    gosh. well i have seen bunnies in some stores as well.

    chickens and cows and lamb too.

    what will they think of next???

    and those poor carrots, turnips and tomatoes

    who is to say that because they can't speak that they are any less living than animals.

    it's a crazy world

    Personallly, I can't get my head round frog's legs...I'm sure they must be good since I can find them everywhere...but still!

    That said, I've eaten crocodile and alligator, ostich and emu, snake, eland, springbok, kudu, gazelle and zebra. plus many other exotic animals when I've been travelling as well as the normal stuff you can buy in supermarkets and specialist butchers.

    Frog's legs is where I draw the line.

    I'd like every CAFO to be dismantled and go back to treating animals, all animals like living breathing beings, but unfortunately people are swayed by cheap 'meats', and puts that above those animals. For shame.

    Here's some reading if you care at all:

    http://regionalworkbench.org/USP2/pdf_files/pigs.pdf

    Eating Animals by Jonathan Saffran Foer
    Omnivore's Dilemma by Michael Pollen

    In Korea they eat dog meat, but it's considered very special, so you won't accidentally eat it. Personally I wouldn't want too, but other than eating chicken right now I don't eat meat (didn't for the past 5.5 years living in Canada). Although I'm sure the chickens here aren't raised any better, I'm just tired of sitting at the restaurant and not being able to eat because everything is meat based here Also, the tides they be changing here, most young people/children wouldn't dream of eating dog meat, since those generations have been living with them as pets.

    Also up until the 70s I believe horsemeat was used almost exclusively in the burgeoning pet food industry. Since most humans, are much like you and would not eat horse meat, and most it was poor quality (work horses/race horses), they created this industry out of it.

    Also, I'm not crazy to believe animals should be given a good life before being eaten. They 'give up' their life for us, the least we can do is treat them humanely.

    This is the type of farm we should be getting meat from:

    You should be following what's happening in Europe about this. The DNA from horse meat has been found in many ready-meals across the continent.

    Our store (Maxi) sells full rabbits and horse meat. I saw rabbit once in Ontario, but never horse meat; it was quite off-putting! I would never eat horse (and can't understand why others would). It was surprising to see that there is a market in Quebec for it.
    Because of fake prints, stacking manus is no longer allowed
    But you can still stack Coupon Zone + 1x Manu, like other Maxi / Loblaw Stores

    One of the top steakhouse restaurants in Montreal called "Joe Beef" has horse steak on their menu.
