Dangogi, meaning “sweat meat”, is the term used for dog meat in Korea. Dangogi-jang or Boshintang, also known as Dog Soup, is controversial, but the North Korean’s state media has been calling it a prized delicacy essential to coping with the summer heat.
“These days workers sweating to taste boshintang can be witnessed in any Dangogi houses and traditional restaurants in the capital of Pyongyang,” the agency said.
Defectors mentioned that in North Korea dog meat has become a luxury since food shortages worsened and even the South Korean restaurants have lowered the profile on serving this somewhat odd cuisine.
WHAT NEXT CATS OR RATS.
WHAT KIND DOG ARE THEY EATING?
Puppies, just like piglets and veal. Tender and juicy !
Eating Customs only seem strange if they are different to what you would normally have…..
Who’d have thought even 20 years ago that sushi and sashimi would become a popular dish in western countries???
In Vietnam Dog and Cats are popular dishes. People Don’t eat them because they are poor, they eat them because they like the taste. Good dog meat is more expensive than beef.
In addition You can get “Thit Cay” which I understands translate as meat from wild animals….. while you will be told this is civet or some other such animal, it is probably just dog or cat.
Not to mention all kinds of migratory birds or assorted water fowl, handily served with the head so you can identify the species……
I understand that some cultures love whale or seal blubber while others have raw monkey brains……. I think these treats are not for me……. But what a wonderful diverse world we live upon…… Just maybe learning something about my neighbors will teach me something new about myself……….
your right- it may be taboo to some but it is normal to this countries.
When in Rome….
casual adventure…couldn’t agree with you more!
thit cay does not means meat from wild animal. It actually means dog meat.. thit = meat, cay = dog… the nothern vietnamese called dog cay and dog meat came from north vn. So instead of the word cho that normally was used for dog they used the word cay
The Crazy News Guy
â€œThe best cuisineâ€ served over the summer season!
I’ve never been happier not to be a Korean dog…
Okay, anybody who does not see this as horribly wrong, is in my opinion f_ _ _ed up!! Do you realize how they are slaughtered..look it up!! Hope no one always u people to own a pet!
okay, i take back everything I said…. it took a year before I realized I was wrong… I’m so f_ _ _ed up!!
They hit them over the head with a big long stick. The same way they kill baby seals. It is a quick and painless death.
And eating beef, pork, fish etc is not different? Have you seen how some pigs are slaughtered just to become your bacon? Eating dog is not as different as eating any other meat. Dog is meat. Meat is food.
And I'm fucking vegetarian, and I don't give flying ass about them eating dog. It's ignorant asses like you that piss me off though. Oh, and by the way SOME dogs are treated nicely before they become food. Just like how any meat are prepared. Some are treated badly, whereas some are treated nicely. Not all are treated badly, make sure you keep that in mind.
they should eat each others these mother f…….!!!!!!! f….them all!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
how is eating dog meat any different than eating cow meat and pig meat?
this sh*t is disgusting…
its wrong im vietnamese and i noe that boy am i glad i dont live there….
Get over it.
It’s their culture.
“Its their culture, get over it.”
Well, my “culture” is to beat the crap out of worthless insensitive jack offs. If you want, I can leave you my address and teach you something about my “culture” if you decide to drop over.
Don’t be an idiot. Just because something has been done somewhere for some period of time, does not validate it at all. You ever heard of “honer” killings. I know, “its their culture.” So, those are fine with you too. Come on.
Treat dogs as a friend or brother or sister. This is the true way to peace in our enviornment.
What? You are the one to talk. Do you treat chicken, cows, and pigs like friends?
I kick my sister, so I should go kick a dog.
thats normal here in the Philippines… even cats here are delicacies!
I will come and try some !
are you f***ing kidding me? that ain't normal no more..
hell no… it's not normal here in the Philippines… i hate people who eat dogs… do you not hear the dogs cry when they are slaughtered?
do you not hear cow, pig, sheep, and chickens cry as they are slaughtered?
people just have there own opinions
and in my opinion
thats fucking sad to dogs.
