Taking things a little too literally, a Moroccan man was jailed for six years for selling customers dog meat instead of beef, a judicial source said Friday.
The man, who admitted mixing the dog meat with chemicals to conceal the different smell and color, was also fined 10,000 dirhams ($1,185).
A Casablanca court also sentenced four other men to between eight months and four years in prison for their part in hunting and shooting the dogs.
Last year in Egypt a butcher was arrested for selling donkey and horse meat disguised as beef.
According to reports at the time the butcher would pick up dead or sick animals from canals, swamps or garbage dumps and add a chemical substance to cover up the smell.
