I still think this is sick. And the fact that Yoko felt the need to get involved??? What would John have done? I doubt he would have munched down with them in roasted dog. Get naked? Sure! Get hungry for man's best friend? Not likely! This keeps up I'm going to have to add a category for "Weird Dog News."

And does anyone actually pay this guy to get gustatorial in public???

Man eats dog with Yoko

A British artist has proven to be a man of his word after he followed through on his pledge to eat a corgi dog in support of a fox that was allegedly killed.

Mark McGowan says that a hunting group, which included the Queens husband Prince Phillip, allegedly killed a fox earlier this year.


Corgis are famous for being Queen Elizabeth II's favourite breed of dog.

McGowan, who has previously eaten a swan as part of a performance art show, tucked into the dog alongside Yoko Ono, the widow of ex-Beatle John Lennon, live on a London radio station.

"I know some people will find this offensive and tasteless but I am doing this to raise awareness about the RSPCA's inability to prosecute Prince Philip and his friends shooting a fox earlier this year, letting it struggle for life for five minutes and then beating it to death with a stick," he said.

The RSPCA (the Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals) is in charge of handing over evidence to British prosecutors in cases where they believe acts of cruelty to animals have been committed.

They said they found "no evidence" that any offence had taken place in January, when the incident took place.

"An independent post-mortem examination was carried out and found that the fox died from gunshot wounds and no evidence of other injury or trauma was found," it said in a statement.

"The only witness who could have supported the version of events reported in some sections of the media refused to give a statement."

McGowan said the dog, which died at a breeding farm, tasted "really, really disgusting," and added that Ono "looked a bit strange" as she also tasted the dog.
