    No, I haven't.
    I go to China Town in Chicago once every couple of months and I've eaten a lot of other strange things.

    Approximately 20 million dogs per year are killed for consumption in China. Fact.

    TP fail of epic proportions.

    Friend or food? Dog meat trade divides China
    Peter Li, Special to CNN

    Updated 0616 GMT (1416 HKT) June 19, 2015

    (CNN)Yulin's dog meat "festival," where some 10,000 dogs are slaughtered and served up as meals, is often wrongly assumed to be an ancient Chinese tradition.

    In fact, the festival only dates back to 2009 when it was launched in the city in China's southwest to celebrate the summer solstice.

    The consumption of dog meat does have historical precedence in China.

    At its height during the Han Dynasty (202 - 220 AD), dog meat was considered a delicacy.

    Yet, dog eating soon lost favor and by the Sui-Tang dynasties (581 -- 907 AD), dog eating had been rejected as an indecent habit.

    China dog meat festival: Is it really so bad to eat dog?
    By Julian Baggini

    Updated 9:58 PM ET, Sun June 19, 2016

    (CNN)It's that time of year again when the Lychee and Dog Meat Festival in Yulin, China sets off a global debate on animal welfare and the limits of multicultural tolerance.

    In previous years some 10,000 dogs have been slaughtered and eaten over the 10-day festival.

    In the West, reaction is divided between those who vigorously condemn the festival and those who claim that it is a kind of cultural imperialism to judge China by our own values.

    Both are half-right and half-wrong.
    Take the critics of the festival first. There is certainly plenty for them to truly indignant about.
    There is a belief among some that the dog meat tastes better if the animal is slaughtered when distressed, and there are even accusations that the animals are sometimes skinned alive.

    It seems to me that this practice is still fairly common in China and there is ample evidence to support this.

    Cannibalism, on the other hand, is quite rare....in any country, let alone the US.
