I have never eaten dog and do not see myself doing so anytime soon. But I have a hard time squaring serious moral opposition to it with my own meat-eating. Are dogs in a special category because they are a domestic animal (or because, as it is said in Pulp Fiction, dogs have personality)? But then what about horses? I think better of horses than I do dogs but still eat horse. Horse meat is actually quite tasty (I recommmend Hungarian horse goulash, which I had at the wonderful but touristy Goulash Museum in Vienna). Like the clothing issue raised yesterday, food choices are largely culturally-determined and something we should not legislate (unless the animal in question is an endangered species or the animal rights folks could convince us as a society of the certainty of their argument beyond a doubt).
