The outrage is not so much about the fact that what we deem domestic pets are being eaten.The outrage relates to the fact that the dogs are skinned alive. The cats are boiled alive. This because these folks belief system decrees that the more the animal suffers, the more adrenalin is pumped into the veins & thus the more "potent" the meat is for their strength & virility.Carte Blanche aired a program on this around 10-15 years ago. Related to the same practice in Korea.We organised a protest march to the Korean Embassy (then in) Groenkloof in Pretoria. Achieved nothing other than to appease our conscience because we had voiced our outrage to the Ambassador.
