    naaaah “last year 150.000 were slaughtered.” wouldn't it be better if the world just stopped eating meat?

    Horse meat is OK but I prefer beef, good health be damned.

    PS: @2 That's beef as in the meat, not you Beef.

    If there is a “supply” is because there is a “demand” , pretty basic concept . I agree @ 3 I prefer beef also .... just imagine, some loaded ribs, 1 inch cut (with salt only) on the grill , cooking very slowly (Medium or medium rare?) ....Oh God, i'm getting hungry!!

    @2 I rather give my dog argentine horse meat and not chinese dog food, couple years ago here in the US, the dogs were dying left and right because of that .....
