Top 10 Animals Eaten In Other Countries That Will Surprise You

  • Published on May 19, 2016

But only certain kinds of meat; when news broke that the Department of Agriculture was to approve a horse meat processing plant, people got upset.

      @Oscar Wong exactly. people are mad when people eat dogs or guinea pigs, but when we eat cows (which are sacred in India) or pigs (which aren't consumed in the jewish religion) it's ok. it's a bit hypocritical,,,

    You can eat Iguana in the US, as long as it is killed humanely. No hunting license is required either.
    They fall off trees in the colder weather in South Florida.
    You can also buy some from exoticmeatmarkets.

      No, and there are lot of different types of dolphines and dogs, the dogs are not the same as the one we normaly use as pets, the dolfines are not the same as in the dolphinariums either, it's mainly those small fislike creatures that' s catched with fich it's eaten. I would try that mongolian dog dish, it looks delicious to me by the way, as wells as that old European cat recepie.

    Cruel idiots asks- why you eat pigs, chickens? I suggest idiots eat human meat, because it is MEAT..., no? Why not? Because we differ edible object by consciousness!!! Cats, dogs is second from humans, much higher consciousness then chicken, from cats and dogs after many cycles in animals souls goes to humans and start human reincarnation cycle. Of course, i am not suggest eat pigs or chicken, i suggest eat animals who don't feel pain, like fish, bugs or at least kill pig, chicken, beef instantly without ANY pain and stress, then not so bad.....
