Cat stew


Article: "Boiling a live cat... Do you know what a 'Nabi stew' is?"

Source: No Cut News via Naver

Journalist: Can you explain what's going on in this photo? There are four cats in this apple box, right?

Animal Rights Association: Yes.

Journalist: So they were put in mesh bags, one each, right?

ARA: Yes. The kids weren't able to move and just layed there quietly. The picture was taken in Busan, a street in Nampo-dong.

Journalist: Where are the cats being sold to? Not as pets, I'm sure?

ARA: The ones being sold now are all adult cats. No one will want to adopt adult cats as pets so 99% of them are being sold for consumption.

Journalist: I've heard of people eating dog stew but I didn't know cats were also eaten?

ARA: It's called cat stew or nabi stew. It's made in the same way dog stew is, sometimes even turned into an aged drink.

Journalist: How are these cat stews made?

ARA: They'll normally put the live cat in a boiling pot of water and close the lid on it. There are some who believe that it tastes better if it's cooked alive. When you open the pot, you'll see a lot of scratch marks on the inside from the cats trying to claw their way out. Imagine the pain.

Journalist: As a member of the ARA, you must visit these sites often. Have you seen this happen before your own eyes?

ARA: No, we've only heard about it happening.

Journalist: For what benefits are they eating cats?

ARA: They're misinformed. They think that it's good for their joints, but it's wrong.

1. [+2,435, -103] This is not an issue of whether it's ethical or not to eat animals but the cruelty of human beings. These animals are giving us their flesh and bones, we should be treating them with more respect for the duration that they're alive. We need to make sure that they are slaughtered with minimal pain. Humans think it's our right to do whatever we want with anything we have more power over when we're all living beings sharing this world together. We're all worthy, one and the same.

2. [+1,774, -60] Taking vitamins would be healthier than eating things like this;; Deer blood, bear guts, dog soup;;; I've never seen anyone who ate any of those things live a long and healthy life. If you really take a look at the meals of healthy people, they don't eat any of that stuff.

3. [+1,501, -51] Nothing new that humans are the most cruel beings on the planet

4. [+1,485, -581] I bet members of the animal rights associations eat samgyupsal for dinner

5. [+440, -30] Sigh~ Street cats live at most up to three years and live off of trash and other thrown out food... They're exposed to all sorts of diseases, why would you eat that to lengthen your own life.. tsk tsk

6. [+404, -40] I'm not saying that it's wrong to eat cows, pigs, dogs, cats, etc... I'm saying it's wrong to slaughter them in weird and bizarre ways like beating them while they're still alive or magnifying the pain they receive until death. Boiling a live cat? The thought of it alone disgusts me. I pray that anyone who is willing to eat that will have their joints rotted to the bone until their limbs are cut off.

7. [+319, -19] Boiling the cats live? That's so wrong....

8. [+304, -15] I'm a cat owner myself... and I'm not opposed to the consumption of cat or dog meat since they're animals just like cows, pigs, and chickens and it's hypocritical to rank them and decide what's edible and not but.. please, please just slaughter them with minimal pain, it's the least you can do.

9. [+327, -41] At least in the animal kingdom, they slaughter each other quickly and without hesitation by biting them in the throats. Dogs raised for consumption are locked up in tiny little cages, 4-5 crammed in there at a time. They don't even get kibbles, they're lucky if they can lick a bowl of leftover food once a day while they slowly die away... It's not only the point of death that's controversial but the period in which they're alive as well. At least cows and pigs are raised ethically for the quality of their meat..

  5. People boil lobsters and crabs alive sometimes, but that is because their nervous systems are different than ours. So it is said that they feel pain differently. Cats and dogs on the other hand... they feel pain very similarly to us. Doing this just isn't right.
    It is not the killing that is wrong in this case, but the way in which they are killed. These animals can perceive pain, so if we are the ones killing them we should try to make it as quick and painless as possible. It is a responsibility of ours.

    I agree with this. If you can eat cows, pigs, chickens etc then you can probably stomach eating cats and dogs too but the animals should be treated with respect, at some point they were living beings and to treat them as less than that is not done, no matter if they're cat or pig.


    Then again we can barely get people to treat human beings in an ethical manner, to see people treat animals like this is not that surprising.

  10. Although I personally wouldn't eat cat or dog, I agree with comment #8. I can't judge people who do eat them because like any other animal, they can be used for food.
    But please, please, please, don't let the animals feel too much pain or any pain at all. Boiling them alive is just cruel and heartless. They are absolutely disgusting human beings for torturing those poor cats.

  11. This is beyond cruel. It's no wonder people are more afraid of other people than of animals. I seriously hope these acts of cruelty to animals will be stopped and those guilty punished as they deserve to be.

