Would you eat Dog Meat?

Dog meat is considered to be a staple in some parts of the world (including in Nigeria, where am from). Although a large part of the population find it disgusting considering the role dogs play in our lives. One could get a reprimand in some areas for mentioning you do actually eat dog meat.

That is different in places like Calabar, where it is traditionally believed that dog meat does have medicinal effect. I wonder what animal rights people will say to that.

Dogs have transcended just being amusing pets in developed parts of the world. They are used for tasks that would probably have any dog eater gagging and punching themselves. Cannibalising this wonderful animal is hardly the best way to repay their faithfulness. They have stuck by us humans for centuries.

How useful is a dog?

  • Dogs offer a lot of services to help us humans - dogs are guides for the blind - for free. Guess how much you will pay a person to be a guide for the blind.
  • Dogs are used for security. How many times has a dog saved a person's life from muggers and other horrible situations?
  • Dogs are companions - especially for the lonely.
  • The dog's sense of smell is an incredible tool for security organizations. Dogs can be trained to smell out bombs, drugs, even illnesses these days. Oh yes, there are stories of dogs smelling out cancer and alerting the patient.

The list can go on and on. They are all proof that this lovely animal deserves not to be cooked and eaten - unless perhaps, doing so will save a human life.

I want to hear your take on this - especially people who have eaten or do eat dog meat. Give me a reason to believe you have the right.
