Blog: Calls for clemency on Korean cats and dogs
Catherine Sleep | 8 September 2004
For the first time, the US animal protection group IDA has placed a Korean-language advertisement urging readers to campaign against the practice of torturing and then killing cats and dogs for food in Korea.
Apparently it is believed that the adrenaline rush dogs get if they are beaten shortly before they are killed will enhance the meat, while cats are boiled alive so that their juices can be extracted for health tonics.
That’s horrendous, no doubt about it. But we westerners are mostly squeamish about eating animals we consider as household pets at the best of times. I remember when I was in Vietnam I was slightly concerned that I might end up eating thit cho (dog meat) instead of beef/ chicken, until I learned that it’s a delicacy and extremely expensive. Nobody is going to slip it into your noodles without making sure you appreciate it – and will pay for it.
