Off the Menu

If you were hoping to try some authentic Chinese dog cuisine while in Beijing for the Olympics, you're out of luck if you eat at the officially designated Olympic restaurants.

The Chinese government has asked the sanctioned restaurants to strike dog off their menus.

Good call! That would totally freak out the Westerners!

According to the report, dog is eaten by some Chinese for its purported health-giving qualities.

What do U think? Should peeps be eating dogs???

Is eating a dog any different than eating a cow or a chicken???

    Hah.
    Of course it's different.
    Dogs are domesticated whilst cows and chickens aren't.
    I mean, I'm not a person that enjoys having cows and chickens killed for food, I perish the though.
    Though, I still eat the stuff.
    I have a dog and wow, I am pretty sure I wouldn't want her to be eaten.

  26. Eww says – reply to this


    26

    I, personally, think its gross~ but then again, Mario is too! But back on point, look at other countries… they worship cows and have other things we eat as pets. So I really can't bash them. Its what they're used to. We could go somewhere and say we eat cows and they'd think it was wrong because they have cows at pets, or another animal as pets.

    you know, it seems wrong and disgusting to us Americans, however, in different parts of the world, it's part of their cultures and is not taboo to them. Not all cultures are exactly the same.

    I'd try it but I have problems with the videos I've seen of how cruel they are to the dogs before they kill and eat them. It's fine to kill and eat an animal but give it a nice life beforehand and kill it humanely please!

    I don't think that eating a dog is any different than eating a cow. I don't think that we should base what is food and what is not on cutness. Pigs are smarter than dogs and we eat pigs. Dogs and cats are the Sacred Cows of North America. Unless you are a vegetarian, you have no right to judge.

    44

    Exactly. It's no different, we just seem to think one is cuter. Pigs are as smart as three year olds, but we slaughter them anyways. I don't eat anything with a face or a mother.

    I've been vegan for 16 years, so…eating any kind of animals doesn't appeal to me. Plus, I love my dog more than anything in the world, as I am sure you love Teddy. Really, how is eating a cow any different from eating a dog?

    I'm an ardent dog lover.
    I'd have to be starving to death.
    .
    No other creature bonds with humans the way that canines' do. It would be the last animal I'd eat. I understand if you've nothing else. But to eat them as a "delicacy"? Not in most developed countries, no. And not in my kitchen!
    .
    A bull's wee wee may have great "healing power", too. Doesn't mean I'm going to eat that, either.
    Pass the ramen, please.

    eating dogs is different here in america because they are domesticated and treated as pets.
    which is fine by me, i love animals-in all forms, however, dogs, cats, rabbits, etc have been domesticated to become a part of families and to be a pet, not food :D



  52. 52

    I'm anti-meat in general… the only people im really worried about are the ones who are disgusted with eating a dog but shove chicken/cow/fish/etc down their throat like they might win a fucking prize. Dogs are domesticated for the most part and have personas… but so does every other living thing. Morons.

    someone said dogs have personality… cows do too… whales are intelligent but the japanese eat them… some "western" countries, america included, eat horses too don't they? australians eat kangaroos… i personally think people who eat meat shouldn't get all holier than thou and say eating dogs are gross… kinda hypocritical. rabbits are kept as pets too… we see that in menus here and in france don't we???

    CUTE DOG!

    Dogs are intelligent creatures capable of giving unconditional love, because they were bred to be companions.

    Cows and chickens don't even know they're dead. They were bred to be food.

    dogs are pets, not food. we love dogs so lets not eat them :)

    58

    @ Alice,

    you do not need meat to survive. I have not eaten meat in 5 years and YES eating a dog is just like eating a cow. They are all living beings! Gross!

  59. UMMMM says – reply to this


    59

    They will eat anything in China. Sorry. They do have cats and dogs as pets as I have heard that there are many left ownerless due to the recent earthquake. The problem is they don't have animal shelters there because they regard these animals as food. So they need other countries to adopt them. It is sick that they care so little for animals that as soon as someone looses a pet there is a carry-out ready to chop it up and hang it in the window.

    Eating animals is vile and abhorrent all the way across the board.

  61. ck says – reply to this

    No it's not different. Hence why we shouldn't eat ANY of them.

