from: http://www.snopes.com/inboxer/petition/bernard.htmCertainly most of us prefer that any animals used for food be raised and killed humanely, but we don't have to look to China to find exceptions to this standard -- there are plenty of cows, chickens, pigs, and other food animals being raised and slaughtered in appalling fashion right here in our own backyard. But of course, since we keep dogs as pets, we arrogantly assume we have the moral right to tell the rest of the world what they can do with their dogs. Why worry about the suffering of millions of our own livestock and poultry animals if we can beat up on somebody else for daring to eat dogs? As usual, the issue isn't really about the right of all animals to be treated humanely; it's only about the right of a small subset of cute and endearing animals to be treated humanely.
by mushroom: I think it is worse than eating a cow...dogs are about the only animal that really loves humans. It is more of a betrayal.[/B]
