Traveling the north of Thailande on motocycle, I lost myself out of the tourist path. Apparently, hill tribes men believe to eat black dogs, give you special sexual capacities. This man offered me to share, I refused with a smile.

I agree totally with Rob. It's not necessarely "nice" subjects that make great pictures, the story of the picture is important to me and that one is quite special. Might be a little hard to look at, but there are worst thing on TV every day.
Good you have posted that one on TE.

Great picture to share, but not really pleasing to the eye, but it is natural in some countries, such as Southern China, South Korea. It is funny that people in the third have kept superstition alive. Then again everyone has an opinion. Thanks for sharing

What a shocking image Steeve. I'am suprised that you did not give it a try. You seem to be in the deep bush for this shot. It's very interesting because it demonstrate how much different some cultures are. Nicely done.

For some reason, this photo disturbs me more than the other similar ones. maybe it is the fire... or the fur... whichever it is, i wouldn't want it as like a wallpaper or anything, lol. but it really reminds me of a National Geographic picture! the composition is good, and the subject what TE is all about. thanks!

Very interesting, I hav heard about this before but now I see it for the first time. It is very strange. Thanks for sharing the photo

That's true that it's a strange sensation to see this man cooking a dog, because we can't do it here. But what is strange is that the animal has not been emptied.. I think that it's just a joke from the man. But I know that people eat dog, but not in this way.
