Dog Paws, Anyone?

With the upcoming Summer Olympics happening in Beijing in just a few months, our good friends in China are being scrutinized worldwide for their eating habits. On Monday, the French version of PETA launched a petition aimed at encouraging China to ban, by the Summer Olympics, the killing of dogs for food. Heh, good luck on that. They'll probably keep doing it, but sell them as "chicken paws" or "bear claws" or something like that. Eech.

Anyway, this story is on the heels of this NYT story about the Olympic Committee shipping their own food in for the Olympics. Apparently, the Chinese Chickens are pumped full of steroids. Just like their athletes. Oops, did I say that?
