Dog food that shames the Philippines

This is a shocking menu where half million dogs a year end up after being snatched off the streets and illegally killed in the Philippines.
After being trussed, muzzled with rusty cans and slaughtered, they end up in restaurants which flout the law to satisfy the growing taste for dog meat.
Customers dine on dog’s head, considered a delicacy, for the equivalent of £2.50.
A dish of dog liver costs about £1.80 while a particular favorite, deep fried paws, are just 85p. “Particularly popular is pulutan, a dog meat bar snack. Another very popular dish is deep fried dog paws, known as ‘spare parts’.