Dogs are not Holy cows. Eat them and enjoy! BBQ them on the grill !!!
I doubt that they just take their pet dogs and slaughter them. The dogs they serve are probably raised to be food, just like pigs and cows and chickens are raised to be food.
It’s a different culture and you have to put it into context.
In the first place i think it’s wrong to raise dogs as food because they are very intelligent creatures.This is a very high level of cruelty.
What about whales and monkeys??
We descend from monkeys actually.
It actually seems a bit sad to only eat the “dumb” animals. Since as humans, we are so intelligent and ABOVE all other creatures.
yea, in those cultures, these animals are raised differently depending on whether they’re intended for domestication or consumption. In china, the dogs which are raised for food are called cai gou (food dogs), so they’re really not that different than poultry or cattle.
I don’t think people should be against a culture’s food choices simply because it doesn’t adhere to their own menus. If you must protest, then protest about something like slaughter methods or living conditions on farms. It’s not fair to say one animal’s life is worth more than another’s simply because it’s cuter and you have one of its cousins at home lol
Well you got part of it right, you don't think.
Based on your logic, we could humanely raise Chinese or Koreans for food, and as long as we don't treat them different than cattle, it would be okay to eat them. Pretty damn stupid.
its not the fact that they are raising these animals for consumption what is so horrific here. its the way they do it…. these animals are abused and mistreated living their whole lives in a cage under the worst conditions, but hen they are severely tourtured as they are killed just because they taste better the more they suffer.
SAD PEOPLE POOR DOGS. DOG EATERS IN KOREA DIE DIE DIE
What is even sadder is that you have non dog eaters that defend this sick practice as being culturally acceptable.
Dog eaters everywhere should die, die, die, not just in Korea. And those that accept should suffer as well.
Oh god, you guys are stupid.
yes, very sensitive about protecting dogs, but let's line people up and kill them for the cultural beliefs. gosh, isn't that the way that all those Jews died during the Holocaust, because people thought they should be killed for their beliefs. It is best to stay in your tiny little bubble and fear the big bad world full of people that don't think and act like you. You should probably stop using the internet because you may be exposed to stuff that scares you.
Does ignorance ever keep most of you from posting? Jews were not slaughtered because of THEIR cultural beliefs. THEIR beliefs had nothing to do with anything. Of course, you are completely ignorant of European history, but you have no problem spouting out nonsense like this.
Trust me, no fear of dog eaters here, only contempt.
I think you hate Koreans.
“The time will come when humanity will extend its mantle over EVERYTHING that breathes.”
I did not read that anyone even mentioned to help save the dogs and cats and sign petitions. What will happen when EVERYTHING is gone?
in some part of the world somewhere every amimal that is known to man is consumed. WE’RE HUNGRY! if u dont eat it, who cares? india worships COWS! how do u think they feel US eating billions of them. in Nepal they raise gerbels in their homes, not as pets, but as food. liberals are always pushing for diversity; we’ll swallow this!
I’ve eaten dog before.
It tastes just like any other meat I’ve tried.
I wonder why…OH YEAH because dogs are just like every other animal.
so here’s a big “get over it” to all the ignorant people
Hey f–k face, dogs and cats are not like any other animal. They have been bred for centuries to be with us.
You would be scared to go within 10 feet of a dog, if it had not been bred this way.
You hopeless piece of s–t. I suspect that most people who eat dogs and cats are flat out cowards.
I think dogs are yummy. I hate people who eat cows. Cows are holly !
Koreans are seriously phucked. I say we lob a couple of cruise missiles over there and turn the entire penninsula into glass.
You must be a Republican !
I live and work in Korea and have learned that very few Koreans eat dog meat. Also when I mentioned to my class of middle school girls that Canadians and Americans eat rabbit, bear, moose and deer, the girls were completely disgusted. So, it’s a matter of culture.