    #6 has got it right.

    Yeah, eating dogs and cats seem cruel and inhumane because some of us own dogs and cats and consider them family members. However, looking at other points of views, many cultures don't treat animals as family, they're just pets or food for consumption. It's fine if you choose to eat those kinds of animals; however, it's not cool to kill them in that merciless manner. It would be better if they just sedated the animal and killed them or at least kill them with one shot (rather than giving the animal a slow death).

    ReplyDelete
  21. These dogs and cats feel the pain, like us...if you want to eat them do it..but at least pay some respect for them and give them a painless death..just..not like this..it's kind of sad.

    I think the reason why a lot of people see eating cats and dogs as wrong is because they're often owned as pet, but in reality cats and dogs are animals. just like cows, pigs, chickens, or lamb. If you eat hamburgers, you're no better than the person who eats a cat. I'm not saying it's wrong to eat animals. I'm not saying it's right either. You can eat what ever you want and it's fine with me, but don't be a hypocrite and talk bad about a person when you're doing the exact same thing.

    Well they could just get a shot gun and just shoot the animal once. At least that'd be a quick death rather than a slow and excruciatingly painful one.
    Personally, I think the Korean government should set some policies about meat sold for consumption (like how they slaughter animals and how they check to see the meat is safe for consumption).

    Rather than just killing the animals, it's more of the abuse of the animals and the enjoyment of seeing them in pain and experimenting on the animals (before humans) is part of the serial killer triad.

  62. "At least cows and pigs are raised ethically for the quality of their meat." Yes we eat cows,pigs etc. but at least there's some regulations, we're not judging what they eat, we're judging at the lack ethical treatment of the cats. Since cows and pigs are most consumed, there's some regulations put in place, not perfect but far better than being boiled alive.

    "Are you at risk for trichinellosis? Certainly, if you order meat at dhabas, or eat bear, pig, cat, fox, dog and wolf meat. Curing (salting), drying, smoking, freezing or microwaving meat does not kill the worms."

    I agree with comment you can't really rank what you can eat or can't eat if your a meat eater. But at least kill the animals with minimal amount of pain we can give them at least tat ounce of respect.

    ReplyDelete
  85. It is true that street dogs and cats are not food animals. But there are places in the world where these animals are raised for food and in those cases it is safer to eat. Not to mention many people eat pork, so they are also at risk for trichinellosis. Cows in the US are sometimes pumped full of antibiotics or the meat is treated with ammonia. Things like that are also not safe.
    It is disgusting to us because we see them as pets, however many people do not so it isn't disgusting to them (although I wonder that the fact that these cats most likely live on trash doesn't deter them). However what should be universally disgusting is the lack of humanity with which they are killed.

  87. I can't judge because I honestly find eating animals like kangaroo's,ostrich and pigs to be well of disgusting. Anyone can say the same with my love of chicken and some seafood. People in Asia eat cats and dogs because it is was no different than pigs and goats. It's western infulence like yours that makes you view it wrong. When at the end of the day an animal is animal, you can't justify taking the life of one and not the other. I do agree that animals should be killed humanely but 99% of the animals everyone eat have been painfully beaten,tazered and killed alive.

    Just saying, the common livestock animals occasionally do have diseases that cause harm to humans (remember MAD cow, bird/avian flu, FMD, etc.). Meat in general is easily contaminated when not properly regulated.



    The reason why there aren't nearly as many livestock disease outbreaks compared to dog meat disease outbreaks is due to the fact that the government places policies to check livestock meat before preparation for consumption.

    It's not just China, it's alot of Asian countries that do it too. It's just more publicized that China does it.


    Anyways, many countries also skin animals alive, burn them, or beat the animals til' they die.


    In my opinion, the best way to solve the issue is if the government of those countries would regulate the meat being sold or make it illegal for those animals to be sold and eaten AND make sure the regulation is being followed.

  113. I got teary reading this. So cruel.. I wonder if the down votes on those comments are from cat eaters who support boiling them alive.. I agree that you don't need to go vegetarian/vegan to be respectful to animal rights. Killing them in the most humane way possible is the least we can do.



    We humans act too entitled to everything. We don't own these animals but just because we're bigger and more powerful, we think it's okay to treat them however... Like the saying goes, if you want to know how good a king is, see how he treats his peasants, not his subjects. Good people will treat everyone and everything with kindness, regardless of social perceived ranking.

