A video still image of the Chinese men with the dog.

Chinese restaurants in Trinidad and Tobago (T&T) are now being scrutinised after a video of a dog being skinned went viral.

Reports from the twin island republic are that the video, which was posted on social media, appear to involve Chinese nationals preparing a dog near a restaurant in Diego Martin, Trinidad.

As a result, the country’s health minister, Dr. Fuad Khan, has urged caution about Chinese food.

According to a T&T TV station, citizens are “being urged to exercise extreme caution” when purchasing food from Chinese restaurants.

St. Lucia News Online shared the video on its Facebook page on Wednesday as the Video of the Day.

  1. I feel the Chinese need to take their disgusting habits back to their own country. They are a danger to not only animals but humans alike. So sad.....uncivilized. I'm sorry for the dog...

  5. In this City, Chinese restaurant was closed down after discovering that dog food was being served as regular meat.

  8. All i can say,our fore-fathers never told us this was part of our caribbean culture.So,it will always sound strange when we have heard other cultures are engaged in this unusual circumstances like eating dogs.How about snakes?Some of that,too comes with making money.What,we are used too thats not what the chinese are cooking for us except chicken with chowmein.An example is thee opposum.I've never heard chinese going there.Perhaps,has alot more work because not anybody can clean and cook it.

  13. The Chinese in Trinidad only prepare dog for themselves, they do not sell it in their restaurants. They see it as high quality meat that for some reason westerners find taboo. If you have grade a steak and your customers want cheap chicken why would you try to pass off the steak as chicken. The minister's caution is unwarranted.
