      Summer is the time of the year when many Koreans tuck into bowls of
      dog meat soup, or "boshintang," claiming that it helps them beat the
      stifling heat.

      What may come as a surprise to many animal rights groups and others
      that oppose the practice, one-third of those who enjoy the traditional
      dish actually turned out to be dog owners, according to a nationwide
      survey.

      In a survey conducted by a radio program that questioned 500 people,
      35.6 percent of the people who own dogs said they enjoy having a bowl
      of boshintang. The survey results also revealed the number of men who
      favored dog meat more than doubled the figure for women.
