Kim Jong-un labels DOG MEAT a ‘superfood’ in a bid to encourage starving North Koreans to eat it… and advises them to beat the animals to death to improve the taste
North Korea is encouraging its starving population to eat more dog meat by suggesting it contains more vitamins than chicken, beef, pork and duck.
The country, which is ruled by tyrant Kim Jong-un, is still promoting the dish as a traditional ‘stamina food’.
DPRK Today, a North Korean YouTube propaganda channel, announced that the meat has more vitamins than other animals.
It also suggested that dog meat is good for the stomach and intestines, The Korea Times reports.

Meanwhile, the channel also claimed that in order to increase the taste, the canine must be beaten to death and its fur should be removed before being scorched.
However, in neighbouring South Korea, many animal activists have protested about this practice of butchery.
It comes after a number of media outlets in North Korea have recently published stories about the health benefits of consuming dog meat.
The Korean Central Television (KCTV) featured a story which claimed a reopened dog meat restaurant in Pyongyang is ‘being successful in making dog meat more unique.’
