I suppose it was only a matter of time before someone cooked up the idea (no pun intended) to sell “dog meat” online. And it’s no surprise that a lot of people are not too pleased with the concept.

“Controversy has arisen over an online dog meat retailer. According to the city of Sungnam on Tuesday, written protests and appeals have been flooding the city’s Internet message board since the online meat shop opened in April. Dozens of posts to the city’s message board demand to know why authorities are turning a blind eye to the illegal sale of dog meat and urge the city to shut down the site.

The retailer, which is based in Sungnam’s Moran Market, home to Korea’s largest market for edible dog meat, sells “premium” and “standard” dog meat on the Internet. It features photos of the meat as well as cooking ideas and suggestions for spices and vegetables that go well with dog.”
