Whew, Dog Meat Not Menu Special At Olympics In Peking.

I'd say that makes sense. Although I'd only be offended if they'd not made it clear what meat came from dogs. If I couldn't tell which was dog meat, then I'd probably go vegetarian for the interval.

Dog meat has been struck from the menus of officially designated Olympic restaurants, and Beijing tourism officials are telling other outlets to discourage consumers from ordering dishes made from dogs, the official Xinhua News Agency reported Friday.

Waiters and waitresses should "patiently" suggest other options to diners who order dog, it said, quoting city tourism bureau Vice Director Xiong Yumei.

Dog, known in Chinese as "xiangrou," or "fragrant meat," is eaten by some Chinese for its purported health-giving qualities.

Beijing isn't the first Olympic host to slap a ban on the dish.(more in article)
