Seriously, if you ever contemplate eating dog or think it is acceptable, look at the sad pictures on this site
Its ironic though because people value dogs for their intelligence when in some studies it has been shown that pigs are actually more intelligent. Nobody ever cries for the pigs :mad:

Yeah because eating dogs and cats is going to rid us of animal overpopulation...


I hope this thread was posted as a joke.

since im been requested in the past to quote my sources...you should also do so since it's word for word.

then ppl (like me) can't assume that it's your own comments.


as you can see, im not the only one that's riding your a$$

This has to be the most moronic thread I have read in a long time. How do you determine, first that there is an overpopulation of dogs (or cats for that matter). And second, even if so, how does eating the animal figure into a solution..

Its absolutely not viable since it goes against most Canadian's cultural and moral ethics (just as it would if you told the Hindus to solve their stray cow problems by increasing their consumption of beef - in fact here you can throw the big religion curveball as well).

Seriously, what was the point of your pondering again?

I agree.

I think there is an overpopulation of morons, but human ethics and society does not condone 'Moroncide'.

Go to your local SPCA or animal shelter and see for yourself.

I think there should be federally inspected facilities for dog slaughtering. That is the only thing stopping it from happening in canada. You can slaughter and eat dog for your own consumption, but cant sell it because it isn't fedrally inspected.

its all about the mind set. Its ok to eat rabbit or duck, but because more of the population has a dog or cat as a pet, its not ok? If we as a society didn't "find" human emotion in dogs or cats and treat them as such, then we just be snacking on Odie or Garfield today.

Absolutely not! Eating cats or dogs is reprehensible.

See you proved my point exactly. Why is it OK to eat a pig and not a dog? (assuming both are butchered the same way)

Many years ago, my dad, and another Mountie had to go with food inspectors to this chinese restaurant in Mtl. They saw cat and dog carcasses hanging in the meat freezer. Needless to say, my dad hasnt had any chinese, or anytype of asian food since that day. He won't even let us order in, if he is there. He gets violently ill just smelling it.
