Chicken Run

A restaurant boss has told how business really pecked up when he put a bizarre dish on the menu - where diners watch dogs chase and kill the chickens they're about to eat.

Cruel Cui Feng - whose remote restaurant is at the foot of Huzhua Mountain, Hubei province, central China - claims customers can't get enough of the dish, which translates from Mandarin as 'Puppy Catches Chicken.'

"The dogs love it and so do the customers," he explained.

"They either catch the chicken and bring it to the kitchen or chase it down the mountain to where the cooks are waiting to lop off the chickens head and put it in the pot.

"What the dogs like is that they get the leftover chicken to eat afterwards," added Cui.

But he denies that the dish is cruel.

"The chickens will die anyway, so they don't care.

"And the people did a good meal and they get good entertainment at the same time – that is why the dishes so popular," he explained.
