Dog meat sold in Chinatown?
From CBS Minnesota:
The owner of Minnesota’s largest dog breeding operation still sold hundreds of puppies illegally, despite being convicted of animal cruelty. That’s what the I-TEAM just found and when WCCO’s James Schugel kept digging, things got more disturbing.
“The Canine Culture Center. Do you know anything about it,” asked I-TEAM’s undercover team.
“No,” said the woman at a New York City meat market.
The I-TEAM went undercover in New York City to see the Canine Culture Center, but found a meat market at the same address.
And as the I-TEAM found, a worker there says he only sells dogs to eat.
UPDATE 11/4: The NY Post is reporting that the reporter and the meat market employee misunderstood each other saying "duck" and "dog" and that the shady shipper meant to send the dogs to the home address of a pet store owner. Which brings up another question: This address clearly is not the address of a home. So were dogs actually sent there and what happened to them?
