Dog penis hoard seized in meat raid
Thursday, January 17, 2013
Animal disease officials in Taiwan have confiscated more than 400 dried dog penises, testicles and internal organs in a raid on an illegal slaughterhouse.
The Animal Disease Control Center said 435 penises were discovered in a fridge along with the other body parts, while 12 fresh dog corpses were also found in the raid at the slaughterhouse in western Yunlin county.
Media suggested the man could have used the penises as an ingredient in herbal wine due to the belief they help boost male potency.
Two live dogs were rescued. Officials also discovered several collars, indicating some of the dead animals may have been pets.
The owner of the slaughterhouse, who is suspected of selling dog meat as food, has a previous record of killing animals, a center spokeswoman said. He could face a year in jail and a fine of up to NT$1 million (HK$267,515).
Interesting yes, that the owner of a slaughterhouse might have “a previous record of killing animals”?
