Dogs : A Chinese Cuisine Tradition

These images show dogs being cooked and served up as a meal, and it's a popular Chinese tradition.

The dogs arrive alive in cages ready for the slaughter, cut up and cooked at the meat market in Yulin City, Guangxi province, China, and the dogs are chopped up and cooked in front of diners.

While many Chinese still enjoy dog meat, many object to the practice of beating dogs to death to release the blood into the meat.

We realize this whole thing is a tradition that dates back thousands of years.
We have no problem eating all kinds of meat, but when an animal is truly domesticated, well, that's where we draw the line. 
Having said that however, we also believe different people and different cultures have the right to eat what they want.
