The cops caught up with the tractor and tried to pull it over, but the driver refused to stop

The broadcaster is said to have proclaimed: “The contest showed a part of our excellent traditions and customs. 

Jaka said: "I don't buy many kinds of food.

It points to North Korea’s media producing a string of stories about the health benefits of canine meat, particularly during the “dog days” of summer.

The item is freshly cooked and she is handed some chopsticks to eat it with.

It quoted a recent North Korean radio broadcast by Tongil Voice radio, that stated: “There's an old saying that even a slice of dangogi can be good medicine during the dog days. It shows our people's love for dangogi and that dangogi is the finest of all medicines, especially during the dog days when the weather is scorching.”

A soldier in the traditional brown uniform is eating food at the counter and looks up to see the pair filming.

Using the word hunger has been banned in North Korea, with regime leaders ordering the population to use such terms as the Arduous March to make their suffering feel like a patriotic pilgrimage.

But what the film also reveals is the strange atmosphere and barren roads.

"Since we are Muslim, my wife and I try to be careful in choosing food.

He then films at another stall, which also has a woman serving, and has a much larger range of meals, served up in white polystyrene dishes.

He then pans round to reveal the sparsely populated streets with concrete buildings and snow on the ground.

"We only buy food that contain vegetable or seafood or rice and flour."

North Korea’s answer to a reality cookery show has been recently witnessing contestants creating dishes out of the animals, while in the capital of Pyongyang a dog meat restaurant recently opened.

The way that dogs are being singled out as a new superfood in Kim Jong-Un’s communist state may be a major turning point in the campaign to stop the animals being eaten by South Koreans.

Across the heavily fortified border, South Korea is also under fire for its controversial Bok Nal Days festival which sees millions of dogs being turned into a blood cooling soup for the hottest days of summer.

“It also took place in a timely manner considering we've been improving our living and culinary culture in line with our goal of building a highly-civilised socialist state.”

Jaka Parker set out to buy food from street stalls in Pyongyang, capital of Supreme Leader Kim Jong Un's nation.

Cooked dog – called “dangogi” or sweet meat in Korean – is also being described to the country’s starving masses as having more vitamins than chicken, pork, beef and duck as well as having medicinal benefit for the stomach and intestines.

Another radio broadcaster in the North Korean capital of Pyongyang has been holding culinary competitions where contestants made stews and other recipes from dog.

In a July report, the Korean Central Television (KCTV) said a reopened dog meat restaurant in Pyongyang is "being successful in making dog meat more unique.”

As the footage shows, Jaka can be seen approaching the first stall to buy some sushi-like roll of rice wrapped in what looks like seaweed.

"The notion that beating dogs to death and torturing them to improve the flavour of the meat, is truly shocking but sadly it's a perception not uncommon in some parts of Asia. It leads to the utterly brutal treatment of these poor animals for human consumption.

Food Of North Korea

Would you eat North Korean food? Should you eat North Korean food? Yes, there's food there.

Humane Society International has been working in South Korea for the last few years to shut down farms, rescue dogs and lobby for an end to this outdated practice that is widely and increasingly condemned by the SouthKorean public.

In fact, outside of North Korea, it's next to impossible to try a sampling of Pyongyang's culinary classics, unless you're in Vietnam of course. Vietnam has everything these days. With all the political issues surrounding North Korea, nobody really talks about their cuisine. But the question remains, is it good? I went to find out.

This footage recorded in the secretive world of North Korea by a man and his wife offers a rare glimpse into the Hermit Kingdom's culture - specifically its street food.

To make the pet meat even tastier, dogs should be beaten, flayed and then scorched, says the reviled despot. 

A critical article in the Korea Times, South Korea’s oldest English-language newspaper, is highlighting the way Kim Jong-un’s regime is heavily promoting dog as a superfood.

Wendy Higgins from Humane Society International/UK said:  "There is no truth to the statement that eating dog meat is healthy, this is a complete fallacy. In fact, far from being a ‘superfood', there is evidence spanning decades of the significant human health risk posed by slaughtering and eating dogs, with warnings issued by the World Health Organisation of links between the practice and outbreaks of rabies and cholera in other countries. 

Feeding dog to the starving masses is one answer to its food shortages, and the country’s heavily-controlled media appears to have been given the nod from on high to promote canine meat.

Famine in the communist dictatorship, the result of floods and droughts as well as economic management failings, has been blamed for the deaths of up to 300,000 people during 1990s.
