They have a saying in China that the people in Guangdong province (Canton) eat everything with legs, except tables, and they eat everything with wings, except airplanes. Hence, pretty much everything is fair game.

When I lived there, the most unique things I ate were camel, horse, yak, and inscets. The horse was not very good. I would try dog if given the opportunity.

My philosophy is that if other humans eat it, I can eat it too: except, of course, the urine eggs.


Yes, that is very true as well.
Th most exotic thing I have ate was shark meat. Shark fin soup doesn't count!

It boils down to everyone but vegetarians being hypocrits when it comes to food,I'm a hypocrit too in the end I eat meat but I think the way animals are killed and bred is wrong.

Yup, slaughtering a dog for food is no different than a pig or cow or what not.  All of these animals feel fear and pain of slaughterhouses, so I think it's all wrong and terrible.  Even hunting a wild animal for meat is different than having an animal caged and mistreated for its entire life.

And Balut - I will never eat that.

I've had Deer, Bear, Elk, Beaver, squirrel, sheep (&lamb) Dog, pig, Rattle Snake, Shark, Alligator, Emu, Chicken, Cow, Ox, rabbit. Once you get most of it in sauce or cooked you can't usually tell the difference anyways. Food is food. Living on a farm as a kid you sometimes became attached to the animals as pets, but you always knew that they would eventually end up on the dinner table. I remember having packages of meat in the freezer labeled with the animal's name (Daisy, Agnes, Piggy,) instead of beef, chicken, bacon.

Now, in India it's custom to bury the dead (humans and animals) in rivers. People collect bones from the river bank and sell them to be made into bone meal. The US use to be one of the biggest importers of bone meal and it was primarily fed to cattle. The practice has taken a hit due to Mad Cow disease concerns, but it still happens. Even in the US animal bones (especially cattle,) are rendered back into feed for livestock. That's a lot more disturbing to me then eating animals we consider pets.

You sound like a vegetarian !!  tongue.gif  Are you ? but, I think hunting down animals is a bad thing too, no animal deserves to die just because people like the taste of its flesh and blood.  no.gif

Yeah, I am a vegetarian.  I don't really see a need in eating animals anymore; we don't need that to survive and the way it is done is usually barbaric.  I am less opposed to (legally) hunting animals for food than having them raised in misery in a slaughterhouse.
