Before eating the dog: Cutting up the carcass to eviscerate.

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.

You have to realize that this the end for these dogs. Their lives have been a complete torturous journey to this point. Forced to live in squalor and to give birth next to rotting dead dogs in the same cage. Rabies and other diseases are rampant. Stuffed into crates stacked on top of one another then shoved onto a truck, dogs in the middle suffocate on the trip to the slaughterhouse, others die during the careless unloading process. Unfortunately the dogs that die during transport are the lucky ones. For the dogs that live through the journey it only gets worse. These dogs are tortured before their death thinking that the extra adrenaline created through the torture makes the meat taste sweeter. This is NOT some cultural eating of dogs with humane treatment and slaughter. IT IS A HOLOCAUST FOR DOGS! Look up the illegal dog meat trade before you comment on this site!

Are you vegetarian, Lesly? Maybe you should start your war at home, as I am sure many people in your country eat the flesh of dead animals (it's called meat). And meat eaters are animal killers. unless you consider that horses, pigs and cows are not animals?
You guys are sick I'm going to be the president and stop and start war with animal killers I will only let food like horse pig cow and chicken but not cats or dogs fuck Asians and people that eat that food war begins now!!
too nice for the barkers across from my house. Wish we could eat the owners who are really the ones not the dogs.
Man I wonder what it taste like with some stuffing or rice stuffed into it.Might be a new meaning for thanksgiving feasts and dinners.A pleasant surprise for the guests indeed!
