The owner of the slaughterhouse could be in jail for a maximum of one year and given a fine of US$34,500 if he is charged as a repeat violator of Taiwan’s animal protection law.
