    Man Eats Dog As A Protest In Britain

    sickening!

    LONDON A British performance artist has eaten part of a corgi _ the breed of dog that is the favorite pet of Queen Elizabeth II _ to protest the alleged mistreatment of animals by the royal family.
    Mark McGowan set up a table on a London street Tuesday and dined on what he said was the meat from a corgi in hopes of drawing attention to media reports that Prince Philip, the queen's husband, had beaten a fox to death during a hunt.
    McGowan's protest was broadcast on a live radio program.
    "We love our animals in Britain," McGowan told AP Television News. "Why is it then that we then allow people _ especially people who are supposed to be ambassadors for this country _ to treat animals with such disrespect?"
    Buckingham Palace declined to comment, and Britain's top animal-protection charity said there was no evidence to support the claim that Prince Philip abused the fox.
    To make the corgi more palatable, it was mixed with apple, onion and seasoning, turned into meat balls, and served with salad.
    McGowan said the corgi he consumed had died recently at a breeding farm and had not been killed for the purposes of the protest. He did not say how the dog had died. (more at link)

    In fairness, the artist did NOT kill the dog. He just ate the dog (or said he did) after it died of natural causes. And the point is to revolt people and then get them to associate that revulsion with the hunting practices of the Royal Family.

    But this is--by my count--about the 25th thread where we "shoot the messenger." Must be something in the water.

    Taste like chicken?

    He didnt kill the dog but ugh I cant even imagine eating it. Poor pooch, he should have been respectfully buried. Not cooked and eaten