Also, there are specific dogs raised to be used as meat. Same as some rabbits are for eatin’ and some are for petting.
What the hell is wrong with you? You are a teacher? This is what the kids have to settle for?
If you cannot see the difference between eating man’s best friend or a moose or rabbit, which guess what, are eaten by carnivores like dogs, than you probably cannot see how you are completely worthless as an educator. You should quit teaching before you help to screw up any young minds.
You know wife beating has a long history in Korea as well. Are you fine with that cultural tidbit as well?
Nobody in Canada eats bear meat, and I know of no Canadians who hunt bear (I am a hunting and fishing guide). However, it's popular amongst US hunters, who I've seen try it after the hunter takes a bear for the very first time. There is usually not any desire for a second taste. Bear must be very quickly field dressed if any of it is to be eaten; bear fat begins to go rancid within minutes.
Few people eat rabbit, but some do. You must only eat rabbit occasionally; a diet of rabbit alone is fatal ("rabbit starvation" refers to those who appear well fed but die from serious vitamin deficiency) because the digestion of rabbit meat removes essential vitamins and minerals from the body.
Moose is delicious and the closest, in my opinion, to beef of all the wild games. Deer is very commonly hunted for food and eaten in western Canada but somewhat less common in urban Eastern Canada. Rural residents do, however.
Maybe we should start eating people too, they are bigger than dogs. Maybe take all the retarded children, elderly people and freshly deceased… serve them up as different flavors. If this doesn't sound fu*ked up to you, then you are probably a dog eater. However, if you have an ounce of caring in your heart then you realize eating dogs is just as cruel as eating people. Someone that cares about you, someone who you can always talk to, is happy to see you when you get home, knows when you are sad and sleeps in your bed…. yes, I'm talking about a dog! Now if you can still say you'll eat a dog, your a sick bastard.
I would rather see every dog eater die than to see one stray dog go without a meal. In fact, I will pray for it. Some people, heck some cultures, should just not exist, and the world would be a better place.
it's thinking like this that led to the holocaust. so thank you Hilter for you're inspiring and thought provoking words of wisdom.
Lack of empathy that devalues life makes it easy to generalize and kill. It has happened throughout history in various cultures, not just Nazi Germany. Most child molesters and serial killers have shown propensity for animal abuse. I would call raising, torturing, and eating companion animals abuse, though I guess you would not. Hmmm? One can connect the dots from here.
Now go back to your philosophy 101 class and reread a bit.
If you have a choice to save your mother or a dog which one would you choose?
I would save my dog and not your mom, but between your mom and your dog, I would save your dog. There is nothing special at all about most people. We are far too abundant.
hey moron, ever bought a dog from a pet store? if you answer yes to this then more likely than not your dog came from a puppy mill where select dogs with the best "attributes" or genes are used soley to breed other dogs for your enjoy ment. they keep them in small cages that are rarely cleaned and often improperly feed the dogs. i know cause my dog was rescued from such a place. when we got him he only had one eye and was going blind in the other one from mis treatment. so get your facts straight before you open you're dumb mouth.
Aah. Cannibalism. With the correct spices, everyone can be a delicacy! It's also a great way to keep population in control. And, I'm not even a dog eater and I choose not to because i'm a picky eater.
Animals all over this earth suffer tremendously because of humans who ignorantly believe themselves superior.
If you look at many of the great writers and philosophers throughout history and from many cultures, (Gandhi, Tolstoy, Schweitzer, etc.) you will find that they were vegetarian or vegan because they were compassionate and wise enough to realize that animals suffer the same as we do.
Do you like to suffer? No? Then why do you want to make other living beings suffer?
you do realize one creature eating another is simply how nature and life works, dont you?
by your logic we should teach all the carnivours (yes i know i can't spell) animals out there to eat only plants. but unfortunately that's not how nature works and neither do our bodies. food is food it doesn't matter where it comes from be it dog, cat, cow, or carrot.
Nothing like a thick juicy steak or hamburger. BBQ time for the summer. Eat meat and enjoy it !
