Koreans Dogmeat-Eating Tradition Under Fire
401167 05: A worker uses a blow torch to tenderize the meat of dead dogs at a dog slaughterhouse February 15, 2002 in Dong-am west of Seoul, South Korea. Recently a South Korean nutritionist who defends canine cuisine said animal lovers should focus on fighting to save species facing extinction rather than attacking his countrys dogmeat-eating tradition. The centuries-old habit in Korea is also drawing attention as South Korea prepares to co-host the World Cup soccer finals in May and June. FIFA President Sepp Blatter has urged South Koreans to stop eating dog meat during the World Cup. (Photo by Chung Sung-Jun/Getty Images)
