New Documentary Shows True Nature of Asia's Dog Meat Consumption

29 September 2015

ASIA - “Eating Happiness” is the first call-to-action documentary exposing the true nature of dog meat consumption in Asia, produced by World Dog Alliance.

Director and Producer Genlin takes viewers through the backstreets and rural villages of Thailand, Vietnam, South Korea and China to uncover the brutal violence of the dog meat trade.

The film reveals that 30 million dogs are killed annually in Asia, 70 per cent of whom are stolen pets.

The film sheds light on several disturbing practices associated with the consumption of dog meat in Asia including a gruelling transport to the slaughterhouse, cruel and inhumane methods of slaughter, and torture prior to death as some Asians have the superstitious belief that torturing a dog prior to death will enhance the flavor of the meat by increasing the dog’s adrenaline.
