    Beijing takes dog off the menu for Olympics


    How Much Is the dog in the window ?

    - Beijing has asked hotels and restaurants in the city to take dog meat off the menu for the duration of next month's Olympics and September's Paralympics.

    Dog is eaten not only by the large Korean community in China's capital but is also popular in Yunnan and Guizhou restaurants.

    A directive from the Beijing Food Safety Office issued last month ordered Olympic contractor hotels not to provide any dishes made with dog meat and said any canine material used in traditional medicated diets must be clearly labeled.

    Concerned that canine dishes might offend animal rights groups and Western visitors, Beijing said restaurants expected to be popular among foreign visitors must stop serving dog meat "to respect the dining customs of different countries."

    The directive "advocated" that all restaurants serving dog suspend it during the Olympics but made no mention of the many popular establishments with donkey on the menu.

    Criticism from Westerners caused the dog meat-loving South Koreans to ban canine dishes for a period of time during the 1988 Seoul Olympics.

    I wouldn't personally eat dog outside of a survival situation but I think it's ridiculous to take it off the menu just to appease the delicate the feelings of foreign people.

    That doesn't sound right to me, Babelfish.

    My parents lived in China. She says dog was fairly common in restaurants but is getting harder to find because they ate them all.
    I could eat snake, gator and pretty sure I could eat horse but I would have to be awfully hungry to knowingly eat dog.

    This is bigger than presidential politics. This is a battle for America.

    Actually, it is right. 'im" would be a contraction of "in dem", "dem" being the dative of the neuter definite article. "dans" in my original post is not exactly "proper German." :D D'oh!

    I can't remember the word in Chinese, but my Chinese neighbor says the word for dog on a menu translates to "fragrant meat". She would roll her eyes when I would call her beloved pet mutt that.
