Dog and cat meat market in Guangzhou

but I've never heard of such markets or eaten any of it. I've been living here in this city for many years though.

  • It's tough for us Westerners cuz dogs/cats are domesticated and not seen as livestock...In India hardly anyone eats beef cuz cows are sacred there...Imagine how they feel watching a slaughterhouse video???

    • @xyzzjp I'm from where the vidoes states and yes dogs are on the menu as a delicacy. From what I can remember as a child we had like 3 dogs, and each on of them ended up on the dinner table. I remember having some but the meat was strong so I never wanted to try it anymore...so yeah, to us it's just like pork and beef. Some of you may have tried the korean pork bone soup, you should try dog bone soup...

    • @toastt21a Exactly. How ignorant we are eating pork, where pigs are much the same as dogs and cats.

    • @toastt21a I once watched a slaughterhouse video and it was the most horrifying thing I had ever seen. I almost cried. I am vegetarian by birth and everybody in my family are. And most of the people here are vegetarians. I cant understand one thing - you guys show sympathy and compassion for cats and dogs and why you dont feel anything while eating your beef? Cow is still an animal and it has feelings just like cats and dogs right?. Sorry I dont mean to offend anyone. But thats what I always won More..

  • eating a predator is disguting and very dangerous.
    predators often prey on the sick. so in short, if you
    eat a cat, you may have just comsumed an animal that just consumed a rat that
    had rabies :)

    think about it

    • @mongoose as far as I know they breed them specifically for consumption, or that's the idea anyway

      given Chinese standards, one can only imagine

      What do you think of eating pig? They are pretty disgusting.....

    • @SpaceCase ok you think they are feeding them top of the line cat food like Iams and Science Diet. I think not. They are most likely being fed the rotten left over bits of other cats nd dogs. The stuff that even a Chinese person wouldn't eat. And fuck we all know the Chinese will eat pretty much anything.

      well there's a huge diff between a hog and a lion for instance.

      i will repeat. eating a predator is extremely dangerous. it more than likely had a sick or diseased animal for it's last meal.

      as far as hogs. i love bacon :)

      Let's just say we all agree with you. How are they stunned before slaughter? answer is they Are not. They are often skinned alive screaming in agony. At least we try here to stun them so they know little of what happens killing them quickly as poss. Now we have these vile Islamic 'halal' slaughter houses everywhere that say a shitty prayer right before they slit its throat. Which I might ad, is illegal under English law yet is allowed and ignored.

  • I don't know how many dogs and cats we euthanize in this country every day but I bet it's a shitload. At least these people put the meat to use. We just kill them and throw them away. If we had any sense, we'd ship ours over to them alive and cut the bill we owe them.

    Calfs are very cute and pigs more clever than dogs...

  • I dont see any worse treatment here than in alot of other parts in the world. I think it just seems weird to us westeners because thats not what we are used to eating and we usually have a social relationship with cats and dogs. I think similar relationships can be had with most animals, though, yet we eat them. If you think eating cats and dogs is sick that might be something worth thinking about.

      I dont think they torture them, I think they mistreat them. That is something that is not unique to chinese. Look at some of the videos from pig farms in the US.

  • I don't buy the argument where an animal is an animal whether cow,pig,goat,camel and etc. A domesticated animal where the animal feels part of the family should not be eaten period. We humans, should have very similar values and cultures, we're not fcvinkng aliens or live 10,000 years ago. We shoud have the guts to say this is wrong and this is right, now if you tell me animals should not be eaten at all, then that's a different topic.

    And people who think eating dog and cat is barbaric, but eat cow or pork themselves, are fucking hypocrits!!!!

  • People eat what they can get ahold of. If they can get ahold of alot they then get chosey about what they eat.

    Dogs and cats are easy to raise and are just as edible as a cow or duck or chicken. Mind you id never eat em just as I will never eat horse or octopus.

  • Can't watch the video just in case, I hate cats yet would NOT let this happen in my country, I love dogs and own one and would kill like she was my little girl if harmed.

    Fuck you Chinese cunts, everything you touch is either stolen, destroyed or eaten...I HATE YOU!

  • As a cat owner I would not eat it but I don't find it disturbing.,The way those animals are kept in small cages and all the stress they have that is really really nasty.(there is a netherlandish proverb for that and its "Bij de beesten af")
    I eat cow fish and chicken meat but also those animals I don't like to see before it's anonymous.
    We have chickens here and their eggs are really good,but I would never eat my own chicken... its like eating a friend.
    And that's what makes eating cat More..

    it as disturbing as when they kill birds
    like chickens or ducks. If it's out
    there in the chain food, it's fair
    game. But kill it fast and humanely
    with the intent to eat it...

  • Killing animals for meat isn't open for debate on a case by case basis. As long as the animal isn't endangered and doesn't needlessly suffer it is fair game. There is no difference from breeding dogs for slaughter than it is to breed cows, failure to accept this premise instantly brands you a hypocrite. The above of course only refers to carnivores, if you are a vegetarian then clearly you see ridiculousness of crying over one animal dying but not another.

    • @Herbwise Yeah, same as the mentality that shops for Dolphin friendly Tuna ( a fish that is as large and as beautiful as any Dolphin ). Or running down to a beach to help a beached whale after an afternoon shooting pheasant/rabbits et al.

  • I try not to lecture people, nor change the way they eat. However as a vegetarian, the revulsion most of you feel about people eating dogs and cats, is the same as what I feel about people eating any animal. There just isn't much difference between one animal and another.

    • @Norwood exactly. But most people don't get that. We have a split/double standard relation to animals: we pet some, we eat others. If you'd pet a pig and eat the dog, people call you crazy and disgusting. While it would be just the same double standard, just the other way around.
