Cambodia: Home Dog Meat Butcher
Cambodia has a large dog meat trade, supported by local people and a burgeoning tourist market, which is heavily made up of people from dog and cat eating countries such as China, South Korea and Vietnam. SayNoToDogMeat.Net are regularly told harrowing stories from heartbroken pet owners whose pet has been stolen by dog snatchers in Cambodia.
I don’t know the origin of the dog in the photographs, except that it seemed a friendly and docile dog, meaning it does not appear to have been a homeless street dog. Consequently, this dog may have been a loved stolen pet.
The dog was most likely tied up with its legs trussed together and it’s mouth tied shut and it was quite possibly beaten with a lump of wood, to deliberately “tenderise” it which means breaking bones and deliberately causing great pain and terror in the animal, in the false belief that the meat will produce better results for the man’s libido.
From the photographs we do know the dog was stabbed in the throat and the blood would have been collected in a bowl, for cooking the meat later on. Congealed blood is often used in dog or cat meat cooking and there is even a congealed blood pudding which is enjoyed by many locals. Congealed blood pudding is made from many different animal species blood, including dogs and cats.
We can see the dog was stabbed in the throat and know the blood would have been collected in a bowl, for cooking the meat later on. Congealed blood is often used in dog or cat meat cooking and there is even a congealed blood pudding which is enjoyed by many pet meat eaters, in many different countries. Congealed blood pudding is made from many different animal species’ blood, including dogs and cats. It is also incredibly dangerous to eat as it involves ingesting untreated and untested blood.
As seen in the third photograph, the dog is then hung by its neck from a branch in a tree as the man ignites a hand-held blow torch to slowly burn the dog’s fur off. We can only pray that the dog was already dead when its fur was set on fire – although, this is sometimes deliberately done with the animal fully conscious, seen as another way to tenderise the meat.
