    Not really. My mother has told me about how she and her siblings used to play with the rabbits on the farm where she grew up, and then eat them for sunday dinner. People who have grown up in a traditional farm setting have different attitudes towards animans than city people.

    Traditional farmers don't treat the animals like pets. Indeed they play with them, make sure they've the right conditions and treat them well, but they don't consider them pets. There are some exceptions when children get very attached to a pig or duck and make it their pet, and they refuse to eat the meat. In typical farms, even the dog sleeps outside, to guard the house, not in the bed with the owner.

    I was making a specific example with rabbits, there the lines might blur somewhat. Rabbits have a certain pet-friendly format, cows and pigs don't.

    Hmm, that depends on who you ask. There are some peoples who find pigs cute enough to make pets and treat them as their dog, keep them in the house.



    But as I've said, playing with animals like rabbits on a farm and considering them pets is little bit a different. Children will play with almost any animal, cows and pigs included. But a pet isn't killed, it has the usefulness of a company animal. A pet isn't bred for the meat as a farm animal. I'm saying there's a difference between pets (raised specifically for company) and livestock (raised specifically for food or profit). That's how it's in the countries which eat animals like dogs and cats too. The dog which is kept in the house and sleeps with the owner won't be consumed for food.

    I wouldn't eat neither the foods mentioned above, nor the kosher (shechita/ ritually slaughtered) food.

    Dog meat just looks horrid, not to mention the creepy crawlers that pass for food over there in Asia.
    This looks like a bad case of cooking. It wouldn't look any less disgusting if the head was of a pig or cow.

    I think this looks disgusting too:



    Prepared properly, dog food looks like other meat:





    I wouldn't try it because it's not normal, then again Icelanders do eat some things which seem exotic and gross out Europeans.

    In the part of Finland where one of my ancestors later moved the harvests were destroyed by frost in the years 1695 and 1696 and the subsequent starvation lead to many children becoming orphans, the parents probably tried to keep their children alive by giving them what little food they had and therefor were the first to die. They had tried to survive by eating the bark off of trees and made bread from straw as well as a drink made from juniper berries but it wasn't enough. Once their parents had died the children apparently turned to cannibalism and they later died from diseases because of this. This according to contemporary church records.

    I have eaten snake and crocodile(or maybe it was alligator) and they were fine if a little odd textured. Most people I know here are icked out at my enjoying black/blood pudding. I like shellfish, squid and eel which are all taboo to some. I will not eat shellfish/fish unless they are super fresh.

    I would not eat horse, cat or dog unless I needed to for survival. I would be more comfortable eating insects and unusual animals like rats, raccoons than a cat.

    I would have no problem eating lama or camel it was appropriate. I would not have them in the US or Europe in normal circumstances.

    I have read enough field and survival guides that I think I could eat what I have to. I do not know what I would do if I were on an airplane that crashed on a mountain.

    Blodpudding is tasty food for any Swede , in fact I'll be having it for dinner some day this coming week. I will also enjoy pölsa which is like a mince made from various intestinal parts like cow's heart and lung and pig liver, the brand I'll be having even contains beef tendons according to the package. I'm not squeamish about eating intestinal parts from cows or pigs as part of a dish like pölsa but I wouldn't eat them separately. I've eaten boiled pig's tongue a few times but it's not something I enjoy, the texture with the taste buds and everything is too weird.

    Pölsa:

    I've eaten horse as part of a processed meat product such as falukorv or Russian salami and it doesn't bother me, to me it's just another meat.


    By the way, does anyone here enjoy eating liver of beef? It's one of those traditional foods which I will never learn to like, both the taste and the texture makes it almost impossible to swallow.

    For me horses are not as dear as cats and dogs but are work/companion animals not work/food animals.

    I think beef liver is OK but not great. I used to have a good source for calf liver and liked that with bacon, onions and mushrooms.

    I am OK with organs and viscera of pigs, cows, sheep. I am not interested brain or mountain oysters.
