It depends from state to state. There is no federal law prohibiting the consumption of dogs, but it is heavily taboo.

In the US, it is illegal. In Asia, Africa, and Europe, it is ok.

Yes, it's very illegal. Don't ever sell, buy, or eat dog meat. In the US Under current laws it is illegal to publicly buy or publicly sell dog meat for human consumption....However depending on the laws of the State in which you reside it may be completely legal for a person to eat dog meat provided the animal was harvested in a human manor.. The eating of dog meat is more common in the US than most people think,many ethnic groups consider dog meat to be a delicacy.. There are numerous States that have an open hunting season on coyotes(wild dogs) in which if a person chooses to eat the animal it is completely legal..

Several US states have banned the slaughter and consumption of dogs completely. However there are numerous states in which dogs can be used for personal consumption provided they are killed in a humane way.All 50 states have banned the sale of dog meat to the general public and its use in public resturants,However those laws do not apply to American Indian reservations,Several of the Native American tribes still consume dog meat and it is still served in resturants on the reservations on a regualr basis.. Numerous states also have hunting seasons or open year round season on coyotes(north Americas wild dogs)in which they can be hunted in accordance with local laws and used for personal consumption...

People can get tapeworms from eating infected meat. In the US, all meat is inspected before it is made available for public consumption. Meat should be thoroughly cooked before serving.

User Avatar

yes, but if sold for consumption it is reported by the FDA. if police see it in your house, even prepared for consumption, they cant question it.

Methadrone is legal in the US ONLY with a prescription or doctor's permission. It is illegal to possess it for consumption otherwise.

no he/she would still have to do paperwork and do all the background checks,border crossing stuff, and legal us citizen papers. Ex: if a cat wants to be a dog it cant just marry a dog and instantly be a dog too,

It depends on your local laws - but for the most part the legal age to purchase alcoholic beverages are the same as the legal age for consumption (in the US it's 21)

Goat is not a meat supplied commercially in the US and annual consumption is reported to be only a few thousand tons. Goat milk and goat meat are far more popular outside North America and Europe and are the most widely consumed meat and milk in some countries

It is currently against the law for dog and cat meat to be served in the United States, but some restaurants are petitioning to change the law in favor of allowing dog to be served.However, if you do not wish to eat dog meat, there is no reason to be alarmed. Dog-meat is far more expensive than beef, lamb, chicken, and pork, so there is no reason for an Asian restaurant owner to put dog in any dish that is not advertised as such.

Horse meat is a delicacy. Not that many horses are raised for food in the United States, though the meat is supposed to be fairly sweet and tasty. The primary use for horse meat was in dog food, back when it was legal to hunt these feral beasts. The mustangs in Nevada were escaped livestock which now threaten the environment. They are an invasive species that trample vegetation and foul springs used by native species. They are a nuisance, and should be used for dog food. Other than that, horse slaughter has very little impact on us.

Horse meat has been eaten in many countries for probably thousands of years. Like all of so many different food taboos in societies, in the US and other parts of the world, horse meat consumption is considered a strictly taboo food.

User Avatar

Absolutely. 1000 chickens farmed for consumption are slaughtered every second all over the world. It is the most widely eaten meat in the world, with 33 billion of them killed already this year (as of September 14th, 2010).

As of the 1990s, roughly 90 percent of processed horse meat was exported to other countries, with the remaining ten percent going into fertilizer and dog food

Facts about meat are....e.g. -red meat is bad for us in any concision - meat is important in a diet -it gives us minerals -meat comes from the flesh of the animals

User Avatar

No, it is not legal. It's ILLEGAL. That would be considered animal cruelty.If you want to eat dog, I recommend going to China, Korea, Vietnam, or the Philippines.