Hitler was a vegetarian too!
Anyone who like to see animals suffer for your eating pleasure is pure evil just sick and very twisted. Hey why don ‘t you try what you do to dogs and cats before you kill them and try it out on a human being maybe it will make human flesh softer and taste better same idea yes??!!
well dolores we won't know until we try now will we. in fact you don't have such a bad idea. what with all the problems overpopulation poses and our increasing lack of resources why don't we just eat people. it makes sense if you take a step back and examine it logically. what do we have a surplus of? people. and what do we need? food. so why not use people as food?
Excellent idea Meg. Let us start first by harvesting the cultures that engage in dog eating.
What make you think the dogs suffer? It is the same with pigs and cows and chickens.
See the practice of beating the dog first to tenderize the meat. Perhaps, you should try to learn a bit about a subject before tossing off a mindless post?
They do that to calves too, no double standards. One dog should be eaten for every calf.
Veal eaters are slime balls as well.
Im korean and my father tried dog soup before.
Its just culture. We are humans and they are animals.
We need to eat to survive.
hong kong people eat raw monkey brains. So i wouldn’t be talking if i were u.
Agree… Don't judge others so fast !
Give me a break. More cultural PC B.S.. Excuse after excuse….
I am taking the next plane to Korea for some dog soup! Anybody want me to bring back a doggie bag?
What are you like 5'2" 110lbs? My dog could kick you butt.
Man’s best-friend? Man has no bestfriend in this world, we are the enemy of nature since the beginning of time. We create light(through fire or neon), an act that reel against the nature, where we rebel against darkness. We kills animals and pick fruits-vegetables for food in abundance, when we should have take only ‘enough’ amount to keep us from hunger. We invented devices that goes against nature….and the biggest rebellious act is taking medicine(or herbs) when we should have left our sickness untreated like other animals.
And about wife-beating……..feminism started in USA in the beginning of 20th century. Before that? You can’t possibly forget whatever fate befallen women in Europe in medieval era, don’t you?
Wife-beating is not a culture exclusively Korean-only. Other cultures, including the caucasian descends, have the same kind of culture that didn’t start to diminish until some decades ago. Hey, even women can’t take part on General Election in the beginning of 1900s!
Don’t forget that, just because that tradition of wife-beating is diminishing faster in your country, doesn’t give you the right to arrogantly pointing finger to others.I have many Korean friends with modern viewpoint, they don’t even raise their voice against their wives.
That said, wife-beating culture is not on the same page with eating-dogs. Unless your current wife is dog, that is.
Well, so your point is that wife beating is okay in some backward ass culture because it used to be okay in some backward ass culture, or at least okay enough so that I should not attack it? Dog eating, wife beating, seems to be consistent….let us abuse our companions. Nothing arrogant in telling the truth.
What? The hell are you talking about?
Morality and decency transcend cultural norms. It is wrong to beat your wife. It is wrong to participate in "honor" killings of your daughter. It is wrong to raise and eat an animal, which for thousands of years has been groomed to be a companion, not livestock. Wife beating and "honor" killing may be more wrong, but so what. A "culture" that accepts morally disgusting behavior is a morally reprehensible culture. These are all acts of insensitivity, bullying, and cowardice, and I would love for their proponents to stop by in Cleveland Ohio for a good lesson in all three. The difference is that these folks would deserve what they would get. I am sick of this jacked up PC justification for bad behavior.
I totaly agree with JM in everything
jm is jm1
WEIRD ASIA NEWS…well, if you want real WEIRD AMERICAN NEWS how about 12 year-old boy rapes 72-year old lady, Jeffery Dalhmer (sp?) found with frezzers full of mutalated body parts. Maybe the same shit happens over there, but is supressed by the govt. and media. Dogs, cats, monkeys and FUCKIN shark fin soup all in one-pot of stew on a Planet called Earth. Yes we all eat some weird shit, but when the going gets weird, the weird turn pro. Just don't WASTE ANYTHING and make death PAINLESS.
