American Restaurant Granted Permission To Sell Dog Meat

A Los Angeles restaurant has been granted permission to consume and sell dog meat. A Filipino group successfully argued that the banning of the consumption of dog meat violated their religious rights.

Puchow de Manila Eatery and Fine Dining has been granted provisional permission to sell and consume dog meat, while the Supreme Court decides if their case has merit. The restaurant is allowed to slaughter up to 3 dogs per day, with the stipulation that they must be put down humanely. The World Animal Protection agency called the decision “shocking,” and vowed to fight tooth and nail to ensure this act is not allowed to continue.

In the Philippines today, there is an abundance of dog meat sold in restaurants and markets. The meat is as sold for as little as $1.30/kg. The trading and selling of dog-meat brings in nearly 3.8 million U.S. dollars per year, and nearly 500,000 dogs are killed for meat every year.

Eleven regions around the globe still consume dog meat. Those being: China, Indonesia, Korea, Mexico, Philippines, Polynesia, Taiwan, Vietnam, the Arctic, Antarctic, and Switzerland.

Puchow de Manila Eatery and Fine Dining says the dishes will range from American styled cuisine such as Chihuahua Chops to Korean-inspired dishes such as Boshintang (dog soup).

    Screw the anthropomorphic taboo’s, Meat is meat! When the Apocalypse comes I will have no qualms eating my neighbors pets….

    I wouldn’t eat dog meat anyway’s.I actually like more white meat then red meat such as chicken as well as seafoods, along with vegetarianism. However I like my trail mix, hummus, raisons, Keifer, yogurt, etc. Fish and seafood is my most favorite.

    Aa long as they left other people pet dog’s or cat’s alone and respected the owners of people’s pets. This is the United States not China. It is true that 44 states allow dog meat for personal consumption. I have two small lap dogs a Maltese and a Bichon that are actually too small of breed to be eaten anyway. I live in Virginia where it it’s illegal to eat dog meat because it is one of the six states that outlaws personal consumption of dog meat. The Chinese need to respect owner perspective because it’s the laws in America. Anerican Indian Reservations might had eaten dog meat for personal consumption because they’re exempt. The Chinese need to to realize that killing dog for meat consumption might be have stricter regulations in the United States of Americans just like weed or pot will eventually be used as medicinal purposes.

    What they want to eat in other countries is there business, but I don’t agree that it should be done here. Dogs are family members and protection to a great many Americans, not to mention police officers. I agree with Neece Soldani if we cave on this will cannibalism be next.

    If you need to consult a bible to know that eating a family pet is wrong, that was stolen and bled out , by feet chopped, watching by the other dogs, and TORTURED, boiled alive, trying to climb out of the pot ( chinese medicine believe that adrenaline has health benefits) .. and people are having a discussion about it, then this is one fucked up human race. Clean and unclean meat. How about .. does it have a name? Its is trained to poo outside? is it someones best fried? Or didnt you know that about the torture?. Regardless vegan use this topic to try to push their must less attainable agenda, rather than going to farms and freeing some cows, they disrupt a valid obvous cause, to protect companion animals from a market that rewards theft , torture, of familty pets ( especially at Christmas time) Vietmanese has a nice christmas while other familty whos does didnt return, dont even open the presents, just cry. Unless they dont know.. But father knows. And a grown man cries , when? his dog dies. This makes me beleive that what one chooses to eat is not saying much for the character. Vegans seems to be uptight ,extremist, and now,some here are unable to support an anti dogmeat cause because “its not fair”.. life is fair. Many dogs are charming. some are not they die in the shelter , They were abandoned. some People are charming, and some , are NOT.. they are total assholes. And they speak on the internet. some dogs that have received years of training , commonly perform acts of heroism. Dog activist work aroudn the clock saving lost cats and dogs. Lost pig poster? never seen one.. Just assholes, people who say dog torture is fair play and we should not stop it or we are therefore labeled hypocrites… hypocrasy is not a crime. Blowtorching puppy on a stick for kids ( happens even god forsaken day, so put down those holy books, i have seen things that have taken me so far away from god, ) Google dog heath food chinese belief torture.. look at some photos. so dogs die too,..untill every cow is adopted into a nice home.? Dogs fight for us in wars, they clear mine fields, they went to space to make sure its safe, im not going to make a list of300 reasons why our companion animals should not be blow tortorched, Talking to a brick wall. people who take ideals too far like this are just plain assholes…dont argue cos i wont respond .. and stay away from your neighbors dog… dont kill it, dont torture it and dont eat it. Im on a hunger strick. i am going hungry. The “conversation” about this makes me nauseaus , humans betray the untilmate loyal companion, Certain human must be the #1 treacherous species. .. tldr no i wont fix spelling good lord

    hmm.. haven’t eaten dog for the whole 30 years of my life, and i don’t plan on doing it now. I still can’t get past seeing horse meat in my local grocery store..

  • Dennis Hoy

    The Philippines population comprises almost exclusively of Christians and Muslims who don’t eat dog for religious reasons. More likely pandering to the demands of businesses. Do your homework you stupid yanks.

    people how make that little commen think they are clever? happens every time. with that logic, you would eat your mom or be a vegan. Humans are animals too. Here is why you are evil in my moral evaluation: 1. Dogs are believed to taste better and contain adrenalin if tortured before death. the more the better. break some legs, the night before, watch the others die for a while , skin alive and most commonly , boiled alive. ( go ahead, say we do that to lobsters).. look asparagus and insects too, kill yourself with that logic. 2. Dogs have earned a position in our society , we do not kill our comrades best friend and family members, that is the greatest evil to betray those that trust us . 3. People in jail regard animal abusers as worse than pedophiles but Chris Bolton and 1468 people apartently don’t. 4. in southeast asia , where i am trapped caring for my two dogs i rescued from human assassination attempts, at christmas , dogs are stolen.. Why farm dogs when its so easy to steal the trusting animal. 5. We bury our dead ,and we bury our pets. Eating them would be a step back toward neanderthal. 30000 years we have worked with dogs and treated them as our family , worth more alive than as food .6. As long as dog meat is legal, the practice of torturing , likethe shark fin and other myths will persist. 7. I think all 1468 who want to eat dogs because we eat pigs, should uncheck you make me SICK. 8. If you want pigs and all meat to be illegal don’t get this mixed up. this is going to the supreme court. 9. Noone pets are safe while dog eaters are around. the price of dog meat is very high now. Its a quick way to make money, and break hearts and families. 10. the dog meat trade and dog murdre has caused me more trauma than any, as dogs have saved my iife, and i have saved dogs, and i have saved asians drowning , than they want to come to america and eat our dogs and cats now. NO.

    A dog is a domesticated companion animal and a pet. Many have had “theraphy dogs” or pets for children, police dogs, guide dogs, etc., which shows that they are fairly intelligent, also are capable of a measure of love, loyalty, trust and affection. Animals still don’t have the same value as humans, true, but I could not imagine having my dogs for dinner, that goes against how I naturally feel about them.

  • Jerry

    Americans,( I’m one) are the Kings of hipocracy. As sick as it seems’s, its legal in 44 States to eat dogs. America scolds the rest of the world about all sorts of behavior that we create loopholes around to make us appear holier than thou. Then We pretend no one else notices.
