Polish Delicacy With An Evil Twist - Dogs Murdered For Their Fat In Poland

Warsaw, Poland 1 February, 2010 - New tests show dog fat was definitely used in a "healing" bread spread seized in Poland last year.

Two women are on trial over a few dozen jars of "smalec", a Polish spread used like butter made of animal fat, which they allegedly made and advertised as "healing dog lard".

Polish Science Academy tests now prove that the lard seized by police last summer does in fact contain dog as well as fat from other animals.

Yummy ;)

I've recently realised that the word "delicacy" doesn't mean something which is really nice. It seems to be a title given to any disgusting food that can't otherwise be sold but as its called a delicacy it can be sold to people with far too much money and no taste.

So where are these evil restaurants in the piece you've posted? Try your fearmongering somewhere else Mikas there's too many englightened people in here to listen to your bleeting, besides, the "dog-fat" topic has already emerged here several times - use the search option.

Is it just me or does anyone else think this is Mark? trying to boost his site.

I would like some confirmation on this accusation, as the site provided is amateur and looks like it is supposed to provoke rather than inform or warn.

why would i be Mark and why would i boost such weak site? which one?

this is the truth... news about poland:

ww.petwellbeing.com/articles/2009/08/dogs-on-menu-in-poland.cfm

Dogs seem to be quite popular in Poland, but not in a good way!

A couple living on a farm near Czestochowa in southern Poland are currently being questioned by Polish police regarding selling lard on their farm that appears to have come from dogs and puppies that have been fattened for slaughter, in an attempt to create one of Poland's famed national dishes out of the dogs.

The couple is selling the lard as an alternative to one of Poland's national dishes, called Smalec. It is a special type of lard that is served with bread as an appetizer of sorts in restaurants throughout Poland.

The 'For Animals' animal welfare group, sent one of their inspectors to go undercover to the farm to buy some of the lard. Renata Mizera, head of the 'For Animals' group and the undercover inspector, stated that the woman had repeatedly expressed the wondrous health benefits that the lard contained, even going so far as to admit that she gave a spoonful of the lard to her daughter's evening meal every night.

"Half a liter of fat was being sold for 37 Euros ($53, £31)," said Renata Mizera.

Mizera's report regarding her undercover investigation also stated that the dogs that lived on the farm "were overfed to the point of no longer being able to walk".

After buying the so-called 'dog lard' from the man and the woman, Mizera on behalf of the 'For Animals' animal welfare and charity group, tipped off the Polish police, who then, subsequently, raided the farm. Upon entering the outbuildings on the farm, the police and the other veterinary officials who accompanied them, found the carcasses of many dogs scattered around the floors, in badly decomposing states.

In a different room machinery, including a bloody axe, and a myriad of blood stained clothing, were discovered. The Polish police also found what they depicted as a "filthy" refrigerator inside which was housed a large assortment of bottles containing the lard.

"I don't even want to think about what happened here," said one police scientist. "It makes your hair stand on end."

No they don't. It was an old man in a village who was making it for his neighbours. Restaurants in Poland use cooking oil, just like anywhere else.

No idea. Both are morons, he runs away from good arguments - no answer to what I've said. Doesn't know how to use a forum hence double posting instead of editing, spamming. Breaking the netiquette by typing everything in bold. And is gullible enough to think that even if somebody believes him, is going to avoid Poland, wishful thinking hehe.

And so what? Why does it put Poland in a bad light ? Just because some disgusting people tried to fool consumers but slaughtering dogs and using their fat does not mean the whole Polish nation does it.

Besides a lot of Coreans and Chinese ( mostly old folks but still) love dogs and bears and whatever flies or run and some Japanese love eating whales and some French frog's legs.

In Europe we had mad cow disease for years because some disgusting English and Irish farmers fed their cows with flour made of animal carcasses.

This is much more criminal than selling dog 'fat because this greed provoked the deaths many people....
don't you think?

while back, in one of the Polish villages that i know of for sure, dog's fat was thought to be a cure for TB. And since there was no other cures, and people were desparate... sad but true.

It didn't actually, but don't let truth get in the way of emotion.

First, there are backward people in every country. I am astonished daily how gullible some people around me are!
Second, coining this a delicacy is a deliberate attempt to sensationalize this sad story - as far as i know, it was a shameful cure, again, for most desperate.

I'm confused.
First foreigners insist on Poles to embrace various aspects of multiculturalism.

But when they do they protest.

Dogs are quite tasty! We had a dog named "Rex" that was the most delicious meal I've ever had. We nearly got busted by some PETA types though, they saw the dog chained to a tree in the back yard pulling itself along by its front legs. When they asked what had happened, I told them he had been hit by a car and had his rear legs amputated. The truth was that we had cooked his rear legs and was saving the rest of him for a birthday celebration! Boy, animal rights types sure are stupid!

A nice joke posting, Timotei. You have to be careful with such posts, though. Maybe some winks next time just to be sure?

Koreans eat dogs regularly, although probably only a certain segment of the population now, as young Koreans are probably politically correct...This dish is called 'Basintong' or 'Healthy Stew'.

An old room mate of mine who was stationed in Korea w/ the military ate it and said it was tasty.

That's why there are so few straight dogs in Poland.(To get rid of cats the sure solution is opening of Chinese restaurants).

It depends what you mean by regularly, Joe. That's not what the Koreans in Itaewon, Seoul told me. However, they may have been aware of the bad rep of doing that and fed me some lies.

Chicken seemed far more popular, and kimchee of course.

I heard about that place near Częstochowa but I think the authorities clamped down on it some time ago so I doubt the validity of the info.

I heard it's quite expensive and only eaten by people who really like it as a special treat.

There's a place near Poznań that reputedly do it, but only for the cognoscenti. So you'd probably have to be Korean and certainly known to them before they'd sell it to you.

I think i will make a list of all the nutty anti Polish postings by this beermat nutter....and send them to his Polish wife...hopefully she will bash what few brains he has out of his silly head with the frying pan....

No protein in kimchee, lad.

Must say, though, it's kind of funny to see 'old Fido' skinned and hanging by the neck from a wire.

Eh, then explain why kimchi has 17 types of amino acid, Joe? :) :) It is low in protein when cast alongside tuna but still has some. Also, they eat kimchee with other protein-based foods.

Polish restaurants use dead dogs

Ah I see where the confusion lies here.

You see in Polish, "pies" means ''dog'', so when the tourist demanded "pies"... well...

This would be a promising luxury export product to certain Asian countries.
