Dog Meat BBQ

People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA)

3rd October 2016

PETA activists offered passers-by in London barbecued 'dog meat'. The meat was plant-based and was designed to cause outrage and disgust from those who interacted with the piece. This reaction was then highlighted by outreachers on how the audience members distinguished between a dog and an animal raised for food. The distinguishes were encouraged to point where there was little to no difference in which what mattered. For example both dogs and pigs are capable of the same emotions and the same suffering. The question of why it's outrageous to eat dogs but acceptable, and even celebrated, when eating pigs, cows, chickens, lambs, fish, etc - draws on the concept of speciesm, and the flawed logic that powers it.
