Authorities in Morocco have launched an investigation into the illegal trade of dog meat after 37 carcasses were discovered in the back of a butcher's van.

A man was arrested in the centre of Casablanca after his Honda vehicle was pulled over for a routine traffic offence, it was reported.

Officers decided to search the car and found the dog carcasses in the back.

The driver told police he planned to sell them to restaurants in the poorer areas of the city where they would most likely be used in sausages.

Police have now launched an investigation into the discovery of the dog corpses which they say were 'slaughtered, skinned and prepared for processing into sausages'.

Dog ownership and consumption has been a controversial topic in Morocco, a strictly Islamic country, in recent years.

In January 2009, a restaurant owner in Casablanca was jailed for six years for selling dog meat presented as beef to his customers.

During the investigation, the man confessed to preparing the dog meat with chemicals to mask the smell and colour of it.

His four accomplices were sentenced to between eight months and four years in prison.

Unequal distribution of wealth in society and unethical run away greed for high profits at any cost and by all means. Recently it was also found out in China that some businesses were processing packing and distributing Rat and Fox meat. What will soon follow the trend?? :shock:
