Just in case it wasn't showing:
This is a total lie. First of all, it use "these pets". Most of them aren't pets, even if they were stole from country side as others' property, they aren't treated as pets. They are lifestocks. Also just out of common sens "skin alive"? If vendors are selling it for money, why would they skin it alive other than kill it first save the troubles?
And the problem is not about people eat dogs, is that the whole government systerms are a piece of crap. If the root problem is not fixed, it does not help to put them blame on to eating dog meat.
And them handle any kind of meat in the same way in front of people. I remeber seeing them killing a chicken as a kid. It happens to anykind of lifestocks.