  62. Gz0n3 says – reply to this


    62

    Cows chickens and pigs are domesticated too, you fools. when was the last time you have seen a cow chicken or pig in the wild? Never, because they don't exist.
    These are all domesticated versions of wild animals. If you eat meat then eating another animal, (Rabbit dog cat ect.) esspecially ones domesticated for it should be no problem and its not gross.

    Bambi = Yummy.
    Buggs Bunny = Breakfast.
    Lassie = Good eats!

    Get over yourselves.

  63. Josep says – reply to this


    63

    Of course a dog is different from a cow or a chicken. Cows and chickens aren't domesticated pets. That is so gross. I think I would vomit my brains out if I was served dog.

  64. tj says – reply to this


    64

    no it's no different! what's the difference between a dog and a pig????? one is cuter?? they both suffer to become meat, there's no difference. i hope all of you think about that when your petting your puppies and eating a burger. so gross and hypocritical!

  65. UBERF says – reply to this


    65

    Eating a dog is fucking disgusting and barbaric. These are animals that millions of people have as pets. They become a family member pretty much! Disgusting. Appalling. Disturbing. Have we not already had enough animals to eat!? Crossing the line in so many ways.



  66. 66

    theyy breed a special kind of dog that hardly any people like cause their ugly. But i think its cruel as :l.

    I don't think it is. It's still an animal. Westerners just don't like it because we're used to having dogs as pets, not as dinner.

    71

    Yes, it is exactly the same as eating poultry, beef, or pork here, except the dogs are not kept in as cruel of conditions as chickens, cows, or pigs here in the USA. I have travelled to China extensively, and have been explicit about not wanting to eat meat for "religious reasons". This is respected by Chinese. You can say that you do not eat pork or dog meat, and that will also be respected. The grossest thing I ever found my self eating was 'drunken crab'-the crab was still alive but had been partially paralyzed by being bathed in strong rice wine. It didn't realize it was still alive, and was completely horrified. UNTIL WE FIND A WAY TO HUMANELY SLAUGHTER (AND MONITOR THIS PRACTICE) AT LARGE SCALE CATTLE, POULTRY, AND HOG FARMS, WE HAVE NOTHING TO SAY ABOUT CHINESE EATING DOGS.

    72

    personally, i would not want to eat a dog b/c in america dogs are beloved pets and friends. the thought of eating your friend is gross. BUT that doesnt make it wrong for someone else to eat dog, especially if they are raised where dogs are not held in such high regard. i think the chinese are just doing them. who cares? you can say the same for fish. but i have had fish as pets and dont have a problem eating them. lol. some feel eating ANY animal is wrong. so, im just going to say, every culture is different.

  73. Megan says – reply to this


    73

    I don't see the problem with eating dogs, what's wrong with that? We eat chickens, and yes dogs are kept as pets but in some placed so are chicken. I have no problem what so ever with eating any animal as long as it tastes fine, and had a good life and was killed humanley

    I'm an American who just got back from living in China for 10 months. There was nothing more disturbing to me than walking through a market and seeing fresh dog hanging there. I almost took a picture of it, but thought it was just too gross. I could tell you all kinds of stories…

  75. UBERF says – reply to this


    75

    Not to mention the amount of people who drool over the thought of a steak alone is fucking disgusting. I know quite a few people who obsess over meat. We need to stop being so selfish. We have the intelligence to keep ourselves healthy and living WITHOUT meat, yet so many just can't stand the thought of doing without their daily animal on the dinner plate. Chinese especially eat everything. If you need meat and flesh so badly, go eat your relatives you heartless bastards.

    the only place in china where you could eat a dog is in places where restaurants
    don´t have menues- areas that are so poor people can´t afford to cover their bodies with clothing, let alone eat regularly.i would reckon people all over the world in a situation like that would love to have meat every once in a while…and can´t afford to be as stuck up as wannabee hollywood blogsters…bet that in cuba or as i said any poor place fot that matter, cats ond dogs and hares are occasionally on the menu u ignorant, xenophobic son of a…dog.

    The Chinese government is despicable. Why do they care what the rest of the world thinks, when they are just going to go back to doing the same thing after the Olympics are over. They deserve severe sanctions, not just for this but everything else they are doing against people, animals and the environment!!

