I agree I could never eat dog meat, however you must remember that in other parts of the world dogs are not pets. They are no different to them then say a hog or a chicken. As I said before I agree somewhat but I do not think that it's right that people have others values thrust upon them by force

The dog fest was banned a while ago, this is old, but very good news. Slow but steady progress for animal rights.

Talk about human sensitivity gone wild. What connection an individual has with a animal shall not be imposed upon others.

If your actions or practices cause harm and suffering to others, animal or not, there will always be people there to protest it.

this sucks, i was looking forward to a warming hot pot for the winter...however, i believe chinese will start to consume vietnamese soon because viets are not really human beings, and also they are so small you can keep many of them together in a little cage. i also think they should be pressed into gook patties and sold in the frozen food section so i can easily heat them up and pack them in my kids' lunch

We would ALL eat dog if we were hungry enough. You can say you wouldn't with a full belly but that would change if you were starving.

Your progress is not the only "slow" part of animal rights.

Yep, no one can have a decent discussion with them here. This is what happens when a site allows trolls to infest the forums. Topix only cares about site traffic, that's why they don't require registration for commentary.
