What is Wrong with Eating Dogs?
August 2, 2007 21 Comments
On my way home from work today I tuned in to Michael Savage on KPRC to get my daily dose of angry white male, my goodness is that man angry. I’m sure he has his reasons, no? Like his counterparts on the other side of the spectrum have theirs. Is there a left Michael Savage?
Anyway, Savage was rambling about people in China and Korea who eat dogs. He described these cultures as ‘barbaric’ based on the fact that they eat dog. I know Dr. Savage has a dog who he loves very much, in fact he talks about the creature almost every day, so it did not surprise me to hear him so agitated. I’d understand his ire if the man was a vegan but he’s not.
He is aware of how much beef we consume here in the United States, isn’t he? What about pork? Chicken?
Why is eating dog barbaric but eating beef isn’t?
If anyone has a good reason outside of emotional attachment to your pet, please share it.
