Truth and exposé about Food – “Pet dog soup (Boshintang)”
Dog meat soup (Boshintang) is a representative of summer health food as well as a center of never ending controversy about it being ‘disgusting food’! One day, we received a preposterous tip about dog meat. A person reported that a metal pin was found in the dog meat he purchased to make soup. After an investigation we found that it was metal plate with screws for medical treatment and the dog was likely a former pet…. Based on our investigation, dogs presume to be former pets were in cages at the auction market that trades ‘meat dogs’ and they were being sold to slaughterhouses. We also captured the scene of dogs from animal shelters being sold to the meat dog farms. Expert’s opinion is that pet dogs are exposed to variety of antibiotics and when they are distributed to meat market, it’s harmful to the people who eat them. Are pet dogs really being sold as dog meat soup?
