Havenít knowingly eaten dog but have been to restaurants that have.

The Little Hanoi restaurant in Hanoi is one place.

Had a lunch there in 2014 where the puppies were so fresh they sat in a box at our feet.

Admittedly, I have no desire to eat dog even though Iím not a fan of them as pets.

Feel the same towards cats although I do like them as pets.

But if others can kill them swiftly and humanely then have at Ďer.

Now, as for guinea pig, well that is a specialty.

Had that tour at an equator museum in Ecuador in 2015 and there was the tour guide, my wife, myself, and a Swiss vegan.

We enter a hut and you can hear squealing from a pen in the far corner.

The guide asks: do you know what those are?

Wife replies: yes, we had one for dinner last night.

The vegan had this look of horror on her face as she looked down at the cute guinea pigs....

Little did they know that their neighbourhood grassroots activism would inspire an international carnivore pilgrimage to Toronto...

When I read about the first protest, where Mr Hunter sat down and carved a deer leg in the front window while the horrified protesters watched, I was sitting at the bar at a similar small locally-owned restaurant with the chef carving raw meat close by.  I mentioned it and he said he'd already read the story and got a laugh out of it.

I understand that there are ethical and environmental arguments against eating meat.  After watching happy cow videos on the internet, I often have second thoughts about eating meat myself.    However, I think Marni Ugar and her friends should, you know, **** off.  They're making fools of themselves and making vegans as a group look bad.

I used to enjoy the Tapas bar that was part of the hotel I used to frequent on my way through Madrid. Various meats that were dried, smoked, salted etc., hung on hoists over the bar. You could ask for a specific or just request a mix and the barkeep would lower a few, carve them up, add some salsa and you had a great little snack in front of you with a fresh cerveca as the remaining chunks were re lofted.
