At a restaurant in Daejon, South Korea customers were amazed to find 4 metal screws and a metal plate attached to a bone inside their soup. The customers had ordered a bowl of “bosingtang” which is made from dog meat.
The metalized meat came from a dog who was once owned as a pet. Apparently this pet underwent a veterinarian operation in which its leg was reinforced by four screws and a metal plate. Sometime after the operation this pet dog ended up in a dog slaughterhouse where the metal pieces went unrecognized by the butcher and chef.
The customers complained and asked for their money back before filing complaints with the City Office.
It is not clear if the pet was sold by its owner or if the dog meat industry acquired it through a third party. In the past, there have been numerous complaints of lost, abandoned, and stray dogs beings sold to the dog meat industry.
Animal rights groups state this is just one more reason the dog meat industry should be permanently banned.
