South Korea’s dog-eating festival: Where superstition, myth and cruelty meet I am not a vegan. I am an animal lover I eat meat Yes i am appalled in the conditions these dogs and cats are kept in. But not the fact that they are eaten. I find it hypocritical that the author and whoever else are critical of the fact that the cats and dogs are consumed. Its funny how just because cata and dogs are cute that we are appalled that they are even eaten and the koreans are monsters. We eat cows,chickens and pigs and yet often they are kept in just as bad conditions If there was some artificial, safe and tasty alternative/manmade/artificial. I wouldnt eat real meat ever!!!! Does that make me a hypocrit in a different way?
