One man named Zhong stated,"Eating dog meat is a regular thing for me. Dog rearing is the same as rearing pigs or chickens, there is no difference." Perhaps years ago there was no difference. However, societal values have changed and more young Chinese people see dogs as "man's best friend". These views are hypocritical. Many commenters on articles about this issue have displayed outrage over the mistreatment of dogs, but cannot the same be said about the chickens, cows, and pigs in the United States? Again, societal perceptions. Most don't see chickens, cows, and pigs as the same sentient beings as they do dogs. While this is certainly not fair, it's not as easy to get rid of our value system as it is to fight for animal rights.
