    I do think people in rich countries shouldn’t lecture poor people who eat dogs. While we find it disgusting they are starving and will eat whatever they can. People in India think westerners are disgusting by eating cows....should we stop?

      It's a fine line Patty, a very sensitive topic. Everyone has their own opinions. For many people dogs are part of the family so the thought of eating the meat makes them shudder.

      If people choose to eat dog, it's their choice, and as you say many people eat cows which is an alien concept to others... it's a very awkward topic for everyone to agree on.

    You are so wrong on a few points. For one, dog meat CAN be found in the top tier cities. Two, it is not just in the south.

      Hi David, thanks for your comment. Top tier cities like Beijing, Shanghai and Shenzhen have no restaurants that sell dog meat that we've ever seen. We are open to being proved wrong, but this is something we've never seen.

      Dog meat isn't strictly found in the south, and we never stated that, we said "these are mainly based in the south", which is indeed true. However, Dandong a northern city bordering North Korea does indeed have restaurants that sell dog meat, we are certainly not denying that, but the practice is much more common in the south of China.

    Senstive topic. I get it's not common but it certainly exists not just in China, but other parts of Asia

      Yes indeed Artur, it does indeed exist. The point of the article is to debunk the myth everyone in China eats dog, and it's readily available everywhere, which it isn't.
