Theres a lot of different cultures in the World, that eat different than we do. Although to us that is horrible to them its there main staple. They frown upon us and our eating habits just as much as we do there's.
For instance, Our wonderful Philippine neighbors used to just shake there heads when we would bring our Salmon catch home and clean out the inners in the back Yard. Vinnie used to say we were throwing away the best part.

If you've ever seen Chef Gorden Ramsey's journeys around the world, you'd see what kinds of protein people in the world eat just to stay alive. Tarantula? Yum! Giant slugs...crunchy!
You think our own starving ancestors would be squeamish about eating a ___insert your favorite dog or cat breed here___?
The good part is that in Cultures that have eaten Dog and Cat in the past, are becoming increasingly fond of their former dinner choice and actually starting to turn into a "pet culture" like us westerners!
In China for example..there are now 150 million pet dogs! It's fashionable to walk your dog..all dressed up, or dyed bright colors down the street to show it off. There's even a brand new word for "pet dog" in China! The Chinese word for pet literally translates to "spoiled animal".

Meat is meat. If you live in a culture where meat is scarce - then you eat what's available. My daughter had roast guinea pig when she was in Peru. Back in my horse showing days, we'd refer to an unruly horse as "Canadian Beef" because that's where the fat and sassy ones went ;-)
