here, they just throw these hamsters on the grill
WARNING: THIS BLOG MAY BE DISTURBING TO SOME. IF YOU ARE OFFENDED BY IMAGES OF HAMSTERS BEING COMPRIMISED, PLEASE CLOSE THIS BLOG IMMEDIATELY. I DIDN'T MEAN TO OFFEND ANYONE, ONLY TO EXPOSE THE REALITY THAT HAMSTERS ARE NOT TREATED EQUALLY THE WORLD OVER. SO PLEASE CLOSE THIS WINDOW RIGHT AWAY FOR YOUR OWN BENEFIT. THANK YOU.



Yes indeed, it is the humans who traffic the hamsters. You see, in Colombia, hamsters are free to choose their own bowl and if you put your money on it, you win! (See the hamster races) But now I must expose the seedy underbelly of Ecuador, and enlighten you to what happens to these adorable hamsters when they are exported south of the border.

An important note, my sister pointed out to me that these aren't hamsters; technically they are guinea pigs. But what is the difference between hamsters and guinea pigs really? I think it's that hamsters are chewier. Although it could be the other way around. Which reminds me, when I was a kid we had a hamster named Porky...or maybe it was a guinea pig. Ah yes, it was. I told my kindergarten class about my guinea pig

in Colombia, hamsters live a free and happy life.
named Porky, and they all laughed, including the teacher. I didn't get it. I never got it. Not until just now. What grim foreshadowing for the woeful tale which I must tell!

Please, let me warn you first that this blog is not for the fainthearted. It is indeed a trip into the heart of darkness, perhaps of the whole world, in which you will see what is the most primitive human instinct...I'll not hide it from you any longer! They eat the hamsters!

It's horrible, I know, yet utterly delicious. I had to have a try for myself to see if it truly was as depraved and delectable as you might imagine. Well, it kinda tastes like chicken with a little pork flavor, if I remember correctly. But I digress.

So please, if you care about these adorable hamsters, call us now, at 555-HAMSTER. Oh no, I just realized something else. HAMsters! The horror, the horror! And guinea PIGS. Were these poor animals designed and designated just to be exploited? Why, their name is all over it.

Only you can help. Call now. 555-DELICIOUS. Oops, I mean, that's 555-GUINEAS. Orders come with fries and a soda.

Loved this blog and I would have to agree with you that they are truly delicious. Though I think animal protection agencies would have something to say if you tried to do it at home!

THIS IS SICK SH*T!!!!!
This is some sick sh*t. I happen to breed guinea pigs not for eating but for pets. Why would you put those pictures up sicko. I don't mind the races in Colombia as those pigs look happy and healthy but Ecudador talk about a bunch of ignorant jerks. I can't believe leaving comments think this sh*t is OK. I am a total vegetarian so don't try to that crap that Americans eat cows, chickens, and pigs as I don't condone or agree with the eating of any animal.

Get over it
It's creepy to am American but i'm sure even some non meat stuff we eat might be creepy or odd to them. Get over it and stop fearing the unknown. Oh by the way ms vegeterian. Did you know plants scream when you cut them??? And bleed? Ever see the sap out of a broken stem? So, hush up about cruelty! No fur, no feelings? I think not. People are way too hung up on what is "normal". Thanks for sharing this if you ever check this blog. I noted it's quite old. Very interesting.

this is very wrong for guinea pigs
11th October 2010

How would you like to pick your bowl before someone ate you? Guinea pigs are very aware of their surroundings and people. They thrive on socializing with people and other animals. The horror they must experience while being killed. There's so much abuse that goes on all over the world with all animals. And it's proven by the US Fed govt that people who kill animals have major mental problems.

Ecuador, que barbaridad!

They just eat it like we eat chicken or cows or sheeps, litlle sheeps, little pigs, little chickens, en so on. So we are just the same. It's just another culture. They are not bad because they eat guney pigs, they are most of the time just hungry...

Hi
Okay so if people are so disgusted by these pictures, get off this blog. I love to eat guinea pigs! haha I'm Ecuadorian and was raised in Ecuador so that's all natural to me, like its natural for you guys to eat chickens. You know I don't see why any of you guys are in school, if you are, if you can't respect one's culture. Kind of sad. :)

Good Thoughts
Yes, I didn't really mean to cause so much controversy here. In different parts of the world, people eat different things. If you eat pigs, that's disgusting to Muslims and Hebrews. If you eat cows, that's horrible for Hindus. If you eat any animals that's terrible to some Buddhists and many vegetarians. Anyway I'm putting a disclaimer on this blog that it's graphic!

Judge not...
Don't be so quick to judge. Do you eat meat? If so, cows, pigs, and chickens are amazing animals as well, but you think it's ok to eat them. So unless you're a vegetarian...

People are accustomed to eating different things in different cultures. We should try to be more accepting of other cultures.
