Jonathan Rhys Meyers Eats Dog, PETA Releases The Hounds

Oh boy.

While Jonathan Rhys Meyers was out in rural China shooting his latest film The Children of Huang Shi, the actor decided to try the local delicacies — which included dog meat. Unfortunately, his co-star Radha Mitchell let drop that bit of information and now Meyers has found himself at the other end of the PETA attack. From the article,

“She [Radha Mitchell] says, ‘The challenge was ordering lunch and getting chicken claws, just these weird things that you don’t expect and you’re not used to so you’re constantly adjusting. Jonathan did the dog’s meat. We were in some restaurant and there was dog meat on the menu and there was someone next to us just sitting there with their Chihuahua in a handbag. I was thinking, ‘That could’ve been dessert.’”

While I’m sure eating dog meat is pretty similar to chicken or cow, dogs certainly hold a special place in our hearts; something not lost on PETA. Said spokesman Michael McGraw, “They should take a look at what’s on their own plates. Chickens and cows may not be as cute and cuddly as puppies, but when it comes to their ability to feel pain and suffer, they are no different from animals people call pets. The best way to avoid harming any animals is simply not to eat them and go veggie.”

    I just heard that I had ate a dog when I was a kid ans still living in China (I’m adopted). I almost puked, I was eating a chicken salad in a restaurant then, guess what I didn’t eat from the plate? I haven’t been able to eat meat since then. So I’m vegetarian now.

Going vegan must be at the heart of any environmental discussion.

The Impossible burger doesn’t need to be overtly healthy – it just needs to be vegan.
