Meat Ban.  Wasn't he head of the UN in the 90's?

If I recall he was delicious.

No, it just means they will have to use farmed dog meat.

Do you mean "farm" farmed, or farm "farmed"?

if you're dumber than me, and slower than me, pass the salt.

I doubt this will stop the import of dogs at all.  It was already "illegal" without paperwork, and that didn't seem to stop it.  The Vietnamese tend towards any meat that is readily available, and dog is a big industry.

Wait until you see our dog-sheeps. They're trained from lambhood specifically to go and run along a field to exercise a multitude of dogs behind them and fool the canines into thinking that they're herding.

I can't imagine eating any human companion animal (dogs, cats, horses) outside of a survival situation, and even then I am not sure I could actually kill any of them just for food, rather than having to put them out of their misery and taking advantage of the spare calories to survive.

I suppose this is a very modern western viewpoint though given the consumption of dog in parts of Asian and Horses in Europe.

It's nice in a mustard and shallot sauce.

While I wouldn't eat my own or somebody else's pet rabbit, rabbits aren't really companion animals in the way Dogs, Horses, and Cats are to humans.

So yeah.

Cats aren't companion animals.  They're delusional stalkers suffering from debilitating chronic dishonesty.

A horse is a companion animal? Hardly. Utility, sure. Leisure, okay. Companion? Nah. Not more so than rabbits are.

Yeah, because in Europe we're not really western at all. Look at us, barbarians, eating horses 'n shiat.

Well, that depends on what type of companionship you are talking about.  These people took that definition a little too far...

No, I wouldn't recommend it.

I'm surprised at the allegation that these are stolen pets.

I heard that at least in China, they breed and farm "meat dogs".  They're a different breed and not socialized as pets, and somewhat similar to any other livestock business.  They are not raised as pets, but they have more *potential* to be companion animals than, say, a cow.  Some traditional livestock like goats can be pretty darn smart and socialize well as pets, though.

The "meat dog" thing seems more cost-effective than stealing and transporting pets.  I don't wanna underestimate the depths of human depravity, but the risks of stealing dogs and transporting them hundreds of miles sounds like a net loss to me.  Even sociable pets would tear into each other if packed inside a closed truck together.  They'd need individual cages, which makes it less cost-effective for long distances.

Well you'd probably slaughter them near where they're stolen and transport the meat that way.  I'd think.

As long as they are bread for consumption purposes, I can't see people from  objecting.

Unless we want to hear from India regarding our cruel treatment of cows.
