China's dog meat festival raises hackles of fans and opponentsReuters said:For many residents of China's southern town of Yulin, the peak of summer is the perfect time to get together with family and friends - and consume copious amounts of dog meat.
Thousands of dogs are expected to end up on the chopping block during the city's annual dog meat festival, which has become increasingly controversial in China.
I eat cow, pig, chicken, fish and sometimes wild game but I can't imagine eating a dog, cat or horse. I guess meat is meat and something has to die in order to be able to consume it but I can't imagine eating a dog. To me they are really close to being people, more so than even a horse or cat, two animals I also love.
I hope the activists get this stopped but I wouldn't hold my breath.
Would you eat a dog? Thoughts?
