Canine slaughterhouse discovered in Skun sparks fresh call for dog meat ban

Animal welfare   groups are calling for the government to ban the trade of dog meat throughout the country following the discovery of a dog slaughter house in Kampong Cham province, described as the worst they have seen in Southeast Asia. Four Paws International together with Animal Rescue in Cambodia posted an open letter online in December last year calling for the government to put an end to dog meat trade for human consumption. They have gathered one million signatures worldwide since then.

 

The letter says: “The evidence we gathered documented the immense animal cruelty inherent in the trade, unsanitary slaughter methods and the serious risk the trade poses to public health, largely due to rabies. The publication of our findings has resulted in national and international calls for action to be taken to protect dogs as faithful companions and defenders of public health and national security, not food.”

 

In a video posted by Four Paws on their Facebook page, a caged dog is shown being delivered to a slaughter house in Skun town, Cheung Prey district wwand later on brought to a dark room. The camera was unable to capture what happened, but the dog’s whine suggests it was slaughtered.

I am not advocating killing of dogs but I find the logic funny.

 

Killing dogs and cats is cruel.....but

Killing pigs, cows, goats is not cruel?

 

They are all mammals and feel the same amount of pain when killed.

 

Every morning I see trucks of pigs being send to the slaughter house and nobody complained of this? There are videos of pigs slaughtering on Youtube and it was horrific.

Yes really. Perhaps time to see the Soi dogs with different eyes.

I think the logic goes that dogs and cats are pets, so should not be eaten whereas pigs, cows and sheep are farm animals and are ok to eat. The logic does get a bit weird when you talk about horses and rabbits though. As a kid in the 50s I remember rabbit being served often as it was much cheaper than chicken - which was regarded as posh. Now (certainly in the UK), it is only really specialist butchers which supply rabbit and it is not often on display and way more expensive than chicken. Horse meat was very common in WW2 and regarded highly but is only available now when the quick meal suppliers try to save a few bob and put it in the beef lasagne...  All very strange.

Your logic is flawed. Any animal can be made into pets. There are people with pig, horse and rabbit as pets too.

And dogs and cats eat how many cows/pigs/sheep/chicken over a lifetime when kept as pets? Not to mention the smaller animals they kill themselves.

 

Or the carbon footprint of pets, which are, by definition, unnecessary, and cause various forms of nuisance to other people...

I have eaten a horsemeat burger in a well known restaurant in Paris. Better than beef. Also horsemeat salami in Italy. One of the tastiest meats I've had was donkey in Hong Kong. Ate dog when invited to dinner in Prey Veng. Edible but I didn't ask for seconds.

I dont eat animals that eat meat. Too many diseases.

Don't eat pork then. Often fed on slops from restaurants containing meat. Was the cause of the last big foot and mouth outbreak in the UK.

I dont, for the reason I said and that you confirmed.

 

I actually meant red meat. Fish is ok but im not overly keen on that either.

Rabbits are vegetarian and making a big comeback after spending many years in the wilderness due to Myxomatosis in the 1950s. Squirrel, another vegetarian, is also popular in Michelin starred restaurants in London.

Totally agree with you, each has his own culture.
But I will not eat, neither dog, nor cat, nor rat.

Wasn't it originally something to do with westerners not eating those animals which are carnivores??? Of course Pigs eat everything...... 

A fillet of horse steak is a prized delicacy in Brazil or several other countries.

A baby lamb looks much cuter than the average rottweiler..

I have heard over past years that LIVE MONKEYS were served in Hong Kong, and probably Chinese, Restaurants.

Stories were that tables had a cut out spot in the middle and a monkey was brought alive, and while eating appetizers and chatting they would tease and antagonize the monkey to get it's blood boiling and then zip the top of it's skull off and everyone around would eat the 'raw' brains.  I know it sounds 'gross' to us but not much different than eating dogs.

Animal cruelty .

I witness that often in Asia .

Mahatma Gandhi said that the state a human society is in is clearly shown by the way they treat their animals .

Shame on them , a bunch of arrogant and ignorant low-lives .

Churchill famously kept a pig as a pet, reasoning that "dogs look up to you, cats look down on you, but a pig treats you as an equal".

It didn't help that when I watched the clip, it was followed immediately by an advert for 'the barbecue store'.

This is in Cambodia. How did it make ThaiVisa News? As if anyone has never unknowingly eaten dog before....please.

 

Although. It would be an excellent idea to feed the poor people of Thailand, and solve the problem of Soi Dog over population in many of our lower and upper provinces.

 

I see the advocates of 4paws incite Rabies.

 

Ironic how many Citizens and Residents have been infected by rabies via dog bites/attacks, hospitalized, and yet they're friends and family continue to be inhumane by feeding them human wastefood and scraps.

 

Thereby helping to spread more disease and suffering to other humans via contagious and infected dogs.

 

Do we not have an education in place from the DDC to inform the indigenous population as to the commonwealth of controlling animal and rodent populations and thus controlling the spread of multiple disease?

 

Government sponsored Dog Slaughter houses for BBQ dog markets and street side food vendors.  A win/win situation. 

 

YES, may I Have a BBQ dog burger with chips and tea please? No, Khau Tum Maa only? Oh, thats fine. 

 

For the neurotic dog lovers out there, I do believe in having pets, I do believe in responsible dog ownership including spade/neutered , as well as inoculations and training. I do believe in leashes and obeying local laws for pet ownership as well.
