Defending dogmeat. A Korean newspaper

Defending dogmeat. A Korean newspaper editorial counsels Koreans to simply ignore Western criticism of the practive of eating dogs, and defend the practice on the grounds that eating dogs is no worse that eating horses or cows. I've seen exposes on the practice of eating dog, and they always revolve around the terrible conditions in which the meat-dogs are kept, and the cruelty of the slaughter, but based on books like Fast Food Nation, it doesn't seem that these practices are any nastier than those that we in the west engage in when raising and slaughtering cows, sheep and chickens. This is hardly a defense, but it does point out the essential sentimentality of the west's horror of eating dog.
