    1. These countries would call themselves civilised but eating dogs (and cats) is barbaric, cruel and disgusting – just as is eating any animal like cattle, sheep, pigs or birds. Man is nowhere near being “civilised”yet while he still tortures and kills his fellow animals and eats their dead flesh. One day the majority will realise the horror, the enormity and the wrongness of this killing.Meanwhile we live in a man made hell on earth.

      -For me this is cannibalism because whether you like it or not, We have a coexistence with animals, and then get to kill.. Nan

      The problem is the feeling that we unconsciously and automatically be prompted. Remember this child li una Apostilia “The dog man's best friend – Pluto” . Of course I'm sick of eating dog meat or cat, but I can't explain how I have no mercy on chicken or cow. Dog and cat sounds to us like something familiar … But can you imagine if someday we are possible to be born with them, adopt their attitudes or would

    16. Ric Roc says:

      The problem is the feeling that we unconsciously and automatically be prompted. Even if we try to fix them that this Act is inappropriate we unsuccessfully. Maybe if they had the opportunity to come and study here in the Americas could share our feelings, would have the same ancestors? The feeling is like a tree, and in the roots we have the reasons of our attitudes

    17. Mario says:

      How much drama…What is the difference between eating dog and rabbit, Duck, quail, Pheasant, veal (calf) I don't understand this. Every nation has its culture, its gastronomy anyway, It's time to each take care of your backyard didn't think? Or someone is better than anyone in this world????????

    18. Daniel says:

      I think absurd eat those animals that are so kind, kill with ruthlessness. I was horrified with such cruelty, the human being really has no limits with your actions. Should have a stricter law against such practices, lack of respect towards beings who really know what really is love. God is missing
