Well composed, strong PJ picture with the subject - very controvertial for animal lovers. Heavy realism mixed with a grotesque, unnatural pose of the dog's body in 'danse macabre'... DD well deserved!

Its a bit like how some people view rabbits now.
Rabbits were originally domesticated to be eaten and for their fur. But over the years more people have come to have them as companions.
I have rabbits as companions, but I'm not adverse to the use of rabbits as food for human or other animals or using their fur.
This can cause a LOT of trouble in the rabbit world where I am, but its much more common in other countries.
But its seen as better to kill wild rabbits for meat/fur than to keep domesticated ones for the same reason?

Its not that very long ago, 200 yrs maybe? That "western" people also ate cats and dog, as well as using their fur for clothing.
Cats and dogs can bother scavange or hunt to survive, meaning they can be fairly cheap to keep as well as keeping down vermin and rubbish. They are both able to reproduce relativelly quickly. They are very multifunctional. Food, fur, gaurdian, watch dog, hot water bottle, pack or drag animal, hunter, vermin control, sellable etc.

I think it's weird that sexual images have to have a 'graphic image' warning, and this doesn't. :/

That being said, this is obviously a powerful shot.

Ah, you're right. For some reason I didn't see it when I was browsing. I probably wouldn't have noticed if I hadn't been eating breakfast at the time, either!

The whole contrast between the way that 'sexual' and 'violent' images is just a pet peeve of mine, sorry about that. ;)

And congrats on the DD, of course!

People are probably upset because dogs are companion/working animals, like horses. They'e been selectively bred to work alongside humans, (until relatively recently, when they've started being bred for consumption) so eating them is much closer to eating a fellow man than, say, a chicken, which has never served a purpose other than providing food.

People get attached to their pets, but it doesn't make those animals to be treated as pets on the other side of the world, or on the other side of the ocean.

We eat horses, rabbits... in France and it is accepted by the french population, though horses and rabbits can also be pets.

I like the shot, I've just never really understood what's so good about eating dogs and cats. Look at that thing! There's barely any meat on there! Now a nice, fat, juicy chicken is what I'm talking about.. XD

Great photo! In my country we eat cows and pigs, but they're not for display on a market.
They come in nice clean anonymous packages, so we don't ever have to be disturbed...

Oh geez right in the feels.

Brilliant choice making this black and white by the way. I don't think this image would have nearly the punch it does if it was in color. I mean that in a symbolism sense. Obviously the guts being in color would really make some people fall over.

I like this. I've heard of people eating animals that us in america would consider cherished pets, but I never actually saw one in a market for sale after it's been prepared. Great shot.

Why would you HATE someone who didn't want to eat a particular "food"? I'm allergic to shrimp, should I be hated for not eating them?

Would you choose to starve to death? I would rather start to think of it as a food source. I'm guessing he was just less impressed by his will to survive.

It goes to show you, what we would be appalled at eating in some country's and cultures will not be so appalling too others. Such differences in culture make life worth living and exploring!

To quote the artist: "bad land for cats.... and dogs.... "

In China and other such countries that are overpopulated with high levels of poverty, it is not uncommon to see an animal that those in the better-off countries take in as novelty pets up on the market. Out there, you either eat the chicken or you get eggs from the chicken. Same with cows and other animals you can get more material from, like milk. Many families cannot afford TWO cows or chickens or pigs or anything we take for granted in a 'better' country, much less eat one when they do have two. So, they eat something else in abundance; dogs, cats, monkeys, etc.

I agree with someone down below; I am appalled more at the treatment of animals used for food than I am angry about the animals being used for food.

I commend the photographer for showing us the markets in another country; it is good to see how other people are living and sometimes it takes just that to make someone see just how much better off they really are.
