Is it right to kill dogs for meat?
Posted 9/22/07 , edited 9/22/07
Previously posted issues about the illegal dog meat trades in the Philippines got me thinking about what people thought about eating dog meat in general. Is it moral?

In my opinion it is moral. As long as it's legal, healthy, and done in a proper way. The illegal dog meat trades in the Philippines I feel is a wrong way to go about it. For they are keeping dogs in poor conditions before they kill them.


In the sweltering heat of a typical summer evening in the Philippines, 100 terrified dogs are packed tightly into a wooden crate in the closed cabin of a large truck. They struggle to breathe through mouths tied tightly with plastic string. With no room to move, piled on top of one another, their desperate whimpers are met with silence. Eight have already died and three others are close behind.

If you're going to kill anything, you should atleast treat it right before you do so. Have respect for the animal that's giving it's life for your food. Such as this process described for slaughter houses:


are received by truck or rail from a ranch, farm, or feedlot.
Animals are herded into holding pens (see Judas goat).
Animals receive a preslaughter inspection.
Animals are rendered insensible (unconscious) by stunning (method varies)
Animals are hung by hind legs on processing line.
A main artery is cut, the animal's blood drains out and it dies.
Animal's hide/skin/plumage is removed.
Carcass is inspected and graded by a government inspector for quality and safety. (by the Food Safety Inspection Service in the US, and CFIA in Canada)
Carcass is cut apart and the body parts separated.

Where they're stunning the animals before they die, therefore they aren't feeling any pain.

So I do think it's okay to eat dog meat. Not because it's their culture and we should accept it, but because dog meat is just like any cow meat, rabbit meat, and chicken meat. We keep rabbits as pets, in yet we still kill them for food. What do you think?

Please note I'm only using the Philippines illegal dog meat trade as an example of poor living conditions for dogs that will be used for meat. I'm not discriminating any Filipino because of that one example.

Please stay on topic during this discussion. Let's make sure this one doesn't get locked ^-^!

Well, I'm not..it's true, people eat animals, and dogs are animals, but since I have one that's as adorable as one can get, I can't ever see it as normal.
