theres that and they also don't put the dogs down in a humane way. they're often tortured before their cooked. ie. boiled alive to get all the fur off of them which also "enriches" the meat because of the adrenaline that pumps through them as their being boiled alive.



i'm depressed now and not coming back into this thread. fuck you gs8 for bumping it.

Like I said in my reply, I have nothing against people who want to eat dog meat. However rounding them up into cages isn't like farming or hunting. And you see how they treat them too (they idiotically think that torturing them makes them taste better)

There are some things fine with this practice, but specifically what these people are doing is fucked up.

Let's set it straight. This video talks about the Yulin festival. As far as the video is concerned, most of the dogs used for the festival are from dog farms. With a small percentage being from the streets, as they are concerned that there isn't enough to go around.

The reporter is fuckin cute.

Some places like India treat cows which we massacre as Gods.
Dogs are exponentially more intelligent than cows or chicken. Thus, humankind has taken a liking to them. Most people don't want to consume other intelligent beings I guess? We associate cows and chicken with food. Dogs are our companions.

Since it's 2015, we expect China to be a "civilized" country. "Civilized" countries don't eat dogs. That's why I think most people are outraged at this.

I completely disagree with saying eating "farmed dogs" is the same as cattle and chickens.

Dogs are instinctively trustful and loyal to humans. Their lives revolve around us and they react to our every move, every sound. They rely on us to provide for them, and in exchange they are loyal companions. We have a special bond with them that's unlike any other, as I'm sure any dog owner would attest to. They're truly man's best friend, and eating them is a betrayal of that friendship.

Just like a slave relies on it's master. Humans have made dogs useless dogs could and some still can survive on there own.

well yea. the goal is to demonize china and chinese people as all dog eaters. to portray chinese are evil and cruel. old trick, works well, westerners love exposing these kind of issues (such as portraying chinese eat dogs, corrupt money buy houses in bc, human rights in china), turning situtation into a them vs us scenario. westerners actually dont want these issues to be resolved in china, because they want to be the white knight that have the upperhand when it comes to ethics and moral.

Agreed, but I would like to point out that, maybe, all animals at least more than you might expect, have that loyalty/behavior. For example, about 20 years ago my cousin got gifted two chicks, her parents did not let her keep them so we took them and raised them, they lived in the yard. Where I lived all yards are fenced or walled. Surprisingly, as they grew they behaved like dogs, they would greet us when walking out of the house or when coming back home, all excited, as strangers would pass by the house they would defend the property just like a dog would, without the barking of course, but they would make sounds. They would also come on command, they would not play fetch though. Also if a stranger/friend they were not used to would come in they would attack/defend us. We did end up giving them away... my mom would go crazy, they pooped everywhere in her garden, tables chairs cars...
Same story with my uncle who raised a pig as house pet.

So maybe eating "farmed animals" is the same, either it be dog, cat, cattle, duck.... since they can all be loyal to their owners. It's all about the purpose we raise them for.

I would like to add, we are no better with our rodeos. Some of those bulls, calves are totally peaceful, but for our entertainment, we whip them, taze them in order to get them to play the part.

At least the asian culture with eating dogs/cats... is about feeding yourself.

At the rodeo it's for entertainment, I find that troubling and shameful.

I know full well that laws are rarely enforced in China unless it's to protect the government itself. But when the public is highly concerned, they tend to act.

If this is just one group of people doing this once a year, it would be quite easy to put an end to it, if they wanted to.

If anyone has bothered to do some research... Dog meat is actually not banned or illegal in many western nations. It's legal in Canada.

I'm not sure why people concentrate their efforts on one festival in one town when animals all over the world have their throats slit and bled alive under the guise of being Kosher or Halal. Pick the easy target that won't fight back?

I think it is because of our economy, its a lot whole better than it is compare to other countries. If i was poor and living in a bad environment, I would too eat dog as I have to struggle to live. Once you guys have visit third world countries you'll realize how lucky you are to live in Canada.

The rational people are not bringing up the point necessarily about them eating dog meat. Its the barbaric treatment they receive prior to death.

Lulz as if American or Canadian meat factories(yes factories, because there is almost no such thing as ranches anymore) treat cows and chickens any better? And we're supposed to be the "civilized" people. Ignorance is the real reason people are so butthurt dogs are being eaten.

You act like the people criticizing this AREN'T criticizing treatment of animals anywhere else. I have issues with how animals are treated in this country as well. However comparing boiling a dog alive to the single bolt that kills a cow in an instant isn't valid.

I stopped eating Crab and Lobster after watching them get thrown in boiling water.

My family used to bring them home from the store in a plastic bag. They would chirp, move around in the bag and try to get out.

This was over 20 years ago. I think they got it from Rupert Fish Market. Needless to say, I don't miss eating them.
