Dog meat, pig meat, cow meat, what is the difference? Recently, the Globe and Mail wrote an article about how dog meat really shouldn’t make a difference. The CBB reported that dog meat is legal in Canada if properly inspected. Incredible. Not often do people really bring the connection between a domesticated animal and live stock. As eating dog is a common practice in some parts of Asia, it’s not the case in North America, where the dog is revered as a beloved part of the family. Imagine sitting to Thanksgiving dinner with a roast dog in the centre? Extremely unpalatable for most to even think of such an image, nevertheless, it does happen.
This article brings the question of: Why love one but eat the other?
Pigs are given a bad rep being misunderstood as being “dirty”, that could not be further from the truth. Pigs do not sweat and thus need to keep cool somehow, be it mud or water. They are incredibly smart and have been known to save humans from life threatening situations.
Amazing how this intelligent little creature can be treated so badly by humans, yet dogs are lavished in luxury in North America and have a seat reserved next to the master of the house. What does this article mean to you? Would you eat dog meat?
