Is Australia going to farm their iconic dingo for dog meat in Asia? An Australian conference will discuss this proposal as the country teeters on the brink of entering the dog meat trade. One presentation is entitled “Creating dingo meat products for South East Asia – potential market opportunities and cultural dilemmas” with topics on harvesting dingoes for meat. What are your thoughts?
Harvesting is code for dog farms, similar to South Korea where dogs are born into iron cages, live on iron-mesh flooring and never get to touch grass under their paws or run at speed and stretch their legs before being brutally slaughtered for meat. There is no humane method to slaughter dingoes or dogs for human consumption.
As a front line fighter of the dog and cat meat trade and an Australian wildlife animal rescuer, I am beyond appalled. To implicate Australia with the barbaric dog meat trade is one step before introducing it to Australian shores, where public outrage would erupt.
It is terrifying to think our iconic dingoes ‘and wild dogs’ are currently the topic of discussion to become part of the dog meat trade. Dingoes are not domestic dogs and have unique physical capabilities which are generally impossible for dogs.
Dingoes can go three weeks without a drink. This phenomena was uncovered in a dingo-tracking study being carried out in some of Australia’s harshest desert country. Dingoes choose a mate for life and when it’s partner dies, it is not uncommon for the living mate to “mourn itself to death.” Dingoes cannot bark and are locked genetically into annual breeding cycles.
* the dingo’s joints in their paws are all double jointed, allowing them to rotate their wrist joints, giving them enormous range in extracting eggs, opening gates or doors, etc with their paws.
* the dingo’s head is huge, with a very large brain and extremely large jaw bones. If their head fits into a space, the rest of their body can squeeze through too.
* dingoes have peripheral vision of 180 degrees without turning their head.
* dingoes can rotate their head right around past their spine in both directions.
* dingoes are the epitome of a survivor. Read more: click here.
If the decision goes through, Fight Dog Meat will do all in my power to shame and expose everything I can until the decision is revoked. Most Australians believe our wildlife should be protected and not harvested by for profit. Profiteers should not be promoted as ‘conservationists.’ Do NOT implicate Australia with the cruel and barbaric dog and cat meat trade!
