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...

You cannot say that. Some of the things Americans might find disturbing is normal to other countries.

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!

A photo-journalistic piece of someone's dinner to be.

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

It isn't a cat.

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.

Too small to be a thylacine, sadly. Looks like your common mutt. Besides which, I doubt they'd allow anyone to remove thylacines from Tasmania if they found any still around; technically, Tasmanian Tigers are extinct and have been since the 20s, though people (credible people, like rangers and other officials, to boot) have been reporting sightings of them off and on for almost thirty or so years now.

Nice catch though; surprised anyone actually remembers what they looked like.

Even though I am still young (11 years) my lifelong goal is to revive the extinct creature, to see it alive and walking around. I have studied up on this animal for months, and actually it was extinct in 1901. I'm glad that amazing people have found a newborn cell and have actually revived it to a premature newborn. And this is why I want to be a conservationist.

I thought it was from way back when they were still alive, thinking it must've been a pup, but looking back at the picture now, the photo is too high of quality to be from that long ago. This photo makes me sorrowful for the mutt, but very well in your work. I approve.I do not approve of the concept, but of the photo itself.

Ah. Last info I had said it was in the 20s the last in captivity died. So maybe outdated info. Thanks for clearing that up!

I liked the photo mainly because it's a look at a culture much different from my own. I understand the subject is sensitive to many people, but it's life. You scrape to live and whatever's at your fingertips that is edible is free game.

I didn't take the photo; just a passersby who found someone with similar interests in my own and figured I'd help clear something up is all ^^
