    Default The dog meat trade.

    **WARNING - DISTURBING IMAGES **


    Well it's been discussed a few times here....but to be honest apart from one little clip i had never really known what the go was. I guess i do now.

    This video is informative ....but somwhat disturbing.....so you have been warned. If you dont want to see it DONT WATCH IT !!!!

    If you want to see the trade exposed for what BULL$H!T it is then watch on.

    These guys are responsible for also ending 'Bear Dancing' in india.....a video well worth watching and i'll post it up aswell, but the work the WSPCA do is amazing and if you have a you tube account they are well worth subscribing too, at the very least to show some support for this great organisation.
    I've learnt alot about what animals go through all around the world just from watching these videos.

    Yes, meat is meat........but it dosnt have to be done like this.


    The thumbnail for the vid is bad enough so i'll put some space between ths text and it to hide it for those that dont want to see it. I'm doing my best not to upset anyone so dont shoot the messenger.

    The dog meat trade claims there are lots of health benefits from eating dog, from increasing men's libido to improving womens' skin, but these are superstitious lies cooked up by the industry itself. You might as well eat Rhino horn or Bear gallbladder for all the good it will do. The industry in Korea also claims that dog is a traditional food, but it's actually more to do with profit and false health benefits than tradition.

    In actual fact dog meat is not particularly nutritious and there is evidence that it increases the risk of cancer. Since dogs are predators not herbivores, the quality of the meat is not as good as a cow or sheep. The dog meat trade belongs on the garbage heap like whale meat and bear bile.

    I won't watch the video but I get the gist of it and what goes on.

    Thank you Mosh for your info. I also understand that dolphin is similar, because they eat other fish, particularly often largish fish they naturally have higher dangerous minerals in their body, making them not a good food source for human consumption.

    I understand different cultures, beliefs etc, but why do humans have to be so inhumane, what is it, why when we can cure so many things, invent things to make it possible to communicate around the world etc, can we not progress in this area? Mind boggling.

    I've got an indonesian friend who in the past has eaten dog in her village, she said that where she was from you had to be carefull sometimes because due to people accidently eating a pet dog. She did say that dog meat isn't a nice tasting meat and that it's very tough. I've told her I've got a dog now that will eat her

    To put some perspective on it, we Westerners don't have a squeaky clean record when it comes to our meat trade, especially in Australia. The Kangaroo meat industry is quickly turning into one of the largest wildlife exterminations the world has ever seen. Every year we ship thousands of sheep in appalling conditions to countries like Indonesia and Pakistan, where they are frequently mistreated before being ritualistically killed in quite a brutal fashion. Many of them don't even survive the trip, the conditions are so bad.

    In general the meat industry is very inhumane and wasteful, and probably something that should be gradually phased out as we look for alternatives or just eat less meat.

    Yes the meat trade is pretty horrific all round. By no means am I singling out any one country/race etc.

    It's just horrifying that our own kind can be so cruel.

    And as for the cancer... doesn't all red meat increase the risk of cancer? Legumes, my friends. Eat legumes!! Chickpea burgers are delicious

    Can't watch the video. I saw a doco that touched on this 20 years ago and it still haunts me. Prompted me to become a vegetarian for a while. Now I love kangaroo steak... I think it's more humane than eating mass produced meat.

    I remember from that doco that the Koreans believe that meat gets more tender if the animal suffers pain when they die. Charming myth, hey. They eat cats too. I won't tell you what they showed on that in that doco but it gave me nightmares.

    But I must say that I do think it's a bit hypocritical to tell others what meat is acceptable to eat and what isn't. Hindus are outraged about killing cows and muslims think people eating pigs is just disgusting. I also know Australians who won't eat pig "because they are clever". That leaves a bad taste in my mouth because it insinuates that less intelligent creatures don't deserve the kind of protection that their smarter cousins do. I'm from Europe. It brings up bad associations.

    But obviously whatever meat anyone eats, it should be raised and killed in a humane way. If everyone could just agree on that, the world would be a happier place.

    I was under the impression that roo's where shot. is this not so ??

    I dont have a issue with a animal been caught or bred humanely and then slaughtered quickly be it a bullet or a brain spike.
    As a fisherman i have learnt to instantly kill and bleed any fish i want to keep for a feed. The quality of the meat is sooooooo much better when handled correctly. A fish left to stress and flop around while slowly dying will always taste worse than a brain spiked fish. (obviously i cant shot them LOL)

    I assume the same thing happens with any animal flesh. It's not hard......i just dont get how any human could lock up any animal in a tiny cage and let it stress and die slowly.

    Karma has a lot of work to catch up on with these people.