    84

    why are people angry that some people are actually offended that the thought of people eating dogs. It IS different than eating cow or chicken because people treat dogs as a member of the family and would you seriously consider eating a member of your family. AND if people from other cultures are going to be visiting as guests because of an event it makes sense to make those guest feel welcome by taking away things that those cultures find offensive

    Um…i definitely wouldnt eat dog…but doesnt india or a culture there not eat cows??….dont hate on china cuz some people there eat dogs…you should hate on all the stuff we eat like fast food and shit..makin us FAT!!

  86. smitt says – reply to this


    86

    no…..dog, cow, chicken, tuna, pig, cat, frog. It's all gross, you should be vegetarian. But if you eat one you may as well eat the other, I think it's our "western" perspective that's skewed, not the chinese, just on this one issue though.

  87. N says – reply to this

    This is a cultural issue. I am sure if us americans were raised eating dogs than it would not be a big deal but since we are not raised that way, it is not something that I would personally do. Just like in India, cows are worshipped and never eaten. Different cultures, different morals.

    WTF CHINESE PEOPLE DO NOT EAT DOGS, napal and mongalia do, thats not fricken china tho, so before you fucking say some shit, CHINESE PEOPLE DO NOT EAT DOGS I HAVE NEVER SEEN DOG ON A MENU BEFORE IN CHINA AND I USED TO LIVE THERE, WHAT KIND OF OTHER SHIT U GANNA MAKE U MAKE UP PEREZ? BEFORE U TALK OUT OF UR ASS AT LEAST GET UR INFORMATION RIGHT, BECUASE OF U I BET EVERYONE IS GOING TO THINK CHINESE EAT DOGS, IM SURE THE KOREANS DO BUT THAT ISNT CHINA IS IT? GET A GLOBE

  91. UMMMM says – reply to this


    91

    Let me think for a second….China poisons our kids with lead tainted toys, they will eat any animal they find and beat the ever loving shit out of the poor animal before they kill it to tenderize it, AIDS is rampant, they live in a permanent cloud of coal produced pollution and they make cheap copies of designer stuff and sell it as authentic. They have done their share of offending so taking dog off the menus is a courtesy and it makes them come off as having some kind of morals. IN A NUTSHELL, THEY SUCK MAJOR BALLS. Nuff said.

  92. jujub says – reply to this


    92

    i thin it's funny that onyl certain animals are now considered »socially acceptable» to eat. meat is meat people. those dogs are raised for slaughter, like cows, chickens, sheep, etc in the west. so either become vegetarian cuz otherwise you're being prejudicial as to which animals are worthy to be killed, or else don't knock it til you tried it.

  93. Varni says – reply to this


    93

    Just so everyone is aware, they raise dogs as food just like we do chicken and cow and pig. The dog is a particular breed and not just any random dog. They have dogs at pets without fear of thier neighbors stealing them for dinner. P.S. it is a bit chewy, but actually quite tasty!!!

  94. Gz0n3 says – reply to this


    94

    I love all these arguments, "Dogs are more personable" they wag there tail when you're around!" So what? Its left over pack mentality that is in there brain nothing more.

    I saw a video…I think it was the Philippines….where they had a cage full of barking dogs that were going to be killed. Outside of the cage several more dogs were hanging on poles after being freshly skinned. It was horrible but I guess to them meat is meat and you don't get too fussy as to what it is but only that it is available and will feed your family. I think of how dogs love us and that is the difference.

  97. smitt says – reply to this


    97

    by the way, a dog is not more personable than a cow, and pigs are smarter than dogs or cows or chicken, but we eat them. I've had all sorts of pets and I've spen a lot of time on farms. All animals have personalities and feelings and you're are wrong. Cows, horses, pigs, dogs, chickens, parrots do love people, it's just that you don't love them….that why they don't give a crap when they see you.

    If you wouldn't eat a dog than you shouldn't eat a cow.

    99

    hmmm…is eating cows and chickens any different than eating dog? what a dumb questions. Of course it is different! Cows and chickens are live stock raised to be eaten, and used for other things like eggs, milk, etc…. Dogs are not raised to be used in any sort of food capacity. Again…perez needs to do his research before he opens his mouth.
