Dog meat sold on the market (Lang Sơn, Vietnam)

This photo is part of a series called Thịt chó: eating a (hot) dog. A lots of interesting comments and reactions have been posted on the various photo sites where this series has been published.­

WARNING: These images are graphic, not suitable for kids and people with a weak stomach!

Western culture considers that eating a dog is cruel, barbaric and disgusting (not illegal, though), but ironically we have no problem eating all other sorts of animals as long as they are not called pets.­

But for the vast majority of people on earth, cultural values are very different.­ Dog meat is considered a delicacy in some asian cultures, and indeed cooked dog meat is very tasty and protein rich.­ You should try it some day! (if you are not vegetarian)

"Food dogs" are not pets and they have no names.­ They are bred and raised in farms, just like pigs, cows, lambs, chickens and other farm animals.­ They are usually put down "humanely" just like any other farm animal, by slitting the throat and bleeding the animal until it passes out.­ However some disturbing cases of food dogs being tortured before being slaughtered have been documented.­

This series of photos shows the process involved in preparing a dog for dinner, from slautering to cutting-up, eviscerating, de-boning, cooking and of course eating! These photos were taken in Bac Ha, a small town in the Northern part of Vietnam, and in various markets of the region.­

In case you are wondering, I did not order the dog for dinner, I just stumbled on the scene in the street and documented it, since I had my camera.­

Eating Dog Meat
Lang Son, Vietnam

this I have to try, after all this is healthy food full of protein
i think you don't understand. those are just puppies on the market. they won't be killed. maybe in several years, once they become big and fat adult dogs, maybe some will be eaten, but no-one eats puppy dogs. also, posting photos of what happening in other parts of the world is ok, even if you don't like it. this is called journalism. if no one shows what happens, then no-one cares, right?
I've heard, but had not seen before! This savagery! Can not find an alternative? " God sees everything! "(((
I think what you are doing is absoluteyly OUTRAGEOUS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! you freakin chinese people need to find another food to eat other than dogs, this is freakin crazy!!!!!!!!! someone should report this to the freakin athorities. If ur gonna eat these dogs, its one thing, but posting how u kill them all over the internet is wrong and its gross. U people have no right to put those animals in cages and them kill them!!!!!! there just puppies, how could u do something like that. Its just the same as doing it to a bunch of babies or children. It gross and nasty and it should be stopped. I think u people are just gross and should not treat animals like this. Please think of what u r doing to these animals. please take into consideration what u do when u killl these animals. it is truely sad to c a dead dog just as it is a child, please for the sake of everyone, stop doing this
