meeting : ““Eating Dogs”.
A Talk by John Keeble
My investigation focused on the cruelty and
illegality of the dog meat trade in Thailand and its associated
components in Lao PDR and Vietnam. It carefully avoided any criticism
of the cultural choice to eat dogs.
My own vegan lifestyle makes eating any animal
impossible for me but I am used to working between the lines and being
impartial was not a problem.
I will start by showing a trailer for a TV film
almost finished in London. It sets the scene for our concerns tonight.
There are three main Thai elements to eating
a) the export trade;
b) the commercial domestic market; and
c) home killing.
Although the export trade has grabbed the headlines and TV coverage,
the domestic trade probably kills more dogs.
