^ It must have both kosher signs. Examples: cows, sheep, goats and deer are kosher, while pigs, rabbits, squirrels, bears, dogs, cats, camels and horses are not.

Everyone should have the right to choose what they eat, even poor people. I'm sick of hearing right wing fascists trying to give us all stick just because we aren't rich.

Everything isn't an attack Javic, all the article implies is INSTEAD of destroying it, give it to the people that want it/need it. Its not forced, its an option saying IF you want it, have it for free. Flip the perception for a sec, it can be said "the rich are not allowed to get it for free since its meant for people in need" So some rich person could be saying "I'm sick of hearing right wing fascists trying to give us all stick just because we are rich."

There's a saying: Beggars can't be choosers. If you're desperate enough, you'll eat about anything. I know this from experience.


Why? There's plenty to go around so why should people be forced to when there's no actual need for it?

on the other hand, why shouldn't they be given the option of cheap horsemeat ? it's better for you, many peopel say it tastes better and, well it's meat.

Horsemeat is good enough for humans, that is horsemeat from horses that haven't been given steroids or lots of antibiotics. and those that have aren't really suitable for eating for humans or animals.

outside of that there's of course different levels of quality to the meat as far as taste, texture and fat/stringy goes. but that goes for any meat. and just because it doesn't taste as good as the best or is a bit harder to chew doesn't make it unsuitable for humans. just cheaper and less exclusive.

I would have no problem eating horse meat if it was tasty, i would try cats and dogs too, of course they would have to come from a good source not like the stuff they are finding at the moment.