  115. I eat meat but always check to see if it's ethically treated.


    Like that netizen said above, if you're using their flesh and bones at least ensure they are slaughtered with minimal pain. How horrible, I wanna cry now thinking about animals being boiled alive ;__;

  120. Jfc! The thought of eating a cat gives me pause since I'm not used to it but I don't condemn it like some do since we eat other animals...but the way they do it is so inhumane! Between my roommate & I we have three cats and the thought of this happening to any of them makes me want to cry.

  123. Having raising a wild cat (a cat that isn't owned by anyone and is born in the wild), it sucks to see this. At least respect the animal by killing it in a respectful way (which means no torturing it).

    And for the people wishing bad things to happen upon these people, shame on you. Yes, it's inhumane for what they're doing, but taking the life of a human isn't going to make it better and puts in the same boat as these people. Besides, animals can produce many more of the same kind of their breeds, but there's only one human race and every human is different.

  129. Just curious. What criteria do you use to choose articles? This blog is mostly about entertainment stuff but you also post random articles here and there. Is there any particular standard or is it completely random?

  130. Humans don't have the right to decide which creature is worthy of living and which isn't. Also, humans are omnivorous. That means if one wants to eat meat, it's his right to eat it.

  149. In its paper, Lobster Biology, Physiology, Neurobiology, The Lobster Conservancy points out that freezing will expose lobsters to an unpleasant, unnatural temperature and that death/loss of consciousness will not be immediate.

    Evidence from studies on other ectotherms suggests that they do not become unconscious during hypothermia. Their reactions are slowed due to physiological alteration of cooling, and they may drift in an out of sleep but freezing is unlikely to render them unconscious like a drug. In any case the lobster would wake up abruptly when put into boiling water.

  150. she isn't saying it's wrong to eat cat. she's saying it's wrong to eat live boiled cat. so you two are both saying the exact same thing. she said that a street cat doesn't seem tasty. that's not the same thing as saying eating of cats in general is disgusting.


    sorry if my comment seem so unnecessary but the "it's the western influence like yours that makes you view it wrong" that made me want to comment because there was no indication in her statement she felt that way



    anyway you two agreed n the end end so i'm just wasting words

  164. ARA: They'll normally put the live cat in a boiling pot of water and close the lid on it. There are some who believe that it tastes better if it's cooked alive. When you open the pot, you'll see a lot of scratch marks on the inside from the cats trying to claw their way out. Imagine the pain.

    ReplyDelete
  171. I don't know what SK's stray cat population situation is, but even in the US, people will almost always choose a kitten over an adult. Young people in particular usually want young animals, and I get the impression that house pets in SK are more of a younger generation thing.



    If the cats are being sold at a market known for that sort of thing or being sold by someone who also sells dog meat, etc. 99% of the cats found in *those* situations might well be sold for consumption. I don't think they're talking about cats in shelters or pet stores (but I can't read korean, so I have no idea about context).

    ReplyDelete
  172. NB doesn't post only kpop articles, she posts whatever's high in the rankings and therefore a big topic of discussion. She's giving you a special perspective on several different parts of Korea and how their own people feel about these things. Be grateful that she put the work in to post this so that you are educated about it.

  173. This is so wrong. They are chucked in boiling water when they're still alive. I can only imagine the pain. There is no decency to make them unconscious first or anything. But the whole thing is just wrong but that part got me.

" I think it's really cruel to boil animal, while it's still alive. At least kill them first, with very sharp knife, so they would die quickly and not suffer. Also I might have to say that this kind of cruelty also happen in Family Outing (old show), at least season 1, because I don't watch season 2. In FO, they always struggle, and to afraid to kill animals that they wanna eat, and end up playing with the animals's live. I know it mostly just fishes, and they do it for fun, but still...

    ReplyDelete
  178. *shudders* why boil them alive?

    ReplyDelete
  179. Mainly the ones who live in poverty, since they can't afford market meat, they need a substitute (stuff they can find on the streets). They also say
    cat meat looks like chicken and tastes like chicken, so I dunno, maybe they try to delude themselves? BUT I'm only speaking for people who are literally starving and hungry to the point where they will eat anything no matter how disgusting and morally wrong it is.

    ReplyDelete
  180. I just threw up a bit in my mouth.


    Not judging anyone who like to eat the more eccentric types of meat (most people eat some form of meat), but the way the kill the cats is so inhumane.


    The way the kill dogs is pretty horrific as well.

  181. Not to start an argument but if that was real, it's a foetus, it's not actually alive so I don't think it's anywhere near as bad.

  182. It isn't inaccurate, as of now there is more evidence to support one rather than the other.

  183. I could care less about them eating cats and dogs, people around the world eat things that I wouldn't consider normal, but please don't boil them alive. If you must eat them then make sure they die with minimal pain then cook it.
