I have never eaten dogs but I don’t see why it’s any less ethical than eating pigs or cows. Unless you’re proposing an end to all consumption of meat, then advocating a ban on one culture’s practice of eating a particular kind of meat just seems like a hypocritical politics of cultural racism. Am I misunderstanding this? Are all signers of this petition already vegetarians in their own country? And if so, are they also protesting the heinous treatment of livestock in Europe and America?
