Err of the Dog



Amazing how poor pronunciation/a bad accent poor English can lead to a false story that caused a lot of panic.

Basically a reporter called up a Chinatown Meat Market, the person answered said he did not know English, and was asked if they sold dog. The person thought he meant duck meat, so he answered yes.  WCO then aired a sotry, that was picked up by the NY Post, than then NY's state agriculture department searched the market and found no dog meet.

Here’s the Transcript of WCCO’s Notorious Chinatown Dog Meat Story - Media Bistro