I could never eat dogs or cats but i dont look down on people who do it. its a choice.
I look down on anyone who would consume man's best friend. Perhaps, we will get lucky and a few dog eaters will choke on a bone and die.
Scum is scum baby.
Animals are animals…when in Rome. What if your are on a remote island and there are only dogs there?
If you are on a remote island, not "your are," and there are only dogs there, what the hell do you think the dogs have been eating, grass?
The dogs could be eating fish. I am not a fisherman. I'll eat the dogs. I think I will start serving dog to my guest and see if they know the difference. I am BBQing this 4th, all are welcome.
LOL. Show me a dog who can catch a fish, and he will likely be eating you.
The only thing better than dog is cat !!!
LOL, I bet you are scared of both.
I am so scared I have to shot them dead.
Indeed. Most cowards hide behind guns. My point regarding dog eaters proven. Thanks.
to people who treat dogs and cats as food fuck u and may u rot in hell and the people who love these animals god bless u… fuckin chinese, koreans and who ever else eats dogs and cats hope u all die a horrible death… chinese are the worse i wish they would eat themself ugly bastards… they are the worse to all animals they skin dogs alive for thier fur and throw live cats into hot water to cook them… they eat anything that moves as well thats why they so fuckin ugly … them koreans and chinese….
its not a big deal. I'd try it. Way to lack an open mind. Dogs are animals. Thanks to evolution/divine spark/whatever we are smart enough to capture, domesticate, and breed animals as well as consume them if we choose. I think your hatred towards these people for this traditional dish of theirs is ignorant. I guess you'd be happier to see the world over eating subway/mcdonalds/jack-in-the-box or some similar shitty franchise. Well the way things are a lot of the world is already Americanized: suburbs and row upon row of shitty pre-fabricated homes or high-rise apartment buildings. So enjoy your dog meat Korea. Countries the world over: do whatever the hell you want just don't end up like America.
Dogs were not domesticated originally for food. They were brought into the fold to provide protection and assist with the hunt. If you go back thousands of years, you won't find humans eating dogs. This is a relatively new development, even though the dog has had a special relationship with man for many years. Regarding evolution, your decided lack of reasoning power, as displayed by your post, would indicate that the genes in your family really never saw much of a spark. Or maybe, you are an outlier. Whatever the case, why don't you move to North Korea, if you think it is so great. I doubt that you will have much chance to access the internet, but perhaps you could revel in your starvation and enlightenment.
I AM A SOCIOLOGIST….I COULD NEVER KILL ANY ANIMAL FOR CULTURAL REASONS. WHY NOT PUT US HUMANS IN OVENS AND GLAZE US WITH SAUCES OR BBQ US HUMANS….IMAGINE THAT….I'M SOOOOOO HAPPY TO BE A VEGETARIAN AND DO NOT SUPPORT ANIMAL KILLING OF ANY KIND. THIS IS SICK AND FAWKED UP….IM GLAD IM NOT ASIAN OR ANIMAL KILLER.
My god, you people are fucking retarded. Hating a country and culture for doing what THEY'RE RAISED UP IN? Hating a culture for eating dogs MADE TO BE EATEN when you're probably shoving your face with bacon and whatnot? If I had a pig for a pet (because you know, they're a very intelligent species and it's my best friend in the whole wide world lolol!), do you think I'm justified in hating every single pork-eater out there?
The only reason why most people look down on dog-eaters is because they probably have a cute little terrier as a pet, or see them glorified and all lovable and smart on media or some shit like that.
To North Korea, a dog might as well be like a cow to us. We eat cows, okay, does that mean the culture that actually WORSHIPS cows should bash us for daring to treat ourselves to a nice steak? So we have little doggies as pets; let's bash people who eat them!
