This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything Cambodia-related. This discussion forum is at the top of our site because it's usually the busiest part of the expat community chatter with random topics on just about everything, including expat life, Khmer politics, Cambodian blogs we have or have come across, or whatever else our members want to discuss. Whether you're an expatriate, tourist, Cambodian or random traveler just passing through South East Asia, you are welcome to talk about anything or start new topics yourselves.

Personally I have a bad feeling about telling the Cambodians they shouldn't eat dog. What's next? Muslims protesting at Western slaughterhouses? Would that be acceptable to the dog lovers around?
Like telling the Japanese to not eat whale meat.
Even though it is not eaten in the same volumes now, Japan does not think that other countries can tell them what they can and can't eat.
Whaling nations have all said that the practice is part of their culture and should be able to continue in a sustainable way.
They think of eating lamb as we do eating dog, ive not met one cambodian that wanted any of my lamb shank ( lucky for me)
as for people here saying they dont eat meat at all for buddhist reasons, i call that BS, only met a few wont eat beef but pork, chicken etc are fair game.....
out in the provinces chicken seems main diet

Imagine indian organisation coming in occident and trying to close beef slaughterhouses.
Took long enough, I was waiting for the first inane comment like that.
Why is Kinetic's post inane?
How is an Indian organisation trying to close down a beef slaughterhouse in Cambodia different from Four Paws, a global animal welfare organization trying to close down a dog slaughterhouse (not that I reckon they exist on a large scale but that's beside the point) in Cambodia?
