According to TV chef Hugh Fearnley Whittingstall in a magazine interview, he would have 'no moral objection' to eating a puppy provided it was reared in an organic farm environment.
The chefs comments come on the back of previous campaigns to raise awareness about animal welfare in farms.
The debate over eating dog meat has raged for many years with some arguing that eating a dog is no different to eating a chicken.
