The thing is we literally created dogs to be companions. We bred them for that specific purpose. That is why they are cute, loyal, and friendly. They were genetically engineered (through selective breeding) to be that way. It's a little difficult to eat a creature we created to be a friend, companion, and employee.

It's a different culture. Dogs are to some chinese what cows are to us.

To call it bad or disgusting is a little hypocritical.


Lol kid logic.

Even if you pet and love a calf from birth, they won't love you back.

No doubt these Chinese mass breed these dogs and the dogs try to show affection

huge difference bro....

When i hear about this I wonder do they just gather up stray dogs or do they keep them like we do pigs. One thing they would have to be kept in cages and then cooked so prob more like chicken... pretty cruel treatment for people who have been known to pay millions for a single dog.

Maybe they are eating those dogs now because they can't get ride of them any other way....

ok, so i know its culture and all to them like goats and etc for us, but that doesnt mean you cramp up like 10 dogs in one cage and they can barely even breath. Im planning on staying away from those places -.- too many emotions to handle cuz people here keep them as companions while over there, there getting butchered and treated horribly before that


Have you ever read Kurt Vonnegut's Slaughterhouse Five about the meat processing plants and culture we had in America? A lot of it changed, but some of it has not.

You need to watch this: http://www.crunchyroll.com/silver-spoon
Animals that tend to live in groups will show affection for those that raise them if raised with care. If they are not shown affection, then they are going to be more "wild" and "vicious." If you ever go turkey hunting, those suckers are downright vicious! But if you go to a decent turkey farm, they are perfectly fine with people.

I think people are getting emotional over this simply because we are accustomed to having dogs as pets. It's the norm in our societies to have dogs as pets, nothing else. What we see as pets, others might see as food.

However, what I find disturbing is the way they treat them before killing and the fact that they sometimes steal them from families where they were their pets.

I'd eat that little rascal. Looks tender. As long as it isn't anyones pet/property then I don't see anything wrong with it.

So this creature that has been a critical part of keeping predators, brigands, and pests away from me and my fields, offers its keen sense of smell to detect explosives, victims of natural disasters, and escaped convicts I'd have a hard time finding on my own, and guides the blind throughout our streets ought to be my meal even if I'm not starving?

You do what you like, but I'm going to wait until I'm starving to get rid of such a useful creature.
