Wait a minute! just because in the US culture dog means pet does not give us the right to tell others how to live. It is that buttinsky attitude of colonialism that still prevails Western culture. Those countries and their people have the right to progress in their fashion. Many are emerging from the effects of tribal conflicts and are generations away from being nations as we know them.

I didn't think anything else done to animals would shock me, but they still do, why are so many countries so abusive to the poor innocent animals, they make me sick, literally .....including the U.S.A.I know some countries have always done this, but I hate it ..

Being a rescuer of many dogs and a transporter for many more saved from premature death, this practice sickens me. Being vegan at home and vegetarian while traveling, I realize that we in the Americas, as long as we slaughter cows, pigs, chickens, and other fellow members of the Animal Kingdom by the billions year in and year out, we have no business telling people in faraway lands that their feeding habits are morally inferior to ours. As William Ralph Inge so eloquently said to all of us:
"We have enslaved the rest of the animal creation, and have treated our distant cousins in fur and feathers so badly that beyond doubt, if they were able to formulate a religion, they would depict the Devil in human form.

I don't care what their reasoning is or if i'm too emotional, but this business of people eating dogs and cats is disgusting. Disgusting and sick. It needs to be stopped. Even Switzerland is guilty of this and, of course, China,. Now THESE people. It's awful. I won't tell you what I think of skunks like these because it wouldn't be printable.

Scot Haakon, you can take your rationalization and shove it where the sun doesn't shine. Animals have a hard enough time as it is without you standing up for the idiots that feed on them like vermin. Because vermin is what they are. In this day and age when animals mean profit, we have the responsibility to save them, not eat them.

Dogs are the one species on earth that live to love us even when we are unlovable. They are not food. They are companion animals as they are ever faithful, devoted, intelligent sentient beings that have the same needs, wants and desires as we do. These are domesticated companion beings which puts his is on the same level as eating a baby or a child, Its despicable, unconscionable and indefensible.

Signed and noted. He called it a cultural thing. Well here in the US slavery was a cultural thing. In some other countries human sacrifices were a cultural thing. Some cultural things are best left behind. If you want to be taken seriously as a country, come into the 21st century. As the saying goes, if you are not part of the solution, you are part of the problem.

signed but if you barbecue beef, hog, fowl or sheep, you are no better than these people. A life is a life and if you eat meat then you are taking a life from a being that wants to live. When you point a finger, you have to look at how many are pointing back at you. It's 3 if you don't get this.

I have signed but believe that it is a culture difference. We regard the dog as a pet and they likely don't. Meat is meat and a life is a life. There are surely people who have goats as pets while there are cultures who consume goat meat. Etc., etc. ...
