Fresh Cooked Christmas Canines Advertised in Prague

Posted: Jan. 3rd, 2013  |  By Michael Pearse

Pet lovers might recoil at the concept of man's best friend served up on a platter, but it's actually animal lovers in Prague who put forward the advertisement to raise awareness of the cruelty they see in the fairly recent tradition of butchering and serving up carp as a Christmas treat.

Activists fighting for animal protection yesterday staged a protest against the traditional sale and killing of carps in the street before Christmas in the Czech Republic.


They attracted public attention by their stall with a sign "The Sale of Christmas Dogs" that they built in Prague centre.


Dogs are kept as pets in the Czech Republic. However, in some other parts of the world people eat them commonly, the activists explained.


They said they consider the sale of carps in the street before Christmas and their eating for Christmas Eve's dinner inhuman and anachronistic.
