Cows and Pigs are live stock. Eating house pets like Cats and Dogs is more of a taboo.

Ya, I don't understand why it is any different to eat cow than it is dog. If it isn't a pet dog, I don't see why it matters.

A taboo is a strong social prohibition (or ban) against words, objects, actions, or discussions that are considered undesirable or offensive by a group, culture, society, or community.

The majority of society do find eating house pets undesirable and offensive, that's why it's taboo.

1. people have Pigs as pets, even cows.

2. Because society says: eww, its automatically wrong?

3. still dont understand WHY that taboo was formed

Taboo is just something that is not normal to most of us. Like incest. The majority of people don't condone this action, so it's taboo.

In this country. In India it is taboo to eat cows. In Islamic country, it is taboo to eat pork. To say to eat anything is wrong is just saying that your culture is better than any others. You can say, in this country, it is more socially acceptable to eat cows, but not dogs. But you cannot say it is WRONG to eat dogs.

There is good reason for incest to be taboo, and thats why incest has been taboo in every major culture for thousands and thousands of years. Mass amounts of inbreeding leads to recessive genes becoming very prevalent in a population.

There is also some good historical reasons not to eat pork, the most obvious being that it is extremely dangerous if not prepared properly. There is no real reason eating dogs is taboo.

Well because humans have formed emotional bonds in our culture with dogs and essentially created a symbiotic relationship with them. This gives them inherent value to society and we tend to value their lives more than other animals. Not at the same level as humans but definitely significant enough that we would like to enforce humane treatment of them. Obviously this changes from culture to culture(e.g. cows in India, although more for religious reasons).

I agree with this hierarchy cuz i love dogs, but I could see someone arguing against it.

In reference to pigs, with the more and more pot belly pigs becoming domesticated as pets, it wouldn't surprise me to see the culture shift in a direction away from eating pork.

I will continue to eat pork, society be damned. Pork is absolutely amazing.

I disagree that dogs should be treated better than any other animals. I think pets should be treated better than other animals, but not all dogs need to be, or are, pets.

I don't know enough about other cultures to really comment. I'm speaking mainly for the US when I say eating dogs is a taboo. If you took a poll, I bet most of the US would not condone eating dogs.

In the US, most would be shocked and in horror with the idea of eating a house pet. I've said this already. I know they used to kill their first born in China, now that would be another taboo for us.

But that doesn't make it wrong, that's my argument. I agree with you that it is a taboo in our country. I don't think anyone will disagree with that statement. According to our societal norms it is "wrong." But in general terms of morality it isn't. Just like I don't believe fighting dogs to be wrong, personally, I wouldn't ever watch a dog fight, and it is illegal, but Vick has served his time and he should now be allowed to continue his chosen line of work, as long as he is still good enough of course.

In the US, most would be shocked and in horror with the idea of eating a house pet. I've said this already. I know they used to kill their first born in China, now that would be another taboo for us.
Comparing killing a firstborn to eating a dog, come on man...

Would I ever eat a dog? No. Do I care if other people do? Nope.
