Hypocritical Condemnation of Eating Dog

  Last month, an Italian parliamentarian insisted that Europe should boycott the 2018 Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang unless South Koreans stop eating dog meat. However, I don’t criticize Koreans or Chinese for eating dog as long as they eat in their own countries.                                                                                  According to an Italian news media, 60% of South Koreans eat dog meat, and 1 to 2 million dogs are killed every year for food. At dog farms, dogs are being kept in horrific conditions, covered with feces.                                                                                  Many Westerners condemn eating dog. In South Korea, however, dogs are raised for eating, similar to cattle and swine. There are around 1 billion Hindus, for whom cattle are holy animals. Nonetheless, they don’t criticize eating beef. Those who eat beef and pork should not criticize eating dog.                                                                                  This month, an Australian wildlife expert, Dr. Benjamin Allen, announced in a scientific paper that wild dogs currently living in the Australian outbreak should be rounded up and sent to China to be processed for food. I basically agree with him. The dog meat should be sent to North Korea where many people die from starvation.                                                                                  Lions don’t hunt when they are satiated. We should not kill animals needlessly. Nevertheless, Australia massacre 5 to 6 million kangaroos yearly, only a small portions of which are eaten. Most of them are slaughtered in vain.                                                                                  May 2015, the FAO announced that the number of hungry people in the world has dropped to 795 million ― 216 million fewer than in 1990-92. Still, in developing countries, 12.9% of the population is undernourished, and almost 1 in 15 children dies before the age of 5. Most of them die from hunger-related causes.                                                                               There are many Westerners who eat excessively and became obese, while criticizing eating dog. Eating far more than needed is legally not a crime, but gluttony is certainly a sin.
