Take Dog Meat of Nagaland Menu
Dog meat is found commonly across Nagaland and to an extent in Mizoram. Since dog meat is common but dogs are not ‘farmed’ as they are say in Korea & China they are smuggled into Nagaland from Assam, much as they are from the countryside of Vietnam, Laos and Thailand into China. Reportedly 200+ dogs are smuggled across from Assam into Nagaland each day. In Assam ‘dog catchers’ (working for the smugglers) get about Rs 50/ $1 for a single dog they catch – the same dog is sold wholesale in Nagaland for Rs 1000/ $20. In the streets of Nagaland dog meat sells for Rs 200/ $ 4-5 per kg i.e. roughly Rs 2000/ US$ 40-50 per dog which is an amazing 40-50x from the catchers ‘price’ a hundred kilometers away.
All of the dog is eaten with the head as the prized part of the dog. The reasons for dog-meat are many, and ‘traditional’ in Nagaland – dog meat is relished for its unique ‘pungent taste’, it is thought to work as an aphrodisiac, it’s thought to be a ‘warm’ meat for winters and because it increased iron in a human body!
International Animal Rescue Foundation India and Say No To Dog Meat.Net Now call for an immediate ban of all dog meat trade and consumption.

Dear Additional Chief Secretary, Secretary Food and Civil Supplies and Secretary to the Governor;
RE: Dog Meat - Pet Meat Nagaland
We Say No To Dog Meat.Net call for an immediate ban of pet meat consumption within Nagaland with immediate effect.
Pet meat is not a tradition - it is a barbaric culture that is outdated and poses viral and disease risk to local communities and the planets population.
A large a highly respected organisation we are, failure to remove dog meat from the menu, to take action against dog and cat meat smugglers will result in us calling on an international boycott of all travel and trade to Nagaland.
Three days ago we logged all traders that trade into Nagaland - We will if our polite demands are not met issue a boycott with immediate effect supporters by over 20,000 people thus far to date and growing.
