Why is dog meat eating immoral?

An immoral question, yes pets eat, but what about DOG?

  • If survival depends on it, I also eat dog or cat.
    Because I don't see any fundamental difference to a pig.
    To the pre-poster with Thailand experience:
    Most Thais do not eat dogs, the dogs then mostly go to Vietnam.
    (BTW .: I have my second mainstay in Isaan and fried grasshoppers are delicious ..)
    I once worked with a foreman from Thuringia who sometime after
    3. Beer said that dogs are also slaughtered in your village. (That was in 2009)

  • Hello. A direct answer to the new posts. A dog is not a vegetarian and should not be made into a love of animals or a misunderstood love of animals back and forth.

    On the subject of dog slaughter it is at least officially banned in Germany, unofficially, well, I've been asked before and I know that some areas are not exactly white spots on the map.

    In an emergency when you are hungry and in need, you will certainly think differently than in the now, when the full belly is actually always secured, but slaughtering a dog is emotionally difficult for many, but technically not much different for experienced butchers than sheep or rabbits.

    This is nothing new either

  • As with many extreme foods (see Bear Grylls or jungle camp .. laughs), the question of morality is not the question of whether you are able to
    would keep that particular food with you. You will have waited a while and your stomach will no longer be used to food at all. The dog or the maggots will presumably cause the "Sunday roast" that has just been eaten to come back into daylight very quickly. At least that is a normal human reaction, and it has nothing to do with harshness, because disgust leads to vomiting.
    With permanent malnutrition and especially no nutrition at all, the feelings of hunger are completely gone after about three days, that makes it so dangerous. Since you can get along without food for a relatively long time, the dog is relatively safe with me personally, my comrades (incidentally, they are more meat-biologically similar to the roast pork than a dog) have nothing to fear. Survival yes ... but there are limits. At some point it's over anyway and the dog won't save you in the long run. What's next? The mother in law ?
    Anyway, the time will come "to go under brightly" and that with the last remaining dignity.

  • That vomiting is a good indication.
    Therefore: prepare the whole roast and only "enjoy" it in small bites over a longer period of time.
    And don't gulp it down completely in ravenous hunger and possibly spit it out whole, because a second attempt at eating will then be a lot harder ...

  • I think it would also be interesting if we could make an additional distinction on this topic between:
    "I would my Eat pet? "And" I would any Eat a pet? "

    Many say yes, understandably, that e.g. their dog has the status of a family member, but how about a strange dog? Is the possible meat requirement limited to just one or two favorite animals, even in times of need, or does one become more pragmatic and expand one's "prey spectrum" to include species that in our culture are usually only considered as pets?
    In the specific case, for example, wild dogs, stray cats or something.

    Yes, between theory and practice, the differences are huge. Already during a military exercise with raw food in the form of a freshly shot hare, I experienced how few people are able to take the hare out of the romper and gouge it and then eat it with an appetite.
    Even budding young hunters often fail because of the "red work" namely gutting the game and giving up training as a hunter. Not everyone is a professional butcher.
    If the animals now also become a-typical for consumption, the inhibition clamp gets bigger and bigger.
    But from your desk and on a full stomach, "none of this is a problem".
    If you then show someone how to curl game, i.e. over the Waidloch, i.e. the anus, with which hunting-nicker penetrates it is suddenly over, at least for many.
    So to the "mega garden in the garden" ... don't underestimate all of that.
    And ..important .. being a city dweller, being sensitive and possibly not being able to do that as a matter of course, is not a flaw, as it is the product of upbringing and growing up.
    Whoever has the warm blood running over their hands knows more afterwards.

  • Hello. Who cares, but I don't want to impose myself, I like to show you how different animals e.g. poultry, rabbit, sheep, goats etc. are transformed from living animals to food. I prefer to come to you in the vicinity of about 100-120 km around Münster / Steinfurt in small groups with about 1-3 active people and maybe also spectators. Greetings Windfried private butcher

    You have to eat what is there. Better a badger than nothing at all. I would keep my hands off dogs for now, because I don't have a firearm and I don't want to go close to a starved dog at sword distance if I can avoid it.

    I would keep my hands off my own animals for as long as possible in order not to unnecessarily depress morale in the family.

  • Eating dog meat would cost me less effort than eating grasshoppers, I couldn't kill a dog, but I would gut and cook it up.

    But that does not apply to my or my cousin's (whom I herd regularly) with these dogs.
    To the statement "the dogs would certainly not hesitate" if I drop dead now they might eat me, but as long as I'm still alive they would stand by me just like every human family member, and I by them. On the other hand, if one of the dogs would now have a fatal accident, that is, dog dead but meat still edible, I would eat it too - dead is dead.

  • For me that would be a pretty straightforward thing.
    In an extreme situation in which less I hunger than my child, I would of course process our pets into food. I'm also very pragmatic about that; Consideration: which animal has the least benefit? Kanin, Dachhase & Co would have bad cards. Hen laid out ---> soup pot.
    If the dog helps me in the said extreme situation, i.e. if it is able to hunt and / or keep watch and fight, it has nothing to fear. A useless eater that may concern my toddler when he is hungry himself would be out of the question. As I said, that sounds harsh now, but in such a situation it is very clear to me: Human is human and animal is animal, end of the announcement.

    I think it's very bad the people who transfigure their dogs / cats / grotto olms etc into "best friends" and humanize them ...: Bad:

    Hello alina,

    Locusts are delicious. They taste like shrimp. You pellet them just like these roasted or cooked from the chitin shell. I've eaten the critters several times, I like them. Dog? Brrrr !!!!

    But there we see again that likes and dislikes in relation to generally acceptable foods are acquired, i.e. culturally and not genetically determined.

    Best regards

  • Waldschrat
    have you tried dog before?
    I don't think the taste is the point.
    I can imagine the locusts taste good, but trying them is another question ...

    With the other, I fully agree with you. What the farmer does not know he does not eat ...

    Hello alina,

    No.

    All my culturally learned hair would stand on end, but as I said, my aversion is learned, due to my growing up in a family where dogs were housemates and watchdogs.

    As I said. I've eaten grasshoppers several times. Similar to shrimp or prawns. If I put the meat peeled out of the shell in front of you, you would probably hardly be able to distinguish it, locusts a little more nutty.

    Best regards

  • Waldschrat
    I thought so
    I just wanted to emphasize that the taste is not an argument

    but good if you presented the peeled meat to me and there was nothing more to see of the grasshopper, and it looks appetizing, I would try it without need.
    It's all a matter of habit.

  • Well, with pets I would generally have no problem with the food.
    Dog, cat, rabbit, rat I wouldn't care.

    Would also try dog ​​on vacation if it arises.

    I grew up with rabbits, roe deer, chickens and turkeys, so it was clear to me at a young age that there are animals that are eaten for lunch.

    Nevertheless, I would not kill an animal without need, for fun or to pass the time, I find THAT reprehensible.

    However, I wouldn't eat my cat, I couldn't ........ I say from the current point of view: innocent:

    p.s .: My father once told me that after the war you were happy when you saw a badger rabbit or a dog ...... but not to be petted.

    I think it's very bad the people who have their dogs / cats / ...................: Bad:

    Hello daywalkers

    Then I am in your eyes a bad ....., because our cat is a family member!

    Anyone who eats family members is okay too, it's only meat! : amazed:

    But I respect your opinion, so it's good if you admit your own opinion to others.
