Re: Do Swiss people eat cats and dogs ?

Dogs, yes -- we've covered that before -- but I don't think a lot of cats get eaten. IIRC, they're not particularly good (as food) for humans.

Wikipedia seems to think that some Swiss eat pussy.

Re: Do Swiss people eat cats and dogs ?

No biggie, dog (St. Bernhard) is quite tasty, just like bear, haven't tried cat but I hear it is just like rabbit, (there is a reason it's called: "Dachhase, Roofrabbit) Horse is fantastic on the BBQ, marinated in satay sauce, chopped garlic and a Naga Joloka, Om nom nom, and to my delight I can get horsesteak here on Malta.
You see, one man's EEWWWW! is another man's Barbecue. En guute!

Re: Do Swiss people eat cats and dogs ?

Not big news to me as I have lived in Vietnam for a few years.

And realy it should not be too surprising to those Swiss that dont lap up the news from sources such as Blick.

It is true that there are some mountain people who have not changed their beliefs etc for many generations. This is simply an example of just that. In the past many peasants of Europe were eating anything that they could get their hands on, including grass, leather belts etc.

According to this article, they do
Absolutely - regarding cats, anyway.
Probably less nowadays, but in the past they were a staple.

My wife's maiden aunt, who still lives in the 250yr. old family farmhouse, even has the pelts on here wooden dining room/lounge seats, to keep the butt warm - they're looking a bit moth-eaten after 50 odd years , but she can still refer to each one by name and remember how long it needed stewing for, depending on how old (tough) the donor was.

On a farm there was always a continual supply.

Either you eat meat or you don't. I don't see why you can eat rabbit or lamb, but not cat...

That being said, I don't care about eating dog, but I wouldn't eat MY dog. As I eat rabbit but wouldn't eat my pet one. Anonymity is the key here

Re: Do Swiss people eat cats and dogs ?

When I read this in The Local I assumed it was a wind up.


However the source of the story Tomi Tomek of SOS Chats Noiraigue appears to be genuine: http://www.soschats.org/ (It's quite an elaborate hoax if the website has been created just to back up the joke).
According to this organization's website 14,000 people have signed a petition to outlaw the trade in cat and dog meat.
What I want to know is where is this stuff sold? Certainly not in my local Coop & Migros, or even in the sole local butcher.

You're not allowed to sell cat and dog meat. But you can butcher them yourself for you own consummation

Food labelling is always accurate, eh?
Wasn't there an instance, where horse was sold labelled as beef, in the UK a short while ago?


...... and I suggest you don't use the butchers' in Royston Vasey, either.
