UK law says that you can't buy or sell dog meat, but if you humanely kill a dog you own, you can eat it.
But there have been calls to make it illegal
So would you ever eat dog meat? Personally I don't see why not and I am certainly against any ban on eating dog.
Eating of pets is frowned upon in Western Society. I can relate to that.
When we were kids, in the early 50's, my sister and I had a pet pig, a sow named Canasta. In the locality was a pig's Saddle and Bridle, which was passed from farm to farm, as each generation became a suitable age (5 to 8yo), and we both rode Canasta in the field, she even did jumps. Those were probably more in our mind than actuality, she stepped over poles laid on the ground.
When Canasta became too old to farrow (bear piglets), she was taken to the Butchers and my sister and I were distraught. My parents, having explained the facts of a pig's life, told us that sausages and bacon that returned were from another pig. The better cuts were then sold by the butcher and we bought another sow.
When in the military I ran a combat survival course. On day one we had stances demonstrating traps, snares etc . From a “knackers yard “ I obtained an Alsatian pelt and hid it under a bush , next to which we had a small goat carcasses on a spit over a fire. After the lads had eaten some we told them to find the pelt for a warm “blanket “. To this day I suspect some thought they had eaten dog.
Dogs are relished in Korea and parts of China; horse meat is popular in France. I suppose it is a cultural thing. I would not choose it but when desperate logic goes out of tha window