You call dog eaters sick, but I find the lot of you even more sickening. i have a special relashunship w/ my dog lol i luv him so much y wuld any1 eat one!!!!111 Hey, dumbass, let's also add: I'm also a privileged American who knows what it's like to have dogs as pets in the first place, and have never actually experienced North Korean culture firsthand to know why people do the things they do because it's integrated in their culture and thus, considered normal for them. I love how everyone assumes dogs are some lovable, ideal, "man's best friend" type of pet. Yeah, they are, but not the ones made for eating, amirite?
What reason do you have to hate people like this? I honestly don't get it. Does it make you happy to think yourself superior because you don't eat dogs?
Yeah, I'm a vegetarian, so obviously I must be better than meat-eaters, right? Because all animals are my friends lolol. ^_^
Check out the videos of the so called "food dogs. " They don't act like livestock, they act like your pet, because they are basically no different from your pet. If you weren't some lazy ass loud mouth, you might do a little research and realize that this "culture" is a 20th century phenomenon, not some long standing tradition. I hate people who do bad things, and I don't let them off the hook because they are surrounded by people who do bad things. It is that simple. You should be able to understand it when put in those terms. Amirite?
I cannot see anything taboo or controversial on people eating dog/cat meat, its just meat.
It isnt as if the resturants go around at night to peoples houses to slaughter their pets.
Funny enough, a lot more people would react more passionately against the eating of certain animals than they are of people killing others in ‘wars’
Soon enough, we’ll probably live in a society with animals out numbering us.
I’d completely agree with Yumi.
@JM, instead of complaining about other cultures in an online response forum, hows about doing something for real? Like hold anti-dog eating campaigns and such.
You state: ” I hate people who do bad things, and I don’t let them off the hook because they are surrounded by people who do bad things” and yet you would put forth real life threats to others, in wanting to hurt someone in real life for having a different view doesnt that make you one of those ‘people who do bad things’?
And at ANIMAL LOVER, you do know that your ancestors probably ate each other to survive. Cannibalism dates back to the beginning of human existance.
” THIS IS SICK AND FAWKED UP….IM GLAD IM NOT ASIAN OR ANIMAL KILLER” I too am glad you arent Asian, least we arent ‘animal lovers’ That, DISGUSTS me. 🙂
I surely HATE to be in a room with most of those who posted in this thread. So arrogant, ignorant and stubborn, unable to accept any others opinions.
Let us go slowly here. Eliminating people from society that do bad things is not bad in itself. It is good. Let us take a child killer for example. Perhaps, you would like to spend time with him shooting the breeze and watching together as your kid plays, but most of us would rather like to see him disappear. To not eliminate him from society and let him patrol the streets looking for young prey would not make for a greater good, it would be clearly wrong. Perhaps, some think that he should be jailed, not killed, but then there are many who will have to interact with him while he is incarcerated; many whose lives will suffer as a result. The best, most decent solution, is to eliminate him. Get it now?
Funny how all the open minded souls on this board who see no problem with eating companion animals, have put forth no rational response to the contention that it is wrong to eat companion animals simply because they are companion animals bread for centuries to bond with man, not bred for centuries to be food with no bond with man. "You know, it is simply culture man." No, it is not "culture" simply because you call it such. "Its just meat," and so are we stupid. See how this really doesn't work your argument, unless of course you are pro cannibal and come from a long line of cannibals.
So, unless one of you laid back cool geniuses actually put forth a rebuttal, I can only conclude that you are all too stupid, too lazy, or too xenophobic to do so. Oh wait, there there is one other answer, there is no rational rebuttal to the proposal that there is no humane way to raise and kill dogs and cats for human consumption. Oh, I know, "not cool, its just culture." Friggin' broken record.
Finally, there is nothing more arrogant or ignorant than attacking the arguments of others with your opinion. Pathetic, yes.
it's food. xD. i can't believe people are crying over this. me yeah i'd never eat it, i'd try it to say i did. but i bet my tummy couldn't take. but i do luv bunny :p so hey i might like dog. yes i'm an american. and no i'm not at tree huggin hippie
JM1: I read your arguments and they don’t make a valid point. Of course you would feel angry if other people ate dogs because you probably have a dog that you are emotionally attached to. Well…if I grew up loving a cow, I probably wouldn’t eat it…DUH!!!!!!!!!!!
