The Difference Between a Dog and a Cow

Owner roasts family pet in barbecue

(via veganpeople)

OK, given my views on eating animals, I'm not entirely unbiased about this one, but this just shouts double standards!

How is it more acceptable to eat a cow/pig/chicken/sheep/etc than a dog?

Of course, sentimentality is clearly a good measure for deservingness of life, isn't it? Following on those lines, perhaps, when we get short of food, we should start by eating the person with the least friends and work from there?

They killed it before hand. The main jist of the article is about that in fact. The court ruled that they'd killed the dog ethically it doesn't count as cruelty and the local animal welfare group aren't happy about it.

To be honest, I wouldn't mind if I was eaten once I was dead, as long as I wasn't killed for that reason. Then again, I'm also on the donor register, so I would like to think they got priority over bits of me first.
