    Default China bans dog from Olympic menu

    BBC NEWS | Asia-Pacific | China bans dog from Olympic menu





    Dog meat is eaten by some in several Asian countries


    China has ordered dog meat to be taken off the menu at its 112 official Olympic restaurants in order to avoid offending foreign visitors.
    Restaurant workers are advised to "patiently" suggest other options to diners who order dog.
    Any restaurant found violating the ban would be black-listed, the state-run Xinhua news agency reported. Dog - known as "fragrant meat" - is eaten by some Chinese for purported medicinal properties. The ban, issued by the Beijing Catering Trade Association, forbids all designated Olympic restaurants from offering dog and urges other food outlets to remove the meat from menus.

    So long as it tastes OK and you are a meat eater anyway then I don't see the difference between eating a cute dog and a cute lamb.

    Just because you're offended doesn't mean you're right.

    I remember this funny saying: "In China, they eat everything with four legs, except a table".

    If it is 'their' custom to eat it, why stop now?

    Ugh, don't they domesticate dogs over there? If they do I don't understand how they can get over the "don't eat your cute pet" thing.

    I can't imagine dog being tasty. They run around all the time, their meat has to be tough. I don't like lamb, either. Or rabbit. Or dark chicken meat, for that matter. I unknowingly had horsemeat once in Italy and I had to spit that shit out it was so gross.

    man I could never eat a dog.

    My cousin brought over his Korean wife who remarked my Moms dashounds didn't have much meat on them... she was never invited back.

    Don't eat lambs either.

    Damn you just don't eat the family fluffy... it's just wrong. Like hugging your friend goodbye and then biting a chunk out of their arm.

    funny how life is... everyone is posting these cute pictures of their pets and we're like awww but it doesn't bother people when you find out Fluffy is butchered and eaten in other countries.

    just an observation
