Yes, dead is dead, but make it swift. No animal deserves to be tortured or abused.
I agree. It's one thing to eat a specific animal, but look at the condition of the cages on that truck. Most at the bottom probably die during transport.

Lots of people don't value dogs well here in the States either. I witness this every time I go visit my parents farm, which is in the sticks. People drop off dogs they no longer want out in the country and leave them to fin for themselves. They are starved to death and look so frightened. Makes me sick and hurt to see them. People in the country get desensitized to seeing these poor dogs. They mostly have dogs to protect their farms, so they are mostly viewed as workers. Don't guess they can take in every dog that gets dropped off. There is a lady not far from my folks that does try to rescue many though. Poor pups.

I understand the cultures are different and they do consume dog meat, but at least they could provide some humane treatment for the dogs during transport.

as close as 20-30 years ago tens of millions of Chinese starved to death because of failed gov't. policies. When that many people are starving to death, they will eat anything. Hundreds of millions still today subsist on an income of around $200 a YEAR. An old friend told me when I was young - "if you're hungry enough, you'll eat ****." I think he's right

I could go on. They're all dead, right?
Are dogs truely a decent source of meat though? They seem a poor choice. Goats, lambs, cows, deer, chickens ducks etc seem to have a higher meat yield per weight.

In opening post ou see animals that will yield very little meat at all - seems as thoguh the level of cruelty metered to the animals doesn't quite deliver much meat. Cattle on the other hand seem to have a higher meat yield.

Also worth considering is that cattle have not been bred to seek affection, companionship and be gregarious - dogs on the other hand have been selectively bred over the millenia to actual be social creatures seeking out human companionship.

A little detail often overlooked by the 'but what about cattle' crowd.

In other words, caging dogs for consumption is actually especially cruel to the dogs in comparison to cattle.

Better watch out. If the Hindu population grows in the U.S. you'll be eating dog instead of cow. To each their own. I do agree, honor the animal you'll slaughter, don't torture it.

Different cultures vary in how they value specific animal's lives. I imagine some Indian forums go on and on about US farm and/or slaughterhouse conditions, calling us barbarians.

If there was ever a food crisis my dogs wouldnt be on the menu, they are more valuable to me alive, besides, I have neighbors that I keep fattened up.
