Vang vang, Vietnam be velly unhoppy wis no thit cho (dog meat).<quoted text>
Doggone! That also means less dogs to hunt. My Vietnamese friends aren't going to be happy about this!!
In Vietnam, dog meat is just another protein. Its also considered a source of male virility. Like many parts of Asia, dogs and cats are eaten, out of privation or necessity. And most importantly of all, dog meat is not ubiquitous on the Vietnamese dinner table. Vietnamese do keep animals as beloved pets.
In South Korea, dogs are bred (similar to cattle) for consumption. The choice parts, like the loin steaks, cost more, as you might expect.
