I’m a vegetarian, so it really gets to me when I see any animals going to slaughter. We pass the pig trucks on the interstate sometimes, and I just want to go save them all… and cows make me so sad! There’s a cow on the farm where I keep my horse that used to be a milk cow, and she’s the sweetest thing ever. 

also, a few years ago a truck overturned by where I grew up – they were illegally transporting horses to slaughter. It makes me sick.

How is it any different than us eating cow? In indian cultures, that’s considered a major sin.

It’s not MY culture, but they also eat pigeons in many parts of the world. And beef liver. And animal hearts. How is that any weirder? Dogs are just an animal in the end…not that I”d eat one, but I completely get how some other countries do. Heck, I’ve eaten goat meat.

Though I can’t see myself eating dog many people do and I don’t see there being anything wrong with it….it’s not much different than cows, pigs, chicken, etc being slaughtered.  Yes, I know it seems wrong because dogs are domesticated animals, but you need to think that people can also have pigs as pets.  I think it is a cultural thing and just because we see something as wrong in our eyes doesn’t mean we should judge or criticize because what we do in our society is often considered wrong or inhumane in others.

I don’t think it’s any different than farm animals being slaughtered for meat.  In fact, these puppies probably have a better environment than the usual factory farms.

I have several friends who have traveled or studied overseas and have eaten dog.  It’s just a cultural difference.  I’m sure there are people here in the U.S. that would look at me like I’m crazy for eating deer.

I’ve eaten dog.  Personally I get sick to my stomach thinking of people eating veal more than dog cause of how they’re treated.

ps. dog tastes like chicken. 🙂

We saw cooked dog when we traveled to Vietnam last summer. As many other Bees have said, it isn’t something I want to do, because I have an emotional attachment to dogs. But I don’t think it is necessarily any more wrong than eating any other kind of animal.

EDIT: I have a strong attachment to rabbits, but I regularly support Heifer International by buying a trio of rabbits for impoverished families to raise for meat.

I think it’s really different because dogs and housecats have been domesticated for thousands of years for human companionship. And it’s laughable to say they have any regulations for these things. The images I saw where dogs chewing at the cages till their mouths bled.

Predator meat isn’t very nutritional either. There’s a reason we eat cows and not wolves.

Culture isn’t an excuse for cruelty. Some Japanese eat whales. I’m not giving them a free pass because it’s part of their culture.

@ ribbons: how is the meat of a predator less nutritious than the meat of an herbivore? For food chain reasons, herbivores are easier to raise en masse, but I’m not seeing your connection to nutrition. Most fish we eat are carnivores.

I dont think that just because dogs and cats have been domesticated makes their pain and suffering any different than the pain and suffering that any other animal experiences.

So is this post about cruelty of animal slaughter or the “ickiness” of eating a dog? I think they’re both VERY different issues! Lots of animals are treated poorly before they are slaughtered.

I wish we had a little button for “agrees” or “likes” (we don’t need a “disagree” or “dislike”), so I could just easily say I agree with ejs4y8.

I agree that they are two different things.  I think the OP touched on both subjects.
