British Celebrity Chef Says If You Eat Pigs, You Can't Be Against Eating Dogs

British television chef Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall believes that no one can object to the idea of eating puppies as long as they are stuffing their faces full of bacon.

The chef and star of ‘River Cottage,’ a man known for eating unusual “foods” like placenta pate, curried fruit bat, giraffe and calf testicles, would not stand opposed to a “high-welfare organic puppy farm.” Yep, essentially a farm that sold puppies as meat.

He said about the ethics of eating dogs to British Magazine Radio Times, “You can’t object, unless you also object to the farming of pigs. It’s an artificial construct of our society, a cultural decision, to make pets out of dogs and meat out of pigs. Both animals could be used the other way round, although pigs probably do make better meat than dogs and dogs better pets than pigs, but it’s not a foregone conclusion.”

While Fearnley-Whittingstall makes the same argument that many animal protection organizations make, the animal organizations come down on the other side. They argue that if you wouldn’t eat a dog, you shouldn’t eat a pig. I’m sure if pigs could speak, they’d tell us the same.

When asked if he would try eating dog or cat, he said, “Not unless I was on the point of starvation. In principle, but not in practice, I have no objection to a high-welfare organic puppy farm.”

At least we know he’ll be leaving the dog and cat population alone…for now.
