TV Chef says: You Might As Well Eat Puppy Meat

TV chef Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall has proclaimed that eating puppy meat is no more morally wrong than eating pork.

Asked whether he would try loin of labrador or cat liver, he said: "Not unless I was on the point of starvation."
"In principle, but not in practice, I have no objection to a high-welfare organic puppy farm."
"You can't object, unless you also object to the farming of pigs. It's an artificial construct of our society, a cultural decision, to make pets out of dogs and meat out of pigs."
"Both animals could be used the other way round, although pigs probably do make better meat than dogs and dogs better pets than pigs, but it's not a foregone conclusion."
