VIDEO – Trinidad and Tobago: Dog Meat Uncovered
When some local Chinese residents of Diego Martin, Trinidad and Tobago were filmed red-handed, skinning a dog in the vicinity of a Chinese restaurant, outrage broke out after the video was posted on social media. But when the footage was aired on Trinidad and Tobago television, local people were horrified. As seen in the video, Trinidad and Tobago Minister of Health, Dr. Fuad Khan gives a grave warning for people to be careful what they eat because of the possible serious health effects from eating unregulated meat such as dog meat. The video is not graphic and was aired on Trinidad and Tobago television.
While Trinidad and Tobago does not have an established dog meat trade, this is an example of how dog meat can be taking place closer to people’s homes than they realize, even when not living in dog and cat eating countries. As Dr. Khan says, large numbers of dogs across Trinidad and Tobago have disappeared without explanation or reason. The dog and cat meat trade has become everyone’s problem, whether we live in dog and cat eating countries or not. Thank you for reading, Michele Brown.
