The North Korean dictator has suggested the dish is rich in vitamins and is good for the stomach and intestines
Tyrant Kim Jong-un has hailed DOG MEAT as a superfood to try and encourage more of his starving population to eat pups.
The North Korean leader is encouraging everyone to eat more dog meat, suggesting it contains more vitamins than chicken, beef, pork and duck.

According to North Korean YouTube propaganda channel DPRK Today, the dish is a traditional "stamina food" and is good for the stomach and intensines.

The Korea Times reports that the channel also encourages people to beat the dog to death, before removing its fur and scorching it.

Despot Kim has warned his people they may have to go on "an arduous march" - the name for the four-year famine which killed millions in the 1990s.
The obese dictator loves gorging on European cheese and fine wines while two-thirds of his people struggle to survive on reduced state food handouts.
Amnesty International said recent reductions in the state-controlled handouts have “severely threatened” the majority of the nation from getting enough to eat.
