IDYUTS!



WINDHOEK, Namibia— Sixty-eight villagers in northern Namibia were hospitalized last week after eating a dog that had been killed by disease, the local daily The Namibian reported Wednesday.

The paper said the dog's owner had killed it after it contracted an unknown skin disease and ordered it to be burned. Instead, the inhabitants of Oikokola village insisted on eating the meat, which was also shared with people from the nearby Onepandaulo village.

Naftali Hamata, the director of health for northern Namibia, said the villagers were treated at two of the area's major hospitals and that most had recovered. He warned against eating dog meat or the carcass of any sick animal.

Dog meat is considered a delicacy among tribes in northern Namibia, and calls by animal rights organizations to end the practice are ignored.

Not only that but it must have been one big dog if 68 people all had some.

Makes me kind of wonder just how hungry they must have been before that poor dog came along.

What do you call a Namibian walking a dog? A vegetarian!

I gotta wonder how a backwoods northern Namibia, with villages yet, has a local daily newspaper and 2 major hospitals. Every National Geographic show I have ever seen has them walking for day's just to get to a hut they call a clinic.

Maybe a "major" hospital has a light bulb in it? Sounds like Darwin at work to me.....

I bet the Hindu's in India feel the same way when they see our McDonalds or us eating a steak. It's all about what culture you grew up with.

So sorry, heaven forbid we be insensitive to other cultures on this board. God bless (I mean allah) the suicide bombers--mustn't offend them either.