Stop hurting everyone’s feelings…Maybe Americans should eat dog, since they’re probably the number one country for obesity…I wrote a paper on abuse and raising animals for food is not considered abuse in professional terms…also, abuse is everywhere, regardless of country…so don’t pinpoint Koreans about a correlation between animal/wife abuse that you can’t even prove. And finally, do something productive with your life instead of writing unnecessary comments every other day…esp. with cuss words…shameless.
Ryan: I doubt anyone in your extended family has earned what I have, but thanks for your concern. Your likely a lackluster humanities major hoping for entrance into a third tier law school, so you probably can't fathom folks taking a few minutes on the web and still being productive otherwise. Anyway, the cultural tradition regarding spousal abuse in that country is well known to anyone who actually knows anything about the place, unlike you, and was pointed out, if I recall to make a point that cultural traditions alone provide no validity for an activity. I have no problem hurting someone's feelings, if they sanction abuse and suffering that is clearly unnecessary. Understand teacup? As mentioned repeatedly, a dog has centuries of programming, which makes it different than a cow. Otherwise, they would not be suitable for whole sale cultivation. Simply too difficult, too violent. Once again, not one of you "open minded" geniuses has made any argument of any substance to support your horrid position.
I have a dog, and I don't eat dogs…but it doesn't mean I hate everyone who does, or EVEN associated with the people who do. JM1 and such, stop sounding so ignorant…did you just realize that?…I won't even add in some nasty comment like…" my dog can kick your butt." haha, very intellectual…and RATIONAL.
I am guessing that you are not a child molester either? So then, do you like child molesters too? Would you to spend quality time with child molesters? Simple argument here to follow, right? Oh yeah, its basically yours.
You are actually worse than the actual consumers of dog meat. Anyone who actually owns a dog and condones this type of abuse, because they fancy themselves open minded, is nothing more than a coward and a hypocrite of the worst type. I do stand corrected. A lower life form exists. I guess I was "ignorant."
dog is my pet not my food you people are nasty!!!!
everyone is F#$% up
Ok…I’m South Korean. Before you say “ehmagawd, a f*cking Korean!!!! She must eat dogs!!! DIE DIE DIE” etcetera, I just wanna let u ppl know that I NEVER heard of people eating dogs here until I read this article. Being rather horrified, of course, being the owner of two adorable westies, I looked it up on Wikipedia. Dog eating has been common since 4 AD, more than 2,000 years ago, not the 20th century, morons. Koreans at that time mostly raised crops for food and cattle were valuable working animals for farming. For some reason There were no chickens or pigs at that time so the only meat they could eat was dog. Since then, over 2000 years the taste for dog has developed in Koreans, but it was banned in 1984. People are still eating dog meat illegally, but millions of Koreans are opposing that (we aren’t cavemen…o.O). And science has proved that pigs are more intelligent than dogs (4th smartest animals after dolphins,monkeys and elephants). But are we giving them the same love and care we give dogs?! NO. We are slaughtering them in various inhumane ways just to make ourselves happier. So,as a conclusion, I suggest you, JM1 to stfu before actually doing some research :3.
PS dog meat is allowed in Canada as long as it’s inspected before being eaten. Though I’m not sure if people actually eat it.
Of course it is so, because Eunice found it on Wikipedia. Sorry, but one painting does not a definitive conclusion make. Are you aware of your own cultural and religious traditions? Consider the AD kingdoms and the Buddha? Oh, goodness Eunice, you get an F.
Did you read about animal intelligence on Wiki as well? What about whales, parrots, etc? You bother to spend 3 minutes reading one article and you are directing others to study? Again, F.
I would advise that you do a little more research into your own history before opening your mouth and openly displaying your ignorance and sloth.
this is so messed up demi lavato was discusted
