Before eating the dog: Cutting off the head.

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.

This is not mean, it is food. It is just like cows or pigs or chickens - we kill them and eat them in the United States! I was in Vietnam last summer, all summer and dog meat is common. But they do NOT eat their pets, just like we here do not eat our pets. They have dog farms, just like we have pig farms, turkey farms, cow farms etc. They are raised to be food. People do own dogs in Vietnam as pets & loyal friends, but they do not eat them. Dog meat is common there and if you grew up and ate certain foods normally, you would not think anything of it because it is a part of who you are, how your culture works and what you have been fed all your life. But they do not eat a LOT of dog - they much prefer chicken and beef - just like in the good ol' USA
are you talking about eating meat in general, or just eating dogs? http://loupiote-photography...
